The move to an online only resource allows any changes to clubs, teams and scheduling to be updated in real time.

This initiative, combined with the enhanced player engagement supported via the national competition software, Match Centre, will continue to modernise and improve both the club and player experience of this great competition. This digital Pennant handbook is still your all-in-one resource ahead of the 2018 season with all your essential competition information. Following consultation with clubs and players, the 2018 season also sees the minimum playing age of the Men’s Masters Doubles reduced to 35 and over, while the Men’s Open Doubles category has been withdrawn. The 2018 season has 131 clubs competing, with 417 teams involving 4,000+ players and an amazing 14,500+ rubbers played at tennis courts across the greater Melbourne area.

Tennis Victoria Pennant remains the longest running and largest interclub competition in Australia. We’re proud of this high quality, unique competition and the wide range of playing standards and formats that we cater for. I would like to thank all participating clubs, administrators, volunteers, players, parents and officials for your on-going support of Tennis Victoria Pennant, and wish everyone the best of luck for a successful and enjoyable 2018 Pennant season.

Kind regards, Matthew Kennedy Chief Executive Officer

6 7 WHAT IS PENNANT? The Tennis Victoria Pennant competition for both the men’s and women’s draw is played over 14 weeks for 8 team sections where each team plays each other twice. For 6 team sections the competition is played over 15 weeks where each team plays each other 3 times. Singles and doubles are played on alternate weeks, with all rubbers played as the best of three tiebreak sets. At the conclusion of the home and away rounds the Pennant Sectional Finals will be played. In an 8 team section the teams finishing in first to fourth positions will play-off as follows 1v4, 2v3 and in a 6 team section the team finishing first will proceed straight into the Grade Finals Series and the teams finishing second and third will play-off.

The winners of these playoff matches will proceed to the Grade Finals Series and be seeded to compete in a series of knock out finals to ultimately playoff in their Grade Grand Final to win their Pennant grade. Tennis Victoria Pennant also offers Men’s Masters 35+ doubles competition where in a 8 team grade the Grade Finals Series will see teams finishing in first to fourth play off 1v4, 2v3 and in a 6 team grade the team finishing first will proceed straight to the Grade Grand Final and the teams finishing second and third playoff with the winner advancing to the Grade Grand Final.

Men’s Masters 35+ doubles is played as best of two tiebreak sets and a ten point match tiebreak played at one set all to decide the rubber. Men’s Masters 35+ doubles also change playing partners for the reverse doubles rubbers. 2017 PENNANT RESULTS GRADE WINNER RUNNERS UP Men’s Grade 1 Kooyong #1 5-11-100 Glenburn 2-8-89 Grade 2 Heatherdale 4-10-85 Pakenham Regional 2-5-62 Grade 3 Ashburton Uniting Church 4-10-82 Eaglemont 3-7-82 Grade 4 East Coburg #1 4-11-112 Uniting Church 4-11-101 Grade 5 Donvale 4-10-84 Glencairn 3-6-75 Grade 6 Greensborough 4-11-90 Ashburton Uniting Church 3-9-102 Grade 7 Grace Park Hawthorn #2 5-10-75 East Coburg 1-3-55 Grade 8 Glenburn 5-10-70 Kooyong 3-7-75 Grade 9 Hawthorn 5-11-97 Holy Saviour 3-9-94 Grade 10 Taylors Lakes 4-10-92 Langwarrin 3-9-86 Women’s Grade 1 Centre Court Indoor 4-10-70 Bundoora 1-4-55 Grade 2 Kooyong #1 5-11-94 Hawthorn 2-7-82 Grade 3 MCC Glen Iris Valley #2 5-10-68 Centre Court Indoor 1-3-39 Grade 4 Knox City 4-10-72 Liston 2-4-60 Grade 5 Bulleen 4-10-78 West Brunswick 2-5-55 Men’s Open Doubles Grade 1 Kooyong 2-6-44 St Mary’s Greensborough 0-2-38 Men’s Masters 45+ Doubles Grade 1 Legend Park 2-6-36 Kooyong #2 0-1-20 Grade 2 Dendy Park 2-5-41 Royal Park 2-5-36 Grade 3 Geelong Lawn 2-5-38 Greenvale 2-4-34
