Gloucester District Tennis Association will host the 2019 Ray White Gloucester Seniors' Tournament over the weekend of April 26 to 28, 2019.

Over the three days, over 100 of the State's top senior players will compete.

The event is sanctioned by Tennis Seniors NSW in affiliation with Tennis Seniors Australia and Tennis New South Wales.

The main objective of Tennis Seniors NSW is to promote tennis participation in New South Wales for players over 35 years of age.

All you need is to be able to play tennis.

The tennis is competed in a socially competitive environment.

Players compete for points and travel all over the state. Players complete in age groups from 35 and over through to 70 and over.

Another twist is that players can join in "aged combined" events. This means that a 35-year-old can partner with a 60-year-old.

One of the unique features of this tournament is that you can enter an event on Saturday morning and it is finished on Saturday morning.

Each event is a round robin so the results are decided at the end of the round and not in a final.

Play commences at 10am on Friday April 26, when the men's and women's singles events are scheduled.
