Fall Flex Season

  • Aug 28, 2013 · 2:00 PM

How does a TennisNewYork Season / League run?

The league advertises the season dates and builds a queue of committed players for the season.

Kickoff Day - August 28th

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 TennisNewYork 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.


Special Note for NYC tennis players: We don't have any special privileges to use the courts throughout New York City. You do need to follow by the rules provided by the Parks Department. How to reserve tennis courts in NYC: NYC Park & Rec.

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, 2013.

Join Today!!

Full price is $29.95 to play in a season, BUT the earlier you sign up we typically offer discounts during these tougher economic times. Just go to the Join Page and complete the short form. We'd be happy to find you dedicated tennis playing partners.

    So I'm new to this. The description said we were going to get a kick off email with information, but all I got was an email with 6 people listed. Is that all the info that was supposed to be provided?

    the event says tomorrow, but there's no place. I'll just put that there are free courts by the Hudson River just south of Houston Street. Hard surface, if that matters. Anyone want to try for this weekend – Saturday at noon? doubles preferably. I've been rated 3.5, so if you know you're somewhere around that…
