Wednesday Night Social Tennis

Wednesday night social tennis has always been a hit with Glenlea. Night tennis is played consistently through out the year in-line with the school terms – meaning each season normally runs for approximately 10 weeks.

All age groups, level of ability and skill are welcomed within our club – it is more the social aspect and a good game of tennis that is the draw card on these evenings.

Games commence at 7.00pm with 3 doubles sets played against other teams within the club. Each team consists of two males and two females. With high powered lighting the courts are full lit enabling games to be played through until conclusion.

Club Competition Protocol

1. Player(s) nominate to play Winter or Summer and select preferred division.
2. In conjunction with the club coaches, the Senior and Junior Captains make a recommendation to the committee for ratification. The committee has the final say. Players are allocated to teams based on the available data in 'Match' the Tennis SA results database.
3. Where an entire team is nominated, the requested division will be nominated but the allocated division will be made by GDTA (Summer) or TSA (Winter).
4. Provisional nominations are released to players. Within the Order of Merit settling period (usually weeks 1-4) requests for a review of position will be made - taking into account the most recent results.
5. Following the Order of Merit settling period the Order of Merit is determined on the win two - lose two formula (eg if a player wins two matches in successive weeks and the player above has lost the last two matches then they must be changed over).
6. Players are allocated to teams based on ability and the club will do their best to accommodate specific player requests within these guidelines but provide no guarantee that these will be able to be achieved.
