Round Robins and Leagues

Round Robins and in-house Leagues provide opportunities to play organized tennis all season long. Many of these events operate on a “drop-in” basis: just show up and play! Regular participation in the leagues require a commitment to play most weeks; however, players who cannot make that commitment can also play as spares.

If a description indicates a require playing level and tryout, you can verify your playing level with a Club Pro and you must attend tryouts at the beginning of each year.
