OPEN TENNIS RETURNS TO THE BUCKEYE COURTS
The Rossmoor Tennis Club is setting up a new format to make singles play more accessible to Rossmoor players who previously enjoyed the Tuesday and Thursday Open Tennis before the pandemic struck. It can also help players new to Rossmoor find partners who play at their level. All Rossmoor residents are welcome.
Starting Tuesday, Aug. 11, three courts will be reserved on Tuesday and Thursday between 10 a.m. and noon for Drop-in tennis. Court 4 will be designated for Less Aggressive players, Court 5 for Intermediate players and Court 7 for Advanced players. Players are encouraged to choose the court where they are well-matched with the other players on the court.
Play will still be singles only but with unlimited rotations under the new rotation rules. A player will enter the court ready to serve using their own personally marked balls. The player who just served will put their personal balls away and rotate to the receiver position. The person who just received will leave the court to wait outside the fence at the back of the line of players waiting to play. Players will use no-ad scoring to keep the rotation going quickly. Players waiting to rotate in must wear masks, keep 6 ft spacing and use only a personal seat.
If this new Drop-in play proves popular, additional courts will be reserved for it.
The Tennis Club is continuing to look for ways to make the singles game more enjoyable for all Rossmoorians. General information about the Rossmoor Tennis Club can be found at www.rossmoortennis.com.
