Columbus Platform Tennis League Information

The league is now starting its seventh year. There are two new teams this year. Lakes will have two 3.0 teams - Lakes-1 and Lakes-A and so will New Albany - New Albany-1 and New Albany-A. The 4.0 teams remain the same. Because of the difficulty in fielding courts on a regular basis, the 3.0 teams will have just two courts per contest. There will be detailed player information kept for both leagues and the winner of the 3.0 League will be determined by the number of courts won rather than by the number of matches.

If you are unsure in which group you belong, take a look at the new APTA's Player Self-Rating Assessment Tool. The 4.0 players will normally be 3.5 to 4.5 range. The 3.0 players are in the 2.5 to 3.5 range. Rate yourself, but also rate a friend who is better than you and a player who is worse than you to gain a better understanding of what you need to do to improve.
