How the tournament will work

The Men’s and Ladies Singles draws and the Men’s Doubles draw will follow the same knock-out format as a Grand Slam event.

The Ladies Doubles draw will be a round robin format, with 4 pairs in each group.  Each pair will play 3 sets of tennis, one each against the other three pairs in their group.  After the round robin, the 4 best performing pairs will progress through to the semi-finals and the winners of the semi-finals will play off in the final.

3rd Annual WBTC Junior Championship

3rd Annual WBTC Junior Championship

Held on Sunday 21 October, the Junior Champs were played for the third year running and what a great day of tennis we had.

Not only were we blessed with beautiful weather, the sportsmanship demonstrated all round and the spirit in which the game was played was exceptional and a credit to all our young juniors.

Thank you to the many people who made this day possible.  The players who participated and the parents who supported the event and assisted on the day, the committee who did the hard work in the planning and the coaches for coming along on the day and making it extra special for the kids participating.

Congratulations to all the players.
