Welcome to the 2018/2019 season of junior interclub tennis. This season there are three competitions

  1. Regular Saturday / Sunday Interclub Competition
  2. Sunday afternoon Mixed Doubles grade
  3. Friday evening Singles Champions League

Most players will be familiar with option 1 which we run every year.

The Sunday afternoon Mixed Doubles grade is a new grade open to all junior players (S11 and above) already playing Junior or Senior Interclub for any another team (or not) in any other Wellington or Kapi Mana grades. This grade will be played at the Renouf Centre every Sunday afternoon (3pm) and each tie will consist of 4 Mixed Doubles (Boy1 & Girl1 VS B1&G1; B2&G2 VS B2&G2; B1&G2 VS B1&G2; B2&G1 VS B2&G1)

The Friday evening Singles Champions League will run from 4.30pm at the Renouf Centre and is open to all Juniors ranked S9 and above that are keen to play more competitive matches on top of their usual Junior/Senior Interclub matches. Players will register directly to Tennis Central if they wish to be part of this competition. Information with more details and how to enter will be available soon.

These are the key dates for this season:
