Upcoming Tournaments


What is an UTR tournament?

Universal Tennis Rating is a global rating system that promotes fair and competitive play across the tennis world. All players, regardless of age, gender, geography or skill level, are rated on the same scale between 1 and 16.50 based on actual match results.

My child is 11, can they play Under 14s?

Yes, your child can play in any age group, as long as they don’t exceed the age group year.

My child’s UTR doesn’t go up, do they have to play someone higher?

No, it depends on your score against your opponent, whether they are higher or lower. For more information

What kind of format do you play?

Depending on which tournament you have registered for.

Our Junior Round Robin’s are Best of 2 Fast 4 sets with a match tiebreak. You are commited to play 3 matches in your 3 hour timeframe.

All our other tournaments or matchplay are either 2 full sets & a match tiebreaker or a full 3 set match.

Do we have to play every week of Round Robins?

No, Vince runs these events to encourage players to play more matches. He believes the best way to improve, is to play many matches.
