MTTL is a predominately men's tennis league based on friendly competition between teams across the middle TN area. Play is on Thursday nights from early May until the end of August, using a home and away format. Each team match consists of 4 singles matches which begin at 6:00pm followed by 4 doubles matches as courts become available. Since a player can only play doubles or singles on any given Thursday, each team needs 12 players for each match.
For 2017, there are 24 teams split into 3 divisions. Although MTTL is a non-USTA league, the levels of play are equivalent to approximately 4.5 for Division 1, 4.0 for Division 2 and 3.5 for Division 3. At the top positions (#1 singles or #1 doubles, for example), players may be slightly higher than the noted NTRP ratings; similarly at the lower positions, players may be slightly below the noted NTRP rankings. No ad scoring is used for all singles matches, and for doubles in Division 1 only. A match tie-breaker (first to 10 points with a margin of 2) is played in lieu of a 3rd set.
