The Atlantic Cup is a team tennis competition between LGBT tennis groups from Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington DC. Teams compete against each other in both singles and doubles, earning points for each match won. The team with the most points wins the competition and becomes holder of the Atlantic Cup.
Please see the chart below for description of divisions. It is the sole responsibility of each individual player to enter the division most appropriate for his or her ability. Rule of thumb: when in doubt about which division is most appropriate for you, ask one of the team organizers. Deference will be given to player preferences and GLTA rankings. The team organizers, however, reserve the right to move participants to a different division should player history and additional criteria warrant it.
