    Questions And Answers

    All About YFCTA

    When do you offer open play tennis?

    YFCTA "free" Open Play tennis occurs Tuesday and Thursday evenings from approx. 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. during the months of April through October at Kissel and/or Franklin Park Courts, barring high school team use.  Saturdays 9:00 (or 10:00) am to Noon is also available for Open Play. Occasionally our "League" sessions occur at the same times as "Open Play" so if that happens you are free to do either because drop ins are always welcome at League sessions though advanced signup for league assures you court placement priority.

    When did YFCTA become a group?

    YFCTA became an official Community Tennis Association with the USTA in September of 2011.  Its founding members had been actively playing and organizing tennis events independently for 6 years following their departure from a previous tennis group called YCTA.  Our new "YFCTA" began with about 20 people and has grown to 100+ members today.

    What is the difference between Open Play and League Play?

    YFCTA "League" Sessions are pre-arranged organized Doubles matches during a 6 week period each season.  Matches are based on number of wins each week and your rating goes up or down accordingly.  There is NO requirement to attend each week to participate in this League however the more you play the better your rating.  During League sessions you can enjoy competing with players of similar ability levels and it is also more competitive since scores are recorded and then reported to our League Director.  Ball fees of $1 per session are appreciated during League sessions. See more details on our "League" page.   YFCTA "Open Play" on the other hand, is random matches (doubles or singles) played by any players who happen to show up on those days.  Players organize themselves and its just for fun, not for ratings or score keeping and its totally free.
