Midweek Tennis holds a number of different tournaments during the year.
Melbourne Cup Tournament
November – Melbourne Cup Tuesday
Enjoy a fun tennis tournament with a Melbourne Cup theme! Wear a fun hat and bring gold coins for the sweepstake!
This tournament is played in November. This is a ‘top and tail’ tournament where more experienced players are paired with newer players.
This Memorial Cup is in memory of a Karori resident and tennis player who, along with her family, died in an air accident while returning from Nelson.
Rosebowl, Murgatroyd Plate & Val Dickson Cup
The Rosebowl and Murgatroyd Plate tournament is played in March. This is a handicapped tournament suitable for interclub and more experienced players. The tournament starts at 9.00 and players must be prepared for a late finish.
The Val Dickson Cup has taken on a new format from due to a lack of numbers entering in the past few years. This will now be held in February as a fun tournament with random pairings changing for each round, with a final deciding round involving the top points scorers.
Val Dickson, an Australian who played and thoroughly enjoyed her time at the club, donated the Cup to the Club.
