Do you want to try something different? Most of you play in one of ALTA’s many leagues — men’s, women’s, mixed, seniors. These are fun leagues because you play someone different each week. How would you and your partner like to play three sets with a different opponent each set? You’ll play three, eight-game, no-ad sets with different opponents. They will be close to your level of play (e.g., B3’s will be playing against other high B players and B7’s will be playing against other low B players).
Each year, ALTA sponsors four doubles mixers — men’s, women’s, mixed, and senior mixed. We just completed women’s and men’s mixers on March 1 and March 8. Despite all the rain we had in February and March, we had sunny, warm weather and lots of fun on the courts. The pictures on this page are from these two mixers.
The next Mixed Doubles Mixer will be on Sunday, August 9 and the Senior Mixed Doubles will be held on Sunday, November 8. These are popular events and space is limited, so sign-up as soon as you receive an email from ALTA letting you know that registration is open. If you have any questions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
