UPDATE - OPEN & JUNIOR COMPETITIONS SUMMER 2015-16
Posted: 19 October 2015
Tennis Australia is still working on resolving the issues with their new scoring system. In order for match scores to be entered all players must register via the Tennis Australia website: www.tennis.com.au , then click on the 'JOIN' tab in the top left corner of the page and then the 'Join with email' option.
If players do not register via the Tennis Australia website as per the instructions above, the team captains / managers can manually add a player to their team via the Match Centre 'Dashboard' but will need to know the player's email address and date of birth (DOB) to enable this registration to be done.
Players can register now and captains / team managers can also start adding players to their teams immediately.
We will post another notice on this page when we are confident that the new system is ready for scores to be entered.
Additional information regarding using this new scoring system can be found at: support.tennis.com.au
IMPORTANT NOTICE - OPEN & JUNIOR COMPETITIONS SUMMER 2015-16
Posted: 12 October 2015
Due to technical problems with the new Tennis Australia scoring system 'League Manager' captains and team managers are currently unable to enter any results for the current season. Please note that we are not the only association experiencing this problem, so we have been asked to be patient while the problems with the new system are rectified. We are hopeful that it will be rectified within the next two (2) weeks.
So as an interim measure would all team captains and team managers please hold onto all scoresheets until the new system is working correctly, then all the scores for your teams can be entered at that time. Please do not send the scoresheets to the M&P Committee members as they are also unable to enter the scores at this time.
Please be patient as we work through this issue. The important thing to remember is that this issue won't stop any matches being played.
Note: Draws for the next few rounds of Open Comp have been posted on the 'Competitions' page on this site for easy reference until the new system is working correctly.
