Play will start May 2nd and runs for 18 weeks including playoffs. Matches start at 7:00 PM. Your matches will be at pre-scheduled times. If you cannot play regularly, you may still join the “sub” list. Kristin Arpin and assistant captains will coordinate play. A great way to get to meet other players.

GENERAL LEAGUE DETAILS:
You do not require a doubles partner to register for this program – you sign up as a “single.”
This league is “gender blind,” which means 1, 2 , 3 or 4 males/females could be on a particular court each league night.
Each week by Monday (the latest), the league Convener will email out the time slots for the “playing” roster, and also the “sub” roster (those not scheduled to play).
You’ll be assigned a court with 3 other players on week #1 (based on your assessed level) and then you’ll move up or down courts based on a “Progressive” format there- after
PROGRESSIVE FORMAT: Each league night you will attempt to play with each of the other 3 players assigned to your court for 1 rotation of 6 games and 1 tiebreak each. When your 90 minute time slot expires you will report the total number of games you won to the convener. 1st place moves up a court the following week. 4th place moves down a court….2nd/3rd place remain on the same court.
