Team Tennis Summer 2019

TEAM TENNIS SUMMER 2019 – MORE CAPTAINS NEEDED PLEASE!

Whilst spring may seem a long way off, it is at this time of year when we need to sort out the captains for the various summer inter club league teams. We tend to have the same willing volunteers every year running the teams, to whom we are very grateful. However, it may be the case that many members in the Club do not even realise that the team tennis takes place, or indeed what teams we have, or how to get involved. Therefore we want to take this opportunity make members aware of what is required of a team captain, and to ask for volunteers to captain summer teams.

We have teams in the following leagues:

  • Watford and District – Week night matches (Mon, Tues or Thurs) 6.30pm-8.30pm. We have 3 mens teams, 3 ladies teams and 2 mixed teams, there are 3 pairs in each team, and each pair plays a total of 3 sets. There are typically 12 matches for each team (6 home, 6 away) from April through to August. The fixtures are issued by the league
  • Herts League – Weekend matches. We have 2 mens and 2 ladies teams. There are 3 pairs in each team, and each pair plays 6 sets. These matches last 5 hours so are a good work out! There are typically 6 matches across the season from April – September, and the captains sort the match dates at a fixture meeting in March.
  • Team Tennis – Weekend matches. This is a national competition with local preliminaries. We have 1 mens and 1 ladies team. The matches consist of 4 singles rubbers and then 2 doubles. The team can have up to 8 players. There are typically 4 matches and the fixtures are issued by the league.
  • Hot Rackets – Weekend matches. We have 1 mens and 3 ladies teams. There are 2 pairs in each team, and each pair plays 4 sets. There are typically 8 matches across the season from April – August, and the fixtures are issued by the league.

Team captains need to:

  • Agree their squad of players with the other team captains (Jordan can help advise on potential players and the “levels” of the teams)
  • Sort out teams for each match
  • Liaise with the opposing team captains to confirm the fixtures, and rearrange if rained off
  • Ensure match teas are provided for home matches, unless agreed otherwise with the opposing team captain.

We really need members to volunteer to captain teams – IN PARTICULAR WE ARE SHORT OF CAPTAINS FOR THE WATFORD & DISTRICT MIXED A, HERTS LEAGUE LADIES A, AND BOTH THE MENS AND LADIES TEAM TENNIS TEAMS . If you can spare the time to run one of these teams, can you please contact the coaches ( tennis@rltsc.co.uk ) or Alison Argyle ( alisonargyle64@gmail.com ).

Please step forward to help make team tennis enjoyable and successful at Radlett.
