Quads League Description
Purpose: To provide good fun and fellowship through the game of doubles tennis.
Format: Doubles (regular scoring)
Start/End Dates: Play begins on June 1st and continues for 10 consecutive weeks- skipping July 6th ending August 10th. Rain outs are not made up.
Time: Play begins promptly at 8am (due to the heat). All players should arrive 15 minutes early for warm-up including serves. Any player arriving past the start time forfeits warm-up time and is docked one game point for every minute late.
League Fee: $10 per player for members, $20 per player for nonmembers.
Court Assignment: Players are assigned a court on the first day of play. After the first day of play, court movement is determined by a player’s individual performance. Depending on their individual score for the day, a player may move up one court, down one court, or stay on the same court the following week (see Court Movement for details.)
Order of Play: Each week, all courts receive a score card with each player’s names and positions. Play proceeds with each player partnering once with each of the other three players for one set.
Scoring: At the end of all three rounds, each player’s individual games won for all three rounds are totaled.
Court Movement: The player with the most games won after three rounds will move up one court the following week. The player with the least games won will move down one court the following week. The other two players will stay on the same court the following week. In case of a tie, the player higher on the card will move up one court; the player lower on the card will move down one court. Each week, each court will lose two players (the winner going up to the next court and the loser going down) and each court will gain two new players (the loser from the court above and the winner from the court below). Exception: each week, Court 1 loses only one player going down and receives one player coming up. Likewise, the last court loses only one player going up and receives one player coming down.
Substitutes: Each player is responsible for their own position. When a player has a conflict, the player is responsible for finding a similarly rated substitute to play in their place. The Local League Coordinator is not responsible for finding substitutes. A substitute list will be provided to all regular players at the beginning of the season. A substitute cannot move a player up to a higher court but a substitute can move a player down to a lower court. If a substitute wins the most games, the next regular player with the most games won will move up to the next court the following week. For cumulative scoring purposes, the player who has a substitute receives only one-half credit for the number of games won by their substitute for that day.
Failure to Play: If a player fails to play and fails to provide a substitute for any reason, leaving three other players without a fourth, that player is automatically dropped to the last position on the last court the following week. If the same player fails to play and has no substitute a second time, that player is dismissed from the league for the duration of that season. No exceptions. No refunds. The Local League Coordinator will be responsible for finding another player to play in the dismissed player’s place for the duration of that season.
Share-A-Spot: If a player worries that they may need a substitute on several occasions during the season, the player may opt to share a spot with another player. The two players alternate weeks of play as they choose and move up/down the courts as if they are one player.
Season Winner: At the end of the season, the player with the most cumulative games won (no matter what court they are on) is pronounced “Most Points Won” Season Winner and will get a special prize.
