Flexible Schedule:  The great thing about the Flex League is it flexibility.  Each player is assign to play a different opponent each week.   The players contact each other and set a time and place to play.

All Skills Levels:  Players are divided into like skill level flights of four players for each flight.  After they play their round robin matches, another round is set up with most new players.  Winning players tend to move up, loosing players tend to move down.  This is designed to move players into flights that have similar skills levels.
Meet New Players:  As the season moves forward, the flights reassigned, not just for skill level but also to schedule matches with new people.  Flex league players can expect to play from 10 to 12 new players throughout the summer.  
Women & Men:  The league schedules men and women in the same flights and is based on skill level.  This gives women and men the change to expand the number of players they compete with and meet players across the gender barriers.  
Juniors to Adults:  The league was originally designed for Adults to meet and play.  However, we encourage Juniors to participate.  They are flighted according to their skill level.  Adults get the meet the younger generation of tennis players; while the tennis youth has the opportunity to learn from the adults.
Flex League Fee:  Flex League fee is $20 for the season.  We also ask you join the GMCTA as member.  Membership is $10 used to promote the game of tennis in the Greater Mankato Area.


Here's the format and rules:

  • For each round, players are divided into flights of 4 players based on past results, your self-evaluated skill level, and the league manager's knowledge of players' skill levels.
  • Players will be scheduled to play one match per week with each of the other players in the flight. (Schedule will be sent out prior to the beginning of each round.)
  • Players will contact each other to schedule their matches. (If matches are not played, or not recorded; they will be listed as DNP, Did Not Play.)
  • Matches will be 2 out of 3 tie break sets. If a third set is needed, players can mutually agree in advance of the third set to play a 10 point match tie break, otherwise it will be a regular tie break set.
  • The winner is to record the results of their match on a designated link.
  • Based on records, players will typically be moved up or down one flight for the next round. (This will allow players to reach the level of their most competitive play.)
  • New players entering the league will be placed by the league manager based on the current knowledge of skill level.
  • Matches should be played with three (3) fresh, new balls. Each player should bring a new, unopened can of balls. Spin a racquet to determine who supplies the balls.
  • If there are any disputes, ruling of the league manager will be final.
