The Metro Corporate Tennis League, presented by Advantage Tennis Clubs is a joint initiative of the Metrotennis Community Tennis Association (MCTA) and USTA/Eastern–Metro Region. Our League is divided into three levels of play, Intermediate (3.0-3.5), Advanced Intermediate (4.0) and Advanced (4.5+). We also offer an Advanced Beginner Clinic program for teams that are not ready to compete.
We are delighted to announce that we just finished playing the finals for the Fall 2013 season. We would like to congratulate the winners of our leagues, HBO (Intermediate Division), Credit Agricole (Advanced Intermediate Division) and Deloitte (Advanced Division).
Our finals and end-of-season parties took place at Roosevelt Island Racquet Club. To help culminate the Fall 2013 season we rented the entire Club for all guests to enjoy a tennis round-robin, buffet dinner and an open bar!
While we are excited that the Fall 2013 season is behind us, we are just as excited to start taking teams for the Winter 2014 season. We are expecting to have more than 50 corporate teams. The season will run from February to April. For more information regarding the League, please contact Luis Espinoza by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2014 Winter Season set to launch
The 2014 Winter Metro Corporate Tennis League will begin late January and run through April and includes a minimum of six matches. Each match is played for two hours on two courts, and tennis balls are provided. The 2014 Winter Season will conclude with an end-of-season party where all League participants will enjoy a buffet dinner and open bar, tennis, dancing, and other activities. The winners of all divisions advance to the semifinals or finals for their League.
Play format for each match consists of six individual matches played as regular “no-ad” sets:
►One women’s singles
►One men’s singles
►One women’s doubles
►One men’s doubles
Levels of play are Advanced, Advanced Intermediate, Intermediate and Advanced Beginner (which consists of four matches and two teaching clinics.) Games won are totaled cumulatively throughout the season. The winners of all divisions (except the Advanced Beginner) advance to playoffs at the end-of-season party. In case of a tie, the head-to-head scores will be the tie-breaker. Coaching and player substitutions are permitted during the match. This allows for more players to get involved and creates a fun atmosphere.
All League Champions have the opportunity to advance to the National WTT playoffs.
The Corporate League emphasizes networking and social occasions, as well as opportunities to improve your tennis game. Each League night, refreshments are served after the matches, including hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer.
Special group tennis lessons are also available for teams at an additional fee at the Advantage Tennis Clubs—Manhattan Plaza, New York Tennis Club and Roosevelt Island Racquet Club.
