Some players may want to come earlier (to secure courts) or later, so please post your intended arrival time with your RSVP. When there are more than 4 players attending, instead of normal sets, we normally play 4 games and then rotate players in.
This event frequently attracts 8 or more players. If only one court is available at start time, after the first 4 players arrive, the other players are encouraged to sit on the outside-the-court waiting benches to be next in line for the second court. The first group, after playing their four games, should rotate in the new players, and replace them on the outside waiting benches.
Mesa Park courts are located in Summerlin South on the western edge of the valley. With easy access from the 215 Beltway at Russell or Tropicana, this is a convenient location for Summerlin and west side residents. Mesa Park is located on Mesa Park Drive, about a mile northwest of Russell Road and Hualapai Way.
Doubles, singles or practice, matching participation and interest.
Take the west 215 Beltway to the Russell Road exit. Take Russell to its end westward toward the mountains. Keep going uphill past Hualapai. At the second (last) "roundabout", turn right (north) on Mesa Park Drive.
Warning: if you turn left by mistake (south), you will arrive at the "private" Bishop Gorman High School courts instead.
Continue north on Mesa Park Drive a short way. Take the second left turn in to the Mesa Park parking area. The park also contains an active basketball court and a baseball field.
Directions from Tropicana:
Take Tropicana Blvd all the way west under the West 215 Beltway, to Hualapai. Continue west on Tropicana about 1/2 mile, turning left at South Town Center Drive (T junction). Proceed southwest until you reach a "roundabout". Go straight/left at the roundabout. You will now be on Mesa Park Drive and you should see Mesa Park. Proceed a short distance until you reach the entrance to the parking area on your right.
Directions from northwest:
Note: this is actually easier than it sounds, especially in daylight hours.
An alternate route from the northwest is to take the west 215 Beltway to the Summerlin "Town Center" exit. Follow Town Center Drive westward toward the mountains. Town Center will veer south.
At about 2 miles from the 215 exit, there will be a "T" junction. Do not go straight (this now becomes Tropicana). You need to turn right toward the mountains (southwest) to remain on Town Center Drive. After the right turn, proceed on this branch of Town Center Drive until you reach a "roundabout". Go straight/left at the roundabout. You will now be on Mesa Park Drive and you should see Mesa Park. Proceed a short distance until you reach the entrance to the parking area on your right.
It is a good idea to remember bottled water, tennis balls, etc.
