What is Mixed Triples
It is a tennis game that uses a format of 3 on 3, with one player at the net and two at the baseline for each team. It’s fast-moving, and players rotate positions after every point.

In our tournament, there will be no traditional serving. The point starts with an underhand feed (drop hit or bounce hit). Players have one chance to get the serve in, and the serve can go anywhere as long as it lands within the court boundaries. The service feed is always from the deuce side baseline.

By using orange dot compressed balls (softer balls with 50% reduced bounce), all ability levels can play together in a fun, safe yet still challenging game. Participants will be assigned to triplet teams with the aim of balancing skill levels.

Recycling Tennis Balls
Did you know that it takes 400 years for a tennis ball to decompose at a landfill site?  In order to minimize the number of tennis balls generated by our club members going into the landfill site in Perth, the Club is starting its own recycling program.  Two green bins are mounted on the courts.  Thank you to the Town of Perth for its donation of the green bins.  The green bins have a tennis ball sized hole for depositing the balls and plastic Lannister's.  Steve Takach assisted with the retrofitting and installation of the green bins..
The balls will be shipped to
a recycling facility in Vermont. The balls are processed in a non-toxic manner, and are largely used to produce a natural rubber and geotextile felt used by equestrian arenas.  Some of the balls are also sold as dog balls.

COVID-19
If you are feeling unwell or have tested positive for COVID-19 and are within five days of the start of symptoms,  please do not go to the courts.  If you are scheduled for league play, please find a substitute.

About Perth Tay Tennis Club
The Perth Tay Tennis Club plays on the four hard-surface, lighted tennis courts of Perth's Conlon Farm Recreation Complex. The 53 acres site is located at 127 Smith Drive, at the south end of Perth off Scotch Line or Rogers Road, at the junction of Conlon and Smith Drive (see Map).

Perth Tay Tennis Club rents the courts for league play (see schedule at left). When not rented for tennis or pickleball leagues or by individuals the courts are open to public use on a first come, first served basis. Rules of use are posted. The club installs wind screens for better play. The lighting of all four courts automatically goes on before dark and off at 10 PM.

Members can apply to play in one or more leagues space permitting (the leagues are identified on the sidebar). There are leagues for men’s doubles, women’s doubles, mixed doubles, as well as a competitive mixed doubles. Members may need to try out for the competitive league to ensure that their skill level is appropriate.
 
League play typically starts in early May.  Each league has its own convenor who has the final say on participants.  The convenor will send a schedule prior to the start of the league showing when players will play and when they will have byes. If a member is scheduled to play on a day that the member is unavailable, the member is responsible to obtain a replacement from the members not scheduled to play that week. 
 
The convenor will determine the format and matchups each week. Play typically lasts two hours, and includes three sets.

See Membership for details of fees, how to rent the tennis courts for private play and other information.
