NEW!  MIXED DOUBLES EVENT at MTC

We are launching a new March Tennis Club MIXED DOUBLES EVENT on MONDAY NIGHTS from 6pm – 8pm for Intermediate to Advanced Players (please note that this will be via ADVANCE SIGN-UP ONLY).

We are going to be running a TRIAL session from July 6-20 (3 weeks) and will be looking for 6 – 8 Mixed Doubles pairings. Everyone must sign-up with a PARTNER (no individual registrations will be accepted). We will also be taking up to 4 teams as spares.  If successful, we will run a second session for the rest of the summer and make it a NEW permanent EVENT on Monday nights.

RULES & REGULATIONS and INSTRUCTIONS on how to sign-up:

Overview

·       There are 6-8 pairs registered with probably another 3-4 pair spares

·       3-4 courts are used for a 2 hour period

·       3 matches are played for 40 minutes each or whichever teams wins the set (set is a regular 6 games set)

·       If  time expires, then whichever team is in the lead wins

·       In general, the winners move up a court and the losers move down a court (See below for details)

·       Over time there will be a “seeding” that becomes apparent and the stronger teams will start on Court 1 and weaker teams on Court 4.

·       (Please NOTE: after COVID restrictions and concerns loosen, we may have teams SPLIT partners after each round. However, for the TRIAL session we will be keeping teams together as per sign-up to limit member exposure).

Court Relegation

·       Court 1 – Winners stay, Losers move to Court 2

·       Court 2 – Winners move up to Court 1, Losers move down to Court 3

·       Court 3 – Winners move up to Court 2, Losers move down to Court 4

·       Court 4 – Losers stay, Winners move up to Court 3

Implementation

·       All teams need to sign-up and commit to July 6-20th for the TRIAL SESSION.

·       If you are not able to attend, you need to find subs from the available spares. THIS IS A MUST for everyone, as having signed-up you have stated your 3 week commitment.

·       There will be a nominal $10 charge per team when registering. The fee is to cover the cost of NEW tennis balls and to also guarantee your team’s registration.

Covid-19 Concerns

·       Only sign-up if you are comfortable playing against different teams.

·       Everyone will be asked to bring hand sanitizer and encouraged to use it at after each round. Obviously, there are no high fives or handshakes and physical distancing will  be expected at all times.

If you are interested, please sign-up by logging onto your MTC CourtReserve account and clicking on EVENTS at the top of the screen. Please note that if your level is not INTERMEDIATE to ADVANCED then we may inform you that you do not qualify. Please REMEMBER that you must indicate the name of your PARTNER and that only ONE of you should sign-up the team.

REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE THURSDAY, JULY 2nd…..so book your spot NOW!!!
