Men’s & Women’s Registration Deadline is Tuesday, May 27
–Program Begins June 2
Team Tennis begins the week of June 2 and continues through August. Registration deadline is Tues., May 27. Late Registrants will be assigned to teams only if space is available. Team Tennis is open to Season Pass Holders only. Non-Season Pass Holders can sub if they pay the Guest fee up to 2 times, but cannot play in the championship match.
Three Divisions play on the following evenings:
Men’s – Monday, 6 to 8 p.m.
Women’s – Tuesday, 6 to 8 p.m.
Mixed – Thursday, 6 to 8 p.m.
At each weekly match, one team is designated the Home Team and the other is the Visitor Team. Teams alternate bringing food, beverages and new cans of tennis balls to each match. Each team plays 2 matches: 6-7 pm and 7-8 pm. Everyone plays at least one match, and may play both matches. Play begins at 6 pm, so plan to arrive by 5:45 pm so the captains can set the line-ups.
The Visitor Team must submit their line-up to the Home Team before 6:00 pm for match 1 and before 7:00 pm for match 2. Players will be defaulted if not on the courts ready for play at 6:10 pm / 7:10 pm. Warm-up is 10 minutes, and play is 50 minutes. Players with the most total games won in each hour match, win a point for their team. Tiebreaker, if needed, is the most games won overall during the evening. When the bell rings at 7 pm and 8 pm, players should complete games with no-ad scoring. If the score in games is tied when the bell is rung, a 9-point tiebreaker decides the winner. Team captains can collaboratively modify the format of the matches, e.g., teams can decide to play 1 singles and 3 doubles matches, or 4 doubles matches.
Team Tennis Commissioners: Dave Wech (Men’s), JoEllen Reed (Mixed), and Irene O’Connor (Women’s).
