Local Qualifying Events

Why Qualifying?

Qualifying allows the county championship to be opened up to everyone in Kent enabling us to ensure the competition is appropriate and enjoyable for all.  

 

A new look qualifying

Kent Tennis want to make the County Championships a true festival of tennis ensuring it is appropriate and enjoyable for all that participate aiming to attract local players who typically wouldn’t enter the county championships. Due to the size of the county, with its significant player base, we have created a new look County Championships which includes qualifying events across the county. 

 

Qualifying events will be run as a Grade 3 Qualifying Event and will receive qualifying ranking points. Those that win their qualifying draw would qualify through to the County Championships Main Draw starting on Monday 23rd August. The number of linked spaces will be dependent on the number of entries received.

Do i enter Qualifying or Main Draw?

The criteria for entry is based on the following descriptors, allowing player to choose which they enter.

 

Qualifying:       Aimed at players who are new to competition, traditionally play in matchplay or grade 5 events.

Main Draw:     Aimed at players who compete regularly, traditionally playing in Grade 4 events and above.
