Nantucket Mixed Invitational
Welcome once again to
the long-standing Nantucket Mixed Invitational Tournament! We hope
that our old friends, as well as new players, will be able to come.
Registration forms are available on the APTA website at www.platformtennis.org.
Please consider coming to the island for this terrific weekend –
this tournament is in danger of going away forever if we continue
to see declining participation!!
Each team is guaranteed
four rounds of play, weather permitting. The team fee of $150 includes
continental breakfast and lunch at the courts on Saturday and Sunday,
and beer/wine/cheese on Saturday evening at the hut. NOTE: Because
Saturday lunch is catered, please be sure to buy special tickets
(see registration form) if you are bringing a non-playing spouse
Because it can be difficult
to get to the Island due to fog/uncertain weather, every player
must be on-Island by Friday night to be eligible to play on Saturday.
Failure by a team to show up for a scheduled match will result in
that team being disqualified from the tournament (and we all know
what that does to the entire draw!). In addition, players should
be prepared to stay until at least mid-afternoon on Sunday as final
matches for all flights will be held throughout the day.
Registration forms and
entry fees are due no later than Wednesday, November 5th. This applies
to on-Island teams as well as our visiting players! If we have not
received your form and money by 11/5, you will not be included in
On Friday evening, all
three courts will be reserved for informal play. You may register
between 6-8 PM - please make every effort to come by so we can deliver
any last minute changes/start times/etc. For those of you who are
coming for the first time, NPTA is located about a mile outside
of town at 1Polpis Road (dirt driveway immediately after the Islander
Liquor Store). You will need a rental car, taxi or a ride from one
of the local members to get to the courts. The telephone number
in the hut is 508-228-5406. For questions about the draw/starting
times, please contact Margaretta Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org.
