Sports Science Tip
"Fact vs. Fiction on Water Loss and Tennis"
Did you know that tennis players lose between one and two and half liters of water during each hour of competitive singles? In fact, at the extreme, players have been observed to lose three and a half liters per hour in very hot conditions.
What does this lost sweat contain? It contains a fair amount of sodium and chloride.
However, there is usually very little potassium in sweat contrary to what most people have heard. And, as far as the cause of muscle cramps is concerned, studies are now confirming that this is a result of high sodium loss rather than potassium loss. Up to three to ten times as much sodium as compared to potassium can be lost during play.
Registration is NOW OPEN!
Father's Day Weekend, see you on the courts!
You do not need to be a USTA member to play in this tournament, you just need to follow the instructions to register for Non-USTA members.

If you picked up a summer league schedule from the Guild on Thursday or Friday - THROW IT OUT!!! I had to redo the schedule (sorry).
Please check your email for the latest roster and schedule.
Please check your contact information on the roster name, email and phone numbers - any corrections please let me know ASAP and I will send them out as well as change them online.
If you see (RS) after a name on the schedule, please check with the opponents to see if they have gotten a sub for the evening, as this notation means that one of the players on that team had a conflict that day.
Please review the rules on this website as well as the notes printed on the first page of the league schedule.
You NEED to call your OPPONENT for the first two weeks of matches please!
If you are the first person/team listed you are responsible for providing a NEW CAN of tennis balls.
Please report your scores after each match to the following email address ONLY: email@example.com
A few reminders about league/tennis etiquette rules of play...
This is a FUN recreational league, that while it is competitive, it is also NOT a knock down drag out weekly event.
DO NOT cross through tennis courts while the ball is in PLAY, wait til the point is over.
When in doubt about a ball it is IN.
(There was an old rhyme - when in doubt call it out...just doesn't FLY around here.
The phrase "You Sure About That" - I don't want to here it.
As a USTA Tennis official - I will repeat what I tell the kids before any USTA Event. (If a ball is 99% out, it is still 100% IN). If you or your teammate likes to paint the lines, then perhaps you should use this time to work on your game and make certain your shots are clearly at least inside any line by at least a foot.
We all want to play, have a good time, and meet new people - some of us even enjoy going out together after tennis to a local watering hole for a snack & drinks.
Have a great summer season, and I will see you on the courts!
