Overview

Blackburn & District Night Tennis Association (www.bdnta.com)

This is the On-Line Results Entry & Match Information system of the BDNTA.

Updated: 12th August 2020

Our next season will be called the 2020/2021 Summer Season.

Pending an easing of COVID19 restrictions and a permitted return to inter-club competition tennis, the season will start in approximately mid to late October.

Season Dates will be confirmed in due course once more information becomes available with regard to the pathway for a return to competition tennis.

Our intention is to offer a full length season plus finals in a time-frame similar to usual weekend summer competitions.

Answers to some FAQs

1.       All SETS in the BDNTA are first to six games, with a tie-breaker to be played at 5 games all.

2.       TROLS RESULTS ENTRY for tie-break sets: 6/5 to the WINNING team.

3.       All BDNTA TIE-BREAKERS are the traditional 12 point tie-break: first to 7 points with a margin of at least 2 points.

(eg. A winning score could be 7/3 or 7/5 etc., but if the tie-break scores reach 6 points all, then the tie-break continues until one team is at least 2 points ahead)

4.       Players must not play for more than one club during the same season on the same playing night.

i.e. If Joe Blogs plays for Blackburn on Tuesday nights then he cannot play for another club on Tuesday nights during the same season.

Finals Eligibility: 2020/2021 Summer Season

Players must play at least 3 matches during the home/away season in order to qualify for finals for a particular night.

Being named in a complete washout/heatout/blackout does not qualify as a match played towards finals eligibility.

(N.B. A complete washout/heatout/blackout is a match in which not a single game in any set has been completed)

When a team receives a forfeit, only the players named for the team winning by forfeit will count towards finals eligibility.

(i.e. The team losing by forfeit cannot name players)

Match Fees: 2020/2021 Summer Season

The cost per team shall be:

$32.00 per night (i.e. $8.00 per player per match) for all Doubles Only Sections payable to the Venue Club.

$30.00 per night (i.e. $10.00 per player per match) for Thursday Singles/Doubles Sections payable to the Venue Club.
