2016 Men’s and Women’s Teams

Who may join Eastman’s teams?

ECA Members in good standing and players with Summer Memberships may participate on Eastman’s teams.

 

 

How many teams does the ECTA sponsor?

In 2019, Eastman will sponsor up to five teams: one Men’s A team, two Men’s B teams, and two Women’s B teams.

 

 

How much commitment is involved in playing on an Eastman team?

The summer season generally runs from early June until mid August. Home and away matches are played one evening each week at 6 PM–Tuesdays for the Men’s teams, and Wednesdays for the Women’s. Additionally, regularly scheduled practices are held late afternoons or evenings.

 

How do I join a team?

It’s as simple as contacting one of the team captains for the level you are interested in playing:

Men’s A:        Jeff Adie, (603)-568-0609, jeffadie@gmail.com

Men’s B:        Chris Arnold, (603)-477-6422, arnold_nh@comcast.net

Women’s B: Beth Truax, (716)-308- 7886, Truax.e@gmail.com 

Heather Klein, (203)-216-1442, hpat222@yahoo.com

Kathleen Curwen, (603)-498-5738, kcurwen@exeter.edu

Sara Lang: (603)-359-7627, saralang1234@gmail.com

 

How do I know which team to join?

Participation on a specific team is dependent upon a player’s skill as assessed by the NTRP guidelines used by the United States Tennis Association (USTA). Players who are USTA members, or have been within the past three years, have computer-genrated ratings from the USTA. Players not familiar with USTA play, may click here for guidelines and videos explaining the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP). Still not sure? Contact any team captain listed above.

 

Is there a cost to participate? 

Eastman’s Universal Amenity fee covers use of the courts for all Members in good standing. Non-ECA members who have purchased a Summer Membership may also participate on an Eastman-sponsored team. There is also a $30 registration fee payable to the Eastman Community Association (ECA) and a $23 charge to register on Tennispoint.com . Players may be asked to contribute a small amount for refreshments and an end-of-the-season party, payable to ECTA, the teams’ organization.*

What about rules?

The teams follow the rules established by the leagues. In Eastman, players take “tennis etiquette” and good sportsmanship seriously. For Eastman’s Tennis Code of Conduct, click here.
