A reminder -- this season is a restart of Session 2 from mid-March. Court fees were reduced by the clubs (summer is their "low season"), but, like in March, all matches have court fees,
including outdoor matches...
- 18+ and "Fun": $9
- 40+: $8.00
- 55+: $7.50
...all include tax. (A reminder that Top Seed accepts credit cards only.)
As was true in March, we ask captains to reschedule matches
at the original venue (see below for a possible exception), notifying the clubs at least 24 hours in advance. Any "missed" matches may result in clubs assessing court fees against captains.
A possible exception is
Top Seed due to weather -- since their indoor courts are not currently available, please follow these steps in case of rain:
- Captains should call Top Seed an hour or two before your match. Weather forecasts are often wrong, and showers are often isolated. In addition, Top Seed has staff that can sometimes dry courts out in time, if rain stops.
- If you ARE rained out, you may call the other two clubs for court availability at the original time. (Again, don't do this based on forecasts.)
- If no courts are available at the original time, contact Top Seed and reschedule with them.
Be fair to all the clubs -- they support USTA, TACK, and tennis in general, and we support them!
League Registration Refunds
If you are currently registered for Session 2, but aren't going to play, you now have 3 options:
- Ask to apply your registration to a future league (2020 only -- mixed, Fall, Combo are all coming).
- Ask for a credit -- USTA is willing to give full credit towards future registrations through 2021, delivered through TennisLink.
- Ask for a refund. You will lose the $3 TennisLink registration processing fee, but we'll send a check to you.
Determining the Winner for New 40+ Match Format
40+ matches are now 1 singles, 3 doubles. That means some matches may end in a 2-2 tie. If this happens, the following formula is used:
- Fewest sets lost. If that still results in a tie...
- Fewest games lost. If that still results in a tie...
- Game winning percentage (total games won divided by total games played).
This is the same formula used at State Championships and beyond.
