Some players may have been re-graded or omitted from events where they've entered Opens and a round robin event as Opens players are ineligible to enter round robin events.

A few things to remember:

  • This is a tournament, and will be played under tournament conditions meaning in the case of inclement weather best efforts will be made to play matches, which could include delaying match start times. You should check the tournament page for updates https://tournaments.tennis.com.au/sport/tournament.aspx?id=0D5621AD-FA07-49C2-ABC3-8D9A02ECAC44 BEFORE contacting the Tournament Director
  • You must arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled start time. Late arrivals may result in forfiets from the entire event.
  • If you owe your entry fee or Tennis Macarthur membership, please have your fee ready to be paid when you check in for your first match. We only accept CASH payments.
  • Withdrawals after the release of the draw are not entitled to an entry fee refund, and where the fee is unpaid, the full fee will remain due and payable to the tournament.

If you have any questions please contact the Tournament Director Michael Jackson on 0413 632 632 (send an SMS if you can not get in contact).
