Anyone here competing in Tennis australia?
Tell us your name and share your profile!!
Hmm I was gonna start a thread like this, but didn't think it would be too popular. I'm 16, played a few Rankings tourneys this year, didn't do so well.
When you played in the tourney for specials doubles, is this you?
Ajam R / Del Pozo J?
uhh sorry, no that wasnt me. ^^
even though this thread is probably dead played a few W.A tournaments did alright =/
sorry if i double posted internet had another sad -_-
ok maybe third time lucky..
I'd love this thread to be a regular/
im from an australian junior, just played the eastern region tourny in melb, lost in first round though xD
Eyyz I played that to
But 1st round exit.. Though I got to 3rd round in Consol, I couldv'e made the semis I reckon..
Got a rank Lolza?
Hmmmm Eastern States Tournaments are quite difficult especially the Melbourne ones..well the one our school takes us to anyway. -_-
yea they are.. I think they are the toughest down here but there are much more of them to play
lol i lost first round of 18s in eastern regions to. gonna give up tourneys for a while. played 4, and have only made it past the first round once. give up tourneys, concentrate on year 12 i'll play some tourneys later in the year when i can drive places i cant wait.
gud Idea man this the crucial point of school.. If ur losing give up for a bit.
U still have G14 pennant
baghdatis i wonder how u got to 3rd round of consol??? i just wonder??
ok d.dokas.. don't be a smartass
lol g14 pennant is **** thats what i get for joining a club with 3 pennant teams. wantirna's highest pennant team is pennant 6. how lame.
whos playing any tournament soon.... team tennis metropolitan championships?
ya i am.. possible 2nd round encounter betweek us :lol:
yea kinda same at My club east coburg.
supposed to be 3 teams grade 2/3 i think. a grade 9 and there was gana be a grade 13 but 2 players were unreliable so there was no team
I might get sum emergency matches in g9 though.
yehh, if i dont move up to like pennant 9 or higher next season, i reckon i'll move clubs in search of a higher pennant grade! should do well this season.
its possible baghdatis lol
lol. next tourney i probably will play will be like...
schoolboys at the end of the year. might play a bit of dubs in between then.
schoolboys thats a long way off lol...isnt that in like november december?
I still think the amount of tournaments in Australia has much to be desired. the lack of tournaments really affects how far you can get and therefore your ranking. Apparently in France there is 5000 tournaments a year so you could be playing what like 4 tournys a month?! Anyway for pennants I think ill be about divy 4 for 14s this year or divy 6 for 16s
wow 5000 tournies
u can go to 1 lose first round go to the other on the same day and win maybe lol
how many of you guys are ranked?
rules say u cant have more than one tourny at the same period of time
So far we have:
Kicker magic= yes
D.Dokas=?? R u?
baghdatis=?? waitingg for next rankings to come out but doubtful Stupid TA
Nyone else want to join?
yehh its in december. but im in year 12 this year. so schoolboys will be after end of year exams, so its a good time. i'll play like schoolboys, frankston, everything there is to play cos i can drive myself there i'll just concentrate on pennant and school tennis for sports for now.
whats this for??? people who have got rankings? stupid... i made r16 of schoolboys end of last year and i didnt get a ranking for it. lame AS. shoudlve gotten like 6 points. im still annoted
well it's the ozzies we have in the thread,
and whether they are ranked or not..
nah no ranking yet... got pretty close once
ok keep trying n u'll get there soon. More tournies increases ur chances..
hey guys i will be moving to Melbourne soon and i was wondering what the league is there that i could join. If you guys could provide information. I am 15 years old, and i don't know what the league is over there.
Play pennant mate. Season starts start of May I'm pretty sure, ends about September. If you're a good 16s player you would usually see yourself in Grade 7-4 I'd say thats about right. A really good 16s player maybe 4-2 and if your Marvin Barker (15yo) State Grade number 2! lol. It goes up to Grade 17 or something I think, and all the way to State Grade which is top tennis. You play a Singles Rubber every odd week and 2 doubles rubbers on the even. Great comp, bit of travel though, so try get some older blokes who can drive you!
Whereabouts in Melbourne are you moving?
I'm 18, not sure if I'm still a junior lol. sick of the lack of tennis in my parts anyway.
Hey, Where abouts in Melb?? Saw ur vid.. u shud play some Optus hunior tour tournies for ranking points. U'll alright in the 16's. U could also get into a pennnant team.
Maybe we shud have a hit some time
It actually only goes up to 14 this year. I will probably get afew matches in grade 9 this year.
What grade u playing for Dendy?
lol. who wants to have a hit sometime at wantirna tennis club or templeton tennis club?
if you live somewhere crazy like sandringham we can have a hit at melbourne park, like me and duzza did
Lol I was going up and down that area almost all of last week with the ERT tourney.
Anyone of those clybs have hard or synthetic grass courts.. ATm i am pretty sick and tired of bloody en tout cas
templeton has syn grass courts. wanna have a hit there sometime?
yea why not, atm I am really busy, so ptobably not these holifays
but we can organise for later on..
I am actually playing wantirna tennis club in pennant this seasonon..
Where do u play penant?
Also, I'm in Coburg so it's pretty far for me..I reckon..
lol yehh. oh well. im playing pennant at wantirna maybe i'll see you there sometime. you'll be playing my friend in grade 9 then. hes pretty good.
Cool, good luck in G9, played that two years ago and now I'm in 3! When I was playing G9 I filled in one week for G4 and got spanked 2 and 3 and next year I'm in G4 thinking what the hell is going on haha......
ya I'm still not sure if i'l even play that week but I hope I do
Got a tournament on the 14th. Hopefully I'll get a good draw so my ranking will jump instead of the pitiful one I have at the moment -_-. When you guys are talking about Pennants this is the winter Pennant that your talking about right?
what tournament are u playing kicker magic?
Um just a small one unless you've been to Perth you probably wouldn't know. Anyway it's the Hensman Park Junior Tournament.
wat club u play for in perth? apparently in melbourne theres only 1 season of pennants and thats the winter one....in perth there is both summer and winter
I play for Applecross at the moment but I might be changing. Oh only one season I thought especially In the eastern states that they would have 2. I guess there 1 season must go for much longer.
nah its just like winter pennants in perth maybe a tad longer
