We will use the same format as past years with Courts 1,2,3 playing at 6:00 and Court 4,5,6 playing at 7:30 .

Cost for the Fall session is $90 for Members. Registration opens soon and the first 24 players to sign up and pay will be included.

Registration will be restricted to Men only until December 28th and if we do not have 24 Men signed up at that point, it will be open for Lady members to register until we have 24  players to fill the 6 courts. The cut-off for Registration will be January 5th.

It is imperative that each player commit to being there ready to play at the assigned times to be fair to the other players on the court. Each Player is responsible to find your own spare if you cannot make it any given week. If your spare wins the court, you do not move up but if your spare loses the court you do move down one court. If you do not arrange a spare, the first occasion you will be bumped down 2 Courts the following week, and the second occasion you will be removed from the league, with NO REFUND!

If you are a female tennis player at Global and want to join a community of other women who love tennis, sign up for this Sunday night Ladies League. The level of play for this league is between tournament level 3.5 to 5.0 players. If you self-assess as a 3.0 or are unsure of what your level would be, please email or call Makena.

The Winter Ladies League will run for 9 weeks, every Sunday starting January 8th until March 12th. There will be no league on Family Day Weekend, Sunday February 19th as the club will be closed early that evening.

There are 24 spots available, first come first serve with payment. The format remains the same as the Fall 2022 season, where Courts 1/2/3 will play at 4-5:30pm and Courts 4/5/6 will play at 5:30-7pm. Matches will be played in doubles format, rotating partners with the other people on your assigned court. At the end of your 1.5 hour rotation, the number of games won will dictate what court you end up on the next week, providing you the opportunity to play with other ladies of the tennis community. We are looking for competitive women who want to be challenged by their fellow players and want to enjoy themselves on court.

Cost for the Winter session is $90. Please ensure that you are committing to the whole 9 weeks of this league. If you cannot make the league on a night, you are responsible to find your own spare and ensure that they show up on time and ready to play. If your spare wins the court, you do not move up. If your spare loses the court, you do move down one court. If you do not arrange a spare, the first occasion you will be bumped down 2 Courts the following week, and the second occasion you will be removed from the league, with NO REFUND!
