Team Selection Policy & Process

ACTC sponsors teams in our Inter-County leagues. The ACTC Board aspires to balance fielding competitive teams with fun and social play. The Inter-County leagues are meant to be a social league and a competitive league. With this in mind, the current ACTC Board created the following team selection system.

A selection committee is formed to evaluate and create a roster of players for each team. The Selection Committee is comprised of:

  1. Each captain from the previous year;
  2. A professional tennis instructor/coach;
  3. A delegated ACTC Board member (Play Director) who oversees the Selection Committee and participates in the selection process. When differences of opinion occur, he/she can mediate the situation. 

This is a 3 person selection process. The team roster is to be finalized using a consensus model with each person contributing from their perspective. 

Our selection system gives new members and developing players opportunities to advance in their competition levels and ensures that the social components (relationships, history etc.) of the selection criteria are considered.  

Selection Criteria:

  • Evaluation on Inter-County Try Out Days (strokes, consistency, strategy, team play)
  • Past Year Won - Loss Record
  • Assessment of overall play aptitude & attitude i.e. confidence, willing to learn, able to reflect and work on improvements to their game; adding to social harmony of team and club.
  • Players who choose not to try out, expecting to be automatically placed on a team, risk missing out on a place on the roster especially if the competition for a position is close.
  • All players must be ACTC members in good standing prior to tryouts and throughout the season.

Captain Selection:

The ACTC Board, recognizing the contributions of captains for their energy and skill in coordinating and managing their team each year, want their input into the selection process. 

Once the team rosters have being created, the Captains may stand for election as captain for another year. If no other player wishes to take on the captain role, the past year captain is acclaimed. A majority vote is held by the team if there is more than one captain interested in managing the team.

Inter-County Rain-out policy & schedule changes

We do make every attempt to schedule these rain out games on times that don't disrupt member access. 

Rain out matches will be scheduled on the weekend and every other Thursday evening. These matches are a priority and may bump members from open court informal play. 

If Tuesday or Thursday night games are scheduled to play away, but at the last minute learns that the away tennis club has unplayable courts, they can (may) choose to play their match at ACTC. Members must vacate the courts to let the Inter County teams complete their matches.   

Please refer to this page for announcements about scheduled rain out matches.
