- most established local competitions are Grade 4 (NE confined events, championships, tour events), with the exception of the Stewart Milne NE Indoor Championships (at Aberdeen Tennis Centre) over the Christmas/New Year break, which is a Grade 3.
- Ranking points are available at Grade 5 and above. Ratings matches/‘wins’ are available in any competition result submitted to the LTA.
- Recommendation- District players should be targeting Grade 4 and 3 tournaments, prioritising local events (where sensible)
- Play both singles and doubles where possible
- Competition search HERE - it is good to get the players doing this
- TENNIS SCOTLAND OPEN TOUR (incorporating Scottish National Championships)
- See attached poster for information.
- Aberdeen Tennis Centre (Westburn) is hosting a local stage (TS300) on Saturday 26th Oct (2pm – 6/7pm).
- TS300 (standalone events)
- Aberdeen Tennis Centre (ATC) will schedule TS300 events over the winter as a trial to see if our local player base is keen to play. These will replace the yellow ball match plays which NESLTA have previously organised and ran at ATC. will still get games which will ‘count’ towards their rating but not ranking (as it is Grade 6 competition), which is the same as a ‘Matchplay’ format.
- Considering the new player rating system (World Tennis Number- info here) the LTA are implementing from April 2020, the TS300 format will provide match ups that will count/contribute towards each players new rating/WTN. The new system has several advantages including…
- A more accurate system based on a mathematical calculation to reflect the playing standard of each player irrespective of where they play and which competitions they play in
- A dynamic system which will change on a regular basis to give a ‘real time’ playing standard of each player and allow players to better track their progress
- A system which is gender and age neutral and rates all players on the same scale
