How does a TennisDC Season / League run?


      The league advertises the season dates and builds a queue of committed players for the season.


Kickoff Day

      The start day of the season, players are sent a kickoff email that contains important information about the league, the link where your league standings and players contact information. We guarantee 6 playing partners at your playing level, but have been averaging closer to 15+ partners in most cities. The number of different levels we run is solely based upon the number of players enrolled for the league kickoff. Typically we are running a Skilled-3.0, Competitive-3.5 and Advanced-4.0 in most cities.


Your Task - "Flexible Scheduling"

So happy that the TennisDC partner program found me a partner, and on about 10 hours' notice, too. :)

      After this kickoff email is sent, it is the player's task to communicate with other players. Players should work with their partners to find an agreeable time and location to play the match. While TennisDC doesn't mandate your playing schedule, it is recommended that players schedule at least one match per week. By request of the players, we started to allow players to play 1 rematch per season. The regular season is all about playing as much as you can. As of Aug. 25th, 2014 we've had 293 players play more than 20 matches in a season.


Where to Play?

       Play at your local free tennis courts, tennis parks, condo courts or tennis clubs. The league strongly suggests that players jointly try to pick a tennis court location convenient to both. We provide an extensive list of tennis courts, including # of courts, lighting, hitting walls, etc. We strive to keep this list up-to-date.

       TennisDC sets up a must play dates to push players out on the courts. The final deadline is the date marking the end of the season, at which point players with 3-5 wins (Actually total is specified on the division page) will qualify for a post-season playoff to determine the league champion.

TennisDC has been very helpful for meeting players in a new city. My tennis partners have all been very congenial and wonderful opponents.
