Tennis - FlexLeague information

FlexLeague information

Fall season is forming now in Chicago West Suburbs. Region includes suburbs west of I-294 expressway. Prior players have been from areas such as Aurora, Bartlett, Bloomingdale, Bolingbrook, Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn, Hinsdale, Naperville, Plainfield, Wheaton and Winfield.

Registration is open until August 24th and season starts on September 1st – October 27.

Matches are scheduled by players based on their availability (hence the word FlexLeague) and they will be played 50% at HOME (player selects the court) and 50% AWAY (opponents court). We strive to have 5-7 players/teams per flight. That would give you 4-6 matches.

Cost to play:
Singles – USTA Member ($25); non-USTA member ($35)
Doubles – USTA Member ($20); non-USTA member ($30)

The “home” player is required to supply the balls and arrange and pay if necessary for the court time unless both players agree to another arrangement. You can play outdoors or indoors, hard courts or clay courts, public or private courts.

The following flights are being offered:
Men’s Singles 3.5 and 4.0
Women’s Singles 3.5
Mixed Doubles 3.5

If you like to play doubles but don't have a partner, please send me a quick note and I can pair you with another player.

See attached files for Q&A and Rules of FlexLeague:

Coach Pitch - Developmental - 5 and 6 year olds - Introductory level for boys interested in baseball, this level teaches the basics of throwing, catching, hitting and base running. The emphasis is on teaching and fun since scores nor standings are kept.

Maverick - Developmental - 6 and 7 year olds - Introduction to the Pinto League with modified Pinto rules. Maverick starts the season with coach pitch and then converts to player pitch. This allows coaches to develop pitching in the first half of the season. This level is for 6 year olds who understand baseball fundamentals and want more competition than Coach Pitch and it is for 7 year olds who may not be ready for a full season of player pitch and the competition at the Pinto level.

Pinto - Competitive - 7 and 8 year olds - Pinto is for players looking for a higher level of development and competition but focus still on teaching the game. Scores and standings kept, playoffs at year end, full season of player pitch.

*In addition, there is a $50 per family activity fee

A COPY OF BIRTH CERTIFICATE IS REQUIRED FOR NEW PLAYERS
