Join us for the first American Doubles Tournament of the new year on Sunday 31st January.
Players of all abilities have a chance to compete with a number of different partners in a round robin format. It is also a great opportunity to bring along a friend. Everyone welcome!
As a reminder, diagnosis
the format of American Doubles is as follows:
- Mixed doubles play
- 7 rounds of 7 games are played
- Players have different partners each time, sick with winners playing with losers from previous rounds
- Tennis balls and score cards are provided
- Prizes are awarded at the end to the winners – best lady, illness best man, and the runners up
And now for the boring part – the RULES:
Please bear in mind that multiples of mixed FOURS are needed for the format to work. The last names on the list will be deemed to be reserves until they make up a complete FOUR and may be asked to stand down if that is not possible. There are six all-weather tennis courts available, so places are limited to 24.
Don’t wait too long! Put your name on the list NOW!
Play starts at
12.30pm with entry from 12.15pm. The entry fee is
£8 per person.
To enter contact Peter on 07549 613 860

See you on court!
