Interclub Play

Interclub Team Competition

The best way to improve your game is to play against others.  Interclub competition offers motivated players the opportunity to further develop their games by participating in team play competition against the best players at their level in the tri-state area.  Camargo offers a free rating clinic for any player interested in joining an interclub team.

General Information

This team format consists of 8 to 12 members who compete weekly as a team in either doubles or singles matches against other tennis clubs in the greater Cincinnati area.  Players participate in weekly team practices on a specific day and time using two courts and one or two teaching pros.

The League begins in late August and runs through May with matches played Monday through Friday for weekday teams and Saturday and Sunday mornings or afternoons for women’s career and men’s teams.  Teams within a specific league are organized into divisions, and team standings are maintained by the Greater Cincinnati Indoor Tennis Association (G.C.I.T.A.).  The top teams advance to City Playoffs.

The Winter, 2017 session begins Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Partners

The teaching staff at Camargo Racquet Club believes that in most cases, players who compete with the same partner form more successful teams.  Therefore, we would prefer that you find a permanent partner to play with for the season.  If you do not have a partner, we will work to find you a partner for the Interclub season.

Captains

Each team will have a Captain to assist the Pros whenever needed.  Captain’s duties typically consist of confirming player availability, confirming away matches with host clubs, and maintaining score sheets for the team’s weekly matches.  Captains are determined by a team vote at the conclusion of the first team practice.  If you are interested in serving as a Team Captain, please notify Chris Thatcher.
