How Competition Tennis Works

Competition tennis is played by teams of four to eight players with 2 doubles and 4 singles for a match. Most teams use 4 to 5 players but can use more if they want to. The matches are played against other clubs in the NETA in a home and away season. This means that over the season teams usually get equal number of home and away matches. The away matches could be at other clubs in your division such as Prospect, Playford, Para Hills, or Tea Tree Gully etc. Players are required to wear appropriate tennis attire and bring a racquet. Tennis balls are provided by the home club on the day.
