Important Information for the Countdown 2 Christmas Tournament Tour

The Tournament Tour has nine days of tournament tennis.  This comprises of 3 events of 3 days for players of different playing standards.  Players will be divided into tiers depending on UTR ratings.

All players will be scheduled to play seven matches in each tournament.  It is not an option to play in the singles event only.  The tournament tour believes in player and skill development and players are expected to compete in both draws should they enter the tournament.

All singles draws will be made of a 16 player compass draw.  This will mean all players are guaranteed four quality matches at their level of play.  More info on a compass draw can be found here. 

The aim of this tournament tour is to have a large number of quality matches over a short period of time.

Each player will be able to complete his/her singles matches in a morning session or an afternoon session.  Doubles matches will be played back to back.  

Day 1:  2 x singles matches (start of the 16 player compass draw)
Day 2:  3 x doubles matches (complete an 8 team compass tournament)
Day 3: 2 x singles matches (the completion of the singles compass draw)

All players are welcome to play in one or two, or all three of the tournaments.  You will not be expected to play all three tournaments equalling nine days unless you would like to.  

We are excited to be have the following UTR events:
