Easter Tournament

 

Myrtleford Lawn Tennis Club Easter Tournament is the highlight of our Tennis Season. The competition attracts hundreds of tennis players from around Australia.

 

SENIOR ENTRIES FOR THE 2018 MYRTLEFORD EASTER TOURNAMENT ARE CLOSED AS AT 8.30am MONDAY 5 FEBRUARY>.

Junior entries are still being taken.

 

 

For 2018 we have regraded all events to

Open, A Grade, B Grade, C Grade and D Grade. These replace the original A, B, C and D and players entries will need to take this into account when entering.

For example: if you entered B and C Singles in 2017 you would play A and B Singles in 2018.

New events for 2018 are Men’s D Singles, Men’s D Doubles, Women’s D Doubles and D Mixed.  These events have been introduced to cater for the lower level and social players who are unable to be competitive at the C grade level. The Tournament committee will be looking at past results when accepting entries. Players may be regraded if they do not meet the requirements listed above.

Women’s and Men’s Legends events now has a combined age of both players that must exceed or equal 110 years.

The Tournament conditions for 2018 are available.     click here
