Info on our DECEMBER Wednesday Twilight League
DECEMBER Match dates: 12/6, 12/13, 12/20, 12/27!
We play best of 3 games each match. Games are scored to 15! (not 11)
You and your partner play at the same timeslot each week. Time slots: either 3-4pm, & 4-5pm
Both partners need to submit our registration form and Venmo 45.00 each
Info on our HOLIDAY NOV/DEC Flexible-Schedule League
Each player will submit a registration form and payment. It is $25.00 per player for both months so that you may get all your matches in during Nov and Dec without worrying about the holidays.
You may play in more than one division with a different partner in a given month - in that case, you must register for both divisions, and pay an additional $25.00 per person per division.
If you do NOT have a partner, but would like us to match you with one, please send in registration form and Venmo $25.00. We will work with you to find you a partner of the same level. We match many partners each month!
On the 1st of each month that you are registered, you will receive a roster with the names, phone numbers and emails of the players in your assigned division. Players are assigned to divisions based on playing level, not gender.
The flexible schedule allows you to schedule your matches with everyone in your division at a time that works best for all opponents. All matches are to be completed within 5 weeks from the 1st of the month. We recommend using a scheduling platform (like Calendry, which is free). Another suggestion is for one of the partners to reach out to the opponents (after you and your partner have created a GOOGLE SHEET with your availability) and ask them to choose from a date that works for them also.
How To Play
Each game is played to 11 points, and you must win by 2 points.
Please switch sides after each game.
Best of 5 games wins the match.
Winner's Prize for Flex League
For the divisions that complete all their matches, the winning partners with the most points are the winners of that division.
We have weekly round robins for different levels. We hope the winners can join us the following month at one of our round robins! FYI - there is not a specific winners round robin but we want you to be able to come to our weekly round robin and play with everyone! Please let us know if you do NOT receive our EVITES to these round robins so we may add you to the EVITES. We want to make sure you can RSVP for a round robin that best suits your schedule, so we may celebrate you!
PLEASE MAKE NOTE ON THE EVITE THAT YOU WILL BE USING YOUR WINNERS COMPLIMENTARY GIFT! ($15.00 Value)
Report your match scores to: email@example.com
Clinics & Round Robins
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be included in our evites for weekly Round Robins or Skills Clinics. Please tell us your level of play in your email, because each e-vite is specific to different players' levels.
