Doubles Rotations

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 volunteer coordinators.  

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 different courts.  

Competitive Doubles on Tuesday and Thursday Evenings

In addition to our standard play on the upper seven courts we will also have “Competitive Women’s Doubles” on Tuesday evenings and “Competitive Men’s Doubles” on Thursday evenings.  Lori Buseck will organize the women’s matches and Norman Zhao will organize the men’s matches.  The “Competitive Doubles” is for those players who are interested in more serious play.  Court assignments and matches will be set by Lori and Norman.  Matches will begin promptly at 6:00 PM.  We will provide sign-up information so please watch for the email.  Lori can be reached at Bus83@boltoneng.com and Norman can be reached at Tennisnorman@gmail.com.
