West Rouge Tennis Club
Adult Doubles House League is for Novice to Expert players and you could end up playing with any combination of abilities. This is
good for developing less experienced players, so Expert players please be cognisant of the abilities of those you are playing with
Our Adult Doubles House Leagues are organized in two separate sessions, Spring and Summer. The Spring session begins in
early May to mid-July. The Summer session runs from mid-July to mid-September. Play is for one hour each, from 7 pm to 10 pm,
on two week nights.
Your Executive Committee wishes to draw your attention to three rules that will enhance the House League experience.
WEDNESDAY EVENING: (Games are on May 8, May 22, June 5, June 19, July 3)
Will have assigned time slots, and specific courts will be assigned upon arrival taking into consideration the level of play. If you
must play at a specific time for all weeks, please identify this on your membership form or e-mail Michele at
firstname.lastname@example.org if she is not aware of this requirement.
TUESDAY EVENING: (Games are on April 30, May 14, May 28, June 11, June 25)
Will be a Progressive Ladder format with people moving up, down, or staying the same based on each weeks performance. As
such, your time slots may vary from week to week with the lower level courts being in the early time slots, and higher level being
Please note: Some accommodation can be made for those people wanting a specific time slot Tuesday evening but,
these would need to be dealt with on an individual basis. Please identify this to Michele at
REMEMBER you can sign up for Tuesday evenings ($10) or Wednesday evenings ($10) or both ($20).
Unchanged from the format discussed at the Wine and Cheese, i.e. Progressive Ladder format for Ladies and Men.
For those of you with juniors, there are a lot of free opportunities for them to take lessons and play so sign them up
As always, we aim to please and make it fun for everyone on the courts.
One. Any player scheduled to play and who arrives after the official start time may only request that the replacement player
(assigned to play by the House League convener) relinquish the position. The decision to agree to relinquish the position rests
solely with the replacement player.
Two. If a house league player cannot attend a match, that person is responsible for arranging a substitute player in a timely
manner. We will provide a list of available substitutes or you may ask a regular player who is on the court before or after you to
take your place. It is not fair to the other players if you fail to arrange for a substitute player.
Three. Any player who misses three games without having found a substitute player will be moved to the Spares list. House
League fees will not be reimbursed.
To minimise disruptions to play, please arrive at the courts at least 5 minutes prior to your hour of play.
