Transport

Parking
While there are more spots at the courts than at Parklands, parking is still limited. Unmetered car parking is available in the surrounding streets.
The tennis club is fully licenced. So if you would like to enjoy a drink, perhaps opt for public transport or find that designated driver. 

Format

• 3 divisions comprising 2 groups of 5 teams per division.
• Each group will have a captain who is responsible for managing balls for the group and reporting the scores back to the tournament desk.
• Within each group, each team will play a round robin of 4 matches of 1 set, first to 6 games.
• 2nd deuce is sudden death point, a standard tiebreak at 5-5.
• The winner and runner up of each group will be determined by sets won. In the event of a tie on sets, the winner will be determined by the higher percentage of games won. ie. Games won divided by total games played (eg. 20 games won, 18 games lost = 20/(20+18) = 52.632%)

The winner of each group will advance to their division final. The runner up of each group will play off for 3rd /4th

Balls: Slazenger
