Coaches, before the match, decide the order in which the sets will be played. Each player on a team usually plays in at least one of the five sets. Team matches consist of five sets, with one set each of men's singles, women's singles, men's doubles, women's doubles and mixed doubles. Scoring is no-ad and game scoring is 1,2,3 game. The first team to reach five games wins each set. A nine-point tiebreaker is played, if a set reaches four-all. One point is awarded for each game won. If necessary, Overtime and a Supertiebreaker are played to determine the winner of the match. The league's season normally takes place in the summer months. Players from the ATP and WTA take a break from their tour schedules to partake in World TeamTennis.
  • Il World TeamTennis è un campionato tennistico statunitense a cui partecipano 8 formazioni. La lega fu fondata nel 1973 da George MacCall (che fu il primo commissioner), Larry King, Dennis Murphy (fondatore anche della World Hockey Association), Fred Barman con Jim Jorgensen (presidente della squadra nazionale dell'Unione Sovietica). La lega debuttò nel maggio 1974 con 16 squadre e terminò l'attività nel 1978. In origine, il formato della lega prevedeva un campo colorato senza righe, una stagione di 44 incontri e squadre formate da almeno 2 uomini e 2 donne che giocavano 5 partite sulla distanza di un solo set senza vantaggi. Si disputavano sfide sia in singolare (maschile e femminile) che in doppio (maschile, femminile e misto). Hanno preso parte a questo torneo campioni del calibro di Billie Jean King, Rod Laver, Björn Borg, Chris Evert, John McEnroe, Evonne Goolagong, Jimmy Connors, Martina Navrátilová, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Michael Chang, Lindsay Davenport e Kim Clijsters. Questa fu la prima esperienza di sport professionistico per Jerry Buss e per Bob Kraft. Elton John scrisse l'inno per i "Philadelphia Freedoms" e la nazionale sovietica divenne la prima squadra di quella confederazione a partecipare ad una lega statunitense. Nel 1981, tre anni dopo la sua scomparsa, la lega venne riallestita come TeamTennis e da allora ha coinvolto squadre fra un minimo di quattro ed un massimo di dodici a stagione fino ad oggi. Nel 1992 il nome fu cambiato in World TeamTennis (WTT). Billie Jean King divenne commissioner nel 1984 dopo il suo ritiro, lasciando poi la carica nel febbraio 2001 a Ilana Kloss, che la detiene tuttora.
