Next up will be the Tri-Level League which will start the end of September. The Tri-Level League will be based on the “early start ratings.” If you are not participating in the Tri-Level, please do not go by these ratings. They are not final and can change. The Tri-Level is three courts of doubles, one court at the 3.5 Level, one at 4.0 and one at 4.5. We will also try to have a 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 Tri-Level League run at the same time. If you are interested, please e-mail me at kathym65@aol.com for more information.

The Mixed-Doubles League will begin in January and will be based on the final rating which will be available at the end of November. For this league, please contact me in November if you are having a team or looking to play on a team.

Thank you to all of the league participants for making this such a successful program, and I especially thank all of the team captains … your hard work and effort is appreciated.
