This tournament is unique in that participants are only required to be Rossmoor residents; they are not required to be members of RTC. Also, Wild Card is played on the first Saturday of every month except November thru January, and then June.
This tournament moves players up and down a series of courts, splitting teams every round so that partners become opponents in the next round. It's a chop and change format with matches becoming more evenly competitive as the tournament progresses!
At this point in time Rossmoor plays interclub matches with two other senior communities: The Villages, located in San Jose, and Trilogy, located in Rio Vista. We are trying a new event with Trilogy Brentwood for 2018!
Normally, there are 8 teams with 5 players on each--giving 40 people a chance to play! Teams play on a main draw to find the overall winner, and a back draw to find the consolation winner. All teams play 3 rounds to get overall standings.
On the first Saturday in November, a tournament is held to decide who are the champions of Wild Card. This event is by invitation only, and it is reserved for those who have either come in first, second or third in the previous Wild Cards that year.
