Each club will be competing for the $6000 winner’s cheque in both the men’s and women’s competitions, and the opportunity to then represent Victoria at the National Playoffs and compete against each other State Conference champion and teams from New Zealand, Asia and the Pacifics, with over $95k prize money on offer.

 

Tennis Victoria’s Competitions Manager is excited about the quality of the Vic Conference teams ” The 2013 Vic Conference is set to explode, thanks to our star studded line up of players who have signed up for the competition and endorsed this innovative new age league.¬†On paper the standard of the Vic Conference certainly measures up well against other states, and following the success of our own Liston Seagulls being crowned National Champions back in January at the Australian Open, we are confident of another strong showing by our eventual Vic Conference champions. But it will certainly be a hotly contested Vic Conference!”

 

Let the action begin!
