Fall Adult Tennis Ladder - Last Call

The Fall Equinox is here and so is the start of the Fall Challenge Ladder Season.  If you would like to play on one (or two) of the Challenge Ladders please email Head Pro Dave Keeney at  The rules and general guidelines for the ladder are posted on the Chapel Hill Tennis Club blog located at  Matches will be issued this week in time for weekend challenges.

This Fall we are also trying out something new, as proposed by your fellow club members.  For the first time at the tennis club we will have a Mixed Doubles Challenge Ladder.  The season will consist of 8 assigned matches (and plenty of free-challenges) before winter comes and takes the clay courts.  If you are interested in joining the ladder but don't have a partner in mind, club members Tony and Jill Raney, as well as Sean Burrus, can hold a social or two for the purpose of finding one.  In order for the ladder to work you will have to stick with the same partner for the entire season, but then you can kick them to the curb and get a new partner for the next season.  Interested?  Please email Dave Keeney at

Fall Junior Ladder & Junior Team Tennis - Last Call                                                                                                                                     
The cooler weather is here and it's time to get our tennis gear!  We have on the Fall menu
Interclub Tennis with The Farm, Croasdaile, and Chapel Hill Country Club, and hopefully Governor's Club.  All matches have not been set, but we do have 3 set for October already.  The first match is scheduled for Saturday October 5th from 3-5PM AT Croasdaile Country Club, followed by Saturday October 19th 3-5pm HOME against Croasdaile, and Friday October 25th 5-7pm AT Chapel Hill Country Club.  Mark it on your calendars!  The other clubs will be focusing more on 12s and 14s playing but I hope that we can get 10s and 16s in there as well.  Each match will be different as the total number and ages of kids will vary.  Even if you are periodically playing against players from your own club, the matches can be used as valuable learning experiences.  Something positive can be taken away from each match you play no matter who is the stronger player.  

It will be much easier to have a larger number of kids participate during our home matches (only one scheduled for now, looking to schedule at least two more), so we might have to narrow down the total number of kids that can travel initially.  I know that Croasdaile wants to focus on 12s, 14s, 16s, and 18s and that they will have some strong players in each division.  Please let me know by Tuesday October 1st if you would like to travel and play against Croasdaile.  If you want to be included in the later matches that have been scheduled (and those to be scheduled), please email me and let me know by Tuesday October 1st as well.                                                                                                                                                          

Also, the Junior Ladder will start October 7th.  I want to have 3 divisions this season.  You are used to hearing about the two Intermediate and Advanced groups, but I want to have an Orange Ball 10U ladder as well.  The 10U division will play shortened sets to 4 with a 3rd set tiebreak while the Intermediate and Advanced divisions will play regular scoring, 2 out of 3 sets with a 3rd set match tiebreak.  Deadline to register for each division is Wednesday October 2nd with first match weeks match ups going out Monday October 7th.  Records and scores will be updated WEEKLY.  Please reserve your spot through me at Head Pro Dave Keeney at
