Drop-In Activities

Drop-In Activities

Mixed Up Men’s Night

All levels of men tennis players are invited to come out and play multiple doubles matches with different partners.  No sign-up is necessary.  This is a fun, casual atmosphere for our tennis members to play different levels, meet new people and network. 

When you show up, your tennis director, T, sends you out onto the courts to join in an entry game of “Bump”. This is a fast moving game that has you partnered with different people trying to work your way up/down the courts. At the 30-40 minute mark, players will have had ample time to arrive and acclimate. The game of “Bump” naturally puts people of similar levels on the same court, making it fair and clear whose partners are moving forward. Once the levels are clear, you’ll play quick sets with a partner that T assigns to you. Throughout the rest of the night, the winning doubles team moves up a court, then switch partners, or moves down, and switch partners. If there are men waiting to get on a court, they can snack on some popcorn, play various board games, OR PLAY POKER WITH T!

Tuesday Morning Women’s Doubles

The Tuesday Morning Ladies League is a very competitive option for those looking to dominate the field.  This is a regular format doubles league where for up to 7 weeks, you will partner with a different person playing a doubles match.  The more games you score the better.  By the end of the session, you will have played with multiple partners.  The top 2 players in the division will move up a division, 4 will stay in the same division, and 2 will move down a division.  Moving up and down divisions increases the pressure to play well.  Are you up to the challenge?

Wedneday Ladies Team Tennis

Team Tennis is a great format to use when you want to find the right balance between fun and competition.  All players signing up will be placed on a team according to the tennis director.  Having the tennis director pick the teams allows for the fairest distribution of players.  Each team will have up to 4 doubles teams playing.  All doubles teams are put together using their rating, along with the tennis director’s knowledge of them to keep matches fair.  Teams Tennis maintains variety by allowing for players to rotate partners within their team.   Every match day will then have a new partner with a new opponent.  In this team format, combined with the rotating, we are able to strike the right balance of competition and fun.
