What is Pennant?
The Walking Clinic Pennant is an inter-club tournament open to adults in the ACT. The competition is held in several seasons throughout the year and on various days of the week. Sign-ups are advertised at several times throughout the year.
It is a great way to represent the ANU Tennis Club within the local community and practise playing competitively. Players participate in similar-skilled teams. Teams are placed in divisions, which are decided by the external ACT Pennant coordinator.
You should contact our Competitions Coordinator if you are interested in Pennant. They will be able to advise which grade best suits your skills and help you find a team within the club, and answer any questions you might have.
Pennant is a fantastic opportunity to play more tennis, however it is a substantial commitment. The season is spread out over several months and overlaps with ANU semester time, possibly including exam periods. Please keep this in mind when signing up. If you do not manage your time effectively to consistently attend training and matches, it is unfair that the whole team should suffer. Also note that your team needs to negotiate among themselves who will play each week.
Unless otherwise notified by the Club, all home games are at the ANU South Oval Tennis Courts.
Away games will have their locations specified on the draw.
Pennant fees are charged per team per season. Teams are responsible for splitting the cost.
The cost includes match tennis balls and court hire for home and away matches.
Notably the cost of transport to matches will not be covered, and you are responsible for organising this transport yourself.
