We have a few 'bites' of information to share before you carve the turkey!
  • Beginning spring 2019, the maximum roster size for Ladies teams has changed from 14 to 16. Updated TCD Rules are available for download here.
  • We had 2168 Ladies League members (44% of the total) who responded to an October survey about two topics.  There was significant interest (60%) in having TCD explore ways to incorporate facility locations in the formation of flights to minimize away match travel, and we will be sharing plans for researching this issue in the next E-News.  Feedback also indicated we should continue to play a full third set in our Ladies League. (More than 50% want to play a full third set.) We appreciate all of the feedback and comments from so many Ladies League members - our players are clearly passionate about keeping the tennis experience in TCD fun and competitive.
Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you,
Jane Schrick, TCD Communications Director

A very special thanks to Sheri Colaluca, our fearless Social Director!
