Q: Can I Play on a WE and a WD Team at the Same Level?
A: Depends - Some Leagues Allow it. Those that do: 18+ Adult, 40+ Adult. The allowance occurs only when we have a minimum of 6 teams in the WD level, so players will need to wait until the the minimum 6 teams are online with a minimum of 6 players registered on each team before the system allows players to register for both teams.
Q: How Many 5.0s can I roster on a 4.5+ 40 & Over Adult Team?
A: 2.01 LOCAL COMPETITION. 2.01A NTRP Levels of Play. 2.01A(1) When using straight NTRP levels, a player cannot have an NTRP rating higher than the NTRP level in which the player is competing except in the 5.0+ NTRP level of the Adult Division, 18 & Over and in the 4.5+ NTRP level of the Adult Division, 40 & Over. Adult Division, 18 & Over 5.0+ team rosters may include up to two (2) players from the next higher NTRP level. Adult Division, 40 & Over 4.5+ team rosters may include up to three (3) players from the next higher NTRP level. 2.01A(1)a In Plus (+) NTRP levels utilizing three individual matches within a team match, no more than one Plus (+) level player shall be allowed to play in a team match and shall be required to play in the #1 position, either singles or doubles. 2.01A(1)b In Plus (+) NTRP levels utilizing four or more individual matches within a team match, two Plus (+) level players may play in a team match and shall be required to play in the #1 position, either singles or doubles. *Clarification: The plus players can play in the #1 singles line and/or in the #1 doubles line.
Q: When are Schedules Out?
A: Always the Sunday night (late - around midnight), before the league starts. If it's a holiday weekend, they will be out the following Monday night. Unless a Captain requested a Team Bye Request (TBR) on the Team Information Sheet (TIS) the team must plan on playing the first week, even if schedules are delayed.
Q: What are the Start and Stop dates of the league?
A: Master Schedule and Deadline Date page of this website.
Q: When are OC Local League Playoffs?
A: Master Schedule and Deadline Date page of this website. Hosting Information is in the OC Local League Rules.
Q: When and where are Area/District Playoffs and Sectionals?
A: Linked on Master Schedule and Deadline Date page of this website.
Q: We have a player turning 40 in June. Is she allowed to be on winter league?
Q: How do I view my roster and/or see what teams have signed up?
A: To view your roster, go to www.orangecountyusta.com and click on the OC USTA LEAGUE Section on the right-hand side of the page. Then click on the league you are in. (If it prompts you to sign in, you'll need to do that.) Next, find your team, click on it and then click on the link in the upper right-hand side that says "Follow This Team." That will 'pin' the team to your Tennislink Home Page and you can access it easily next time.
Q: What do I do if my facility is not listed when I create my team?
A: Unfortunately, Tennislink does not repopulate the facilities, so we need to re-add them from scratch for each new season. The first captain to add a team at a facility will need to add that facility, which you do by clicking the 'other facility' box next to the drop-down menu (the one where your team does not show up). Next enter only minimal information of your site's name (because it has to match exactly, and you don't know exactly how your site is listed in TL.) For example, if your site is Laguna Niguel Racquet Club, only enter 'Laguna Niguel' and click the box that says 'find facilities.' A list of facilities will come up. Double-click on yours and you will be taken back to your original registration page and the facility you chose will be linked to your team, and you can then continue registering your player and creating your team.
