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

On the first Sunday of every even numbered calendar month, the Junior Davis Cup takes centre stage, allowing all mini green ball and yellow ball players to compete.

All players are expected to sign in 15 minutes before the event starts at the clubhouse with their money and registration. Players will then be split into 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 minutes.

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 Iindividual that has scored the most points.

Davis Cup: Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct, Dec
