Useful Information:

Draw – once published, you can view it here

Balls – please bring your own, apart from Semis & Final matches where they will be provided

Format – 3 sets with 7-point tie break (we suggest sudden death deuce on the second deuce and/or a competition tie break at one set all if a long match).

Can’t play the next round – Circumstances change, if you know you can’t play the next round, get to match point and then concede the match, so your opponent gets the chance to play on.

Coinan the Destroyer returns – if both sides have made a strong attempt to play their match without any luck or didn’t enter their results by midnight on the Play By Date, then it will be decided by the flip of a coin.

Contact List – you can find all members (please contact us for juniors details) on the contact list here

Plate Tournament – If you lose in your first round and if you have elected to go in the Plate match, you’ll find the draw here. (once published)

Pairs – Please sign up as a pair. If you are looking, let us know and we’ll try and match you with someone else who is looking.

Scoring –  The server should call the scores at each point to avoid confusion over long games.

Line calls –  Call your side of the court. Give your opponent the benefit of doubt; IF IN ANY DOUBT, IT’S IN.

Warm Up: Do it like the pros and keep it under five minutes.
