TEN CAP NEWS:   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 ( store the site in your browser's "favorites/bookmarks").  

 Welcome to the 2018-2019 EVSTL season 

. 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 34-4  One can now play up or down a level.  At this holiday break, we can choose to go down to another team if our Ten Cap is in that range. You need to be 3 points into the higher level to go up now(only 1 point at the end of season). If someone has to withdraw from a match, nothing will be recorded unless one set has been completed. .

   For all the players who have not accepted the invitation to join the VO network, do so as soon as you read this..go to evstl.tencapsports.com, then sign in with the email and password that you set last year, then look up..way way up..at the very top right of the page where you will see your name. There will be a little box next to the help box, click on that box and click accept invitation..then click "process the invitation". Then you're in!   

For everyone..when you sign in, you will see your tencap numbers and photo.

  • If you have forgotten your password, please use the "Forgot Your Password" feature on the Log In page and Tencap will email it to the email address on file (most often your email address is your Log In ID).
  • If the email address in Tencap is incorrect: Contact: Garth Durrell gdurrell@sympatico.ca    480-324-6207 EVSTL Coordinator.
  • Log into your account and click the "edit profile" and right beside that photo"Contact Information" and change it..especially phone numbers..  
    • If you can't log into your account because the system will only send your password to an incorrect email address then contact your club Tencap coordinator  with the correct email address.  She will get it corrected for you through the EVSTL Network Administrator.
  • 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.

Do we need to send a "thinking of you"  card? Please let the Sunshine Person know.... see Officer list. 

  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 phone numbers and 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.
