Thursday Night Tennis

These fixtures cater for a wide range of standards.

The fixtures are played on Thursday evenings between 7:00 pm and approximately 10:00 pm. The post-match atmosphere is very friendly, with team mates and opposition players conducting post-mortems of what might-have-been over a few liquid refreshments.

Teams consist of seven doubles players or more of which six play any given match. The players are ranked within teams to make the tennis as even as possible. Each match is played over two courts. Matches consist of 6 sets, each of which is 8 games (two serves each, short deuces) to ensure that matches finish at a predictable time. The teams are relatively self-sustaining in membership terms, but new players can be placed in teams with the help of the fixture coordinator. Two fixture seasons are held each year.

The Thursday Night Committee which currently helps run the competition is as follows:
Di Green - Phone: 0450 918 446
Will Fraser - Phone: 0468 999 455
