Saturdays 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM July and August – Junior “Drills and Match Play” program run by our own ATC member Amit Lele. Amit has volunteered to organize and run this program at no expense. The time will be equally divided between drills and match play. Participants must be part of an ATC Family Membership. Registration will be required. More details and sign-up instructions to follow.
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 court.
The volunteer 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 rotations during the weekdays
are a little less precise because there are generally fewer participants
and a volunteer coordinator is not always present. The goal is to rotate after each
half hour to balance the play and allow participants to move to
