Subject: 2001 Singles Round-Robin Leagues

We are continuing our round-robin singles leagues for an encore season. Competitors of equal NTRP Rating will be split into pools of 4 to 6 players. Each pool will play a complete round robin. The top one or two finishers from each pool will playoff against the other pools to determine an overall champion. The league will commence May 29 and run for about seven weeks.

The following rules will apply:

  1. The deadline for entries is 12:00 PM, Friday, May 25. To enter, return the attached entry form or E-Mail the League Director prior to the deadline.
  2. The objective of the league is to foster competitive play between equally matched opponents. Multiple levels may be configured, depending on the number and playing level of entrants. The Open level requires an NTRP rating of 4.0 or higher.
  3. Matches will be 2 out of 3 sets with a 12-point tiebreaker.
  4. Each player must bring one can of unopened, regulation tennis balls to each match. The winner will keep the unopened can.
  5. A schedule will be distributed to participants. Players will need to complete one match about every ten days. Players who cannot keep pace with the league schedule may be forfeited at the discretion of the League Director.
  6. Both players are responsible for scheduling individual matches. In order to keep the league moving, each player must show some initiative in scheduling and completing their matches.
  7. Pool standings will be determined by (in order): Match record, set won/lost percentage, game won/lost percentage, punctuality, coin toss.
