Every year I take part in a tennis fantasy game, which is run by the charity, Tennis For Free. Their fantasy game covers the four Grand Slams where you pick a team of 10 ATP and WTA players and score points depending on their progression through the tournament. This year I have decided to set up a league and invite all my readers to join in too.
How do you join?
1) Firstly head over to the TFF Dream Team site HERE
2) Click on “Register” at the top of the page. You will need to enter a username and password and will then be asked whether you want to donate money to their charity. It’s not compulsory and you can play for free; however donations will make you eligible to win prizes. If you donate £3, you get entered into their prize draw for the Australian Open to win a tennis racquet and if you donate £5 or more, you get entered into the TFF Champion’s Race. This is basically a league comprising of the four Slams and the top ten players at the end of the year win prizes. I was lucky enough to come 2nd overall a few years back and won a signed tennis racquet by Andy Murray! The year after that I finished in the top 10 and won a t-shirt and hoody so the prizes are winnable.
3) Next you enter your team name and pick your team. It’s pretty simple and will not take you much time at all. You have to pick ten ATP players and ten WTA players, keeping to a budget of £50. You can keep changing your team up till the deadline at Midnight on Sunday. Full rules are given HERE
4) I have set up a personal league entitled, “Moo’s Tennis Blog” for people to enter. To join the Moo’s Tennis Blog league, go to your homepage and click on the “My Group” label. You will then need to enter a password which is the following: aa73d7f026224bd13a5cdc1cb52ec86e. And then you’re in!
