Getting Started:

  • You can see who your opponent is by logging into Playwaze.com
  • The dates that each round must be played by are shown in each of the tournament draws.
  • You can contact your opponent to set up the match by finding their email or phone number on the ‘Members’ page.
  • Please update the final score on PlayWaze once the match is complete.

Tournament Rules:

  • Matches are to be arranged at a mutually convenient time and must be completed before the play by dates (can be seen at the top of each round).
  • Please bring your own balls (there will be none available at the club). 
  • Tournament matches do not get priority over courts but should be allowed to finish once started. 

Adult Scoring Format:

  • Matches are the best of 3 tie-break sets.
  • If all players agree, in advance, a Championship 3rd set tie-break can be played (to 10 points) instead of a 3rd full set.

Junior Scoring Format:

  • Each match is best of 3 short sets (to 4 games).
  • If it is one set all, a Championship tie-break is to be played (to 10 points).

Lastly, please note the doubles ladder will be paused for the duration of the Club Tournament. 

Good luck!

Court Maintenance

The block of three courts is due to be given a refurbishment on Weds/Thurs this coming week (Aug 23/24). As the children's camps have finished for the summer holidays, the block of four courts will be available for general play.
