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 Sunday April 25th 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 last season’s 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 The Competitions Director with the following information: Main contact telephone number, e-mail, full name, and skill level (if new to RTC).

Doubles Competition

For 2022, the RTC Doubles League is scheduled to commence on April 11. The League will run until June 03, with the Playoffs to be held during the weeks of June 06 and 13.  All 3 courts will be in use.

This year we will have three Divisions: Women’s, Men’s¬†and¬†Mixed.¬†The Women’s Division will play Tuesday¬†evenings, the Men’s Thursday¬†evenings , and the Mixed Friday¬†evenings.¬†There will be an “A” and “BDraw in each Division.

Due to constraints on court time this spring, we may have to “cap” the number of Doubles Teams in each Division to 18 teams, so the sooner a Team signs up for the league the better.¬†The deadline for entry will be March 30, 2022 with the Draws to be completed and sent out in early April. ¬†

If you do not have a partner, but wish to play, let us know and we will do our best to find you one. For more information or to register, please contact the Doubles League Co-ordinator.

Singles Tournaments

Once again, a fun Spring singles tournament is scheduled for Saturday, May 29th. 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¬†September 9-12. 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.
