Fewer Matches?
Longer  Season?

Proposals to reduce match requirements and lengthen the season are discussed here.

2023 Season

FETA had 71 players in 2023, with 50 earning T-shirts. During the regular season, there were 170 singles matches and 82 doubles matches, totaling 668 player/matches. During the September tournament, Jay narrowly overcame Porter in the 3rd set to win the 4.0 singles tournament in a match that lasted over 2 1/2 hours. Paulius won 3.5, giving up only 4 games during the entire tournament. Not bad considering he just started playing tennis this year. Katherine did not lose a set during the tournament, winning 3.0 decisively. Top finishers for all the singles and doubles groups are listed on the "Tournament" tab.

The morning of the picnic was a bit crisp but became pleasant as the 34 in attendance filled the courts playing doubles. There were plenty of BBQ and pot-luck items for everyone. Doubles groups were still playing at 2 pm. 

Thanks to all the volunteers who make FETA work.

Change in Eligibility Statement for 2024


The 2023 statement was:

FETA is open to employees and retirees of the Federal government and Jefferson County government. Contract employees are eligible provided they work full time with a specific agency. Immediate family members including junior players 14 years and older may play as the doubles partner of an eligible player. Anyone registered eligible last season is eligible again this year.

The statement for 2024 is: 

FETA is open to Federal Government and Jefferson County employees and retirees, including contract employees provided they work full time with a specific agency. Immediate family members (including junior players 14 years and older) of a registered player may play as their doubles partner, and may play unrestricted singles and doubles after one season. Anyone registered in the past may register again this year.
