MINI TENNIS RED LEAGUES (SEPTEMBER TO DECEMBER 2017)

COMPETITION DETAILS

Mixed Competition

The Mini Red Leagues will consist of a round robin elimination competition, with the winner from each of the 3 tier 1 venues progressing to a county final.  Teams can enter in tier 1 (for stronger players), or tier 2 (for beginners)

 

Girls Only Competition

We are proposing to run a girls’ only competition again.  The format will be a league (no final).  This competition will be hosted by DL Coventry (previously Virgin) and all matches will take place at this venue.

 

ELIGIBILITY, EVENTS AND FORMAT

A player may only represent one place to play in this competition.  A player can “play up” once; if they play up for a second occasion they are then tied to that team or higher.

Players must be aged 8 or younger on 31st March 2018.  Each rubber consist of a match tie-break to 10pts, sudden death at 9-9.  As before, each player will get 2 singles and a doubles match.

 

Mixed Competition (@ DL Coventry, DL Solihull & Edgbaston Priory)

Each team shall consist of four players, with at least one boy or one girl in the team. Therefore a team could be: 1 boy and 3 girls, 1 girl and 3 boys, 2 boys and 2 girls.

 

Girls Only Competition (hosted at DL Coventry only)

Each team shall consist of 4 girls

 

Once the entry form has been submitted the team will be placed in a round robin box and informed of match dates and times.  The team will compete against all others in the box on the dates and times listed.  All matches will be played on a Sunday afternoon and at a local venue (either David Lloyd Solihull, Edgbaston Priory Club or DL Coventry)

 

For the mixed competition, we will again be operating a two tier entry system (provided that there are sufficient numbers). Tier 1 will be for stronger/performance players and Tier 2 will be for club players who have not had much external competition experience. 

 

Match Fees

Each team will play £10.00 to the host venue prior to the start of the match.  A fine will be in place for teams that fail to fulfil a fixture.

 

Competition Dates

The first Sunday of matches will be Sunday 24th September 2017.  All matches will take place on a Sunday afternoon between midday and 6pm.  Half-term weekends will be avoided.  The County Finals (mixed event) will take place on Sunday 10th December 2017.
