Onion Fest

Seems like there are many great tournaments this year includling Twlight tourneys. I was hoping to head out to Houston for that MZ but I will be in Houston next weekend so yet another trip down there won't work out. I am looking forward to Waco, doubles partner out there?

If you are just looking to get out and play some casual tennis in the midst of the Major Zones and ultra competitive league tennis season here is an option for you that looks like fun. It is part of the Princeton Onion Festival which will be raising money for their town and for needy children in that area.

It is on a Saturday so us 4.0s have no tennis conflicts, hope to see you all there.

A random drawing will determine whom you play doubles with and what court you will start.
Arrive at 12:30 pm to meet and greet who you are starting out with and warm up.
Round robin will start at 1:00 pm.
Courts will be arranged 1 through 8 with the # 1 court being the top or winners court.
The team that wins on the top court will stay on that court and the team that loses on the bottom court will stay on that court.
Whether the team wins or loses that team will then play the next match against each other forming a new doubles team from the other court.
The first team to win 3 games out of 5 games will advance up to the next court while the losing team moves down.
A match may not last longer then 30 minutes. You may take quick break before your next match. If the whistle is blown and the game count is tied, the next point wins. If the score is 30/30 and the whistle is blown during the point whoever wins that point moves up. Always finish your point. If there are questions you can ask the tennis coordinator.
Awards will be given to the player or players with the most wins and the most losses.
