Spring 2020 Singles

All,

  • The cost will be $230 for the season.
  • Each participant will be scheduled to play at least 9 matches.
  • We are maxed out at 46 participants.
    • We encourage participants to sign up early. The last few sessions have filled up completely and, based on great turnouts at T4A events recently, we’re anticipating another sold-out season.  If we end up with a lot of people on a waiting list, we will try our best to accommodate everyone (possibly add more times, courts, etc.)
  • Registration will open on Monday, November 18 and will remain open until the earlier of (a) member capacity is reached or (b) Wednesday, November 27.
  • We will be sending a reminder email to our membership each day registration is open. In advance, we ask for your patience and understanding regarding multiple emails; these reminders are vital to both reaching our capacity and keeping the league successful and competitive.
