MATCHPLAY INFO FOR ON THE DAY

Dodgy Weather - Sat 15th Feb CANCELLED DUE TO STORM DENNIS

Please check here BEFORE contacting Nick. Press 'Refresh' to be sure. We will always try to get Matchplay completed, even in poor weather. It is very rare that we have to cancel, but any weather updates will be posted here at least 30 minutes before the start.

Payment receipts

You can purchase Matchplay credits at Hawker reception ONLY, and the receipt must be handed to Nick before your child plays their first match. If your child doesn't have any remaining credits, please remember to either send your child with payment, or bring payment when you come down. 

Winter footwear

Please ensure children's tennis shoes are COMPLETELY free of mud and dirt,  especially on the soles. Children MUST NOT walk or play on any muddy/grassy land before going onto the courts. Respecting this will help reduce the slipperiness of the courts when wet, and in turn reduce the risk of slips and falls, and any injuries that they cause.

Doubles matches

If numbers don't work out to give everyone a doubles game, then usually those that signed up latest will miss out on doubles. You can also request not to play doubles when signing up.


Doubles will use sudden death deuce, and players are expected to use  traditional formations with net players so they can work on their volley skills. At deuce, the next point wins the game, and the receiving team can nominate who the server serves to.

Behaviour

All players are expected to respect fair play, their opponents, and their  surroundings. Any unacceptable behaviour will usually be dealt with first by a soft warning from the coach in charge, and then point penalties for further misdemeanours.

HELPFUL ADVICE FOR THOSE WHO EASILY GET UPSET DURING MATCHES!

Read through the following facts for any competitive tennis match, and accept that they are true. Remind yourself of this acceptance when you are next on court and feel things boiling over. If you can accept things you don't like in a tennis match, you won't need to react so badly to them. If you don't react badly so often, your emotional state will be more under control, which will have you better prepared for each and every point in the match. Emotional control will also give you important skills for all aspects of life, and not just the power to win more tennis matches than you otherwise would.


1) I have no right to win this tennis match


2) I may well have setbacks during this match, when I can choose to either react badly, or try and find a solution to them


3) I may not play my best tennis in this match


4) My opponent may well play excellent tennis at any time during this match


5) I may get some close line calls


6) My opponent has the right to never give up


7) I may well lose a lead in this match. If this happens, my choices are to either get upset, or to try my best to keep fighting to regain the lead.


8) I will make mistakes in this match


9) My opponent will win points from my errors


10) My opponent may well get some lucky winners. I can't control this, so getting upset about something I can't control is the sign of a mentally weak tennis player.
