House League - general information

House League had its debut few years ago and it was initiated in order to give our members an opportunity to play doubles tennis in a team atmosphere, in a competitive setting. Players are divided in 6 teams, each team is squared against another team in Men’s Doubles, Ladies Doubles and Mixed Doubles. The captain of each team decides the line-up, but we encourage equal play. At the end of the season, we count the points and we declare a Winner! Each year the prize for the winning team changes, but in general the bragging rights are way above the value of the prize. You can sign up to play House League during Opening day or afterwards, either through our club stewards or by sending an email to Nina at Important note: only players rated 3.0 and above can play in this event. In 2019 season, all matches are going to happen on TUESDAYS, after 7pm. The calendar for 2019 will be published soon.
