Challenge Cup - Against Southern Districts (SDTA)

Co-ordinator Mark Thompson 0403 773 659


The Challenge Cup is an annual one day event which is played on a Sunday each year between junior teams from our association (ISLTA) and Southern Districts Tennis Association (SDTA - Campbelltown area association). 

The event between ISLTA and SDTA has been played annually in November and hosted alternately at each association's home courts.  So the venues are at Illawarra Tennis Centre, Rockdale (71 Chapel St, Rockdale) and in Wests Tennis Club (16 Old Leumeah Road, Leumeah).  The Challenge Cup is for good players (for their age) who have not competed at Interdistrict level in that past year.  This is a representative team which is aimed at developing our good players and exposing them to representative tennis.   Girls and boys teams are formed into teams by age groups of 10 and under, 12 and under, 14 and under & 16 and under.   The day is usually a very well matched event.   Southern Districts won the 2011 event by a whisker.  In 2012, Illawarra was successful in winning back the trophy for our cupboard, and retained the trophy in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 also.

While expressions of interest are welcomed and encouraged, please note that selection is “by invitation” as ISLTA aims to select its best team; the teams are normally selected from those playing in the popular Saturday morning inter-club competition.  Nominations are generally August/ September for the November event.
