Teams are made up of four players, with four singles & two doubles games being played each week.

A Reserve Teams

The teams in this grade are made up of players across all the clubs in the interests of making this competition as fair as possible across all teams.  

Singles are to be played first, followed by doubles.  Ideally we want the singles match ups to be as meaningful and competitive as possible ie, No 1s playing each other and the same for No 2s, 3s & 4s.  

Please ensure games are started promptly.   The aim is for all games to be completed by 1 pm in time for Open Grade to start.

New tennis balls are provided every second week.  Each week the balls must be collected and stored at the Tennis Centre, along with the team booklets.
