Herne Bay Ponsonby Rackets Tennis Club Champs 2018

Entries are now open for the senior and junior HBPRC Tennis Club Champs for 2018.

Secure your place in the draw by filling in the entry form now! Preliminary rounds will be played Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings or as agreed between competitors. Finals day is Sunday, 15 April, followed by prize giving and barbeque. A rain date of Sunday, 22 April has been set aside.

Conditions of entry are that you must be available to play on the finals day/s, and while we are attempting a full Open and B (S7/D7 and below) senior draw of singles, doubles, and mixed, we may need to run a first-round plate competition for the B comp if the Open entry numbers are low.

Tournament Director's decision on draw will be final and entry fee is a flat $10 for a maximum of three events. Juniors please enter via the form too. If you are ungraded, don't have a partner, enter anyway, we'll sort you out with a seeding and find you a good match for playing partner. Hurry, entries are only open for the next fortnight.
