20th of May to 10th of September
On this Saturday, May 20, men’s and women’s ÖTV Bundesliga will start its 2017 outdoor tennis season, hosted by the Austrian Tennis Federation! At the top of Austrias tennis league system, two groups of six teams will play in a round robin format – each team plays every other team of the same group once. Only four teams, the best two of each group, will advance to the Final Four Play-Offs to compete for the national title in early September. The remaining teams from rank 3 to 5 of each group will have to play in a merged round-robin relegation tournament in June to save their spot in the 1. Bundesliga.
With this tight schedule of only four matches per team in the next five weeks, a good start is key for all teams to avoid the relegation tournament and ultimately to get a shot for the title! Therefore, tension will be high this Saturday, May 20, when play starts at 11 AM CET.
