Welcome to the DVTA 2018 Autumn Season


The DVTA autumn season starts this Monday the 29th of January.

All captains should have been notified by now of ball/light money and where to pick up their home match ball cans by the competition coordinators.
And hopefully most captains will have sent out team rosters etc.

Emergency Players

This season a new procedure for emergency players is being trialled by the committee.
For each match that a non member emergency player fills in $10 will be payable to the club. The payment can be made by the emergency player or by the team (which may be necessary to get your emergency player to help out). If the emergency player joins the club in the same season as the competition these payments will be deducted from the cost of membership.
The money is to be collected by the team captain who will then pay it via direct deposit to the club's account with a description like for example "MNX Red 7 Emerg". The money needs to be paid within a week of the match the emergency player played in.

Insurance Coverage

For non member emergency players to be covered by accident insurance by Tennis Victoria they must be registered with them.
To register for insurance at no cost go to
Enter the details as required and then select the EMERGENCY PLAYER membership. Note: This has no cost and it's not a membership with the club. It only provides registration for insurance purposes.

Interested in being an Emergency Player?

If you would like to be an emergency player or you know someone who would like to play please contact the membership secretary on and state your name, phone number and your approximate skill level (ie, starter, intermediate or advanced) and your name will be put on secure list that only team captains will have access to.
Club members are preferred but non-members are welcome too.

Team Captains

Before Monday night you will be notified via SMS of the new code for the court and club house keys. This code will also allow access to which will list all available emergency players.

That's about it. Good luck everyone!
