Events & Tournaments

We run several events and tournaments during the year, see below.

Coln Valley Mixed Doubles Open Tournament 
This is our main event of the year.  Held every June, it began in 1982 and is well known locally and further afield.   A traditional mixed doubles tournament open to members and non-members to compete for the Speke Cup and the Scott-Smith Salver.  Around 100 entrants take part and play on courts kindly loaned for the day by residents in surrounding villages.  The event raises funds for the tennis club, local churches in the Hill & Valley Benefice and the Allison Stock Coaching Fund.  Coffee, lunch and tea are served at the village hall and the finals are held on the club courts.  Click HERE above for more info. 

American Mixed Doubles
An informal and social mixed doubles club competition played to the American Doubles format competing for the wonderful John Robson Rose Bowl. John Robson made a significant contribution to the club both as a coach and committee member over many years and he loved playing American Doubles.  Many of our younger members learned to play tennis with him. 

Allison Stock Day
An annual club event to celebrate the life of Allison Stock, our former tennis captain and committee member and the contribution she made to the club. In 2019 this took the form of a ladies’ tournament followed by high tea in the Village Hall to which all members were invited.  Each year we can have a different format to the day to fully reflect the ‘wholehearted commitment’ Allison gave to the Club.
