What’s the cost?
As a new platform, we try to keep MTL free of charge as long as possible. Our goal is to get you playing, not to get you paying!
When does each season start and what are the deadlines to register?
How do I assess my own skill level?
Level 1: You have limited experience and are working primarily on getting the ball in play.
Level 2: You are learning to judge where the ball is going, although your court coverage is limited. You can sustain a short rally of slow pace with other players of the same ability.
Level 3: You have achieved improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots, but need to develop depth and variety. You exhibit more aggressive net play, have improved court coverage and are developing teamwork in doubles.
Level 4: You have developed your use of power and spin and can handle pace. You have sound footwork, can control depth of shots, and attempt to vary game plan according to your opponents. You can hit first serves with power and accuracy and place the second serve. You tend to overhit on difficult shots. Aggressive net play is common in doubles.
Level 5: You have mastered power and/or consistency as a major weapon. You can vary strategies and styles of play in a competitive situation and hit dependable shots in a stress situation. You can bring variety into your serves and get the ball where you want it to be, without unforced errors on aggressive shots. You’re secretly asking yourself if you could win a cheeky game if you played Rafa on a good day.
I’m already MyBigPoint / DTB member, can you group me automatically?
Yes. In that case, please mention your MyBigPoint username / ID or DTB membership number instead or on top of your Self-Assessment Skill Level. We will query your LK for you and group you automatically.
I’m a beginner and have no match experience. Can I join anyways?
Yes. If you register as beginner (Level 1), we’ll group you in a league with other beginners. The league will be without scheduled matches, but we will help you find a suitable coach and you’ll be able to find suitable players in your league to hit some balls with them or practice matches.
What happens after I register?
We group you into a league with opponents with similar skill level. For example the grouping for the next winter season happens until 25 December (registration deadline). After that, we share the contact details of the members of your league so you can schedule the matches for the next three months.
What’s the match format?
3 hours: Best of 3
2 hours: Best of 3 with 3rd set Tie Break
1 hour: 1 set
6:4, 4:6, 7:5
6:4, 4:6, 7:2 (3rd set Tie Break)
7:6 (7th game Tie Break)
How does the point system work in the league?
Okay… but what’s the incentive for winning?
Where can I book courts?
You can find links to the booking systems of the respective clubs / courts under “Book Court”. We work exclusively with courts and clubs where you can book courts on an hourly basis without having to join a club or pay a membership fee.
How do I submit the scores?
Either player can submit the scores after having played the match. We trust you to be honest. When you’re logged in, under “My Account –> Matches & Results”, you can find all scheduled matches where under “Results”, you can submit your score. Alternatively you can find all scheduled matches under your player profile. After your score has been submitted, a member of our team will approve and publish within 24h.
