The 55 & Over League will begin their playoffs mid-August, with their sectional event set for the weekend of Sept. 27-29. We wish all of our advancing teams the best of luck!

Next up will be the Tri-Level League (three doubles courts, one at the 3.5 Level, 4.0 Level and 4.5 Level). Details have not yet been worked out, but we are planning to run it as a weekend event like we did last year. We will do the best we can with which weekends in October, but I cannot take into account everyone’s plans, and whether or not teams are going to Nationals. It’s a lot of court time I am going to have to find, and it has to be based on that.

The Mixed-League will begin the end of October and run through April 2015. I will be e-mailing last year’s captains in September. If you would like to captain a new team this year, please e-mail me at kathym65@aol.com.
