2012 Country Pennants
Country Premier League Pathway:
The concept is to emulate and further develop the successful model used in the running of the Sydney Competitions by connecting country tennis competitions with a strong brand, to be named Country Pennant, and create a competition pathway for country players through brand recognition that will strengthen over time. A representative country team will be selected to compete in the City vs Country final at Homebush in January 2012.
In 2012 it is intended that the Premier League pathway will also include the following events:
- 10 & under Green Ball competition
- 16 & under
- C- Country Pennant
- B- Country Pennant
- Seniors- Country Pennant
This will give players of ALL standards the opportunity to participate in a state-wide pathway. This exciting initiative is set to commence in January/February 2012.
53 Country Associations/Clubs are running Country Pennant across NSW this year.
There is one open grade this year with 2 men & 2 women being eligible to progress.
