Club Night Tournaments

Tournament Nights are once a month, on the second TUESDAY of the month.  On the first of the month an entry sheet will be placed on the club notice board. Please put your name down if you want to join in or text Margaret who will put it down for you. Entry £1.

This is a social event and played for prizes on the night. We will not be organising food (if you want food please order your own beforehand.)  It would be nice if people did stay for the prize giving and a drink.

These tournaments are open to all Senior Tennis Members and Intermediates and are based on American style, which rotates players so that you are with different partners during the evening. It would be good to see new members join in.

We like to start at 6.30 prompt so please arrive earlier to pay and find your first partner. We normally finish about 9pm.
If for some reason you are unable to turn up on the night could you please try to find a replacement or phone Margaret Shufflebotham who will do the same. We do need 24 people to make the tournament run smoothly, so if you could be a reserve player, please leave your name and phone number on the sheet. (You may be called at the last minute!)
