Players who are entered in a team are expected to be available for most of the season however if you are away or unavailable sometimes, that is ok, your team will have extra players so you can organise a players' roster. It is not acceptable to pull out mid season unless you have a very good reason. 

  

Note this call is for green ball and yellow ball players only. Orange ball players are welcome to register via the below link but note the season is shorter for Orange Ball players. Full enrolment details for orange ball players will be published as soon as season dates are known.

NEW Players: If you have never played in the Tennis Geelong competition, just give us an indication of your abilities on the registration form and we will contact you to organise a grading session or will liaise with your GLTC coach. If you have been playing or have played in the past, we look at your match centre stats to place you in the most appropriate section.  

 

During your registration, you can request to play with friends. We try to keep friends together whenever possible however this will depend on grading and numbers of players within each grade.
