Welcome to the Bayside Regional Tennis Association website. This site has been set up to facilitate communication between the Association and its member clubs and tennis players.

The Bayside Regional Tennis Association Inc. (BRTA) comprises over 80 tennis clubs and also numerous night tennis teams primarily located in the suburbs of Melbourne on the eastern side of Port Phillip Bay.

The Association was formed in August 2000 by the merger of the Caulfield Carrum Tennis Association Inc. (founded in 1921) and the Southern Districts Tennis Association Inc. (founded in 1925). The Association promotes, encourages and advances the game of Tennis within the Bayside region, and co-ordinates the activities of its members. It arranges and manages tennis competitions between teams representing member clubs, and fosters the development of junior tennis through competitions and coaching schemes.

PAYMENTS BY DIRECT DEPOSIT TO THE BRTA BANK ACCOUNT
A number of clubs are now taking advantage of the ability to make payments via direct deposits to the BRTA bank account. If you wish to use this payment method, would you please note that it is ESSENTIAL to include a description with the direct deposit so that it can be identified. The description must include: 
(1) the name of the club (abbreviated if necessary but must uniquely identify the club), and
(2) what the payment is for, for example team fees or an invoice number.

There have been several direct deposits which have had inadequate descriptions or no descriptions. Please be careful with abbreviations, and be aware that a description such as "ATC", "CTC" or "CPTC" etc may not uniquely identify a club. Any amounts which cannot be identified will be held in a separate suspense account within the BRTA accounting system.

ADVERSE WEATHER BY-LAW
The paragraph in By-Law 12 regarding adverse weather was amended at a Special General Meeting held on 17th October 2011. The amended wording is as follows:

"In the case of wet days, the away team Captain may contact the home team Captain or authorised representative of the home club, to determine if their courts are playable that day. If both Captains agree to abandon play for the day, the home team will advise the Association that the game was a washout and points will be divided equally between both teams."

Under the previous wording, both teams were required to attend at the venue, and play could not be abandoned until 60 minutes after the stipulated starting time.

The amended by-law is effective immediately. Note that the visiting team should not contact the home team until 1 (one) hour before the starting time of the match.
