The Official Announcement:
Changes to the Organized Play Round Robin Schedule. You must check to see if you are impacted by these changes.

Due to the increase of players at certain skill levels, the Board requested the Court Utilization Committee (CUC) look at the Organized Play Schedule and recommend possible revisions to accommodate growth. It is important to note that these changes were made to allow more people to play. As a result some Round Robins were assigned more courts and some were moved to different times to give them more courts. We remain, as always, dedicated to assuring Open Play Courts are available for our members during the hours from 9:00 am to 5:00 p.m., as well as a fair distribution of round robins and shootouts for all player skill levels based on the number of players in that skill level.
The Director of the CUC and its committee members in consultation with the Round Robin Captains, work many hours to construct a fair schedule based on the number of members in our club. Currently, 69% of our membership plays at the 3.0 and 3.5 skill level. The CUC made every effort to change the schedule with as few disruptions to people's schedules as possible. The Board has approved the changes recommended by the CUC. One of the changes you will note, is the addition of back-to-back round robins in the same level. The intent of the revision is to allow for the maximum number of participants in each scheduled Round Robin. We ask that you do not participate in both sessions of the same skill level so that everyone gets an opportunity to participate.

Changes in days and times impact: Women's Partners 3.5, 3.0/3.5 Couples, 3.5/4.0 Couples, 3.0 Women, 2.0 Mixed and 3.5 Men's Rated.

We often have to adjust the schedule half way through the season. This adjustment should be sufficient to see us through until the end of March. The Player Cards have been revised to reflect the new schedule and are available at the Courts as well as on the Blog.  To view and/or print the entire CUC schedule, the Daily Court Schedules or Player Cards, click on any of the following links.
