Singles League; Sign Up Now!
Welcome to the BRC Singles Tennis League.
This Flex Scheduling League is formed to fulfill those players looking for evenly matched singles players to find each other.
The format is the creation of 3 to 4 player flights from the participants who will have matches against each other over 2 weeks. Scores are reported back to the coordinator; Phil Heft, firstname.lastname@example.org who will arrange new flights based on wins and losses for the next "flight".
Even if you are incorrectly placed on the ladder, within a couple of flights you should find your group to be similar level players with competitive matches. There is no trophy or cash for being at the top, the objective is for fun play and meeting other women and men singles loving people. I emphasize this is mixed gender, there is no separation.
The league allows for vacations and can adapt for injuries, just ask for a bye during the 2 week segment you cannot play.
Sign-up is ongoing- if interested contact
