2016 CHANGES TO INTERCLUB

  • Friday Make-ups: We will not have any matches scheduled at any club on Fridays. If your match is rained out it is the responsibility of the two captains to notify the committee and to coordinate with their club to reschedule the match for Friday.
  • Naming of Divisions: The Interclub Reps voted last year to start with A1 and continue to number down through A7. If you played B1 last year then your level is now A6 and if you played the combined B1,B3,C1 then your level is now A7. Championship will stay the same. The dates of play changed for some levels mainly to free up Friday for makeup matche
  • Updated interclub league rules. 
 
Registration Fees
  • Players pay their GKTA dues and Interclub League Fee on line at WWW.GKTA.USTA.COM This is a two step process.  You must pay both GKTA dues ($16) and Interclub League Fee ($13). Failure to pay will result in default of matches played. USTA league fees have nothing to do with GKTA Interclub!  ?However, if you played USTA in the spring you should have already paid for GKTA dues.
  • The interclub league fee includes the cost of balls, the Topdogtennis fee, and a charge for paying league fees on line.
