Oldies but Goldies

Although Edgemead Tennis Club is largely composed of younger players, and a lot of emphasis is naturally placed on junior tennis, a few of its "more mature" members enjoy playing the Seniors circuit.

Anybody over 30 can be classed as a senior and enter tournaments in the age groups 30-35, 36-40, 41-45 46-50, 51-55, 56-60, 61-65, 66-70, 71-75 and 75+.

The tournaments are great fun and most of them are well supported. The SWD tournament held annually in George in December is probably the best one and very well organised with players combining their holidays with some tennis. Last year saw an entry of about 160 players from all over SA.

The level of tennis is quite high with most players on a par with WP's 3rd mixed league and upwards. So, not too many easy matches !

There is also a ranking system per age group which can be viewed here (Opens in a new window). The Seniors Tournament calendar can be downloaded here (Opens in a new window).
