House Leagues To Start Monday Sept. 20th.

For years, people have been asking for the Singles House League to be moved to Mondays. Well you've got it. As of Monday Sept. 20th both the Singles and the Doubles House Leagues will be on Monday nights. For those who want to play in both, you are going to be quite busy running back and forth between the two courts, but Nicole promises to make every effort to ease the way by scheduling your singles so it doesn't conflict with the doubles.
