BBTA SINGLES TOURNAMENT – The Baw Baw Tennis Association 2017/18 Singles Tournament will be held on Sunday, February 18th 2018.
This tournament is open to players who play within the Baw Baw Tennis Association
The Baw Baw Tennis Association is the governing body for a local Junior Tennis competition played across a number of towns in the Baw Baw Shire, in beautiful West Gippsland, Victoria. The B.B.T.A. is made up of the following clubs: Buln Buln, Drouin, Neerim District, Trafalgar, Warragul, Warragul North and Yarragon. The Association fields sections ranging from Pennant (our top section), through to Section 9 (our beginners section).
Section 9 is the beginners section where our youngest players first learn the game. Parents initially assist the children and matches are played using compression balls, making it easier for smaller children to hit and rally. Our Section 9’s don’t play finals, but continue to play matches over the finals weeks.
Our lower sections (Sections 5 – 9) start at 8:00am on a Saturday morning and are finished by 9:30am. Our higher Sections (Pennant – Section 4) start at 9:30am on a Saturday morning and are finished by 12:00pm.
The season commences in October and runs through to the finals which are held in mid to late March. There is a break commencing just prior to Christmas through until the end of the January school holidays where no matches are played.
Clubs submit team entries to the Association by early September for grading. Clubs endeavour to enter teams with players of similar ability. Teams are then graded and put into sections to play against other teams of a similar standard.
The B.B.T.A. holds two closed tournaments throughout the season; a section based doubles tournament and an age based singles tournament. The tournaments are always well attended and enjoyed by players and parents.
