Why do we have a different Acceptance criteria in place for Grade 5 competitions?
1 minute

Changing to a first come, first served method of acceptance will simplify the competition entry process for players and parents, provide earlier confirmation of acceptance and make it easier for them to plan tennis competitions alongside other activities.

It will also make local competitions more accessible for players that are new to competition.

Over 200 events piloted first come, first serve as the acceptance method during the 2019 Summer season and the feedback from referees, players and parents was positive. When we spoke to parents via our online community, 65% of parents of junior players thought using an acceptance method of ‘First Come, First Served’ at grade 5 competitions was a good idea.
