Social League Format- with volunteer league coordinator
Social Leagues are for members to play in a social environment. Each social league determines its own format and how competitive it is to be. Social Leagues are not required to follow specific league format or rules. But are encouraged to follow the USTA’s THE CODE regarding court etiquette and rules of play.
Social League General Guidelines
- Have Fun!
- Participants s are encouraged to follow the USTA’s THE CODE for court etiquette and rules of play.
- Participants agree to attempt to find their own sub if they are unable to play.
- Participants agree to allow Body First to share their contact information (including but not limited to phone numbers and emails) to other league members for other league players being able to obtain subs.
- League participants agree to welcome new players as possible subs or participants that are of similar ability.
In-House League Fees
Social league fees include all court fees, facility use, and administrative costs. Leagues are to be paid upfront or billed in their entirety to their account. There is not a pay as you go option for leagues. At the beginning of each session, participants will be charged League fees for that session. League schedules must be turned in prior to the first day of the session in order to be able to charge members.
- Legacy Member: $0 times the # of times scheduled to play
- Sports Members: $4 times the # of times scheduled to play
- Basic Membership: $8 times the # of times scheduled to play
- Non-Member: $15: times the # of times scheduled to play
Ex: Tina Tennis (a sports member) is scheduled to play 8 times during the January/February session. She would be charged $32 ($4X8). Tina can’t play one day and finds a sub (a nonmember), who sub will only need to purchase a day pass and Tina’s league fees cover the sub’s league fee.
Balls for Social Leagues
Players are responsible for providing their own balls. Body First can offer the storage of league balls. Players may also choose to check out a ball hopper, but players are requested not to take balls from teaching carts.
In-House League Substitutes
A substitute is defined as anyone not listed to play on the submitted league schedule on a given day and will be playing for a scheduled player who has paid League fees. Simply calling oneself a substitute does waive your league fees if you are scheduled to play.
If a player cannot play, it is their responsibility to find a substitute and inform the league captain of who their substitute is. A players league fees that they pay at the beginning of the session will not be refunded when a player pays.
Social League-League Captain
League captains are part of the magic that makes social leagues possible. Each league shall choose a league captain that will be responsible for
- coordinating a league schedule with league players.
- Submitting League Schedule before the first day of the session to Body First for scheduling and billing purposes.
- Helps maintain a list of-of possible subs to help players find a possible sub.
Social League- Non-Members
All non-members must check in and pay for a day pass at the front desk before they go out on the court. Non Members are invited to participate as part of Social leagues, however, members will be given priority for subbing for leagues and enrollment for league play. Non-members must pay league fees at the start of each session. Non-members that are subbing for another player will not have to pay for an additional league fee for the day they are subbing but will be responsible for paying for a day pass.
