After an unfortunate Covid-related cancellation of the 2020 season, Tennis Victoria Pennant is back for 2021!
WHAT IS PENNANT?
Tennis Victoria Pennant is Australia’s largest inter-club competition and marks its 138th year since inception in 2021.
The competition is played over 14 or 15 weeks. In eight team sections, each team plays each other twice over 14 weeks, and in six team sections teams plays each other three times over 15 weeks.
For 2021, our Men’s and Women’s leagues will see a trial change in the format as an adaption to the uncertainty of the pandemic. Instead of singles one week and doubles the next, singles and doubles will be played each week, adopting a similar format as Tennis Victoria’s Associations Junior League. Two eight-game sets will be played for both doubles rubbers, followed by four singles rubbers, played in a best-of-two set format, with a ten-point match tiebreaker instead of a full third. This is a similar format to what was going to be used for the cancelled 2020 season.
