Social Singles Competition

Welcome to the Social Singles Competition where you can play your match at your own time on our tennis courts!

Our new social singles competition begins on July 1. Participants are allowed to enter midseason.

Rules & Processes
Players are given an initial rank based on previous competition or coach’s recommendations. New entrants will have to arrange a 10 minute hit to gain an initial rank – contact 0423 300 380 or play@tenniscanberra.com.au
Players can challenge others up to 5 ranking spots from them (i.e. rank no.5 can challenge all the players from rank 1 to rank 10). In the spirit of the competition, we advise players to challenge players above them as well as below them in the rankings.
Players are recommended to playing two matches a fortnight or more. The more matches you play the better your chances.
Rankings are updated every week. There is a cap on players moving a maximum of 2 spots per week. Based on the average between the number of games won to lost players will move in the ranking. Players that have a higher average than the player above them take their spot.
Knock-Out Stages will take place on the last two weeks of the season. Players must try to be available for it in the last two weeks of the season.
