The time has come to take part in this year’s club tournament! There will be the usual events to enter:

Ladies Singles
Gentlemen Singles

Gentlemen Doubles
Mixed Doubles
Mixed Doubles Handicap (where partners are drawn from a hat)

Don’t worry if you don’t have a partner for the doubles events as we can match you up with one. For the Doubles events 2017 will see the introduction of a new rule to make matches a bit more interesting in that a first team player cannot play with another first team player. A first team player is someone who has played more than twice for the first team during the 2017 league season.
