Social Distanced Adult Round Robin Tennis

IMG_4341

Socially distanced Adult Round Robin will replace the Friday night and Sunday morning drills. Due to COVID-19, we will not be able to offer Friday night and Sunday morning drills in the format that has existed for so many years. We have altered these programs to provide mini match play options for adults in a fun and semi competitive setting. Players of all levels are welcome.

Singles and/or Doubles mini matches may be played depending on the number of people in each session. Mini matches will be first to 3 games with scoring handicaps offered to lower level players in the event that they are matched up against higher level players.

The cost is $15/$20 resident/non-resident. Fridays from 6:30-8:00 pm and Sunday from 9:30 – 11:00 am. Each player will be provided a can of balls. This program is ongoing.
