The mixed-doubles registrations are presently taking place. I must know of all teams no later than Nov. 15. The Mixed-Doubles League is going to be based on final ratings only, not early start ratings. Final ratings usually come out the last week of November. You can have players register before the ratings come out, but please be aware that their rating may change once the final ratings are published. The Mixed-Doubles League is going to play from December to the end of April.

The Mixed League will have teams at the 6.0 Level (two 3.0 players, a 2.5 & 3.5, or 2.5 & 3.0), 7.0 Level (two 3.5 players, a 3.0 & 4.0, or a 3.0 & 3.5), 8.0 Level (two 4.0 players, a 3.5 & 4.5, or a 3.5 & 4.0), and at the 9.0 Level (two 4.5 players, a 4.0 and 5.0, or a 4.0 & 4.5). You may also have a combination of players a full level below (5.0 playing 6.0, etc.), although it is not encouraged. If anyone is looking to be placed on a team, please e-mail me at kathym65@aol.com and I will do my best to get you placed.
