Addition of Losantiville Means 24 More Spots
With the late addition of Losantiville CC as a site, the league opened 24 additional spots - 4 have since been filled. Good fits with our current group are experienced Men's D-2 & upper court D-3 players, upper tier women's D-1, and inexperienced 4.5+ men's tennis players or 5.5+ women's tennis players. Players experiencing organized PT for the first time, do not pay at the beginning. I will make sure they get some informal sessions in before league play as well. Contact me if you or someone you know would like to get involved.
Follow The Form Exactly When 5 Players
This was the first night for play at multiple sites. For the most part, things went smoothly. But, one of the groups at Losantiville somehow figured out a way to botch the format. When there are five players on the court - always follow the exact order of play listed on the sheet. Do not modify it. It is designed so that everybody will play exactly one set with each of the other players. You will not play every possible combination when there are 5 players. No player will sit out twice. Also, have the location admin assign the numbers - not one of the players - there are advantageous spots to choose on the sheet & the process is meant to be random.
