2017 Ekka Singles Challenge Tournament

The 2017 Ekka Singles Challenge Tournament will be played on Wednesday morning, 16 August, starting at 9 a.m.

This tournament is designed for players of all standards although it will be played as a single draw.  Even though all players (male & fmale) will go into a single draw, because of the continuoius feed-in format which will be used, they will drop into consolation rounds whenever they lose and will keep playing.  This means there will be some mis-matches in the early rounds but players will progress through the draws to meet players of their own standard and will get lots of matches.

As everybody goes into a single draw, players do not need to know their player rating or Fixtures grade to enter this tournament.

Entrants must be Club Members but non-members will be given free Restricted Membership so they can enter.  Entry fees for Restricted Members are higher than for Ordinary, Associate & Junior Members.

Entries close on Thursday, 10 August.

Entry forms can be collected from under the clubhouse or downloaded as a PDF file here.

Entries can also be lodged on-line via the Tennis Australia Tournaments Website here.

Players can use this link to check their entries have been received and to check who else has entered.

 

N.B. Tennis Australia has made its on-line tournament entry system needlessly complicated.   When players go to enter on-line, they are asked to create a Tournament account if they don’t already have one. To create a Tournament account, players need their 11-digit Tennis Australia My Tennis Player ID Number.  Unfortunately, although the Tennis Australia on-line tournament entry system still requires the 11-digit My Tennis Player ID Number, Tennis Australia has stopped issuing Player ID Numbers automatically for new players being registered through My Tennis (as it is switching to player e-mail addresses for identification purposes).  This means that players who do not have a Player ID Number, or don’t remember their number, need to contact Tennis Australia via play@tennis.com.au or 1800 752 983 to obtain their number or have a number created for them.
