Tennis Club Competitions, England
How the tennis competitions work:
When participating in our tennis competitions against local clubs, we recommend playing a “doubles tennis” format. Depending on the number of players travelling from your club, we will typically divide you into smaller groups consisting of five, six or seven persons. Each group will then compete in men’s doubles, ladies doubles, mixed doubles or vets doubles with your best players being placed in group one. If you are members of the youth tennis academy or school, then you may choose to divide your players into squads. Once you have confirmed your preferred format and standard of play we will match your team against one of our local clubs for the competition element of your stay.
As a typical format, each double pair will play their opposition once, thus playing up to seven games of tennis in one day. We will do our upmost to provide your tennis club members with plenty of game time. However, the host club may include time limits per game, reduced number of sets, short deuces or alternative formats so everyone can play an equal amount of tennis on the day.
Type of Tennis Courts
Tennis with England is played worldwide on a variety of surfaces including acrylic, artificial grass, asphalt, carpet, concrete or natural grass – inside and outside. Please tell us your preferred choice of surface when booking and we will endeavour to find a club with a suitable surface for your stay.
How we grade your standard of play
Every club and every player has a different understanding on the level of their play, therefore we have outlined below a guide to the scale that we will use in order to try and match your ability with our coaches and local oposition:-
1-2 = Pro / Coach standard
3-5 = Advanced players
6-7 = Intermediate players
8-9 = Improving players
10 = Complete beginner / no experience
