2011 TENNIS EVENTS
Typical tournament format is 10 game pro-sets with no-ad scoring in the initial rounds and the finals are typically two out of three sets with a 12 point tie breaker to be played at 6-6. However, if the size of the draw is markedly larger or smaller than anticipated, the tennis committee will make the final decision about format. Format will be posted in the clubhouse on the Friday prior to the tournament start.Sign up sheets will be posted at the club one month before the scheduled tournament date. The cost for each player is $25.00, and $50.00 per team for doubles which will include light breakfast, lunch, and prizes for winners. Entrants should submit their e-mail address when signing up. Rain dates will be scheduled as necessary over the following week or weekend (if possible – see rain dates below).
