Newsletter of the week (27 July)

Welcome back to another semester! Here are some key info on our upcoming events:

๐ŸŽพ Internal Comp Grading ๐ŸŽพ

Once again, we are holding the weekly doubles internal competition this semester!

Matches will be held on either Tuesday (advanced) or Thursday nights (intermediate) at 6-8pm or 8-10pm.

ALL new players or intermediate players wishing to be graded advanced will need to attend either session next week to be graded.

Past players are not required to attend, and will be offered registration at their previous grade via email.

Grading sessions: Tuesday 30th July (6-8pm) or Thursday 1st August (6-8pm)

๐Ÿ† Uni Nationals Trials ๐Ÿ†

The 2019 Australian Uni Nationals is coming up in September on the Gold Coast.

For the first time ever, Melbourne University is heading to the nationals as defending champions for BOTH Menโ€™s and Womenโ€™s Tennis.

Our first two rounds of tryouts will be on next week!

When: Friday, August 2nd (6-9pm) & Sunday, August 4th (9am-12pm)
Where: The University of Melbourne Tennis Courts

Attendance to one of these tryouts is MANDATORY to be in the running for team selection. If you cannot attend for some strict reason, please email melbunitennis@gmail.com at your earliest convenience.

Tryouts are open to everyone but our expectations for team selection will be for pennant players in grades 4 and above, or high level tournament players and high level international players. 6 men and 6 women will be selected to train in the nationals squad leading up to the Uni nationals.

This is the apex of Australian University Tennis and all selected players will be training in the nationals squad for free along with many other perks of the program. We strongly suggest that all people that attend tryouts be 100% fully committed to the program and to tick off some of the expectations above.

Next Club Hitting Session

Social Club Hitting will resume Week 2 of this semester on Friday 9th August (2-6pm).

Come down for a casual hit - racquets and balls will be provided.
