About the WTA

The Watertown Tennis Association was established in 1975 as an organization that allows our community to not only play tennis, but to interact socially with other members. Many members play year after year and remain friends with other members even when the cold Wisconsin winter blows in. The competition is good, but if you come and watch any of our matches on Wednesday nights at Brandt-Quirk Park, you will also see that we have a lot of fun as well.

The league currently has three levels of play: advanced, intermediate, and beginner. Not sure what level you're at? Take a look at the descriptions below to get an idea of what each level is like. If you are still unsure and you pick a level that isn't right for you, you can always change levels next year for common competition.

  • Beginner: Able to sustain a rally, place some shots, and get serves into play.
  • Intermediate: Improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots, but not as consistent as advanced level. First serve should have good pace.
  • Advanced: Good shot placement, consistent groundstroke rally, and consistent serve. Good use of volleys and overheads as well.

Here is a copy of the USTA’s NTRP rating poster if you would like to estimate your NTRP rating.

Please note that if there are not enough members interested in a particular level, you may have to be moved to another skill level. If you need advice on placement, feel free to contact watertowntennis@gmail.com.

Matches are held at Brandt-Quirk Park starting in May and ending in August.

Women’s doubles play at 6pm (7pm if needed), mixed doubles play at 7pm (8pm if needed), and men’s doubles play at 8pm (9pm if needed). When all registration forms are in, teams will be counted and we will determine if there will be a need for overlap on times (there are 10 courts available per hour).

Singles matches are "Call to Schedule" format. Players contact opponents the week before each scheduled match to set up a date a time.

We all have a lot of fun with the WTA. If you or someone you know would be interested in joining us, please check out the "Join the WTA" page or email watertowntennis@gmail.com to get more information.
