09/25/18 Activity

As you are all aware league season is revving up for the Fall and our courts can be quite busy in the mornings from 8:00-9:30am. Our courts, however, are readily open for play from 10:00am on. We would like to encourage you to consider rearranging some of your games to avoid the heavy primetime play and take advantage of the non primetime hours.  
 

  • Men's Singles
    Every Tuesday at 5:30pm we have a group of guys playing men's singles.  If you would like to be included, please send request to Eric Nelson at ericnelson1232@gmail.com and he will add you to the weekly Evites.  Note this is not a clinic—just people playing casual singles.   Attendees are typically 3.5-4.0.
     

  • 10/19 THROUGH 10/21 - Our 2nd Annual San Dieguito Cup!
    Be sure and sign up to play in the Second Annual San Dieguito Cup to be held from October 19th -21st.
     
    This is a team tennis tournament which takes place over a weekend.  Last year’s inaugural event was won by Team France, captained by Maria Avila. 
     

  • Each team consists of 4 men and 4 women. 

  • Team captains (3 men and 3 women) choose a country to represent and select their players in a draft.

  • Each round consists of a men’s doubles match, a women’s doubles match and a mixed doubles match, playing 8 game pro sets.

  • The tournament begins with a potluck team dinner on Friday, October 19th.  In keeping with their country, each team decorates its table, brings representative food/drink and dresses accordingly.   

  • After round robin play, the top 4 ranked teams advance to the Semi-Finals on Sunday, with prizes given for 1st through 3rd places.

  • A picture of the winning team is displayed in the club house for the next year and the names of the winning team members will be displayed on the perpetual trophy.

  •  The $35 entry fee includes lunch on Saturday and Sunday, snacks, beer, water and balls. 
     
    Sign-ups are limited to the first 24 men and 24 women who sign up; however, additional teams could be added if there are enough interested players to fill out more teams.      
     
    Volunteers and subs also are needed.

    SIGN UPS ARE NOW POSTED AT THE CLUB.
