Davisville RANDOM Tournament
Great weather and good times in the forecast! Sign up is now open for the first ever Davisville RANDOM Tournament. What is this? Well, read on ... ALL members at Davisville are invite to play in one very large tournament at the club. Female and male members of the club will be grouped together to play in a doubles format tournament.
How will it work? Once we have confirmed the number of participants, we will do a completely random draw for partners. Teams will then play one set against one other team at the club. The winners will move on. The losers will be entered into a consolation round. Once our first round is done, teams will then be redrawn and teams will take the court to play the next round and so on until we have 4 players left, and they pair up, randomly, to determine the final match pairings ... and our winners!
We are hoping for about 100 participants for this one day and so talk to your friends, get them involved and be sure to sign up! There will be a $5 fee with food and fun throughout the day. This will be an extremely interesting and fun day and a great way to say goodbye to 2014!
SIGN UP HERE NOW! 60 registrants as of October 20.

Hey New Members! (and unrated old members)
DTC has a tag-up system for reserving court time. Each tag displays a member’s name and rating level which allows you to tag up with players of equal experience. Members without a rating level on their tag may have trouble reserving court time. Consequently, new members are strongly encouraged to get rated early in the season. A list of new member rating dates and times has been posted under the Play tab above, and will be posted in the Clubhouse. You can register for a session on Opening Day or with one of the court monitors.
The September and October NMR (new member rating) sessions will be held on:
Saturday, Oct. 4 - 10am NMR, 10:30am NMR, 11am NMR, 11:30am NMR, 12pm NMR, 12:30pm NMR, 1pm NMR, 1:30pm NMR
Make sure Alastair knows you're coming by emailing email@example.com
Important note - all Davisville members must be rated by the end of 2014 to be considered as a returning member. Also, unrated members will not be allowed to compete in Davisville tournaments. Re-rating sessions will be scheduled, usually for near the end of each month.
Want to get re-rated?
You've put in the time and practice and now think you're ready to move up. The next re-rating dates will be:
Saturday, August 30, 12 pm and 1 pm,
Saturday, September 27, 10am, 11am, and 12pm
(Note: Players must be available for all sessions on that date. Times will be assigned the week before the rating)
Please email Alastair at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your time!
Past champion? Ensure your legacy!
Davisville's permanent trophies haven't been updated in a decade, so we've embarked on a major engraving project. However, we're missing the names of some of the winners. If you've contested tournaments in the past, check out the "Past Winners" list on the bottom right side of the Tournament Page.
