Current players have first choice to rejoin their league and must be signed up for next season by Friday, April 27. After this date, openings will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis by qualified players. If you do not come in first or second in your current group and you wish to move up, you may try out for the group. If the pro ranks you at that level and there are openings, you can move to the next level. So get your application in as soon as possible. All new players must attend a tryout (to be rated) with one of our pros before they can play in the league. You do not have to try out for the learn and play league. If you do not get into the league of your choice, you may sign up as a sub player. They will do their best to accommodate players; however, there is limited court time and a limited number of openings in the women’s tennis leagues.
