Doubles Competition

Hi All

There are no Senior or Junior matches scheduled on Saturday 14th July due to the school holidays. 

 Are you interested in playing in a Doubles tournament over that weekend to get some practice under match conditions?

The tournament offers a separate event for Men and Women - but Mixed teams may enter - and will cater for Senior players and our higher division Junior players. 

VENUE – The Hectorville Tennis Club – a division of the Hectorville Sports & Community Club (HSCC) - at the Daly Oval in Fisher Street at Magill.

WHEN – Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th July

Players must as in other tournaments be available for all programmed times for the tournament

COST - $20 per team

                To cover competition costs – balls, prizes, etc 

SCHEDULE – I will conduct the Doubles tournament as a Round Robin if there are 16 or less entered in an event.

However, if there are more than 16 entries the Doubles will be played as a knockout event with a consolation event for 1st & possibly 2nd round losers.

Players will therefore get the opportunity to play in more than more than 1 match in the tournament.          

FORMAT –   A Separate competition for Men & Women is proposed but Mixed teams may enter.

                                  I would encourage our higher division Juniors to enter.

TOURNAMENT MATCH FORMAT – The Doubles matches will be played as a rubber

        With a Best of 3 sets Format

       The first two sets will be a traditional set with a 7point Tie break to be played at 6 games all then a

    Super Tie break (10 point) is to be played - if the Doubles match is at 1 set each – instead of a traditional 3rdset 

Send this email to your family and friends.

They may be interested.

 Entries close at 7pm on Monday 9th July.

 This Doubles tournament will be popular 


register as a Doubles team or as an individual by return email so that you don’t miss out on the opportunity to take part in this Doubles Tournament.

Tournament Times

I will be doing the draws on the Tuesday or Wednesday and will send out the times for the tournament as soon as possible after that.
