Ft Worth Fall League
Ft Worth Fall Leagues are starting this week-end with the highly unstable 1 Singles 3 Doubles format.
So here is the Fall Pre-season Preview.
3.5 is split into a Red and Blue Divisions.
Total of ten scheduled matches, first match Sept 19.
In the Blue Div the favorite should be the RTC Coyotes, Followed by the Southlake Racketqueers,
(really, you have to expect that if you name your team the Racqueteers, what were you thinking?)
Watch out for new comers Robson Ranch, which is apparently a retirement community in Denton, I will leave the jokes up to you.
In the Red Div nobody really stands out, ATC choked in the spring and had several of their players bumped but still has fielded a decent team, TCU seems to have a deep team as well. These two maybe as good a pick as any.
4.0 is Split into two divisions Red and Blue
Total of 6 matches with a Flighted 16 team draw post season tournament.
First Match Sept 12th
Blue Div (Suburban Div)
This flight is all the teams east of I-35W.
Of the 3 RTC teams, RTC Wylie look the toughest.
Southlake has managed to put together a large team, but with only 6 matches and 4 lines I expect there will be some unhappy players on this team.
The dark horse favorite - Team Flower Mound, Keep your eyes on these boys in both the fall and the spring.
Both McLeland teams have fled that hole and are at the Arlington TC now, Look for the Old Gang to put together a Salty crew for the Fall.
Look for one of the TCU teams to compete with them.
6 Teams 10 matches
First match Sept 12
I fully expect TCU to dominate this Division.
There are almost as many 4.0's in this division as there are on a Garland/Sisk 3.5 team.
if any of you bumped down 4.5's need a 4.0 team give me a holla!
Note: Good to see the LTF West in Collyville finally get a men's team.
