18-39 Co-ed, Social Mix & Match Among New Fall League Offerings
We have some NEW exciting offerings planned for this fall in Indian River, Martin and St. Lucie counties.
We have an Adult 18-39 co-ed program that will play on Thursday nights with one position of men’s doubles, one position of ladies’ doubles and one position of mixed doubles. A Fall social warm-up league is being offered for the Adult 40 & Over ladies on Friday mornings to get ready for their local county league play. Last, but not least, we have a Social Mix & Match league that will play on Wednesday nights with three positions of mixed doubles.
These new offerings should compliment the traditional Fall league offering of Combo 18 & Over play. There’s tennis for everyone!
Fall 2018 leagues are forming teams now. Please visit www.IRMSLtennis.net to see the offerings in their entirety and to submit your team commitment form.
