Saturday and Sunday, August 12 and 13 -- The Ninth Annual Mixed Doubles Tournament.  Enter as a team.  Watch for an email announcement with information to register.

Doubles Rotations

Primarily on Saturdays and Sundays, the goal of the rotation in the doubles sessions is to balance play based on the overall skill of the participants. 

During the rotations, the winning team on court one (the one nearest Route 28) splits and stays.  Every other winning team splits and moves one court away from court one.  The losing team on each court splits and moves one court toward court one.  The losing team on court one goes to the court closest to the gate, court seven, furthest from court one. The losing team on court seven splits and stays.

The volunteer coordinators will help with rotations, especially when there are players on the lower five courts.  The movement principle will still apply.  The overall objective is to create reasonably balanced groups of four players on each court.  Please cooperate with the volunteers.

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.  Carol Goodman 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.  They will be played on the lower five courts.
