LTA Grade 4 tournaments are for players of county standard. However, tournaments at this grade might accept good club standard players too. Grade 4 events count towards a player’s national ranking as well as their World Tennis Number (and Universal Tennis Rating where appropriate).

The boys played an eight player compass tournament, using Fast4 scoring.

1. First to four games wins the set
2. Tiebreaker at 3 games all (3-3)
3. Match tie-break at 1 set all (7pt tie breaker)
4. No ad scoring. If it’s 40-40, next point wins
