Round Robin Play
Round Robins are free to P2P Club Members. Non-members may participate for $3. This is in addition to the daily court fee, and is payable online through the Events Page, or at the courts.
A “Round Robin” is a structured form of play, typically organized by
skill levels. Round Robins are intended to be more social than competitive. We will begin the season without dividing by skill level.
If we have enough interest, we will divide into skill level
categories. In the time allocated to each Round Robin session (90
minutes) you will play six games, each with a different partner and
against a different pair of opponents. Games will be played to 11. At the end of each game, the winning team is responsible for
reporting the score to the Round Robin Captain. There will be no more
than 2 minute breaks between games. This is designed to be
recreational, fun play. Please adjust your game so that everyone on the
court has a good time. This means two things: Do NOT avoid hitting to
the stronger player on the court. It’s extremely irritating to never
get the ball. All players on the court should be getting to play
roughly the same percentage of shots. Do NOT continually smash a
low-level player. It’s just not nice. Share the love, and smash both
players on the other side of the net equally.
When you arrive you will be assigned a number. Your number remains yours throughout the session and dictates which court you play on, with whom you are playing as a partner, and against which opponents. Your Round Robin Captain will help you get started with this. By the end of six games you will have played with six different partners and against 12 different opponents! If there is an uneven number of players signed up, you may have a “bye” (where you sit out for one game). If you have a “bye” there will be a seventh game played consisting of the “bye” players so that everybody gets to play six games.
It is important that players arrive AT LEAST ten minutes before the
Round Robin is scheduled to start. Late arrivals may be replaced or
simply not allowed to play. If you sign up for a Round Robin and then
find that you can not play, you MUST find a replacement player.
