Skill Level "Move Up" Guidelines
Our board recently adopted these guidelines. Read them HERE if you are unsure as to what skill level you should be playing in tournaments. We give you four criteria to consider in deciding if you should move up to the next skill level.
New Lights at Lincoln
The new lights are now active at Lincoln Park on the east courts and 2 of the west courts. Here are the operating instructions:
-The master light timer begins daily at dusk and ends at 10 p.m.
-Players activate the lights by pressing the silver button located on the electrical box on the east courts
-Lights will stay on for 55 minutes at which time a strobe light will notify them that there is 5 minutes remaining
-Pressing the button again will extend for additional 55 minutes
