The twilight tennis competition is a team competition which runs from October through to March with a break over the Christmas school holiday period.
The competition includes A grade, which plays on Tuesday night, and B grade which plays on a Monday night.
All players in the competition must be members of the Club. A membership form can be printed from our MEMBERSHIP page.
There are limitations regarding the number of teams accepted into the competition, hence you should strive to register your team as early as possible. Please CONTACT the club for team application forms. Teams consist of 2 men and 2 ladies. Each player will play two 8 game sets of mixed, and one doubles (tie-break at 4 all). Each team is responsible for finding their own substitute players.
In the event a member is substituted with a non-member on any occasion, the non-member shall pay a $10 Green Fee. Second hand tennis balls are used for this competition; hence there is no additional competition fee.
