Drop-in Mixed Socials
Drop-ins are available to our members, member guests and resort guests.
Throughout the year, if you would like to pick up a game, please come down and play. A member of our Tennis Pro Staff will be available and will set up in the tennis pergola between the clay courts to help arrange and rotate matches. A sign in sheet will be available at the pergola 1/2 hour prior to each drop-in. All balls will be provided!
The first 24 players to sign up will play. During the spring of 2018 there will be times when there are only 4 courts active. During this period you may be reduced to playing 2 out of 3, 35-minute rotations. Once all 8 courts are active we will use 6 courts for the drop in and you will play all rotations.
If would like to meet some new people to be able to play with, get some exercise, enjoy the clay or just pick up a game, come down and join in. This is an adult event for all ages and levels of play!
Drop in Fee: Members/free

Online Mixed Singles (Members Only)
The purpose of our new on-line ladder is to provide our members with a way of finding and playing, challenging and fun singles matches with other players of similar caliber. Challenges can be made and played at your convenience!
A row ladder will be formed with both Women and Men and will be singles only. Players may join at any time by contacting Russ or Sean and will be positioned slightly below their level to challenge their way to their proper positioning!
Summer 2018 | May to August
Ladders will be run seasonally. At the completion of our summer ladder, play will close and a new Fall Ladder will be formed.

"Play Tennis" - Self-Rating Guide
Find suitable playing partners and enjoy playing tennis more
The Self Rating Guide is not a rating of the level “you hope to play at” or “your best day ever” or strictly based on how well you hit the ball. This is a “full package” rating guide of your level of “PLAY”. This rating guide involves your tactical, technical, physical, mental and emotional skills, during competitive match play.
Use the “Play Tennis” Self-Rating Guide which identifies and describes different levels of tennis ability.
Find your own general level of tennis ability.
Find players of a similar level so that you can have competitive games.
Play an individual at a higher level using handicap scoring to make the game more competitive.
Participate in group lessons or league play with people of similar ability.
Guidelines to rate yourself:
Study the “Play Tennis” self-rating chart
Start reading from the top of the chart, beginning with Level 1.0.
Find the level that best describes your general level of play.
Ask your Instructor or Coach to validate your self-rating, if you think that will help.
Remember that as you play more, and improve, your rating may improve.
Update your rating periodically.
Results in social and competitive matches will validate whether your chosen level is reasonably accurate.
