We currently participate in the following Tennis Victoria & Association run competitions

• TENNIS VICTORIA PENNANT
Tennis Victoria Pennant is Australia’s largest inter-club competition and marks its 139th year since inception in 2022.  The competition is played over 14 or 15 weeks. In eight team sections, each team plays each other twice over 14 weeks, and in six team sections teams play each other three times over 15 weeks.  Pennant usually runs from Mar/Apr to Aug/Sep. 
For 2022, our Men’s and Women’s leagues will continue to use the singles and doubles each week format utilised in 2021 in order to give it a full season trial. Two eight-game sets will be played for both doubles rubbers, followed by four singles rubbers, played in a best-of-two set format, with a ten-point match tiebreaker instead of a full third.  See 2022 Season Information Guide here
