    PARTNERS: If you have a doubles partner with whom you wish to play, please make sure that you make note of it when you sign up so that you can play together. If you DO NOT have a partner, we will partner you with someone of your playing level, so please make sure that you have your level listed, particularly if you have not been rated at a recent MTG event.

    Please be aware that while we are happy to pair you with a requested doubles partner, we will not be able to pair you with specific groups. This is a ROUND ROBIN Doubles event.

    Women are encouraged to attend! 

    If you have any questions, please contact the coordinator:

    Jose Torres | 917-216-0956 | iamjetl@gmail.com

    Payment is expected when signing up to confirm your spot.  If for any reason you cannot pay at the time of registration, please contact the coordinator.  Once all spaces are reserved, interested players will be put on a wait list and every effort will be made to allow as many players to participate as possible. 

    Please note: there is a 72-hour cancellation policy. No refunds will be given after Wednesday, October 24 2018.

     

    **Payment must be tendered at the time of event registration.  Any registration received for this event without a concurrent payment will be placed on the wait list by the coordinator of the event until such time as payment is received.  Any request for special accommodations regarding payment must be directed to the attention of the event coordinator, and any decision regarding accommodations are at the sole discretion of the event coordinator**

    **No “Walk Ins” permitted.  (You must be registered and paid in order to play this event).  No exceptions.

     

    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.

    Registration is open for all levels for the 2018-19 Winter Doubles season. Matches will be held Sunday evenings, starting Nov. 4 at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The fee is $175 for seven matches through March 24.  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 wdl@metrotennisgroup.com
