    Some matches will take place on local private courts. Please park carefully at the locations where you are playing and respect the property of those who have kindly loaned their courts for the event. We will endeavour to confirm prior to tournament if you have been assigned to groups playing on remote courts and therefore will require transport. Some matches in the afternoon will be played on remote courts. Please let us know if transport will be an issue prior to the event.
  • Player Ranking
    We rank players by the skill level they have declared on their online registration form. We then distribute players as fairly as possible across all groups to ensure a mixed level of skills.
  • Live Scoreboard
    We are hoping to have a live scoreboard so that all players and spectators can get up-to-the-minute updates on the matches, making the competition even more exciting!
  • Tennis Partner Pairing
    You can enter the tournament without a tennis partner and we will assign you one on the day, however we prefer if you can enter already with a partner as it helps balance the numbers entered. When purchasing tickets you can add each individual within the same checkout process.
  • Groups
    Each group will have a leader, a member from Moreton in Marsh Tennis Club, who will record scores and explain rules. Each group will be assigned a court to play on. All players will be seeded to make it as fair as possible with advanced players distributed across all groups.
