Registration will be restricted to Men only until September 15th and if we do not have 24 Men signed up at that point, it will be open for Lady members who play at a high level and compete in tournaments out of town, to register until we have 24 players to fill the 6 courts. The cut-off for Registration will be September 29th.

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 want to be on the Spare List only, please email Eric at erichasenhuendl@shaw.ca with your name and best phone number.
