Scroungers: a men’s comp where a lot of bantering and friendly rivalry goes on during play on Thursday afternoons. It is extremely popular amongst the guys and a very successful comp. Originally started by Grayden Clack it began in season 2008/9 and has continued to grow. The Whittaker Challenge Series is played each year between Dunsborough and Busselton Tennis Clubs in memory of past member of both clubs Dave Whittaker. Play for Scroungers commences at 2 pm in summer and 1.30 pm in winter. Please contact coordinator Fred (9754 8028) to register your name for play each week.
Sunday Mixed Challenge: The format is a teams event.
What really lifts the format above the other tennis played at the club is he is opening up entries to everyone. All the ranking decisions are to be based on results. Female, male, juniors, members, visitors and casual players are all welcome and will be ranked according results with your age and gender having no bearing on rankings.
There is no minimum skill level required with the exception you need to have a skill/fitness level to cope with the playing of a set of singles. It is hoped that the “Challenge” will appeal to the better players within the club but also to players looking to take their tennis to the next level, there is nothing like a competitive game of singles to improve your game. There is also scope for the stronger juniors to get some big game experience.
To nominate or for more information contact Bryce Godfrey on his email firstname.lastname@example.org
THURSDAY NIGHT MENS TENNIS

The standard is arguably the strongest tennis played week to week, with a mixture of singles and doubles, it caters for strong players, keen to get a regular, solid tennis workout as well as a chance to take their tennis to the next level. There is no restriction placed on playing ability (however, being able to hold your own in a game of singles is recommended). The competition is open to members, guests and casual visitors.
The format involves the playing of one set of singles and two of doubles. Play starts at 7.00pm and depending on the length of the matches, finishes between 9.00 and 9.30pm. There are bar facilities where the evening is ended with a drink or two, discussing the highlights of the evening.
Each night you play against opposition of a similar rank. Depending on the results of the night, your ranking moves up or down. This facilitates playing at a similar standard, and the better you play, the stronger tennis you get.
To play, you need to nominate by 8.00pm on the day before. In the event of odd numbers, it is a last in first out basis.
