 compass rose

Hi All 

Tennis Sydney is excited to announce the return of the Compass Singles Tournament. This year, naming rights go to our major sponsor, mpV, and we have a new venue in Cintra Park offering up to 12 synthetic courts for the day’s play.

This day is the Tennis Sydney major fundraiser for our charities in 2012 and marks World AIDS Day as we honour and remember those whom we have lost to AIDS and to stand in support of those in our community living with HIV.

This event will fill quickly! Please see entry details below.

For those new to a compass draw, following is a brief description of how it works. 

All players start in one single draw, ranked 1-64, “the EAST” draw. In round one, seeded player 1 plays 64, 2 plays 63 etc. After round 1, the draw is split, winners remain in the EAST draw, non-winners move to the next draw (WEST). Then we play again, 1 plays 32, 2 plays 31, etc, in East. In the newly created WEST draw, player 33 plays 64, 34 plays 63 etc. The draw keeps splitting (winners one way, non-winners another) for 3 more rounds, until there is 8 separate draws, E, NE, N, NW, W, SW, S, SE. (hence a Compass)

compass plan


If there are no walkovers/withdrawals, every player is guaranteed 4 sets. If you make the semi of your [8th of the] draw, you will play 5 sets, and if you make the final, you will play 6 sets. 

Ultimate glory goes to the EAST winner (who is undefeated) and to the EAST runner-up (who has lost only to the EAST winner). Tournament ranking continues from EAST (ranks 1-8) anti clockwise through NORTHEAST (ranks 9-16), NORTH (ranks 17-24), NORTHWEST (ranks 25-32), WEST (rank 33-40), SOUTHWEST (ranks 41-48), SOUTH (ranks 49-56), then finally at SOUTHEAST.(ranks 57-64).
