NOTE: B team City Championship is Monday night!

Wednesday night - new options for Fall!


The MVDO is bringing back the Wednesday night ABC league. Each team will consist of A, B and C players - construct your roster however you like but you must stay under the cap for each set of games and you can never play more than 2 'A' players in any set of games. Team game will have an 800 ratings cap. The two doubles Spanish games will have a 500 cap (for each doubles). The 501 and Cricket doubles will each have a 450 cap. The singles games will have the following caps - 300, 225, 175, 125. Also, all teams will play at the same bar each week so the league will be limited to 6 teams. So if you want to play get your teams in right away as it will be a first come first served order. (However, if an additional 4 - 6 teams register we will have a second division.) And finally for the "City" playoffs, the team that wins the divisional playoffs will go into the playoffs as 'B' team, however they must follow their division rules of never going over the caps in any set of games. There opponents will not be under those cap limits, but they will.

Also we will be offering singles leagues on Wednesday nights. These will follow the same format that we did in the past for singles money leagues on Thursday nights, However, these will not be money leagues. These will be $20 to play (this is not your league dues, this is a fee specifically for singles). If you do not play league any other night then in addition to $20 for singles then you will owe $20 for MVDO dues. If you play another night then you will only owe $20 for singles league and your MVDO dues will be paid through that team. The $20 fee per player will go towards trophy or plaque for regular season and or playoff winner. TBD still.

There are 4 levels of singles - format and levels listed in League Formats - depending on registration levels may be combined.
