It’s that time of year. The time for pulling together your team for next year. The RCRL board will meet on June 17th to set the divisions, but we need your letters of intent before then. Please get those to your directors as soon as you can. They will need time to organize everything before our meeting, so the earlier you can send them in, the better.
If you or your team plan to move to a different division, please send your LOI to the director of the division in which you wish to play. She will notify the previous director if it’s needed. Also, any LOI that is submitted on-line will be sent to the proper director by the Data Administrator. The DA will send you a confirmation of receipt within 24 hours of submission.
If you need help, contact your current director. She will be a great resource if you need her. The contact list is under the DIRECTORY tab above.

Captains, remember you can request to add players to your roster at the October, November, February and March board meetings, assuming your roster is not already full. Just click on the FORMS tab above, and open the Mid-Year Roster form. Your division director must receive the request no later than 24 hours before our meeting. The board meets on the second Monday of each month. Hopefully, this rules change will help prevent forfeits.

Please check for the schedules under the appropriate division tab above. The schedules have been sent to Leagues for Fun and should be available shortly.
Please remember that rosters close MIDNIGHT SEVEN (7) DAYS BEFORE THE FIRST MATCH for your division. Don’t get caught rostering too late!!!

Attention RCRL Captains!
If you have players who (a) do not have 5 matches of history in TopDog or (b) do not have a current USTA rating, they MUST be rated by a pro OTHER THAN THEIR TEAM PRO before they can play matches this year. RCRL has set up two clinics in order to facilitate this process.
PLAYERS MUST CALL THE CLUBS TO REGISTER FOR THESE CLINICS.
- Friday, August 3 at LIRC from 10:00-11:00
- Tuesday August 7 at Springhurst from 9:30-10:30
Players will be charged $10.00 to attend a clinic. If your player cannot make any of these clinics, they must arrange to have a pro other than their own rate them, and they will be charged the club’s/pro’s hourly rate (or portion thereof).
Here are the pros we are using for the verification clinics:
- Rob Maxwell, Advantage Tennis and Fitness, 817-7185
- Steve Rueff, Louisville Indoor Racquet Club, 426-2454
- Ylia Jelali, The Tennis Club at Springhurst, 412-2950 ext 216
- Jose Chipe, Blairwood Tennis, Swim and Fitness, 426-8820
If you have questions, please contact your division director.

UPDATE: Top Dog is still having technical difficulties. We cannot seem to get an answer as to when they believe the problem will be fixed. Please rest assured that we will not prevent any teams from playing due to not having 11 players rostered by July 1 or July 6th. We will have a firm roster date, but not until we have a better answer from Top Dog. Please check back frequently to look for status updates. - C Rose
Please forgive our technical difficulties. Top Dog Sports, who handles our registrations, is having on-line problems with his website right now. Several players have notified us that they have been unable to register even after several attempts. We will post on-line and notify your directors as soon as we have the problem fixed. If it takes much longer, we will extend the 11-player, July 1 roster deadline. Thank you for your patience.

Every team which intends to compete in any division of RCRL next season must submit a Letter of Intent NO LATER THAN JUNE 15th. You may either submit the form through this website under the “FORMS” tab, or you may print out a .pdf copy of the form and mail it in. Remember, the Letter of Intent must be submitted either electronically or by mail to the CURRENT DIRECTOR of the DIVISION IN WHICH YOU INTEND TO COMPETE. (As a courtesy, captains should also notify the director of their current division if they are planning to change divisions.)
The Board of Directors will meet AFTER June 15th to place teams in divisions. Those decisions are based not only on merit, but also taking into consideration the number of teams in each division, placing emphasis on the viability of every division in the league. If you have any questions, please contact your (or any) division director.

The annual Spring Luncheon has been set for May 10th at Churchill Downs. There are still several tickets left, so grab your team and come on out for a great day of fun, food and great prizes. The reservation form is available under the FORMS tab above. Just print it, fill it out and send one check to the address on the form. We always have a great day at the Downs recognizing the winners and runners-up of each division, so don’t miss it this year. It won’t be the same without you.

The Tennis Club at Springhurst was damaged today by the severe weather. The club is officially closed tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday, January 18 and 19, so all matches scheduled for Springhurst will be cancelled. We will treat under Rule V. H. 2. Please note that the captains involved have 14 days to agree on a date to play the rescheduled match. We would prefer that the rescheduled matches be completed by the end of April, so that we can know the results by the end of season luncheon on May 10. However, if the end of April is not possible, please try to finish in the first week of May (not necessarily our favorite week to try to schedule matches, you know). Please demonstrate the same spirit of courtesy and cooperation that you have all shown each other this year as you try to work out the arrangements. Captains must notify their directors of the rescheduled match date.
We will update you as soon as we know about when the club can reopen for match play.
