NIGHT COMPETITIONS

WELCOME TO NIGHT TENNIS!

Tennis Geelong are running a trial season of Night Competition from October 22 to November 29.

Information for PLAYERS

TUESDAY: Mixed Doubles                                                                         * Teams of 2 Men and 2 Women, each player playing two sets of Mixed Doubles

THURSDAY: Triples (Non-Gender Specific Singles and Doubles)          * Teams of 3 (Men and/or Women), each player playing one set of Singles and two of Doubles

ENTRIES

For the trial season, players can enter individually. This means you don’t need a whole team from your club, and there is a better chance to grade teams more evenly.

Entries are accepted from Individuals, and will be graded into teams by Tennis Geelong. Requests will be accepted and accommodated where possible. Names will not be considered entered until payment is received. (See registration forms below for details)

Entries will be open from now until Sunday 30th September, and are to be submitted on the form below.

ENTRIES HAVE BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL WED 10TH OCTOBER

EMERGENCIES

If you can’t play every week, but would be happy to fill in when you are available, you can register as an emergency. You will be graded to a section, and the teams in these sections will be provided with your details and the weeks you are available so they can contact you directly.

Pre-graded emergencies will be added to the list at www.tennis.com.au\tennisgeelonginc\night-competitions\emergency-pool

IF YOU NEED AN EMERGENCY

Players are responsible for finding their own emergencies. Look at www.tennis.com.au\tennisgeelonginc\night-competitions\emergency-pool  for a guide on the emergencies that are available that week. Teams will be provided a list of graded emergencies appropriate for their section. You are welcome to use others, but these must be referred to Tennis Geelong to ensure grading stays even.

REGISTRATION FEE

MIXED: $42, TRIPLES $60. The fee is to cover the costs of balls, courts and lights at host clubs. Tennis Geelong are not receiving any payment for this trial.

When registering, players are agreeing to play the 6 weeks of competition, therefore cover the whole cost of the six weeks.

If players are unable to play for any reason, emergencies are not expected to cover the cost of the week that they play.

RECEIVING INFORMATION

Tennis Geelong will be providing players with information by email, so please make sure you enter this on your entry form.

Once teams are selected, a team list will be provided to each player, along with any graded emergencies. These lists will include phone numbers of each player.

RULES

Please find a copy of the rules, and method of play here: Night Pennant By-Laws – Interim

CAPTAINS

Teams will be appointed a Captain. This person is the contact for the team, and responsible for bringing a scoresheet each week (printed from Match Centre) and score entry into Match Centre. (They don’t necessarily have to do this themselves, but ensure that it happens). They should also be advised if you are unable to play and who will be playing in your place.
