Intercounty Team Playoffs
Davisville is proud to congratulate our A and C Teams for finishing first in their Intercounty Divisions. Teams that finish first or second in their divisions are entered into the year end tournament to play for the ICTA Championship at the Rexall Centre. This year, the finals at Rexall will take place on September 13 in a one day festival of finals. In order to get to the finals, teams will play a number of playdown finals over the coming weeks and a good number at home at Davisville. If you are able to come out and watch, the teams would appreciate your support. Come and cheer them on to success!
Your A Team edged out Winston Churchill in the last week of the season to finish first place in the Central Division. They will play up to 2 weeks of elimination tournament matches with the first one being at home on August 28.
Your B Team has one more match to play before entering as the first or second seed in the South East Division. Plagued by bad weather all season, the B team has worked diligently to both play and win their matches. After Tuesday's results, we should know what their path to the finals will look like.
Your C Team ran away with their division finishing with the most points in the entire Mixed League and more than 20 points more than the second place team in their division. They have 3 rounds of 'winner take all' elimination matches, with the first taking place on Thursday August 21 at home.

August Group Lessons Posted!
Everybody can get better with the proper instruction, and DTC members have the luxury of taking lessons from Alastair Millar, one of only ten Club Professional 3’s in the country. This certification is the highest designation of Tennis Canada’s Club Professional stream.
August Group Lesson Sessions are posted under the Learn tab above. Private and semi-private lessons are also available.
These sessions will be sold out fast, so don't delay.
Please note that any monies owing for lessons are payable directly to the pro, at the time of your first lesson. We accept cash, EMT or cheque payable to Alastair Millar.
Hey New Members! (and unrated old members)
DTC has a tag-up system for reserving court time. Each tag displays a member’s name and rating level which allows you to tag up with players of equal experience. Members without a rating level on their tag may have trouble reserving court time. Consequently, new members are strongly encouraged to get rated early in the season. A list of new member rating dates and times has been posted under the Play tab above, and will be posted in the Clubhouse. You can register for a session on Opening Day or with one of the court monitors.
The next NMR (new member rating) sessions will be held on August 2 at 10 am and 10:30 am and August 9 at 12 pm and 12:30 pm - make sure Alastair knows you're coming by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Important note - all Davisville members must be rated by the end of 2014 to be considered as a returning member. Also, unrated members will not be allowed to compete in Davisville tournaments. Re-rating sessions will be scheduled, usually for near the end of each month.
Want to get re-rated?
You've put in the time and practice and now think you're ready to move up. The next re-rating dates will be Saturday, August 30, 12 pm and 1 pm (players must be available for both times, scheduling will be determined by player levels)
Please email Alastair at email@example.com to book your time!
Past champion? Ensure your legacy!
Davisville's permanent trophies haven't been updated in a decade, so we've embarked on a major engraving project. However, we're missing the names of some of the winners. If you've contested tournaments in the past, check out the "Past Winners" list on the bottom right side of the Tournament Page.
