Coaching assistant Andrew Dingwall who run the event said, “Another great day of tennis in our last event before our Totally Tennis World Tour Finals. After numerous marathon rallies Hayden was triumphant in a 10-4 victory over Daniel in our orange final.” he added. “With some great winners and some great rallies our green event came to an end as Daniel was victorious over Dylan 4-2 in the final.“
The Totally Tennis Tour is for Development Squads and Mini Performance Squads players. There are six tournaments throughout the year and then the Grand Final where the top eight players from each squad will be invited back to play for the chance to finish as the club champions. There will be an up to date leaderboard showing players rankings in each squad. Points are awarded to the winner, runner-up and third/fourth place players for each event as well as for entering. The Grand Slam events of the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open offer higher points and all points will be added to each age group leaderboard.
