Who can play in the league?
If you're over the age of 21, free Friday nights, want to play a little tennis, and are not a "weirdo" ( at least not in your mind), and have some form of transportation, then you can join this league!
Do I have to have previous tennis experience to play in the league?
Nope, no, absolutely not! That's the best part! Anyone can play! How many matches do we play each season?
The regular season runs for 4 to 6 weeks plus a player party at the end of each season awarding the coveted Fireball Trophy!
How many matches do we play each season?
The regular season runs for 4-6 weeks depending on how many teams register for the league.
How many players are on a team?
You need at least 6 players on your team (3 men and 3 women.) The maximum is endless! Invite your neighbors, your fun friends an anyone else you think might want to have fun on Friday nights!
What exactly is the format?
2, 8 game pro sets of doubles are played: guys vs guys, girls vs girls, then mixed.... tally your games for all 3 sets....winning team has most games..get it?
-A few specifics: At the start of each point, ALL players MUST remain on the baseline until the first return of serve is hit. After that you can run around like crazy people if you want. THIS MEANS NO POACHING ON THE FIRST RETURN
What if I’m a loner and don’t technically have a team, but I want to play so bad I'll do anything?!
We will definitely take you... but you'll be labeled as a stray cat or a lost puppy. When you register without a team, you will be thrown into the pound, but don't you worry - we will find someone to adopt you! * see above red tab: "Dont have a team"
What if I don’t own a racquet? Can I still play?
Of course you can! However, we might roll our eyes at you, short sheet your bed, and shout out to everyone that you signed up for a tennis league with no racquet while laughing hysterically. But, we will have some demo racquets, they may be wooden racquets from the 1970's, but you can use them for free!
Honey we've shrunk the court!!! This FUN SOCIAL FIREBALL TENNIS league is perfect for all levels!
WE WILL POST ON FACEBOOK IF MATCHES ARE CANCELLED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER
