JUNIOR MATCHPLAY PROGRAMME

SUPER SET TENNIS LADDER
The super set tennis ladder runs all year round and each Junior member can
Occupy a box on the tennis ladder.
The aim is clear. To improve your performance by climbing the ladder, with any
One player being able to challenge for a higher place on the ladder. This is
The equivalent of football’s FA Cup, where a smaller fish can become an even
Bigger one.
If a player lower on the ladder challenges and wins they swap positions. All
Matches must be one set plus a tiebreak if required. Challenges can take place
In your own time, just arrange a time to play.
In order to join or remain on the ladder you need to be a member.
A cup will be presented annually to the ladder leader, the ladder challenge starts
On the 1st Jan and closes on the 1st Dec every year.
THE JUNIOR DAVIS CUP
At the end of every school term there will be two junior Davis cup events, this
Event is open to all junior players and all players will receive and email/text
Confirming the date and time of this fantastic internal competition.
There will be Junior Davis cups a year.
All players are expected to sign in 15 mins before the event starts at the clubhouse
With their money and registration. Players will then be split in to teams.
Juniors will be split in to teams of 4 or more and given a Country that they will
Represent for that day. The Countries they represent will compete against each
Other using a Round Robin format. Country names could be as big as the U.S.A
Or as bizarre as the Cook Islands.
The Juniors will be graded according to ability, the number one seeds will be the
Better players and the number 4 seeds the players with less experience.
Each match will consist of one singles match and possibly one doubles for each
Player along with a special event. Each match will see the 2 number 1 seeds from
Each country face off and so on. The special event will be a team game. The time
Limit for each match will be a minimum of ten mins. The scoring system will be
Similar to table tennis 1,2,3 and up with players serving five points each before
Changing. This system makes every point worth playing as the total amount of
Points won by a Country, counts towards the outcome of the day.
The special event will be a team game like tug of war, football, tag rugby or
something bizarre depending on my choice of events. Points will be awarded on
events won. A leader board will be on show in the club house charting the progress
of each country and leading individuals with the highest tally of points.
At the end of the year when the last Davis cup has been played, awards will be
Given to all juniors that have represented the winning Country and a cup to the
Individual that has scored the most points.

Davis Cup  Members £8.00 Non Members £9.00
