ITF World Seniors 35+ Championships


World Senior (35-55) and Super-Senior (60-85+) Tennis Championships are held annually under the auspices of the International Tennis Federation (ITF).  From 2015, these will be split into three Divisions: 35-45, 50-60 & 65+.  More details on how the teams and individual championships are run can be found on the ITF website...

ITF World Team Championships

ITF World Individual Championships


As with all ITF Seniors tournaments the individual and team competitions are divided into 5 year age groups. Australian teams have competed at these Championships since 1973.


Australian Team Selection


Each year four panels of selectors are elected to choose the male and female Australian teams to compete at the Senior and Super-Senior World Team Championships. Their aim is to select the best teams possible from the Australian players who nominate.  Tennis Seniors Australia has a set of selection criteria which the committee uses in the selection process and there is a corresponding appeals process that players can follow if they fail to gain selection.  Players wish to nominate for consideration for an Australian team can do so via an on-line form.
