LEAGUES AND PROGRAMS

ROUND ROBINS

Round robins are played in doubles format and provide an opportunity to play with a variety of opponents.  

Check back for our next session dates.

SINGLES LADDER

We run ladders for men and women. Ladders are match play against adults of a similar level in our local area. New opponents are assigned every 2 weeks. Players and opponents coordinate matches together to schedule times that are mutually acceptable.  Scores are then recorded in UTR (Universal Tennis Rating) to help build player ratings and track ladder ranking.  Ladders are $25 for members, $35 for non-members.  Balls are provided. Ladders generally run September to May. Check back soon for registration information.

USTA LEAGUES

USTA Leagues are a great way to combine competitive play and the social side of tennis.  Leagues run at different times throughout the year.  Typical schedules include: fall/winter- Men’s and Women’s Tri-level leagues and several Mixed Doubles leagues,  spring/summer- Men’s and Women’s leveled leagues.   Call or stop by to get more information or to be connected with a captain.​

TOURNAMENTS

We host several club-level adult tournaments throughout the year. Have fun and test your skills. Check back for upcoming tournament information.  Join us in supporting our Binghamton University Bearcat Varsity Tennis Teams. Every year we host team Meet and Greets as well as skills clinics and socials with our varsity athletes!

CONTRACT LESSONS

Is your contract group interested in coordinating on-going group lessons in conjunction with your contract court time? If so, we offer discounted rates:

 

 

 

Contract play is an opportunity to purchase a court for a 12-week block of time for either one or two hours. The day and time reserved will be a weekly reservation. This guarantees your time is available unless there is a scheduled event. Contract dates, times and rates for fall are generally released in late July and in mid-December for Spring once all varsity athletic schedules have been confirmed.  Contact the front desk at 607-777-3491 for more information.

  • You must be a member to play in a contract

  • Contracts are offered in two 12-week blocks, one in fall and one in spring

  • Contracts will be available during specified time blocks each day of the week (determined each semester)

  • Contract captains must submit their complete contract roster and pay the contract fee in full at the time of selection

  • Any contract not paid within two business days of selection will be forfeited and offered to another member

  • Once you have a contracted block, you will have the first right of refusal for the same day/time the following spring contract period, as available
