Australian Schools Tennis Challenge – Cancelled for 2021
The Australian Schools Tennis Challenge has been cancelled for 2021, this is not a decision that has been reached lightly. After reviewing the currently available roadmaps for each state, including proposed easing of restrictions, predicted vaccination rates and proposed interstate border opening dates, the interstate border opening dates for a number of participating states have made holding a National championships unfeasible at the proposed time.
Thank you for your support of the Australian Schools Tennis Challenge, we look forward to seeing the return of Interstate School Tennis in 2022.
The Australian Schools Tennis Challenge has been the premier secondary school team tennis event in the country since 1996. This event provides an opportunity for the best secondary school teams to come together to play each other and celebrate their achievements on a national stage.
Separate boys and girls team divisions, a maximum of 12 teams in each event will be accepted.
Teams consist of 4 – 6 players and must be accompanied by a teacher/coach from the school.
Matches will consist of 4 singles and 2 doubles matches.
Singles matches will be the best of 2 sets. The first 2 sets will be a tie breaker at 6 games all and the deciding set will be a match tie breaker (if required). Doubles matches will be the best of 2 short sets (first to 4 games) and the deciding set will be a match tie breaker (if required).
Note: Formats may be adjusted at the Tournament Director’s discretion if the event is impacted by inclement weather.
School must qualify by winning their State championship event or School Sport Association competition (in lieu of a state championships being held). Wildcard nominations will be considered according to the teams playing standard (Player ratings/rankings considered). All awarded Wildcards by the Tournament Director are final.
All players must be enrolled as students at their school.
Note: The previous age eligibility rule has been removed.
