April 7, 2019 â   USTA NTRP Nationals 50 & Over Menâ  s & Womenâ  s Doubles 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5  at Surprise Tennis & Racquet Complex in Surprise, Arizona.

Thirty-two tennis players from across the country were named NTRP champions on Sunday at the 18 & Over and 50 & Over NTRP Doubles National Championships. 


Winners were crowned in men's and women's doubles at the tournament, which was held at the Surprise Tennis & Racquet Complex in Surprise, Ariz., and at the Academia Sanchez-Casal in Naples, Fla. 


The NTRP Nationals leverage the NTRP rating system as a way to create level-based competition in the 18-&-over and 50-&-over age groups. 


The National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) is the official system for determining the levels of competition for the USTA League tennis program. The USTA NTRP Computer Rating System assigns ratings based on play in the local league and at the championship level during the current league year.



The NTRP Nationals featured round-robin draws that led into non-elimination playoffs. A best-of-three-short-sets format was played, with no-ad scoring and a tiebreak at three-all. If a tiebreak came into play, it was the first to five points, win by one.
