Tennis Activities

Singles

If you like to play singles…we have the league for you. This league is designed for the player who enjoys the freedom of scheduling the place, date and time of their matches.

Each week of the season you will have a different opponent, of similar skill level, but the flexibility of court location and time. You and your opponent decide when and where your match will be played. You have one week to complete the match and report your scores.

Every game you win throughout the season counts as 1 point. The players are paired by point ranking for the season finals.

We offer both men’s and women’s singles at various skill levels.

Doubles / Mixed Doubles

We offer the most fun mixed doubles around.

Grouped by similar skill level, our mixed double teams consist of 2 players per team. The team captain determines who plays each week. Each team member plays a least 6 of 9 weeks.

In the case of Queen City teams, each division has 4 men and 4 women. Queen City League Rules Apply To the MMT/QC teams.

Team Matches

A mixed doubles team match consists 4 sets. 2 sets played on each of 2 side by side courts. You play 1 set with one team member then switch to play the second set with a different teammate.

Cumulative Scoring for Teams

To ease the pressures of competitive tennis, MatchMaker uses a cumulative scoring format. The match winner is determined by totaling the games won during all six sets. The team with most games won that day, wins the match. This cumulative scoring allows a team to compensate for weaker players or “bad days”. Our intent is to play tennis for fun, and to prevent fiercely competitive one sided matches. Cumulative scoring allows any team to have a fair chance at winning up through the end of the season. Each week the scores will be updated on the web site to keep all players abreast of the standings.

In the event of a 6-6 set score tie, the standard 12 point tiebreaker is used, 1 game is added to the tiebreaker winner and reported as 7-6

If a match ends with a tied score, a tiebreaker is played and 1 game is added to the winning team’s score.

3 on 3 Team Tennis

The Most Fun. The Most Variety.

Our unique Coed Team Tennis format mixes it up with men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles…all during the same match.

A coed team consists of 3 players (either 2 men and 1 woman or 2 women and 1 man) per team.

3 on 3 Team Matches

A coed doubles team match consists 4 sets. It is played on 2 courts that are side by side. In the case of a 2 man / 1 woman format, there is 1 set of men’s doubles on one court and 1 set of singles on the other court. At the end of the set, the women move over to the doubles court and play a set of mixed. 1 man from each team then moves over to the singles court and plays a set of singles.
