===========================================

This is round robin tournament style!! We will try to get 3 courts and 12 members total. We will play one set of double game and the winner will advance to the next court toward court #1 and the loser will downgrade one court toward court #3. 

Overall we will play a total of 3 sets. One set equals 6 games. In order to have a fast pace rotation. If any of the 3 courts that finish their Set first will rise up their flag and when that happen, the other 2 courts will have to play their last game for that set and they cannot finish their set. Their score will be final. By doing this all 3 courts can rotate together at a fast pace rather then waiting for the other courts to finish their set which can take a long time.

Fresh new tennis balls will be provided. I will match up everyone the best i can base on their level.

If you can not make it Please change your RSVP so that someone that's on the waiting list will get to play. 

*As a requirement u must be a 3.0 and up 

Please rate yourself and make sure u qualify to join this meetup!!!
