ACTC is a member of the Ontario Tennis Association (OTA), which oversees the Intercounty Leagues. Many members have found completive play a lot of fun and an opportunity to challenge themselves.
Intercounty teams play for approximately 14 weeks, from mid May until mid August. Half of the games are played away, thus some traveling is involved. Members of a team should be available to play for most of the matches. If you cannot commit to the whole season, but would like to participate, please do, as we always need subs throughout the season.
If Intercounty is allowed to proceed for the 2021 summer season, ACTC will send a communication to all active members to sign up and attend tryouts in the April timeframe. More details will follow pending guidance from the province of Ontario and OTA. Some of the teams ACTC has fielded in the past are below.
Ladies A and B Intercounty Day League
Ladies A play on Wednesday mornings, and have a team practice on Monday mornings. Ladies B play on Tuesday mornings and practice on TBA. Four lines play each week, requiring 8 players.
MIX B and C Intercounty Evining League
Mix B team plays on Tuesday evenings, and Mix C plays on Thursday evenings. Team practices for both teams are scheduled for Sunday morning. Structure of matches are still pending and to be determined by Human Rights mandate.
55 and Over Intercounty MIX Day League
This League plays on Thursday mornings and practices Friday mornings. The fixtures of the matches are as follows: two men doubles, one ladies double, and two mix doubles.
Selection committee is formed to evaluate and create a roster of players for each team. The Selection Committee may be comprised of:
We make every attempt to schedule rain out games on times that don't disrupt member access.
Rain out matches will be scheduled either on the weekend or every other Tuesday/Thursday evening. These matches are a priority and may bump members from open court 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.
