2016 Spring Doubles Tournament
Unfortunately we only got in approximately a third of the matches before a rain out two weekends in a row. Look for sign-up for the 4th of July tournament in mid-May.
These are the teams registered for the Spring Doubles Tournament. We have 9 men’s teams and (likely) 6 mixed doubles teams.
As slated for the draw, we will have 3 Groups of 3 for men’s and 2 Groups of 3 for mixed. Top TWO teams from each bracket advance to single elimination in afternoon.
Men’s play begins at 9:00 AM Saturday.
Mixed play commences at 11:00 AM.
Final Draw sheets will be on site in morning. Please arrive 15 minutes early for check in and warm up.
Although the new Shack at Vandy Christie looks great, it is still undergoing construction, so we will not be allowed inside. (We will set up on the grass and have been informed that port-a-potties are to the south by the Varsity courts.)
Weather looks “OK” — chilly but dry — if ?????’s on latest, check our facebook page — BUT — basis is, we are all Rugged Tennis Players and looking for a nice day outdoors! 😉
