I really should be working but I have been a little sick this week so blogging requires less concentration so here is one more thought for the day.
I know I have posted results but I am also wondering if you all have any ideas, complaints or compliments about Dallas League Tennis.
I moved from CA and the first thing I love about Dallas tennis is the participation. We were lucky to get 13 teams to play 3.5 tennis as opposed to Dallas with 30 teams. Which seems crazy since LA has 3 times the population.
Here are some rules and ideas I know that might be worth thinking about:
3rd set tiebreaker: Good, bad or EVIL???
Team names: Why the hell not, I personally hate having my name as part of the team, I have an ego but not a big enough one that I need my name at the top. I have named my teams anyway especially since I have multiple teams it makes it easier for me to tell them apart.
Weeknight leagues: I have run into a few people who don’t join league tennis because of weekend commitments why not a league during the week as well as the weekend league??
Weekend schedules: Do you think it would be crazy to open it up to the captain to decide whether the match will be on Saturday or Sunday?
Sundays: Matches before 1p???? Sacrilege or a good idea?
Singles league/Doubles leagues: in off seasons many other large cities have single leagues and doubles leagues instead of the Fall format we have. What do you think?
Fall Champ automatic Bid: Do you like the idea of the Fall champ getting the auto bid or do we need a season off to just play?
Let me know about any other issues you have thought about or bitched about during league play and maybe we can bring them up at our next meeting in 2008.
