TOURNAMENTS

There are many different tournaments you can participate in throughout the year and you don’t have to be an advanced player to play. Each of the tournaments have different divisions to accommodate all skill levels. There is a tournament fee that covers the cost of supplies, awards/prizes and court rental.

GLTA Tennis Tournaments
The Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA) sanctions tennis tournaments all over the world, in places like Canada, USA, England, Italy, Germany and Australia. These tournaments allow you to earn points towards your ranking. The Canadian Gay Open (CGO) is our international tournament and takes place in May during the Victoria Day long weekend. This is Canada's largest GLTA sanctioned tournament and attracts over 150 participants. 

TLGTA Tournaments
With the exception of CGO, most of TLGTA's tournaments have smaller draw sizes, smaller entry fees and are held at the North York Winter Tennis Club.  

TLGTA Points
Players will receive TLGTA points based on their participation in TLGTA Singles Tournaments. Each division has a point allocation as outlined below. Starting from 2016, TLGTA will keep a running total of points for each participant.  TLGTA points are calculated using the sum of your last 4 TLGTA singles tournaments.

GayTP Ranking 
Your GayTP ranking is determined by which number is higher, your TLGTA Points or your GLTA Tournament Entry points.  The higher number is used to determine which division you can play in and seeding.  Players can play in higher divisions than their point allocation, but they may not play in a lower division. The tournament director will have final say on your division.
