Aloha Tennis Players!!
Hope all of you have been well during these very uncertain times.  Hawaii County is emerging slowly and the Mayor's emergency rule no. 9, released on 6/29, allows league tennis to begin after 7/20/20.  
We would like to start the Adult 55 on 8/1 with much caution and adherence to USTA/HPI Section safety recommendations.  If all goes well we can proceed with the rest of the revised schedule below.  Due to the compressed time frame and limited court availability it was necessary to reduce the number of leagues.  The Adult 18 format was also reduced to one singles line but to provide more opportunity for play, the Ekolu format was increased with an extra mixed doubles line.  Please note, there will not be any sectional or national competitions in 2020 so registration fees will be adjusted.

Adult 55 & Over league.  We ask all captains who earlier registered a 55 & Over team to poll your team members as soon as possible to see if your team will participate.  Please contact Sheri Nishida (989-6235/sheri-k@hawaiiantel.net) or Lori Nekoba (938-6616/lnekoba@aol.com) to let them know.  This will help them determine the best format for the captain/scheduling meeting.  If you are interested in playing, but do not have a team, feel free to contact either of them.
If we all work together to practice safety precautions for ourselves and others, we can successfully keep league tennis going!
P.S. Good news!  The two older Hoolulu tennis courts are scheduled to be resurfaced in August.
