About the tournaments

 

Club singles tournament

 

Each year around October the club holds a singles tournament which is played over about three weeks. It is usually played on a knockout basis, although depending on the number of entrants, the first round may be played under a different format.

Once the draw is made, players arrange the matches with each other at a time to suit them, and play a best of three sets match with a championship tie break played as a third set if one set each is won.

Trophies are awarded to all finalists. This tournament will only be held if a sufficient number of players enter.

 

Club doubles tournaments

 

Two doubles tournaments are held each year, one in mid summer, the other at Christmas. One is held on a Saturday afternoon, the other on a Wednesday evening, over about two to three hours.

Teams are selected as balanced pairings, and are usually placed in one of two groups, playing all other teams in that group over a set time, usually around fifteen to twenty minutes. The top two teams in each group progress to a semi final.

Trophies are awarded to all finalists.

From this year the mid summer doubles tournament will be known as the Brian Boyce Tournament in honour of our club’s founder, who passed away at the start of 2019.
