Gill Quillinan Memorial Charity Event 2021

Unfortunately, the WDTA Midweek Ladies' Division committee were unable to hold this annual Charity Event again this year.

We were extremely saddened to have to cancel this much-enjoyed event, not to mention the opportunity to support a worthy cause -
The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. 

Flick Nolan (Life Member) and Vermont South Tennis Club had once again offered use of their courts.


Line Calls

Please ensure that all players in your team are aware of the following and play accordingly:-

"If any part of the ball touches any outside part of the line, no matter how minimal, the ball is deemed IN.
If you are unsure, all line calls must be to the benefit of the OPPOSITION."


40 Year Commemoration of the WDTA Midweek Ladies Division

Last year we were hoping to celebrate our 40 year mark at the 2020 AGM.   Unfortunately due to Lockdowns this could not eventuate.  Instead the WDTA Midweek Ladies Division commemorated the event by gifting the ladies in participating teams quality WDTA sunvisors which were handed out at the recent 2021 AGM.

  • may still play for their own club as an emergency.

Special Pool Emergency Rules applicable for Finals:

All Pool Emergencies (with the exception of Section 7) are not permitted to play in their personal grade during Finals (irrespective of how many matches they have played in that grade).  They are only permitted to play above their personal grade in Finals.  A request MUST be made to Record Secretary prior to using ANY Pool Emergencies in Finals.

The Pool Emergency List is being updated ready for Season 1 2022 and will be available mid January on this website page.  It will include phone numbers and availability (see above).

WDTA Midweek Ladies Committee 2021/22

History of the Lorraine Clark Memorial Perpetual Trophy

The Lorraine Clark Memorial Perpetual Trophy is awarded to the winner of the lowest section in the WDTA Mid-week Ladies competition each season.  It is an encouragement award, commenced in her honour in 2001.

Lorraine Clark was on the founding committee for the Mid-week Ladies Competition and became the inaugural President.  WDTA Ladies commenced with 14 participating Clubs and she served as President for 6 years and remained on the general committee until 1991 when she was awarded Life Membership.  It is pleasing to note that our Mid-week ladies competition has expanded over the years, and currently has 37  Clubs participating. Lorraine attended the Gill Quillan tournament in July 2014 but sadly passed away in December 2014.
