WINTER SOCIAL TENNIS (WST)

If you are looking to hit the ball, improve your technique, or meet new people with a similar interest (tennis of course), then WST is for you!

From October to May, we move our recreational tennis event indoors. Unlike Summer Social Tennis (SST), space is limited. A weekly e-mail will be sent with a registration link. The court fee is $22 for 2 hours. The format is doubles and you switch partners every 30 minutes. The advantage of our WST is that you do not need to belong to a private club and pay their membership dues or pay guest fees.

Read the COVID safety protocols.

Format

After the pairings are set for each court at the specified start time, everyone plays a half hour match. The winning pair moves up a court and splits up. The losing pair goes down a court and splits up. You play with a different partner each half hour session. For the end courts, if you are on court 1 and win, you stay where you are. If you are on court 8 (or the lowest court) and lose, you stay where you are.

If time is called and the score is tied, play one more point to determine who moves up and down.

You switch partners every half hour session. If you are preparing for a tournament, we can give you the first session with your partner. Then that's it. It's social tennis. If you need more tournament practice, you can organize your own matches outside of social.

For example:
At 7:30pm on Court 2 are Sunil and Nancy vs. Perry and Russ.
At 8:00pm, if Sunil and Nancy win, they go up to Court 1 and play with different partners. Perry and Russ go down to court 3 and play with different partners.

Safety protocols

While you are waiting for a court, please keep physical distancing (6 feet apart) with everyone who is not in your household or bubble. That means no hugging, kissing, handshakes, high fives, fist bumps, etc. Racquet taps and thumbs ups are fine or anything else you come up with that doesn’t require physical contact. This does take some of the “social” out of social tennis, but we are living in unique times and need to be good citizens and considerate of the health of others. Read details about the city guidelines about COVID that you'll need to follow.
