Fall Tournament League Announcement

Play will begin on Tuesday, August 29th

Since we are getting a late start on the Fall tournament this year, we have decided to run it with one key change:  each round will last 10 days instead of 14 days.  This should allow us to complete the tournament in 60-70 days (just over two months).

With this in mind, please be sure to register only if you are able to commit to a one match every ten days schedule (using subs as needed). Experience has shown that this is typically not a problem as long as you setup your matches right away 

Also be aware that the weather can be unpredictable and you may need to play a match at an indoor facility.  In these cases, each player is responsible for his or her own court fees.

Our target size for each division is 8 teams (or 8 players in the singles division).  Of course, if we fill the spots up quickly, we can expand these divisions to 16 teams/players.  Also, if we don’t quite fill a division, no worries; we can also run them with 4 or 6 teams (or players) using a round-robin format for the initial seeding draw.

The cost is $25 per player for doubles and $30 per player for singles.
