SIGNUP--Work for Taco Salad Fund Raiser.  The times, duties, and space for you name is on the Tennis bulletinboard at the Sports-Plex.  It is thru the fund raiser contributions to the Social Club that we have tables, unbrellas, bleachers, court washing equipments, etc.  I have found that working together at fund raisers is how I best get to know the other VOers.  If you are relatively new to Venture Out, join the spirit.  It's part of the way of life in this resort. 

lottery draw for assigned courts "group" play for a month GENERALLY occurs on the the last/first weekend of the month.  It appears there will NOT be a draw for December groups...the same draws as November will remain the arrangement, however, since in December many VO residents travel for the holiday you will find that some of the draw groups won't show for their courts.  Play it by ear and come down and you may find an empty court. There will be a phone list by red veranda phone so you can contact others to make a foursome+. 

SPORT-PLEX COURTS AVAILABLE FOR PRACTICE:  ..1).Go to the "Court Schedule" web page. Click on "Play" in the menu to the left on this page.   We can only play where you see the word “Group” or in our assigned periods for our level.
2) In addition, courts will be  available during the league morning competitions in the boxes that appear on the south side of the bulletin board.  If signed group is not on the court in first five minutes of signed for time, then they loose that court to players waiting.  The league competition teams have priority in all cases on those mornings. 
3) In additon, play is available on Sundays in 90 minute court intervals.  Reserve the time period on the Sunday Play sheet posted on the north side of the Tennis Sports-Plex bulletin board.  Verify the date on that sheet.

Residents of VO do not need to be a club member to play tennis on the tennis courts near the entrance to the VO front gate. Courts 7 & 8 south of the laundry room are non-reservable courts. They are used by anyone residing in Venture Out.  For sign-up method, first come basis see "Open Play" under PLAY in the menu item on the left side of this screen. In the shed next to court are loaner rackets and a book where groups of over four playes can find a "round robin" play book.  Each player selects a number for him/her self and checks the binder for the round number and who their partner's number is.  Partners serve once each before changing end of court with other two players. 

 "Fun Tennis Saturdays" on courts in the NE corner are also open to anyone living in VO. Check the "Calendar of Events" for dates of play. Sign up for "Fun Tennis"  is generallly available by Wednesday on the bulletin board in the far NE corner of park (Sports-Plex).

East Valley League is adopting the Ten Cap Dynamic Rating System.    Once a member has established his/her user name and password, he/she may access the Ten Cap web page by clicking the link on the left side of this page (or store the site in your browser's "favorites/bookmarks").  

. If your tencap confidence level is 80% or over(as per EVSTL bylaws) you will be placed at the level where your tencap falls: 2.0 level is 62-69, 2.5 level is 55-61, 3.0 level is 48-54, 3.5 level is 41-47, and 4.0 level is 34-40.
Next season most players will be within the range of their level, making it much easier for captains to match up partners and opponents. The exceptions are 2.0 and 4.0 levels, and there is a tencap committee looking at/ for solutions.
We are working on putting together a team who will be available to assess people new to VO (but not new to tennis) so that they will have an appropriate starting tencap.

  • If the email address in Tencap is incorrect:
    • Log into your account and use the "edit profile" and "Contact Information" and change it.

  • If you already have a Tencap account, DO NOT TRY TO SET UP ANOTHER ACCOUNT.  If you set up another account, that will tie up your email address and you will not be able to use that email address on your EVSTL account.  It is a case of causing DOUBLE TROUBLE.

  A member of tennis club reported she could not get the member list on the web site to scroll down on her I-Pad. After some experimenting I found the following solution.  Once you pull up the MEMBERS  list it will only display “sheet 1”.    Go up to top of the screen and click on REFRESH….THE LITTLE CIRCLE WITH A BACKWARDS ARROW.  Once it refreshes the web page you will be  able to scroll down to all the names on list and scroll to the side for the column with e-mail addresses.   For those with I-Phones you will need to turn the phone vertical to display the list.    I do not know if those with Android phones or other manufactures tablets are experiencing any difficulty in viewing the members list.  If you have problems please contact me tcme92a@msn.com.

Do we need to send a "thinking of you"  card? Sunshine Person: Call Dickylee Debarre to send a card from the club when
