Join us for some 4.0+ Round Robin Doubles at Roosevelt Island Racquet Club. Don't have a partner? Not to worry. We'll pair you with someone in the group.
From 8:00pm - 9:15pm you'll play against one doubles team and then 9:15pm - 10:30pm with another opponent. MTG will provide tennis balls. Afterwards, we'll head to Riverwalk Bar & Grill (425 Main Street; www.riverwalkbarandgrill.com) for some food, drinks and a chance to meet the other players (grill open until 11:00pm/ bar open until 1:00am).
n an effort to offer level specific parties, we are following some finer guidelines (USTA/GLTA results, general playing level, etc.) to ensure level appropriate players are attending the proper parties. Please be advised that this is not to disparage any players level whatsoever but to allow for fun and competitive play for everyone. We appreciate your understanding of our efforts to collectively tailor our events to appropriate level players for the betterment of the group at large.
The Roosevelt Island Racquet Club is located at 281 Main Street, Roosevelt Island, NY 10044; (212) 935-0250.

No food or drink will be provided by MTG for this event. There is fresh/cold water on each court. Feel free to bring your own drinks but PLEASE be careful on the courts. Please clean up diligently after yourselves, both on and off the courts. We are fortunate to play in this tennis complex and we want to maintain a good working relationship with the RIRC so we can continue to have future parties of this caliber. To that end, please throw away the tennis cans and balls at the end of the evening and place all waste in the proper bins. Let’s help preserve the environment and the RIRC.
There are full locker room facilities available (including showers) with limited availability to lockers. If you want to use a locker, please remember to bring a lock. Please note that the lockers are primarily for members of the club so there will likely not be locker available on the day of our event. However, if a locker is not available and you need to store items, we will find a way to make the necessary accommodations at the venue.
There is a 48 hour cancellation policy for our events. Please note that we will be unable to provide any refunds with less than 48 hours prior to our events. If you are unable to attend but can find a replacement, please notify us immediately so that we can make the necessary arrangements.
Matt Sicoli, Membership Director, will be your host for the evening. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact him (718) 570-3244; email@example.com).
