The goal of the
rotation in the doubles sessions, primarily on Saturday and Sunday
mornings, is to balance play based on the overall skill level of the
participants. The method of
rotation is the winning team splits and moves one court towards the first
court on the upper level (towards Route 28).
The winning team starting on Court 1 splits and remains on the
court. The losing team splits
and moves one court in the opposite direction, towards the fenced paddle
court at the end of the upper seven courts.
The losing team on the last court in use splits and stays on that
coordinators will help with rotations particularly when people are leaving
after the completion of a rotation and when there are players on the lower
five courts. But the general
principle is that the winning team splits and moves toward Route 28 and
the losing team splits and moves in the opposite direction. Please understand that the
volunteer coordinators are trying to create reasonably balanced groups of
four players on each court for the benefit of all participants. Please cooperate with the
The rotation during the weekdays is a little less precise because there are generally fewer participants and a volunteer coordinator is not always present. The goal is still to rotate after each half hour to balance play and allow participants to play a variety of opponents.
Competitive Doubles on Tuesday and Thursday Evenings
In addition to our standard play on the upper seven
courts, we will have "Competitive Women's Doubles" during
Tuesday evenings and "Competitive Men's Doubles" during Thursday
evenings. Lori Buseck will organize the women's matches and Norma
Zhao the men's. These competitions are for those players
who are interested in more "serious" play. Court
assignments and matches will be made by Lori and Norman. Matches will begin promptly at 6:00 PM. We will provide sign-up
information so please watch for the email.
