We will begin by having the June Open Challenge to determine in which division you belong. Players may challenge ANYONE on the ladder during the month of June. Report results within 24 hours of a match to keep the ladders up to date. A June Open Challenge cannot be made after June 23 in order to allow a full seven days for the challenge to be played before the regular season begins.Just to review the challenge procedures: Challenges may be made via email, text or phone. If no response is received in 24 hours, challenge again using an alternate means. If no response is received in the second 24 hour period, a forfeit will be given. Play the match within 7 days of the time it was accepted. If challenged, the person challenged must give the challenger at least 3 different reasonable days and times to play the match, including at least one evening or weekend time. Reasonable starting times are between 8am and 8pm. Otherwise, the challenged player must offer a forfeit. Similarly, the challenger must respond back to the challenged player within 24 hours to say which date and time is best to schedule the match. Otherwise, the challenged player may move on and make or accept another challenge. You can turn down a challenge only if you have already accepted a challenge from behind. If you have a challenge from behind in singles, you still need to accept a doubles challenge and vice versa.
All singles ladder matches will consist of a 10-game pro-set, with tie breaker to be played at 10 all. If both singles agree ahead of time, they can play an 8-game pro-set instead, with tie breaker to be played at 8 all. Doubles matches will consist of the best two out of three sets. A 12-point tie breaker will be played when necessary at 6-6 in a set.
The June Weekday Tournament is scheduled for June 16(Doubles) and June 17(Singles) from 8am to 12pm. We will follow the guidelines and social distancing regulations set forth by the state and park district. Sign up for the event beginning June 1.
Having June Tennis Clinic will be determined in the future based upon current circumstances. We will keep you advised as information becomes available.
We look forward to seeing you all on the courts and enjoying summer tennis.
