Twilight Tennis is a fun doubles competition played on Wednesday evenings from 5.30 pm to approx 7 pm from late September/early October to end of March each year with a break over the Christmas - New Year period.
Teams consist of three players [maximum two men] ie. the team may have three women players.
Each match consists of three sets. Each player plays two sets of 11 games each set. The winner of the match is the team with at least 17 games won.
A handicap scoring system is used to keep scores even. If you win the first game, then you begin the next game at 0 - 15. If you then win the next game, you begin the third game at 0 - 30 and so on.
The competition winner will be the team with the most matches won. In the event of a draw, it will then be the team with the most games won.
This competition is a great opportunity for adults who wish to get into tennis or get back into tennis after a break. It is also a great chance for groups of friends or workmates to get out and have some fun.
The competition is split into two sections so there is ample space for players of all abilities.
If you are not able to make up a team on your own, please advise the Tennis Centre and we will find a team for you.
