Indoor Tennis – Captains’ Responsibilities

How to Book a Seasonal Court for EXISTING Teams

A captain contacts the members of the team to confirm a seasonal court with a day and time. Each group from the prior year has the opportunity to keep the same day, time and court. The captain emails John Renz with the decision of the team.

After John gets the final dates from the college as to what dates are not available, John will send a spreadsheet to each captain who is then responsible to fill in all the information requested on it: start date, dates omitted by the group, total number of sessions, total cost for the season, names of each team member, and cost for each team member.

The captain returns the completed spreadsheet to John by email for his review. (Yes, people do make errors… John included!)

Once the spreadsheet is approved, the captain communicates with the group the total cost for the season and the cost for each team member.  Each team member is to mail the captain a check made out to GETA for their individual cost.

Once the captain has collected all the checks from their members, the captains will put the checks in an envelope and mail them to:
PO Box 147
Big Flats, NY 14814

When the captain mails in their payment, the captain will send John Renz an email that reads “the check is in the mail” so John can inform GETA’s bookkeeper.

The captain informs each member to pay the seasonal indoor membership fee of $40 and the GETA membership fee which also entitles the player to participate in the GETA summer doubles league and the GETA summer singles ladder. Both fees can be paid online or a check can be mailed to the GETA address above.

How to Book a Seasonal Court for NEW Teams

Review the General Info page and Captains’ Courts page on the web site under Indoor Tennis.

Based on your review, email John Renz and state the day of the week and the time you are interested in playing, singles or doubles, how many courts, and the length of time (typically 1.5 hours but can be more or less in half-hour increments). Include your phone number.

Once John approves your request, he will send you a spreadsheet and you will then complete steps 2 – 6 listed above.
