An early preview of 2017 40 & over 3.0 Nationals - Current top teams in the country

I've written an early preview of Nationals for the 40 & over 3.5, 4.0, and 4.5+ levels, now it is time for the 3.0 men and women.

As usual, these previews use my Estimated Dynamic NTRP Ratings and reflect the current ratings I have for the top-8 players on each roster.  What is shown is the average of those top-8.

Here are the top-30 (and ties) women's teams.

It appears Birmingham is the hotbed of women's 3.0 tennis!  And Atlanta isn't far behind.  It may be tough to even make it to Sectionals.  But a bunch of other strong teams are out there, the full top-30 at 3.03 or higher.




And then the top-30 (and ties) men's teams.
