more than 110 members participate during the season!
Update: Since Doubles Tennis is not allowed per City rules, we cannot run this program yet. If this interdiction will lift soon, we will try our best to still organize it, probably with some modifications. More to come!
2020: back to Thursday nights!
House League had its debut few years ago and it was initiated in order to give our full members (only) an opportunity to play doubles tennis in a team atmosphere, in a competitive setting. Each season more than 110 members participate in this program. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost for this program is $20 for the entire season.
Important note: only players rated 3.0 and above can play in this event. In 2020 season, all matches are going to happen on Thursdays, after 7pm. The calendar for 2020 will be published soon.
