2019 Fastennis Singles Challenge Tournament

Time: 
Sun, 10/03/2019 - 8:00am - 2:00pm
Entries close: 
Thu, 28/02/2019 (All day)

As with all the Club’s participation-style tournaments, the Fastennis Singles Tournament is designed to cater for players of all levels and the aim is to keep everybody playing irrespective of whether they are winning or losing. In Fastennis, a set is won by the player who is first to win 21 points (like in the old table tennis scoring system).

Levels:

This tournament is designed to cater for players of all standards although it will be played as a single draw. 

Under the Continuous Feed-In Draw format which will be used, players will drop into consolation draws every time they lose.  This ensures multiple matches for all players and players will come through the draw to meet players of a similar standard.

Eligibility: Entry is restricted to members of The University of Queensland Tennis Club.  However, non-members will be granted free Restricted Membership of the Club (which includes free registration with Tennis Queensland) so that everybody can enter.  N.B. A higher entry fee applies for Restricted Members.

Format: Participation-style, which guarantee all entrants get multiple matches.

Entries: Lodge entries on-line here or download the entry form below.

N.B. Tennis Australia has made its tournament on-line entry system needlessly complicated.  When players go to enter on-line, they are asked to create a Tournament account if they don't already have one.  To create a Tournament account, players need their 11-digit Tennis Australia My Tennis Player ID Number.  Unfortunately, although the TA tournament on-line entry system still requires the 11-digit Player ID Number, Tennis Australia has stopped issuing Player ID Numbers automatically for new players being registered through My Tennis (as it is switching to using player e-mail addresses for identification purposes).  This means that players who do not have a Player ID Number, or don't remember their number, need to contact Tennis Australia via play@tennis.com.au or 1800 752 983 to obtain their number or have a number created for them (information required - name, postal address, unique e-mail address, birthdate and a phone number).
