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 early July, the week after Wimbledon. Categories include Ladies’ and Men’s Singles, Ladies’ and Men’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles. The Mixed Event is held on Wednesday evening in a round robin format followed by a BBQ. 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.

 

  • Junior Tennis Championships

 

Junior Tennis Championships run over a weekend and in 2013 were held on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June. Events include Minis and various Boys and Girls age group Singles and Doubles categories.

 

  • Hardcourt Singles Championships

 

Hardcourt Singles Championships which usually run in May for 2 weeks.

 

  • A Qualification Tournament

 

A Qualification Tournament for the ‘Road to Wimbledon’ event takes place annually in May. This is a knockout singles tournament for all boys and girls aged 8-14 years old. Winners progress to the Yorkshire Qualification tournament and then onto Wimbledon!

 

  • Handicap Social tournaments

 

Handicap Social tournaments usually run on a 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.
