Coming fall 2017 SE Valley Tennis League

Christine Terechenok

The Southeast Valley Tennis League will be open to all surrounding communities of SunBird.

Our goal is to create a fun, healthy tennis activity to add to a club’s schedule of events. It is a unique competitive play against other clubs.

Details: eight to 12 members per team; two men’s doubles; 2 women’s doubles; one mixed double. Each team supplies balls.

Entry: $5 per person

Playoffs: four highest teams

A match consists of five NO AD sets; includes two sets of men’s doubles, two sets of women’s doubles, one set of mixed doubles. These sets are played in any order. The home team’s captain determines order of play before the match starts. During each set the team captain can make a gender to gender substitution at any time. The player coming out cannot go back in the same set but can be used in another set.

The game is won by first to win 4 points. At 3-all the receiving team determines if the serve is received in the duece or add court.

The set is won when the first team reaches four games. At 3-all, a seven-point tie breaker determines the winner.

The four highest scoring teams will move on to the playoffs.
