Columbus Platform Tennis League Information

The league is now starting its sixth year. A new approach is going to be used this year. There will be 4.0 and 3.0 leagues this year. The 4.0 League remains much the same as last year, but it is expected to be slightly stronger as players continue to migrate from the old Flight A league. The 3.0 League is last year's Flight C group. There will be detailed player information kept for both leagues.

The 3.0 players are in the 2.5 to 3.5 range. Rate yourself, but also rate a friend who is better than you and a player who is worse than you to gain a better understanding of what you need to do to improve.
