Interclub tennis is run by Tennis Canterbury. Interclub provides a competitive environment for Junior players between the ages of 9 and 18. Teams are made up of five players who compete in both single and double matches. All parents of the team members are required to transport & supervise the team on a one in five roster basis. You must stay with the team for the duration of the matches.
Within each age group there are a number of divisions which helps us enter teams and players at an appropriate level. We keep teams to a maximum of five players. Each team is allocated a one hour training session with their coach during the week.
Matches are played on Friday nights and Saturday mornings (you choose one day) across a wide range of clubs and locations throughout the city. Interclub tennis is not only a great environment to further develop our junior tennis talent, it also provides an interesting mix of individual and team achievements.
For strong and competitive players, there are "Challenger" grades on Friday nights. The formation of these teams is based on the coach's assessment of ability (which also takes into account configure ranking points) and the availability of spaces in a team at an appropriate level. Teams are allocated into Challenger grades by Canterbury Tennis based on the average Configure ranking points of the team members. You can find out more about configure rankings on the Tennis Canterbury Website.
