Junior Tennis Competitions

SATURDAY AM COMPETITION 

The METC conduct a weekly home & away junior tennis competition as part of the Eastern Region Tennis Association Saturday morning fixture.

It is open to players 18 years of age and under who are members of our club.

The competition is seasonal and is comprised of a Summer and a Winter season.

Competition starts at 8.30am and kids are graded into teams according to their ability rather than their age.

It is a great deal of fun and a fantastic way for kids to get out and enjoy some exercise whilst interacting with their peers.

For more information on this or any other competitions you can visit the Eastern Region Tennis Association website on the following link:

This website will also contain information on team ladders, fixtures, results and court locations which is an invaluable tool for all kids and their parents that are involved in competition tennis.

Alternatively you can contact the club via our email for more information:

We look forward to seeing you all become a part of the METC Junior tennis community.

   

 

SUNDAY AM RED BALL

COMPETITION

The Red Ball competition is tennis in a modified format targeted at children 9 years of age or under using the heavily modified red tennis ball.

It is an introduction to competition tennis for our very youngest players.

The competition was the brainchild of our own club coach Matt O’Toole who in conjunction with Cynthia McKenzie of the Eastern Region Tennis Association introduced the format in what was a hugely successful trial season in late 2017.

As a result of that success the Eastern Region Tennis Association now offers this competition in both a Winter and Summer fixture.

The Winter season is to be held in terms 2 & 3 whilst the Summer Season is in Terms 4 & 1 of the school year.

It is a Sunday morning competition for club members which sees teams of 3 kids playing against kids from other clubs in a best of 6 game set all within the confines of the court’s service boxes.

Each child plays two sets with sudden death at Deuce using the modified red tennis ball.

As this is a development competition there is some room for parents to become involved if they wish to.

For more information about this marvellous competition please feel free to call our club coach Matt O’Toole on 0425711879 or email us at
