How are matches arranged?

We have a number of adult "doubles groups" (see link on the left column), some of which play in the mornings and other in the early evening.  The players in each group are given a monthly schedule (by e-mail) and a list of subs to call in the event that they can't make it to a match for some reason.  We also have a "Singles Ladder" (see link on the left column) where singles players make challenges and arrange the day, time and location of their matches.  We also have drop-in doubles matches on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings, and a Singles drop-in on Sunday mornings at Cushman Park.

Can I arrange my own matches during the week?
Yes, we put out a data base which has everyone’s contact information so that you can contact others to play whenever you choose.
