TENNIS COMPETITION FORMAT & DATES

Tuesday Inter-Club Ladies' Doubles

MEMRLTA organises ladies' doubles inter-club competitions in the Melbourne eastern metropolitan area.

Matches are played every Tuesday except during State school term holidays and public holidays. While our by-law states that matches shall commence at 10am or at a time mutually agreed upon, the majority of matches commence at 9:30am.

Each match consists of 6 sets of ladies' doubles: 1st & 2nd players, 3rd & 4th, 1st & 3rd, 2nd & 4th, 1st & 4th, and 2nd & 3rd.

Sets are eight game sets with no advantage. Players participating in matches must be financial members of the clubs registering them.

If the temperature reaches 32 degrees C at the appointed starting time or at any time thereafter, play may be stopped at the option of either captain.

There are two seasons each year: Summer and Winter. Both seasons comprise 10 teams per section although approximately every 5 years, to balance available Tuesdays, the Winter season is altered to consist of 8 teams per section.

Dates of Current & Future Seasons

Winter 2017 Season— 8-team sections

Summer 2017/18 Season— 10-team sections
