WINTER DOUBLES - RULES

NEW FOR 2019/2020

  • Season begins Nov. 15 and runs through Feb. 28 on Friday nights from 9-11pm.

  • Lakeshore Sports & Fitness will be our host again this year.

  • New format: TEAM TENNIS! Teams of 2, 3, or 4 can be formed to play throughout the season

  • Cost will be $400 per team, regardless of the size of the team. 

  • During a match, teammates can make substitutions as many times as they would like, but ONLY during changeovers. That would allow all teammates to play if everyone shows up!

  • 4 different divisions (Open, A, B, C) with 8 teams in each division. We will try to honor division requests but may have to force rank the teams based on past SCT and GLTA results, in order to balance out the divisions. 

  • Match format will be best out of 3 sets, with a 10 point super tiebreaker as the 3rd set. 

  • There will be 7 round robin matches for each team over the 14 week regular season. 

  • All teams will qualify for playoffs, which will be in March. Dates TBD as we are still working that out with LSF.

  • Even with the new Team Tennis format, we will still allow substitute players to sign up for the season, but there will be no charge this year given the new format. 

  • Any free agents looking for a team? Please email us at winterdoubles@secondcitytennis.com and we will help find you a team!

  • LSF will host late night happy hour from 11-12:30 each Friday night so stick around and socialize!
