Adult Teams

Winston Churchill has a strong tradition of competitive teams. In 2016 we will field four mixed teams that will play in the InterCounty Tennis Association (ICTA).

InterCounty Tennis Association

Evening League – 7:00 pm start from May to Early July
Majors Division – Tuesday Nights
A Division – Thursday Nights
B Division – Tuesday Nights
C Division – Thursday Nights

For further information, including the league rules and schedules, please refer to the InterCounty Tennis Association website at www.intercountytennis.com.

Winston Churchill will hold adult team tryouts in April at the Mayfair West Tennis Club. Players selected for a team must be Winston Churchill members in good standing who have paid their club membership and team fees and are available for most league matches in their division. The 2016 team fees are $50.00 per player. Players who have not paid their club membership and team fees are deemed ineligible to play league matches until such fees are paid.

All players must attend team tryouts unless exempted by the Teams Director. Players may try out for more than one team. If a player cannot attend a specific tryout, then he/she is encouraged to attend another tryout date. Team members are selected according to their performance at team tryouts and their history of competitive play (i.e. league matches; Club, OTA or Tennis Canada tournaments). Players who are new Winston Churchill members must be in attendance at team tryouts unless exempted by the Teams Director. The tryout format and team selection process will be communicated to players at each tryout by Head Pro Kerry Mitchell and Teams Director Josh Birman.

The court fee for each tryout is $30.00, payable in person by cash at the tryout.

2016 Winston Churchill Team Tryouts – Mayfair West Tennis Club, 3855 Chesswood Drive
Saturday April 16 from 7:30-9:30pm for Majors, A and B
Sunday April 24 from 7:30-9:30pm for the C team

If you can’t come to a tryout designated for your level, then please come to another tryout date and the Teams Selection Committee will try to place you in a suitable rotation.

To be eligible to attend a try-out, please email Josh Birman at JBirman@masongroup.ca by Monday,
April 6th.

Team Tryouts – Important Information

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for each tryout, to allow the Teams Selection Committee to register you and place you on a court. Please plan to stay for the entire 2 hours, as if you leave earlier, it affects other tryout rotations.

All tryouts are $30 per person per tryout (payable by cash). Please come to the tryout with your tryout fee in hand.

You may try out for more than one team. You only need to attend one tryout for your team of interest, but you can attend multiple tryouts should you wish (at $30 per tryout).

Team Acceptance
Each player who is selected for a Winston Churchill team must confirm that he/she will join the roster no later than Friday, April 24th, 2016, or his/her spot will be offered to another interested player. Teams may only have players on the roster that meet the criteria set out by the appropriate league. Team captains may not add players to the roster after the tryouts without the permission of the Teams Director.

Team Practice
Details are pending, but each team will have one practice per week during the season. Practices will occur on Sundays in the afternoon, with specific times to be provided shortly.
