For Doubles, a team has 4 players, each of whom play three 6 game sets, tiebreaker at 5 all, each set being with a different partner. The cost is $7 per player per match to cover cost of balls, lights and maintenance.
For Singles/Doubles, a team consists of 3 players, each of whom play 1 singles and 2 doubles x 6 game sets, tiebreaker at 5 all. The cost is $8 ditto.
The Club pays the Team Entry Fee of $25 to the Association.
Home matches begin at 7pm and finish early because we can usually allocate 2 courts per match.
Because we have 8 courts, we could accommodate many new night teams.

The competition is for Members only but teams may play a non-member once or twice rather than forfeit a match –provided the non-member also pays a visitors fee. Note that members enjoy the benefit of the Club Insurance Policy.
