Due to a huge increase in competitors over the last 4 years, popular demand & an all- time record in membership numbers Tournament Director & T.A. Club Professional Coach, David McAllister has decided that the early rounds of the Men’s events will be held in October. Matches will be best of 3 tiebreak sets. This will assist in freeing-up court time for the Sundays in November that we play the other junior & senior singles & doubles events.

Entries will close on 5th October & the draw will be posted for play to start on Sunday 12th October.

All competitors must provide a Mobile contact number next to their name to assist match scheduling, it will be the duty of both players to contact each other to arrange their match. In the event of a dispute the Tournament Director’s decision will be final.

Timelines for each round will be posted on this noticeboard & also at . There will be a timeframe of approximately 1 to 2 weeks per round depending on the number of entries.

Please consult the court booking sheet in the clubhouse window to assist you in scheduling your matches.

Play nicely, or you may incur the wrath of Dave!

The semi-finals will be held on Sunday 9th November, along with all other scheduled round-robin junior & senior events.

The finals will be held on Sunday 16th November including all final rounds in the other events, & a great BBQ !!!

Rules & Regulations

1.Starting times are staggered to avoid court congestion so please observe the starting time for each event in the top left hand corner of the draw sheet.  These will be posted inside the club house once draws are finalised. 
2.Every event in the round robin stage will have a “sudden death at deuce” format.  The receiver/s will choose which side they would like to return serve on.  (i.e. deuce box or advantage box.) 
3.Match lengths will be run according to the size of the draw.  The match lengths may be changed due to inclement weather or other factors at the referee’s discretion. 
4.All players should be available for both scheduled days & also Sunday 23rd of November if needed due to weather interruptions.  If any player forfeits due to illness, injury or any other reason all of their matches will be lost to zero games – even those already played! 
5.Blatant foot-faulting (one whole foot over the line) will be called.
6.There will be a “3 strikes and you’re out!” policy.  First offence 1 point penalty, 2nd offence 1 game penalty & 3rd offence loss of match.  This will apply to racquet throwing, abusive language or behaviour judged inappropriate to the game of tennis.  In other words play nice! 
7.Players only on the court unless an umpire is called for.
8.The referee’s decision shall be final – no appeals.
9.Please be reminded that this is an all-day “tennis festival” as much as anything else.  It is a time for all members, playing & non- playing alike to socialise, make new friends and have fun. 
10.Bacon & Eggs for breakfast, BBQ lunch & snacks will be served on each day at amazingly low prices.
