GENERAL TOURNAMENT INFORMATION

  • DEADLINES: Sign up by Sunday, August 9th for all tournaments except Senior Women’s events.  That deadline is July 13th. Minimum number of entrants per draw is 4.  Maximum is 32.

  • SIGN UP:  Sign up for all events in Club Automation under Group Activities or by clicking here. Make sure to go all the way through to checkout and get confirmation to ensure you are signed up. If playing any of the member doubles events, both players must sign up separately in Club Automation and then email Liz Herbert to confirm pairing (sorry – system limitation…). Reach out to Liz Herbert (liz.herbert@gmail.com) for any questions.

  • TIME:  Weekend tournaments are planned from approximately 8:00 am to 5:00 pm both days, and Friday evening will be used in the case of large draws or predicted inclement weather. Rain dates will be scheduled as necessary by the Club Staff and Tournament Committee.

  • COST: Entry fee is $30 for singles and $60 for doubles ($30 per player) and will include a minimum of two matches per draw, a can of tennis balls for each tournament match, food and drink, and prizes for winners. All entrants will be charged the full entry fee once the draw is made (after the sign-up cutoff).

  • FORMAT: Tournaments will generally be single elimination with a consolation draw for first-round losers. However, adjustments may be made at the discretion of Club Pro Staff. A member of Club Pro Staff or Tennis Committee will be onsite during weekend tournament play and will determine the best format for each round (such as pro-set, ad or no ad, and possible tiebreaker in lieu of a third set). Specific format will be based on number of entrants and court availability. A Club Pro or Tennis Committee Member will be available to assist in the event of any concerns or issues related to play (rules, etc.). Every effort will be made to have courts available for non-tournament playing members throughout the weekends. However, we encourage you to watch if not playing.

  • RAIN DATES: In the event of inclement weather, the club pro staff will determine the best plan for rescheduling.

  • NOTE: Every effort will be made to have courts available for non-tournament playing members throughout the weekends.  However, we encourage you to participate or at least come by and watch and join the festivities!

  • BOOKING TOURNAMENT MATCHES: Court bookings may be made seven days in advance by calling the club.  The club can accommodate a maximum of two Prime Time Tournament courts total per evening.  Please note that booking a tournament match in Prime Time counts toward one’s weekly Prime Time limit.

Note: The club was founded in 1954 and presumably has held some tournaments every year since. We know that there were years in which only a few tournaments took place. In 2005 the club held only one tournament. A complete record of club tournaments is nowhere to be found. We have been able to piece together an incomplete record and we are posting it here on the website to acknowledge tournament winners. We need help in filling in the record. If you can fill in any of the blanks, please contact Joe at the club or by email.
