Mylan WTT Firsts & Innovations

Since its inception in the early 70s, Mylan WTT has been an innovator in the sports world. Many of Mylan WTT’s novel rules have been designed to make the game a “fan-friendly” sport and are finally starting to be recognized and adopted by others in the industry.

The fan experience at a Mylan WTT match is simply not like anything you’ve ever seen on a tennis court. It’s loud, exciting, and innovative. Mylan WTT is all about the fans – it’s a little bit rock n’ roll and a whole lot of fun.
 
With a fascinating history of firsts, in novations and an emphasis on gender equity, Mylan World TeamTennis stands out among all professional sports leagues. Here are a few of the reasons why:
