Rossmoor's mixed doubles team plays in a league that starts on September 18th, 2016 and ends on November 13, 2016. There will be a total of ten matches played against five other clubs. Each team will take turns hosting the event. There will be three doubles matches played, with the winner taking at least two out of three of the individual matches. The scores will be reported to the league coordinator by computer. The top four teams in the league will play each other in a playoff format, with the winner going to a sectional tournament to be held at a place to be determined.
When the clubs play each other there will be time to host afterwards. The home teams will provide lunch for the visitors. The Buckeye BBQ area has always been a popular spot when Rossmoor hosts teams from around the Bay Area.
