Provides an opportunity for those of you who enjoy a little bit of doubles competition in a more organized way.

Sign-up

  • You need to attend a rating session before you can participate in the club’s programs – including House League.
  • $10 / session (4 weeks of play)
  • 16 players maximum per session for each category, for a total of 32 players per session.
  • We’ll keep a waitlist.
  • Registration is open 7 days before the start of the session, it will be first come first served.

 

When

  • Sundays from 4:30pm to 7:30pm. 4 courts (courts 4, 5, 6 and 7).
  • From end of May to end of October

 

Format

  • 4 weeks per session, with one rain-out week (long weekend will be skipped)
  • 2 levels of play: between 3.5 and 4.0 (4:30pm to 6pm) and between 2.5 and 3.0 (6pm to 7:30pm)
  • Each level gets to play for 1.5 hours total (30 minutes x 3 rounds)
  • 1 deuce then sudden death.

 

How to Play

  • The first pairings are pre-arranged for each court at the specified start time.
  • Everyone plays a half hour match. The court manager will keep track of time and notify court 6-7 when play is done.

The winning pair moves “up” a court and splits up from each other.
The losing pair goes “down” a court and splits up from each other.
You never play with the same partner consecutively.
If you are on court 4 (the highest court) and win, you stay where you are.
If you are on court 7 (the lowest court) and lose, you stay where you are.
If time is called and the score is tied, play one more point to determine who moves up and down.

Example
At 4:30pm on Court 5 are Medvedev and Osaka vs. Zverev and Thiem.
At 5:00pm, if Medvedev and Osaka win, they go up to Court 4 and play with different partners. Zverev and Thiem go down to court 6 and play with different partners.
