Starts @ Empire from 7:10pm Tuesdays May 17 / Wednesdays May 18 (eight weeks).

Draws & Final Results – Series 1

Teams

Structure

Premier grades (Premier 1, Premier 2) on Tuesdays
* 2-player teams (2 x singles best of 7 & a doubles best of 5)

Division 1 grade on Wednesdays
* 3-player teams (9 singles & 2 doubles matches – as usual)

Division 2 grade on Tuesdays
* 3-player teams (9 singles & 2 doubles matches – as usual)

Teams are entered only from clubs – reach out to your club contact to be included.

Partial teams may be entered and we will endeavour to form composite teams.  Extra players may be entered for a team but only two (for Premier grades) or three (for Division 1 & 2 grades) may play for that team on any specific evening.

We will seed teams and limit the number of teams per grade to eight but each team may request a preferred highest grade.

Each grade will include a round robin with every team playing every other team.

Replacement players can be sourced from a lower grade or as approved by the interclub committee.  E.g. a Premier 2 player can fill in for a Premier 1 team (with another lower grade player filling in for the Premier 2 player’s team).

If a player is deemed to be of a certain standard through being named in a particular grade (and confirmed by the interclub committee at the time of naming teams in Grades), then that player can play any number of fixtures for a higher grade while still continuing to play in the lower grade. However players can fill in for higher grades in only one team during the series.

Entries close Wednesday 11 May. Late entries accepted only to fill byes in grades.

Note: treat this Series 1 as a distinct competition.  There will be a Series 2 (anticipated for after mid-year) however the format for Series 2 is TBD by the TTW interclub committee.  Teams would be re-entered for Series 2 & may be seeded & graded differently than Series 1 effectively this may mean some promotion/relegation vs. Series 1 (with or without playoff TBD).

The usual Code of Conduct will apply.
