There is already a wait list of 60 players. As players leave the group new ones will be admitted. Because this is mixed doubles and our current membership is only 25% women, women members at a 3.5 level+ will be admitted first.
The main purpose of this meet up group is to put together players at a"3.5" level and above to play mixed doubles tennis and have fun. Although matches can get competitive, we rotate out partners after each set so that everyone gets to play with different people. Our players are of all ages from recent college graduates to parents with kids in college.
Please note however that our members want to play those with similar abilities and this meet up is not for beginners. Most of our players are 3.5 players with several at the 4.0 level.
Players are also expected to bring and open a new can of balls at least once every four sign-ups.
There is a $5 annual fee to cover the costs of the monthly fees that Meet-Up charges to maintain the website. All new members have a 90 day trial period.
Since we play on Fairfax County Schools courts, we cannot reserve them. There are 7 courts and we normally use 2-5 courts depending on the number of people showing up. If we have an odd number of people showing up, don't worry, one court will play Canadian doubles. We divide up into groups of 4 by selecting cards (Aces, Kings, Queens, Jacks) . After each court completes their set, we divide up again by selecting cards. This allows everyone a fair chance to play with other players.
We will play year round as the weather permits.
Also, please remember to bring a water bottle, there are no water fountains. There are Porta Johns located on the soccer field. Illegal parking is being enforced, so please park in the parking lot and not the fire lanes.
Please message me if you ever have any questions.
To get to the courts, turn off of Main Street on to Whitacre Rd, take the 2nd left into the parking lot, walk up to the courts. You will see the 7 blue courts at the bottom of the picture.
