The next friendly mixed competition is scheduled for Saturday 23 June.

  • Please note that at last Thursday’s committee meeting it was decided to charge a nominal entry fee of £1 per player for the Saturday mixed competitions to ensure that they are self-financing.
  • Ideally please arrange in advance to pair up with another player to try to ensure equal numbers of male and female, although actual partners will be drawn on the day. Additional lady players would be very welcome!
  • Each pair then plays other pairs according to a specific schedule. The schedule is designed to spread play across the hard court and each grass court to try to ensure fairness.
  • Schedules are designed for any number from 3 to 12 pairs but a strict deadline of arrival by 1.45pm is needed if the process is to be manageable.

A further friendly mixed competition and barbecue is scheduled for Sunday 8 July. An entry fee of £5 will be charged to raise funds for the continued improvements to the grass courts on the understanding that the club will provide rolls, sausages and burgers while players will need to provide their own salad and drinks.

More details to follow nearer the date.

A further mixed competition is planned Sunday 9 September.

Hope to see you next Saturday, but if you have any queries then please don't hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes
