Leagues:

Particulars:

  • Open to all members and depending on availability, to non-members who pay a surcharge over the regular league charge
  • Leagues will be promoted through flyers, posters, website and emails sent to prior year participants
  • Detailed information on every league can be found on flyers located on the flyer rack and tennis office or can consult the adult tennis programs
  • For every match, balls are provided by the service desk. Right after your match, please return used balls to the service desk

Registration:

  • All participants must complete and sign a registration form
  • Registration forms can be found on our website and also on the back of league flyers
  • If you are unsure about your level, please contact the appropriate league coordinator for placement
  • Once form is received, revised and processed, the league coordinator will confirm placement
  • This form should also include all dates a participant is not able to participate in a match

Format:

  • Sixty-minute leagues play eight-game pro sets and ninety-minute leagues play twelve-game pro sets
  • There will be a maximum 10 minute warm-up period
  • As long as it is mentioned in the beginning of a match, an opponent is entitled to a game for every 5 minutes a player is late
  • Play ends when the pro set is complete or when the bell rings
  • Points started – after first serve is hit – prior to the ring of the bell, count and must be completed
  • Incomplete games do not count for the final match result
  • The match result will be recorded, regardless of completion, following USTA guidelines. In cases of unforeseen conditions – extreme weather, power outages, etc… the “Good Faith Rule” will be applied

Schedule:

  • For most leagues, league schedule will be available online at www.leaguesforfun.com. A few leagues might use email to coordinate league schedule
  • Players will be scheduled or play on a minimum of two-thirds of the available league dates – 20 matches during the indoor leagues and 8 matches during the outdoor season
  • Once the schedule is released, it is the participants’ responsibility to check-in at the service desk prior to the start time and arrive to the court on-time
  • A participant is responsible for attending a match and if a substitute is needed, it is the participant’s responsibility to find one that fits her leagues level of play
  • To find a sub, please follow these guidelines:
    – “Reply to all” on league coordinator’s weekly email
    – Please also use another method of communication to contact league coordinator directly alerting him/her about the sub need
    – Contact Tennis Director and Assistant Tennis Director about the sub need
  • If the club’s “24-hour cancellation policy” is not respected, a late cancellation will be considered a “no-show” and the match will be forfeited. For cancellations on holidays, a 48-hour notice is expected; otherwise forfeiture of the match will stand
  • In case of a participant’s misconduct, including consistent “no-shows”, a participant may be expelled from the league and no refund will be granted
