League Play

Organized competitive teams are allowed to use the Oakleigh tennis courts with the following restrictions:

  • Any team planning to play organized — e.g. ALTA, USTA Leagues — tennis using Oakleigh courts must attempt to fill their roster with Oakleigh homeowners. This should be done by posting a notice on the board at the tennis courts, two weeks prior to roster submittal deadlines. If enough Oakleigh homeowners cannot be found to fill the team, it is then permisible to have up to 25% non-homeowner participation.
  • Non-homeowners will be charged a $10 court fee per season. This fee is to be collected by the Team Captain and remitted to the Oakleigh Homeowners Association prior to the start of the season.
  • During league play, one court must always be open for resident use unless two Oakleigh teams are playing home matches.
  • After an Oakleigh team has received its schedule, the dates and times of all home matches and the practice schedule shuold be posted on the sign-up board at the courts.
  • If there are two or more Oakleigh teams during a season, the tennis committee will help determine non-conflicting practice schedules and court rotation for match play.

Problems with the courts should be reported directly to any member of the Oakleigh Homeowners Association Board.
