Dear Club Members,
We are pleased to offer Club members the opportunity to take part in some friendly tournaments kindly organised by our coach, John Garland, on Sunday mornings in September. Furthermore, if there are sufficient entries in any category for a healthy competition (ie at least a semi-final/final), the Club Committee will declare the tournament as the Club Championship for this season. The dates will be:
- 6 September for Mens Singles and Ladies Singles, with finals on 13 September
- 13 September for Ladies Doubles, with finals on 20 September
- 20 September for Mens Doubles, with a final on 27 September
- 27 September for Mixed Doubles, with a final on the same day
All Sunday morning sessions will start at 09:30 and aim to finish by 13:00. If you would like to take part in these tournaments, please send an email to John using this e-mail address:
Please enter ASAP so that John will know the number of players attending, preferably up to 8 for the Singles competitions, and can organise a suitable format to give everyone some matches. For the Doubles competitions, please agree with your partner who is going to send the email to John so we don’t have duplicate entries! If anyone want to enter a doubles competition without a partner please state in the e-mail and we will do our best to pair people up.
If we have to cancel for bad weather on a Sunday morning, John will email competitors with a proposed alternative or we may have to abandon that tournament.
Please be aware that we will still be operating our Covid-19 precautions, so the Club will not be providing any refreshments – please bring everything you need to survive a morning’s tennis! We will not be awarding Club cups for the tournament winners, as their friendly tournaments, but I hope you’ll just enjoy the tennis!
