2023 Swan Hill Carnival | Tennis Seniors

We are calling for entries to play for NSW at the National Teams Carnival in Swan Hill, Victoria from 8-13 January, 2023. More than 80 grass courts in one place beckon players with courts just as good as those we experienced in Busselton, 2020.
You will find the entry form on our website at the end of the 2022 NRT events.

The Carnival is contested each year by all the states, plus there are usually a few other teams from New Zealand, Japan and sometimes other countries who wish to enter.

It commences on the Sunday evening with an Official Opening Ceremony and Welcoming Function. Attendance at this is optional as the tennis starts on Monday morning.

The Teams’ week consists of friendly rivalry and is a really good chance to get to know players from our own state as well as the other players who participate. Each state has a “State Dinner” on the Tuesday night, with both ‘old’ and ‘new’ representatives joining in a spirit of fun and camaraderie, sometimes they are on the dance floor until almost midnight – then have to get to tennis by 8am the next morning! TSNSW subsidise this dinner so its great value.
Teams of between four and eight players can be organised by yourselves or you can enter individually or as part of a team and our state Selectors will endeavour to complete your team.

You compete in up to two time slots per day. Each division has to play at either 8am and 1.20pm or 10.40am and 4.00pm, with each match lasting up to two and a half hours. All play is doubles and you start with two pairs playing two sets on adjoining courts. When those first two rubbers are completed you play two more sets on each court. If you use the same four players you must change pairs. You can introduce two new players if you have a team of 6-8 but only 6 can play in each match. Play ceases when the bell rings at the end of the two and a half hour session. Age groups are defined in 5 or 10 year increments depending upon the number of entries for Men and Women. Players can sometimes play eight sets in one day with a team of 4, but with larger teams, they get to have a rest. Play continues from Monday to Thursday in that format and there are semis or finals played on the Friday. You normally get a session or two, being a morning or an afternoon, off during the week

Averages are kept for each state’s matches throughout the week, and the winning state is the one with the highest average. Each night there is a dinner function arranged by the Swan Hill Tennis Club and the week culminates with a Presentation Dinner Dance on the Friday night. Attendance at all social functions is optional but our subsidised State Dinner and the Friday night Dinner Dance finale are highly recommended. If you stay on for the Individual Championships they don’t start till Sunday or Monday so Saturday can be a well earned rest!

Sadly, Noel Fraser, the President of TSNSW from 2002 to 2008 passed away recently, on September 14. Noel had been suffering from Prostate Cancer for several years and unfortunately the cancer had spread throughout his body. He had been hospitalised in the Muswellbrook Calvary Retirement Village for some time and passed away with Val Angel his long time partner at his side. Some members would know Noel from the tournament in Muswellbrook which he ran in conjunction with Val, and in his healthier years was a regular at most of the country tournaments and captained a team at the Aust teams event every year. His funeral is at St Marks Church, Aberdeen at 2pm this Wednesday

2022 Tournament Calendar

Our complete list of 36 tournaments is now listed on our website Check it out.


The Tennis NSW Board has updated the guidelines for participation in the sport by removing the requirement for mandatory COVID-19 vaccination from Tuesday 1 February 2022.

The change now brings participation in tennis in NSW into line with the NSW State Government position which currently states:

Anyone can now participate in sport and exercise. People are no longer required to be fully vaccinated or carry vaccination evidence. Face masks are required indoors when not participating in exercise. Density limits no longer apply. COVID Safety Plans are no longer required.

With the State Government having allowed both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals to participate in sport and exercise for some time now, it is timely for tennis to follow suit and align with the current Public Health Order.

Any venue in NSW (including tennis venues) retains the right to enforce mandatory vaccination at their own premises. Therefore, individual tennis venues are permitted to continue to require proof of vaccination for entry to their premises if they choose to do so, which should be respected by patrons at those venues.

This right will be determined by the venues for each of our 36 seniors tournaments so please check your tournament entry for details before entering.

However, in making the change to the statewide guidelines, Tennis NSW is no longer requiring a standard which exceeds the current Public Health Order and is moving to a position in line with how the general community in NSW is now operating.

While the immediate effect of this change (as from 1 February) may cause inconvenience in the short term, it was determined that there would be a level of inconvenience irrespective of which date in the future was nominated. Please contact Tennis NSW staff if you require assistance or guidance on working through implementation of the change.

Tennis NSW continues to strongly encourage all participants in the sport to be fully vaccinated and to receive a booster when eligible to do so.

Before you plan to play in any event don’t forget to renew your membership. Still just $20 payable to BSB 032-044 Acc # 315 326 or renew online with your credit card.
