Open Court Sessions are on for Summer 2020

Open Court Sessions

The Doutta Galla Tennis Club is hosting Open Court Sessions throughout February and March.

Open Court Sessions are a new and great way to get out and meet new people, have a laugh, and play tennis at your skill level.

Going for around 90-minutes, you’ll have a 10-minute warm-up, 50-minutes of tennis activities and 30-minutes of socialising. On court, you’ll play different tennis activities including tennis on smaller courts, Pickleball and triples on a full size court. Off court, you’ll make new friends over a drink or a bite to eat.

The best bit? Just show up with or without friends and we will host the night. You don’t need any equipment or any tennis skills, just arrive and have a hit.

Bookings are essential, so to register please visit Doutta Galla’s Open Court Sessions page.

Each 90 minute session costs $15 and is only available to Adults 16 and older.

The Club is planning sessions on the following nights:

Club Championships Update

With the new format of Club Championships running really smoothly, there are some important changes for those involved in all doubles events in regards to format and timelines.

After seeing how many matches are still needing to play in the round robin, the Club Championship Referees have made the decision to remove semi-finals for some Events and extend the period for round robin matches to occur.

The following Events that are affected:

  • Men’s Doubles
  • Ladies Doubles
  • Mixed Doubles
  • Boys Doubles
  • Junior Mixed Doubles

For these events the round robin period will be extended until 24th November with only the top two teams moving through to play a grand final during the finals period of 25th November – 7th December.

All Singles events have not altered and still need to be finished by Sunday 10th November where possible.

Please also remember that all fees are to be paid before the end of the tournament. Each fee is payable for each event you are entered in. All fees need to be paid to the Club by either Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or by placing money in the box in the Club House.

  • If paying by EFT please put your name and Club Champs or CC in the Reference field.
  • If paying in the Club please ensure you name is written on the envelope clearly and include Club Champs.

The Club Championships 2019 Mini Site has been updated with all of the Results recorded so far.

Good Luck to all players for the rest of the tournament.
