Summer Flex Season

  • June 24, 2014 · 2:00 PM

How does a ChiTownTennis Season / League run?
The league advertises the season dates and builds a queue of committed players for the season.

Kickoff Day - June 24th
The start day of the season, players are sent a kickoff email that contains important information about the league, the link where your league standings and players contact information. We guarantee 6 playing partners at your playing level, but have been averaging closer to 15+ partners in most cities.

Your Task - "Flexible Scheduling"
After this kickoff email is sent, it is the player's task to communicate with other players. Players should work with their partners to find an agreeable time and location to play the match. While ChiTownTennis doesn't mandate your playing schedule, it is recommended that players schedule at least one match per week. By request of the players, we started to allow players to play 1 rematch per season. The regular season is all about playing as much as you can. As of Jan. 1st, 2013 we've had 189 players play more than 20 matches in a season.

Where to Play?
Play at your local free tennis courts, tennis parks, condo courts or tennis clubs. The league strongly suggests that players jointly try to pick a tennis court location convenient to both. We provide an extensive list of tennis courts, including # of courts, lighting, hitting walls, etc. We strive to keep this list up-to-date.


How to Play?
Players can use three semi-standard playing formats: 2 out of 3 sets, 2 sets with 10 point super tie-breaker or the 10-game pro set (First to 10, used when court time is limited).


Playoffs
Each season concludes with a playoffs where players with anywhere from 3 to 5 season wins qualifies for a single elimination tourney. The champion is awarded based upon the league Prize Pool. Each singles league champion also receives a playing entry into the National Tourney which is already scheduled for Crandon Park Tennis Center in Key Biscayne - Nov. 1-3, 2014.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
