COMPETITION HERE AT RAWORTH TENNIS CENTRE

The long established and highly successful Wednesday night Competition is running at the moment.  Players are paired together to make a team for the duration of the each Competition.  Players are graded as a 1 or 2, and the pairings comprise one player from each level.  The format for the Comp is that the number 2 players play singles first.  Then they partner up with their number 1 player and play a set of 1 and 2s doubles.  At the conclusion of that set, players partner their opposite number and cross courts to play either a set of 1s doubles or 2s doubles.  Play finishes for the night with 1s singles.  At the end of the run all teams play off for their position on the ladder.  Also up for grabs is the Most Valuable Player title which comes with a financial reward.  Individuals players accumulate games through the tournament and whichever of the number 1 and number 2 players are at the top of the tennis tree get the cash prize!  This Comp costs $10 per week and starts at 7pm.  Anyone who is interested in joining this can call Linda on 49333750.

Another regular and increasingly popular Competition is Thursday night mixed.  No cash prizes for this one so only $8 per week.  No commitment required for this – each week players are asked if they are available and a draw is done from there.  The usual format is 3 sets of doubles.  However depending on numbers some weeks there are some singles sets to be played.  This is a great social evening of tennis – always competitive but with lots of laughs too!  Please call for more information or to become involved.

Maitland District Tennis Association runs various Competitions throughout the year.     Raworth Tennis Centre members and players get involved in many of these and subsequently many matches are played here throughout the year on Saturday afternoons.

Our junior players are also encouraged to play some inter-club challenges with other Centres and also to play in some of the Tennis Australia sanctioned Tournaments too.

There is something for everyone!
