Box Singles League

For members who are looking for a bit more competition, we suggest they try our box league. Here’s how it works:
– 3 players per box
– one month time limit to play the other 2 people in your box
– each match is best of 3 sets or 1 Pro-Set if both players agree
– monthly results determine which player goes up and which player goes down
– the goal is to get into a box with similarly skilled players
– scoring is based on total matches, sets, and games won.
– players are responsible for organizing their own matches and recording results

Box league starts May 1st and will run though to end-September! Please sign-up for May league by April 28th as it is hard to squeeze in players later. If you missed the May league and wish to play in June you can do so.

Players will be added to boxes on a first come, first serve basis. The initial box alignment will be on a seeded basis based on 2018 league results.

Remember, it’s not about being in box #1 all summer, it’s more about playing in a box with players with the same skill level as yourself! That way it remains both fun and competitive.

Participants must be Club members (see Joining the Club). A simple web based system to log-in your score sheet has been set-up for participants. If you wish to play, contact Justin Fletcher at Justin.fletcher2@hotmail.com with the following information: Main contact telephone number, e-mail, full name, and skill level (if new to RTC).

Doubles Competition

Similar to the past 5 years, a doubles league will run on Thursday & Friday evenings 6pm -10pm starting April 26th with 8 weeks of round robin play and two weeks of playoffs. There will be separate mixed doubles and men’s doubles leagues. All 3 courts will be in use by the league. This is a popular event and will fill-up fast. Sign-up will be during the first two weeks of April with notice given via e-mail to RTC members. Contact Bill Ford (403-247-0557) with your inquires.

Singles Tournaments

Once again, a fun Spring singles tournament is scheduled for Saturday, May 25th. Plan is for both men and women’s competitions and a consolation round. Watch this space and e-mail news for sign-up details.

Club Singles Competition will be held August 22 – 25. There will be both men’s and women’s draws with a single knock-out  format. Draw will be seeded and matches will be scheduled from Thursday through Sunday. There are trophies for both men’s and women’s winners and runner-ups.

Members are also encouraged to participate in Tennis Alberta tournaments. Several RTC members are active in these tournaments and have done well in recent years.
