- PLEASE RETURN YOUR ENTRY BY 24 FEBRUARY 2019

- The Draw will take place on Saturday 2 March 2019 at 09:00 in the clubhouse

This is a great opportunity for you to meet and play other Members. Do not be put off entering just because you think you may not have a chance of winning - remember there are plate events and drawn events too, so everyone has a reasonable opportunity to reach the Finals and win a trophy! Finals weekend is the most popular event of the year, both socially as well as from a tennis perspective.

To ensure we do not have to cancel any events due to lack of numbers, please do not be shy when it comes to the number of events you choose to enter - get good value for your entry fee! Remember it's the fun of taking part that counts not the winning, but you still need to be in it to win it!

A separate entry form for junior events will be issued nearer the time of the tournament.
