News and Announcements
Statement from the RRTA Board of Directors:
As a board, we have been closely monitoring the COVID19 developments and closures as the situation develops. USTA, USTA Texas and Capital Area Tennis Association (CATA) have suspended all league play, tournaments and other events until April 20th to ensure social distancing practices are carried out. While RRTA is not affiliated with USTA, many of our members are and the board often defers to their policies and guidelines when managing our own league play.
It is out of an abundance of caution that the board will suspend all league play until April 20th to be consistent with the policies of USTA, USTA Texas and CATA.
Yesterday, President Trump updated guidance to cancel all events (private and public) with 10+ people so we felt it was important to make this announcement as quickly as possible. See CDC Guidance for Events and Gatherings: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/large-events/index.html
This suspension also affects the registration period for our Annual Doubles Only Tournament scheduled for April 25-26 and we would rather postpone the tournament at this time than go through the registration process not knowing for sure if we will be able to host the tournament.
At this time there will be no refunds for the season, as we intend to treat this as we would a rain-out and hopefully finish the season at a later date.
Thank you for your understanding, we will continue to monitor the situation and will get back to league play as soon as we think it is safe for everyone to do so. Please stay safe and vigilant to contain the virus based on local, state and national health providers’ recommendations.
We hope to see everyone on the courts very soon!
All RRTA leagues will take our regularly scheduled Spring Break week OFF for all doubles leagues.
No doubles Leagues Mon., March 16 – Fri., Mar 20th.
Singles are still free to schedule matches on a match by match basis for each individual.
Thanks to Steve Cho for posting some photos to the Facebook RRTennis group (shared to facebook.com/rrtennis page) from the courts for Men’s Doubles last night. We’re all excited to see this progress!
There are just a few spots left. Please register today.
The first few weeks Wednesday and Thursday Mixed will be playing at 3 locations. Old Settlers (4 courts), WilCO (4 courts) and Taylor Tennis Courts at Murphy Park (2 – 4 courts). However, we’ll collapse back to OSP as soon as construction allows. The City of RRPaRD estimates the first of April.

Dear Round Rock Tennis Players,
The Spring 2020 season will run March 2 – May 22, 2020. Registration for all leagues will open online at www.rrtennis.com at 8:00 am, Saturday, February 15, 2020.
Limited court availability at Old Settlers does affect this season. Please read this entire email…….
As most of you know, 8 courts at Old Settlers are under repair with a potential completion date the end of March. When Banks A and B are complete they will then start rebuilding Bank C. Due to the current construction of the courts, and limited court availability and options, the board has decided to use courts in Taylor for the spring mixed leagues. Please keep this in mind when you sign up for the spring season. Once the construction is finished, which could be mid-season, we will resume using 8-10 courts at Old Settlers and not play in Taylor. So, potentially, this 3-location resolution is temporary, and could only be for the first 3-4 weeks if the construction schedule stays on track.
2020 Spring season court details are as follows:
Monday ladies – 4 courts at Old Settlers
Tuesday men’s – 4 courts at Old Settlers, 4 courts in Taylor
Wednesday mixed – 4 courts at Old Settlers, 4 courts at Wilco, 2 courts in Taylor
Thursday mixed – 4 courts at Old Settlers, 4 courts at Wilco, 4 courts in Taylor
Just like we rotate mixed courts between Old Settlers and Wilco in past seasons, Taylor (Murphy Park) will be added to the court rotation. You may be scheduled to play in Taylor every third week or more depending on your court placement.
Some things to remember:
• Look for the “Register Now” button on the left hand side of the home page www.rrtennis.com.
• If you log on before 8:00 am, you may need to refresh your browser until the button/link appears.
• It is also time to pay annual RRTA dues for 2020. Be sure to also add “Membership Dues” to your “shopping cart”.
• Mixed Doubles players MUST be registered as a TEAM with the cost of both players for that league bundled into one transaction.
• Please ensure when registering your partner that he/she pays yearly dues online through his/her own account. This is important because precedence will be given to a team with both members paid versus a team with partial membership dues paid. Sorry, that’s just how the prioritization for spots must be handled.
• If a league fills up, you will be asked to be put on the wait list. DO THIS. You will not need to pay until you are removed from the wait list and will be notified. The Ramrod for each league will confirm if they can include you or not.
• Annual dues can be paid at any time — not just during league registration events.
If you have any questions, please contact a board member or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are trying to inform everyone and are using multiple distribution lists. If you receive this email more than once, please just delete the duplicates.
We look forward to seeing you on the courts!
