Women’s League


OUR WOMEN’S LEAGUE is the largest and best in the Westchester-Fairfield County area. Leagues play Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., with levels ranging from 3.0 to 4.5.  We offer 1 1/2 and 2 hour Doubles as well as 1 and 1 1/2 hour Singles. Leagues play 26 weeks from September to April. Players can opt for full share or half share. Scores are recorded and rankings computed for each player in each league. Evaluations of new players for placement are held each September.

ARRIVAL/DEPARTURE: All players must arrive 10 minutes before league play to check court assignments, collect balls, pay balance, and fill water bottles. After play, please put refuse into waste containers, return balls and towels to Front Desk and record scores. Please do not leave court before league play is complete.

SUBSTITUTES: All Substitutes other than full-share league members and all non-league players must pay a court fee at the Front Desk prior to play. There is no charge for substituting in Doubles matches for full share Doubles league members or in Single matches for full-share Single league members.

MAKE-UPS: When possible, a maximum of two Singles or Doubles matches will be rescheduled as make-ups in other groups closest to your level. We will continue to offer make-ups during vacations when prior arrangements are made.

WARM-UP/FIRST SERVE: Ten minute warm-up. For Doubles use two balls. Spin for serve. Please do not play first (serve) in.

DOUBLES PLAY: One and 1½ hour leagues play three 6-game pro-sets with no-ad scoring. Two hour leagues play three 7-game pro-sets with no-ad scoring. In no-ad scoring, at 3-all (deuce), receiver has choice of side; the next point wins the game. If sets are tied 5-all (or 6-all) play a 9-point tie breaker. The next server serves 2 points; opponent serves 2 points, alternating until one team wins 5 points. At 4-4, last server gets an extra serve and receiver has choice of side. Upon completion of set, rotate partner. USTA rules apply.

SINGLES PLAY: Play regular scoring, not pro-sets. If tied at 6-all play a 12-point tie breaker. The next server serves 1 point from deuce court; opponent serves 2 points starting from ad court; alternate serves (2 each) until 7 points are won by margin of 2 points. USTA rules apply.

RECORDING SCORES (DOUBLES/SINGLES): Record completed sets and games and incomplete set scores on score sheets at end of play at the Front Desk. All players, including sub and make-ups, must record scores.

CANCELLATIONS: Notification should be given at the earliest possible time, day or night, no later than the day prior to play.
