Other information to note of particular importance is the dates for the F/J Grade competition. The F/J Grades will compete from midday Thursday 28th - Saturday 30th September.

The hosts Hawke’s Bay Lawn Tennis Squash Club are behind this trial and we wish to have all districts support this initiative where possible.
