All Levels Doubles @ Optimist Park

  • May 1, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • Optimist Park

Who is welcome?
Men and Women: 2.5 and above
2.5: Modest consistency. This player is learning to judge where the ball is going, although court coverage is weak. Can sustain a short rally of slow pace with other players of the same ability.

Timeline:
6:30 Say hello, pay $3 fee and warmup on any open court (new balls provided)
6:40 I'll huddle everyone together, do introductions and get things started
8:30 Tennis Ends

Where are the courts?
At the rear of the parking lot behind Sanderson High School on Dixon Drive. Dixon Drive is off of Millbrook near Six Forks Rd. in North Raleigh.

What happens to the money I pay?
Your $3 event fee goes towards new balls, court reservations, liability insurance, and meetup.com website fees.

How does the waiting list work?
Members on the waiting list receive an email whenever a Yes spot opens up. Whoever responds first gets in. This format is to cut down on the number of people that unknowingly get moved off the waiting list then don't show up.

What is your RSVP policy?
Your RSVP of "Yes" is a commitment and you are expected to show up.  If you no-show or change your RSVP very late, penalties may be levied. Please contribute to the success of each event by honoring your RSVP.

What is a No-Show
A person that RSVPs Yes, but doesn't show up or a person that drops out of an event within 4 hours of an event (some exceptions exist)

What isn't a No-Show
Absence when there is a huge chance of rain

What happens if I don't show up
If you've attended 5 or less events, you risk being removed from the group after picking up 2 no-shows. If you're a regular member, you will be banned for a month if you acquire 2 no-shows in 4 months. You will be banned for a year if you acquire 4 no-shows in 5 months.

What happens if I arrive late
If you arrive more than 10 minutes from the event start time you are not guaranteed to play. The organizer reserves the right to turn you away if your presence would make numbers odd.

      At 3:33 p.m., the pavement is mostly wet. The forecast says 0% chance of rain, but the forecast has been wrong all day. The sky is full of grey clouds.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
