The 2018-19 Winter Doubles season has begun! Matches are held Sunday evenings, 6-10pm at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The fee is $175 for seven matches through March 17. As in USTA, each match is 2-of-3 sets, with a SuperTiebreak in lieu of third set, with a 2-hour time limit (including warm-up).
Coordinators will pair up people who request partners.
To register, you will go to the GLTA tournament page at the link below, and follow the directions. You will need to sign in using your GLTA login ID and password, not your MTG login ID. If you do not have a GLTA login ID, you can create one.
You may request up to 3 "unavailable" dates. Each pair will also be granted one reschedule of a match after the season's schedule has been posted.
We have more courts each week than last year and have fewer nights of play, so the season should move a little more quickly than before.
Note: WDL is open only to current members of MTG. We will be checking registrants to confirm that memberships are up-to-date. If you plan to play, please renew your membership, if you haven't already done so. (MTG memberships run September 1 - August 31.)
If you have questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

THIS IS A SOCIAL DOUBLES EVENT. We will do our best to pair you with players of same or comparable levels, but we cannot guarantee it. Please remember that this is primarily a social doubles event and therefore the focus is on camaraderie, making new tennis friends and mutual fun and support. This is not USTA League setting. Have fun, be considerate of one another and meet your fellow MTG community!
We're thankful for volunteers! Interested in assisting with MTG's monthly doubles parties at the National Tennis Center? Each month, we will choose one player to assist the coordinator before the party begins and during the social hour. You'll be lending a much-needed hand and getting a glimpse into how the Board works to put on fun and successful events for MTG members. Plus, as a thank you, you'll get to play the doubles party for free! Please contact the coordinator for details.
Please make sure you are on time so that we can start on time.
Join us for some Drill & Play Tennis on Har-Tru courts at the conveniently located Roosevelt Island Racquet Club(RIRC). The rotating format gives players the opportunity to meet and play with various other players. Plus, there will be a court with a pro to lead the group through drills to help enhance your game. Drills will be structured with dead ball feeds working on movement and strokes.
Please meet in the lobby. Arrive a few minutes early so that the court assignments can be distributed and orientation to the facility can be provided to all attendees. The sooner we go through the formalities, the sooner we get on the courts!
FOOD / BEVERAGE:
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 and clean up after yourselves.
For those interested we will head over to Riverwalk Bar and Grill for a quick drink and eats!
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.
