2015 Early Start Ratings are Out!

The USTA New England Early Start Ratings for 2015 are now published.

You can check your rating to make sure you’re eligible for leagues starting this fall here:

These ratings will be used when you sign up for USTA leagues this fall.  At the end of November, the USTA will publish Year-End ratings, which may be different from the Early Start ratings. These Year-End ratings can affect your eligibility for teams as well, so it’s important to be aware of both ratings.

To learn more about Early Start ratings and the appeals process, see the USTA New England website.

Club Tournament This Fall!

Our annual club tournament is coming up! We’ve made a change to the format to allow for flexible scheduling of the preliminary rounds (like Mixed Madness). This tournament is open to members only.

The tournament finals, a round robin, and party will be on Sunday, October 5 at 12 noon.

From September 7 – October 4, you can schedule your own matches with your opponents. We’ll post the draw at the club and on the website.

Here are a few guidelines:

  • Please pay the tournament fee at the front desk prior to playing your first match. It’s $10/singles player and $15/doubles team.
  • No other court fees apply.
  • Reserve the court for two hours.
  • Both players/teams bring a new can of balls to the match. Winner takes new can.
  • Play a 10-point tiebreaker in lieu of a third set if you split sets.
  • Report scores to the front desk.
  • Phone numbers and email addresses are available at the front desk. Winners of each round should contact their opponents to schedule their next match by the deadlines. (Deadlines will be specified on the draws.)

Sign up at the front desk or call 860-739-6281 by September 6!
