Currently we have group A and group O.
Group A is for advanced players with estimated USTA ratings of 3.5 or above.
Group O is an open group for all players from beginners to advanced players wanting to play some practice matches (Please let the league know if you have an estimated USTA rating, we will display it next to your name). Group O is also for USTA 3.5+ players waiting for an open slot in group A. When scheduling matches please let other players know your skill level. Only match scores are displayed in group O...no ranking pointed are caculated.
● The winner of
the match please submit match score within 2 days
in this example format:
B7-Dan Dunlop def. B3-Wade Wilson 7-6, 2-6, 7-5 (Please report entire match score in the SUBJECT line of the email. Failure to do so or in improper format will result in score not being posted) When reporting scores please make sure to include the beginning quarter group ranking of each player as shown above, and do not include any previous or irrelevant contents in the subject and the body of the email (e.g. reporting using reply or forwarded emails).
● Tiebreakers: When reporting tiebreakers just report it as 7-6 or 6-7, don't report the points won in a tiebreaker. If it's a 10-point match tiebreaker in lieu of 3rd set then report it as 7-6* (with an asterisk).
● Each player plays a best out of 3 sets match with all other players in same group within a quarter period to earn ranking points (a 10-point match tiebreaker in lieu of a full 3rd set is to be played if requested by "either" player). Players schedule match times and locations among themselves via email or phone. A good way to schedule a match is by emailing other players in your group your availability for matches 1 or 2 weeks ahead of time. Trying to schedule matches more than 2 weeks ahead of time may be difficult for many players in this league for various reasons.
● If your court time is limited to 1.5 hours or less, then to help finish a match within this time, you or your opponent have the option to call for the use of "no-ad" scoring method (see below) starting from the 2nd set...the other player must oblige. This along with the "10-point match tiebreaker in lieu of a full 3rd set" rule above should allow most matches to be finished within 1.5 hours.
|A "no-ad" (No-advantage ) scoring is a scoring method in which the first player to reach four points wins the game. No-ad scoring eliminates the requirement that a player must win by two points. Therefore, if the game is tied at deuce, the next player to win a point wins the game (for this point only, the receiver gets to choose whether to receive the serve on right or left side).|
● 2 ranking points are awarded to the winner of a match, loser gets 1 point.
● 0 point if you default, your opponent gets 2 points
● If 2 or more players have the same ranking points at the end of the quarter, then total Sets is used to determine ranking: Win a set = 1, Lose a set = -1
● If 2 or more players have the same ranking points and total sets won at the end of the quarter, then head-to-head results will be used to determine rankings for the following quarter.
● Cell phones: Please silence your cell phone during a match. If your cell phone rings during a point that you won, your opponent has the option to replay the point. But if your cell phone rings during a point that you lost, the point shall stand.
● Tennis balls: If the sum of the 2 players' beginning quarter ranking is odd, then the lower ranked player provides a new can of tennis balls for match play, and vice versa. Examples: (A3 vs. A5 = A3 provides balls), (A4 vs. A5 = A5 provides balls), (A4 vs. A6 = A4 provides balls) etc... The balls must be brand new, unopened & USTA approved unless otherwise agreed upon by both players. It's good idea to remind each other prior to the match on who is responsible to provide the new balls. If the responsible player forgets to provide the new balls and the opponent provides them instead, then the responsible player should make arrangement to reimburse the opponent for the new balls at the opponent's convenience. You should always have a new can of balls in your gear bag regardless who is responsible. A member that has been reported multiple times for failing to provide new balls or reimbursement is subject to have his/her membership forfeited or not renewed.
● New membership inquiry: Please email AgapeTennis.Martin@gmail.com to inquire about slot availabilities.
