Dear KTC community members,
 
Save the date for the KTC Doubles Club Championships, August 20th - 23rd 
 
Registration is now open!

 
This year, the men's and ladies' doubles tournament will begin on the Thursday before the weekend, rather than the usual Friday. We hope this will reduce the number of matches participants play in a single day and allow more down time between matches.
 
First round play starts 7:30 pm on Thursday, August 20th, with matches continuing until approximately 9:30 pm. Tournament play will continue with more first round matches starting at 5:30 pm into the evening of Friday, August 21st. Saturday will be a full day of tennis with matches starting at 9:00am and continuing into the late afternoon or early evening with the quarter-finals. Play continues Sunday morning with the semi-finals, followed by the tournament finals in the early afternoon. 
 
As always, the timing of matches is subject to change if the weather doesn't cooperate. We will do our best to accommodate everyone: if matches are delayed, stewards and tournament organizers will keep members up to date about revised match times.
 
This event is open exclusively to current KTC members. The entry fee for the tournament is $15, with players guaranteed at least 3 matches. While there unfortunately will be no BBQ social this year, we can promise a host of raffle prizes, complimentary refreshments, as well as special prizes for some of our winners and finalists. Stay tuned for more information!
 
If you are interested in participating but having difficulty finding a partner, let the stewards know! They can help connect you with another member also looking to play. 
 
Registration closes Monday, August 17th at 9:00 pm so sign up now!!
 
For the safety of members and staff, we are asking everyone to register and pay remotely, if at all possible. To register now and pay your $15 entry fee, please follow this link for instructions.
The defending Champions from 2019, Chloe Wilson and 
Emilie Norris-Roozmon, Jay Taylor and Len Guttenberger.
Only teams where both players have registered and paid fees by Monday August 17th at 9:00pm will be entered into the draw. If you are unable to register and pay remotely, the stewards can accommodate in-person sign-up at the clubhouse. Remember that a face mask must be worn if you are entering the clubhouse.
 
For members looking to get involved and volunteer their time over the weekend, please email Julie Hoffarth. Many members helped make the Singles Club Championship a great success by volunteering an hour or two of their time. Let's have an even bigger turnout for this event! 
 
And yes, like so much else this season, special precautions will be in place over the tournament weekend because of COVID. Stay tuned for more information on this in the coming days.
