All Levels Doubles @ Pullen 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?
From off of Ashe avenue, take the Pullen Park entrance (Adaba dr) all the way to the end of the road. The tennis courts are on the hill you see in front of you on your left. Park and take the walkway to the courts.

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.

    Sounds like we might get some tennis in then.

    July 31, 2013

  • Andy M.

    I work by the state fairgrounds and it hasn't rained over here since about 4:30. Sky is overcast with the sun peeking out and the radar does not show any storms close to Raleigh

    July 31, 2013

  • Rob L.

    Rain has stopped in Downtown Raleigh - Sun is back out. Can't speak for Pullen Park, although it looks sunny in that direction from my office.

    July 31, 2013

  • David S.

    It was pouring here at Northhills area, but it already stopped. Is it still going near Pullen?

    July 31, 2013

  • Susan C.

    Bummer- it is pouring in North Raleigh. When do we "call it" for tonight?

    July 31, 2013

  • Robert

      Hi Eileen, it was a pleasure having you with us this Summer. I wish you a great school year this Fall, and hope you'll return again.

    Plan B - Since a little rain cloud seems to hover over many a Wednesday night this season, here's a Plan B for those that would like to still meet in the event that tennis is unplayable:

    The OC Bar & Grill • 1028 Oberlin Rd. Raleigh, NC 27605 • (919)[masked] - Wednesday Trivia Night Starts at 8:00PM with drink specials all night. www.theocraleigh.com

    Everyone let's hope for sun, but if not we'll go out and have some fun!
