USTA Division s

Re: USTA Teams

What's the biggest difference in a Division 1 and Division 2 team?
(and I already know they play totally different teams)

Re: USTA Division s

Are you referring to NCAA Division I and Div II schools? All the "USTA" teams/leagues around here are demarcated by rating.

I love my girls.

Re: USTA Division s

I'm referring to the women's doubles leagues. Under a 3.0 team, it lists Div 1 with different teams than Div 2 with other teams. Just wondered how the teams were divided? Based on what?

Re: USTA Division s

Division I and II usually refers to college athletics. When talking about USTA leagues, usually the NTRP rating is used. For example, a 3.0 league would be a beginner team, and a 5.0 league would be for more advanced players.

Re: USTA Division s

I was told that this 3.0 adult league was too large so they divided it into two divisions: Div 1 and 2. But I'm wondering if one Division is stronger than the other?

Re: USTA Division s

Sorry, I've been AWOL recently.

A USTA league that's been divided...is just that...divided. We actually call them "flights" instead of "divisions" here in the Richmond area. The league coordinator is responsible for "dividing" up the teams and around here, I know they make the effort to even things out as much as possible. For instance, if you have some well-established teams and some new-to-the level teams...they would divide them equally.

I love my girls.
