Sutton Tennis Academy is delighted to be staging our first full holiday competition in 2020. With our regular Easter and Summer competitions cancelled due to lockdown and having trialled two small scale October half-term tournaments, we believe that we are now ready to resume a tournament at full-capacity in a Covid-safe environment.

As many regular players and parents will know, Sutton has two indoor court areas – six acrylic courts in the main building and four indoor clay courts in an air-hall. To avoid too many people accumulating in one area, the tournament has been restructured this year and will run along the following lines

 - All main draw events will take place on designated surfaces (either indoor clay or indoor acrylic). There will be a control desk in each area and all players should report only to their designated surface control desk

- The tournament has been extended to a total of nine days this year and will be split into two “blocks” (21st to 24th and 27th to 31st December). Different age group events will run in each block

- Each event will be restricted to a limited number of days – Two days for 10&U and 11&U events. Older age group events may take place over three, four or five days depending on final entry numbers

- We are holding some one-day grade 4, 10&U and 12&U FAST4 events as we appreciate that we have held few events for these age groups since competitions resumed in September 2020. Eligible players can apply for both the grade 3 and grade 4 events if they wish to

- Consolation events will be optional in older age group events (12U to 18&U). These will take place on separate days to main draw matches, avoiding players and parents having to wait around

- Unlike our October half-term tournaments, all events will have realistic provisional draw sizes. We have taken our 2019 Christmas tournament entry numbers into account when setting these

- All events from 11&U upwards will use proper scoring – two standard sets (tiebreak at 6-6) with a match tiebreak at one set all. This does not however apply to 10&U events, nor the additional grade 4 junior events which we are staging in some age groups, which will use FAST4 scoring

- (Added 27/11/2020 following publication of new Covid regulations) Men's and Ladies Open ADULT PRIORITY EVENTS (players born on or before 31/12/2001 accepted as a first priority)

Both Sutton Tennis Academy and TennisUK take your safety and wellbeing very seriously. We welcome your application and look forward to seeing you play in our “new-look” Christmas tournament.
