When can players start playing Interclub?
When junior players reach a certain skill level, they may be at a suitable playing level to play interclub.
Once players reach this level, we encourage them to attend our Wednesday junior club nights, where they are able to play fun games of doubles and learn some more about scoring and the etiquette of tennis.
As we want to ensure players enjoy interclub, inclusion in an interclub team is subject to the approval of the coaches and Junior committee who will consider the players age, ability and the spaces available to create teams.
Interclub trials may be held for some players to check a player's ability, or to ensure, where possible, the player gets placed in the appropriate team.
Interclub players must be committed to their team and be available to play all scheduled games in the pre and post Christmas season.
