New Guidelines starting Thursday evening 4/23/2015:
All Players Note: To Eliminate wait times between sets and make play more efficient, this tennis meet up will be using a new format. We will be playing 25 minute time blocks for each set. THERE WILL BE ADD SCORING! (One exception will be NO ADD SCORING if a court is playing a 5 player rotation only). When each 25 minute time block has expired, ALL COURTS WILL STOP PLAY. The team ahead in the set score moves up one court and splits up. The other team moves down one court and splits up. The next time block starts immediately following the last. The set game scores may be a greater number than 6 games won. (Example 10-3, 9-4, 8-2, etc.) We will no longer be using the first team to reach 4 games won or 6 games won in a time block set. You continue to play until the set time expires. Upon the time expiration of the set, if both teams are tied at the same amount of games won, then the team with the most game points won in the present game being played breaks the tie. If there is a tie in the present game points, then ONE additional point will be played to break the tie. At each time block set expiration, a court that may be playing 2 on 1 (Australian Doubles), will draw from a bag of 3 tennis balls (event host will have) to determine which 2 players move up one court and which player moves down. If a court has a 5 player rotation these players will draw from a bag of 5 tennis balls to determine their move up and move down courts. The player serving at the end of the set draws first, then the next player in rotation and so on. Both players move up from a court having only 2 singles players.
IMPORTANT NOTE: An RSVP online will guarantee your spot to play on this evening. There have been several players showing up to play without an RSVP. Please be aware that this will create problems in having the proper amount of courts reserved to accommodate all players in attendance. Players that RSVP and have a history of being a no show, subject their self to be removed from the group.
IF our reserved courts are available before 7pm, you may warm up on any court. At 7pm the event host will signal by whistle, or other communication, for all courts to stop hitting and disperse to your level ability court. Then start playing your set. Note: Set time clock starts ticking at 7pm. Each 25 minute time set will expire on the whistle and the next will immediately start.
LATE arriving players will fill in where an empty player spot is available at the time of arrival. These players interrupting an ongoing set with other players, such as a 2 on 1 set or singles, will be an automatic move down for the next 25 minute set. If there are no vacant spots available on a reserved court, players that show up without RSVP's, to the event hosts, subject their self to sit out until another player leaves play for the evening.
