*** NOTE FOR WINTER TENNIS*** If the temperature at the starting time is forecasted to be below 40 degrees, the meetup will be most likely be cancelled. On days when it is close please check the boards before heading toward the courts *** NOTE FOR SPRING TENNIS *** Now that the weather is starting to warm up, we are expecting to get more players coming out. If the meetup is full please don't hesitate to jump on the wait list. I will add a court for every 4 players that get on the wait list. Also please try to get to the courts to hold them as early as possible. If court availability becomes an issue then we will have to look into reserving the courts like we used to. If this becomes necessary then the cost would go up to account for the cost. Thank you. Duane --- WHO IS WELCOME: Men and Women 3.5 and Above (http://files.meetup.com/152783/NTRP%20Levels.pdf) RULES: Please arrive on time. Attendees do not need to bring a partner. Balls are provided. Event lasts 2 hours (3 sets). Please be prepared to stay for the duration of the event. Please bring water and wear proper tennis shoes. Warm-up is the first 10 minutes. Introductions follow. Event is round-robin. The event leader will explain rules and court assignments. RSVP POLICY: Excessive no-shows will result in being banned for a month or completely removed from the group. WAITING LIST: If a spot opens up, persons on the waiting list will automatically get RSVP'd to the event. As such, please no last minute drop-outs. And if you are on the waiting list and no longer have plans to attend, please change your RSVP to No. Thanks! COST: In the colder months, there is a huge financial risk to reserving courts. This is further exacerbated by the RSVP changes which has reduced the number of attendees. As such, from October 29 and through the winter, this event will only be scheduled when courts are not reserved by other groups . . . and we'll only be using a portion of Lions Park's 8 courts. We will not reserve courts and will pass this savings on to you. Please pay the event leader your $1 event fee.
