We help players grow and develop as individuals

Yarra Valley Series

 

Located in the Yarra Ranges Shire, the Triangle comprises Hill and Rural communities and Tennis Victoria affiliated clubs with teams in the Eastern Region Tennis Association.

 

 

 

INDIVIDUAL & TEAM CUP COMPETITIONS

The Yarra Valley Tennis Series individual and team cups have been created to help bridge the gap between coaching classes and practice to assist in the transition to traditional junior pennant and tournaments.

Events have been conducted at Yarra Glen TC, Monbulk TC, Yarra Junction TC and Warburton TC, and soon to be at Seville TC.


We play in these stages in the Yarra Valley Tennis Series - 

RED stage pre-formal competition standard, featuring -

    • 25% compression RED balls, smaller RED sized courts and 3m nets
    • timed matches and under arm serves (bounce and hit)


GREEN
stage pre-pennant and pre-tournament standard (including improved RED stage) -

    • 75% compression GREEN balls, played on GREEN sized courts
    • players serve diagonally into the service box
    • players can serve over arm on the first serve but if it is a fault should serve an under arm (bounce and hit) second serve
    • timed and/or 10 point match tiebreak

RED and GREEN stages may involve some blending of matches depending on player standards and number of entrants


YELLOW
stage early pennant and tournament standard (including suitable RED and GREEN stages) -

    • full compression balls, play on standard courts
    • players must serve over arm, and use standard scoring
    • either 10 point tiebreak, or 4 game set with tiebreaker at 3-all
