It’s that time of year again when we are asking you to enter the Summer Club Championship. We had so much positive feedback regarding last years event that as the old saying goes, ‘if it isn’t broken then don’t fix it!’…..so we will continue with the same format.
While of course someone has to win each tournament, so many of you told me that what was so nice about last years event was simply the taking part that allowed you to play competitively against club members who you would not normally play.
The tournaments are open to all club members and last year we had a fantastic turnout…..but this year we can do even better I’m sure! My only request is that we try to have more ladies enter the singles tournament so we don’t have to cancel it again!
How to enter

Senior Men’s singles (Over 50)
