Competitive Play

 

The Club organises a number of competitive tournaments throughout the summer and social tournaments throughout the year:

 

  • Club Tennis Championships

 

Club Tennis Championships run for 1 week in mid July starting on the weekend of the Wimbledon Finals. Categories include Ladies’ and Men’s Singles, Ladies’ and Men’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles. The Mixed Event is held on the Sunday morning of the Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final in a round robin format followed by a BBQ. Players and members can then watch the Wimbledon Final on the big screen.  For all other events, consolations draws are run so allowing first round losers to continue playing in a Plate Event. Junior members can play by invitation.

 

The 2019 dates and schedule will appear here when available

 

  • Social Tournaments

 

Social tournaments usually run on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon around the times of the Grand Slam tournaments and at other times throughout the year. These are actively promoted on Tennis and Social notice boards and by staff and committee members. During the summer the social aspects are further enhanced by including BBQs or buffets to enjoy with other members after the tennis.
