Our High School Team Tennis League is for advanced beginners through intermediate players who would like more match play experience. Players should be comfortable with court positioning, serving, scoring in both singles/doubles, and also able to maintain consistent rallies.
Create a team or be placed on a team! Teams will consist of at least four players (minimum two boys and two girls) currently in grades 9 - 12 from any local high school.
1 Boys Singles, 1 Boys Doubles
1 Girls Singles, 1 Girls Doubles, 1 Mixed Doubles
Instead of playing multiple sets, the match format will be an eight (8) game "pro set." A pro set is first to 8 games by a margin of two games. If necessary, a 10 point tie-break will be played when the score is 8-8.
An individual player may play no more than two individual matches in one team match. Each team's captain, who can be a high school student, must be present at every match to represent the team. A YMCA scorekeeper will be present at all matches and tennis balls will be provided.
Players will meet for a 15 minute warm-up prior to the match's start time. Team captains will provide their lineup to the YMCA scorekeeper at the beginning of the warm-up session.
A match schedule will be emailed to participants one week after registration closes (registration deadline: June 4, 2018). Matches will take place in Cumberland or LaVale on weekday (Monday - Thursday) afternoons.
