Following on from a successful event in 2017, it has been decided to hold this year’s club championship finals day on Saturday 8th September (with Sunday 9th as a reserve date in case of rain).
It would be great to see as many members as possible entering our club championships. For our new members here is a brief resume of the format. Members enter the competition(s) of their choice. The five main competitions (Ladies’ and Men’s Singles, Ladies’ and Men’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles) are knockouts i.e. the winning player progresses to the next round. All those who do not win the first match are automatically entered into the plate competitions for the relevant categories and a draw is made again for a knockout competition. The result is that for all those entering the five main competitions, a minimum of two matches are guaranteed.
Many of you have entered the “Blind Date” competition in previous years and it would be great to see a good entry for this fun competition. This is a mixed doubles competition where your partner will be drawn at random resulting in a great mix in of members. Please consider entering – it is £2 per person and free to anyone who has entered two other competitions. There is also a veterans’ mixed doubles competition for men over 50 and ladies over 45.
2017 saw a wide range of winners and runners up (familiar faces and new stars), great competition on finals day and many interesting matches on the way.
Entry forms are available on the “Events – Club Championships” web-page and in the clubhouse. Please ensure you return your form to Mhairi Peck by Sunday 20th May at the latest.
