2017 Bahamas IC Doubles Week INFORMATION SHEET 8-13 January 2017
A) Matches are at the Bahamas BLTA National Tennis Centre (9 hard courts) located behind the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium at the Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre (about 10 - 12 minutes from Breezes). Tel 323-3933/4. Daily results and photos will be on this website.
B) We plan to do some pick-ups at Breezes by local IC members & friends around 9am or just after each morning. If necessary, or coming later, please take a taxi. It is a short ride and the large taxis outside Breezes can take about 6 people. We plan to do the same after matches finish so those at Breezes can be back for lunch. Those not at Breezes should get to the NTC independently but please plan to come & return via Breezes to help with pick-ups.
C) Matches are planned to start at 9:30am with the two men’s doubles and the ladies doubles on three courts for each inter-country match. This will be followed by both mixed doubles together. Matches are ATP Doubles scoring (No Ad and 10-point tie break for third set). Matches should be completed by lunchtime.
D) Traditional “All white” IC clothing is not essential but welcome.
E) Sailing trips with Mike Keating will be dependent on weather and other conditions. Mike’s phone contact is 422-2268. Probable maximum of 6 people at a time.
F) Golf with Normand Carpentier at the Ocean Club golf course on Paradise Island needs to be pre-arranged so he can check tee times and his availability. If you need clubs, they can be hired (quite expensive) or if you let Normand know we can probably borrow some for you. Normand’s phone contact is 363-3818.
G) If any players would like a Bahamas IC quick dry tennis shirt we have a few extra available. The cost is $30. Please ask Kit or Lesley Spencer.
