All matches will be held on the one day (Saturday 3rd or Saturday 10th) with a 'fast' match format, with finals matches (normal 3 set format) following in the late afternoon of each day. Each match will be of a first to 4 game format (tie-breaker at 4-4). The draw for each event will be posted on the HTC website (www.hawthorntennisclub.com) on the Thursday prior as well as pinned to the Clubhouse notice board on the morning of the Competition day. At the close of the day will be a Presentation for the Winners and Runners Up of each event and a few well-earned beers/glasses of champagne!  

Entry is $10 per person/per event - money will be collected on the day. Club clothing will also be available for sale on the day. 

This is as much a social event as much as it is about the competition! Feel free to come down to the club to enjoy the competition even if you are not planning to compete. 

If you are interested in playing, please reply by email (info@hawthorntennisclub.com) with the events you would like to enter by Friday 26th August.
