TA Sanctioned Tournaments

 

Green  Ball (all 10 & under + most of 12 & under)

Yellow ( full compression) Ball (12 +)

Sanctioned tournaments stand for the events that are part of Tennis Australia calendar.

Ranking Points are awarded for successfull play at these events. The number of points awarded depends on the level of the event. The level is ranging from White to Platinum.

All of these events are based on a "Knock Out Draw" with some events offering a Consolation Draw.  A consolation draw offers those players that do not make it through the first round an opportunity to play an additional match to ensure that trip (often quite long) is worth it.

As outlined on the left, ALL 10 & under Tennis Australia sanctioned events MUST use GREEN ball. This is optional at 12 & under events so the type of ball varies depending on the region but we are hoping that GREEN ball will be mandatory hopefully from 2014 to make sure that young players play longer rallies and eventually become more tactically aware.

All tournaments must be booked online and generally at least one week before the start of the event.
