Doubles Club Championship Date Change

The date of our Doubles Club Championships has been changed to the week of April 19th-24th (the week following the singles tournament).  Our women's "C" team has made it to the finals on Wednesday night and both of our men's doubles teams have made it to the semi-finals on Thursday night (at home).  With Monday being a holiday, there just wasn't enough nights to get all the matches in without scheduling extremely early and late matches. 

If this week no longer works for anyone please let me know and I will take you off the list. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend and I will see you on the courts!
