Re A-Grade Men’s Singles, we have a record 16 person entry.  With Scottie’s help, entries have been graded into two flights with the winner/runner up of each flight going into final playoff rounds.  We will play either 3 or 4 rounds (weather dependent) of 8-games no add scoring to decide. the winners of each flight. Thereafter, the playoff rounds will be one (1) tiebreaker set to decide the event winner.

Good luck to all competitors.

Championships Draws & Times

This year, we are using a dedicated page on our web site to publish our draws, and any revisions to draws, results and playing times as the championships progress.

Play is scheduled to start 11:30a Saturday October 14 and continue through the following weekend October 21/22.

We had insufficient entries for the A Women’s Singles (combined into the Open Women’s Singles) and the Super Seniors Men’s Doubles (postponed until the Combined Events in February 2019).

Please note match times are subject to change depending on results and, of course, the weather!

Match play format is shown on each draw sheet.  For Open events, matches consist of two (2) tiebreaker sets with a super 10-point tiebreaker third set up to, and including, quarter finals. Thereafter, three tiebreaker sets with new balls provided for the third set.

It goes without saying that we expect everyone to uphold our traditions of being courteous to  fellow club members and to exhibit best behaviour during the championships.  Suffice to say, bad behaviour will NOT be rewarded by the referee under the Tennis Australia playing code of conduct — first infraction: warning, second infraction: loss of point, third: loss of game……..loss of match.

All draws, playing and court times have been posted. Any revisions will be posted on the web site so be sure to check back frequently.
