Leagues

Welcome to League Play at St Clair Tennis! Every effort will be made to give you a positive experience with players of your skill level.  We have men’s singles and doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. All league participants (including substitutes) must be members of St Clair Tennis. Call to find the league that’s best for you!

League Policies

  1. All league participants and substitutes must be members of St Clair Tennis.
  2. There is a $7.00 league set-up fee to cover administrative costs of organizing/managing the leagues.
  3. League fees will be charged to your account and billed in 8 equal monthly increments. For example:
    • A daytime doubles’ league is figured at $27/hr court-time X 1 ½ hrs = $40.50. Each player pays $10.13/week, playing for 36 weeks equals $364.68 total. That league player pays 8 monthly payments of $45.59. League bills are emailed on the 1st of the month Oct through May.
    • an evening doubles league is figured at $30/hr court-time X 1 ½ hrs = $45.00. Each player pays $11.25/week, playing for 36 weeks equals $405.00 total. That league player pays 8 monthly payments of $50.63. League bills are emailed on the 1st of the month Oct through May. Leagues buy weekly balls from the club and that cost is divided by the 4 players/court and charged to your account.
  4. League members who are unable to play their scheduled time are responsible to arrange for a substitute AND to notify St Clair Tennis of the substitution. Substitute lists are provided. If you would like St Clair Tennis to find a substitute, please request this as early as possible and a substitute player will be found for a fee of $5.00. (DO NOT USE EMAIL TO REQUEST THAT ST CLAIR FIND A SUB.)
  5. St Clair Tennis tries its hardest to find a sub if requested to do so. However, if a sub absolutely cannot be found, league members can decide if they still want to play. There are no refunds or make-ups in this situation.
  6. No-Show Policy
    • A league player who does not show up for his league with no substitute arranged will be charged for the whole court.
    • If St Clair Tennis is notified that a substitute will play, and that sub does not show up, the substitute will be charged for the whole court. If St Clair Tennis was not notified in advance, and the sub does not show, the league member will be charged for the whole court.
  7. CANCELLATIONS: Due to the difficulty of late season make-ups, leagues will be cancelled because of weather only when absolutely necessary. Cancelled leagues will be notified via email. (If you don’t have email, please call the club.) Leagues cancelled by the club will be paid for as if they were played and the league will make up at the end of the season. There is no refund or credit.
  8. Any league player who plans to leave the league permanently will give the management a 3-week written notice and will be responsible for payment through those 3 weeks or until a replacement is found, whichever comes first.
  9. Non-marking tennis shoes must be worn. Rosin bags are not allowed on the court.
  10. St Clair Tennis provides a filtered water fountain/bottle filler located in the lobby. Please bring a container for your water. A water jug is also available by the outside door in the court walkway.
  11. Hand-size towels are available for purchase at $2/towel.
