Community Bank Creswick & District Twilight Corporate Cup
In 2003, a sub committee of the Mt Prospect District Tennis Association, was formed to organise and run a Twilight Corporate Challenge, involving businesses around Ballarat, who compete in both mens and mixed competitions. Each team comprises 4 players, with matches comprising 4 sets, with each team member playing two sets each match. The 2023.24 draw is available here, with the competition rules available here.
The competition is played on a Wednesday night, commencing at 6.00pm and usually concluding at 8.00pm, with bar facilities available and a light tea provided for the players and their families. The competition usually commences late October, breaks for Christmas and January school holidays and concludes late March, with a grand final tea and presentations.
The 23/24 major sponsor is the Community Bank Creswick and District. This is the sixth year that will see the Community Bank as major sponsor of the Twilight Corporate Cup, know as the Community Bank Creswick and District Twilight Corporate Cup.
