Please note that this event uses different software to normal events and the software does not allow for posting a “draw” as it is a team event.
In a team event players are scheduled to start and finish at a specific time.
All players will play in singles and doubles. Players should be aware of the basic positioning in doubles and how players move within a doubles match according to whether they are the serving team or the returning team. There will be some time taken at the beginning of each event to assist players with the basics.

It is advisable to ask your players coach or their tennis program if they can work on some basic doubles prior to competing.

Main Draw will be posted after the entry deadline.

Draw posted Monday Prior to event by 12pm – All entry fees to be collected by Wednesday prior to the event.

Withdrawal deadline:

Main Draw – 12pm Tuesday prior to the event

Reserve list – 12pm Wednesday prior to the event (if still on reserve after this time there is an expectancy to be available and ready to play the event)

Payment instructions will be sent AFTER ACCEPTANCE to the Main Draw players.

Tennis BC will place players into teams after registration and payment is completed.

There is an expectation that players on the reserve list are available for the event however they will be given an opportunity to withdraw through a separate “reserve withdrawal deadline”

Players notified as reserves that do not withdraw after the “reserve withdrawal deadline” will be charged the entry fee and listed as no shows which could affect their entries into future events until payment is received.
