Timing and dates

Singles champs

As for last year, I am once again ‘trialing scheduling men’s and women’s singles over a month with the idea that this flexibility may help as many of you enter as possible around Easter, vets tournaments and school holidays. First round can start as soon as draw is out (early in the week beginning 23 March) and I will be encouraging rounds to be completed in a timely manner. Finals will be played weekend of 25-26 April (likely 26th given mixed is scheduled for 25th).

Format: best of 3 tie breaker sets for the main event.

There will also be a plate event for first round losers.

The winner (or any of the semi-finalists) will also have the opportunity to represent the Club in Tennis Central’s Champ of the Champs event for club champs on 16 and 17 May

Men’s and Women’s doubles

Men’s and Women’s doubles will be held on Saturday 4 April (all day), with Sunday as the backup day (and finals day if lots of entries)

Format: best of 3 tie breaker sets. Sudden death on second deuce. Super tie breaker (to 10 points) if goes to third set. Final will be best of three full sets.

There will also be a plate event for first round losers.

Mixed doubles

Mixed doubles will be held on Anzac day, Saturday 25 April, all day, with Sunday as the backup day (and finals day if lots of entries)

There will also be a plate event for first round losers. Who knows may be I’ll even throw in a saucer if enough entries

Looking forward to seeing those entries flooding in ….as mentioned above please write you name up on lists at the club (with phone and email details) or email me on jennie.mcmurran1@gmail.com by Saturday 21 March.
