TENNIS LEAGUES – GENERAL INFORMATION:
Please be aware that all league participants are required to be fully vaccinated with both shots to participate in an organized league.
Leagues are scheduled tennis games with different partners and opponents each week - no scores are recorded (except the team leagues).
Players are committed for all the weeks, spares are substitutes for players who can't play in their spot that week.
See the schedule below showing available times and some important details about the leagues offered.
Sign up for the leagues you want to play or spare in by September 7th.
You must email: [email protected] with:
- your league choices,
- rating (if choosing a rated league),
- whether you are a player or a spare, and
- your phone number.
You will be put into the league if you sign up as a player.
Sessions will run October 1st to December 23rd (12 weeks starting on a Friday).
Please note that regular play continues on statutory holidays.
Please wait until you have seen confirmed leagues before paying fees.
You will receive an email directing you to the SSTA web site where all leagues will be posted and fees will be listed.
All league fees for court time are to be prepaid by October 1st.
1.5 hour sessions cost $10.50 per doubles player.
2.0 hour sessions cost $14.00 per doubles player.
Spares should arrange the payment of the court fee with the player they are replacing.
Once leagues are confirmed (by email), payments are to be paid by cheque or e-transfer.
Cheques should be dropped off in the League box at Ross Court. (Cheques to be made out to SSTA.)
E-transfer by emailing payment to: [email protected]
Please also note which league you are paying for.
Payments are due prior to October 1st.
You will need a mandatory rating to enter all rated leagues 3.0, 3.5, and 4.0.
If you want to enter a rated league but have no formal rating speak to Pete Schelling early and arrange a formal rating. Contact him at [email protected]
If you are a spare and would like to be part of the rated leagues then please let me know your rating when making the request.
The ratings assessment is a great way to find the areas of your game you can improve. We have excellent coaches to guide you toward your goals.
