Playing on Two Teams

Q. I'm rated 3.0 & a member on a 3.0 USTA league. I have been asked to join a 3.5 team... even though I'm a 3.0 player.

I would like to play on BOTH the 3.0 and 3.5 teams but I have been told that it is not possible to play on both teams. I checked the rules and can't find anything that states that playing on two different levels is prohibited. In fact, the closest thing I can find is *Rule 3.01H(5)C which states that "a player may play on more than one team within this division in the same season provided it is in separate local leagues."

Can you clarify this for me and let me know if I am eligible to play on both?

A. I submitted your question to the USTA Leagues Office: This is their response:

The section has the authority to allow you to play in both a 3.0 and a 3.5 team at the same time in the same local area. Your final answer must come from your Section office.

In general, most sections permit participation at two different NTRP levels in a given Division at the same time.
