Hill & Valley Tennis Club is well known locally and further afield for the annual Coln Valley Mixed Doubles Open Tournament, a special day of social and competitive tennis. 

Around 100 entrants take part and play on private courts kindly loaned for the day by residents in the surrounding villages of Chedworth, GL54 4NE

The event raises funds for the tennis club and local churches in the Hill & Valley Benefice. 

The competition is a Mixed Doubles Open Tournament, the morning Round Robins are played to a Sliding Handicap so you can enjoy the tennis whatever your standard. The top two pairs will qualify to compete for the Speke Cup and play a further group Round Robin in the afternoon. Those who would like continue to play can compete for the Scott-Smith Salver. Both afternoon sessions will lead to knockout finals on the club courts in Chedworth and we encourage players to show their support by watching and enjoying a glass of pimms.

Coffee, Hot Lunch, Afternoon Tea and Cakes are included in the entry fee.

A raffle is run and drawn at lunchtime, there are some excellent prizes generously donated.

Weather permitting, all players should be able to enjoy a full day of tennis. If the weather is inclement we will still attempt to play as much tennis as possible and give everyone an enjoyable day. Being a catered event we would only cancel in very exceptional circumstances.                                                                                                                            

Please arrive promptly.  We have to start the morning groups on time so if you are late you may be unable to complete all your games resulting in fewer points.  If you are inviting other players, please make sure they are aware of the arrangements and arrive on time.

Group leaders have instructions for running each session.  In the event of poor weather or court conditions are such that you feel a court is unsuitable in any way, the group leader will contact the organiser to seek advice.

Seating  Not all courts have seating so you might like to have a folding chair in the car just in case.

Clothing  Please wear non-marking tennis shoes, full whites are not essential.

Courts  Please park thoughtfully at the locations where you are playing and respect the property of those who have kindly loaned their courts for the event.

Safety  Players play at their own risk and must take responsibility for their own safety.  

Weather  The event will go ahead unless unprecedentedly poor weather is forecast in which case we would make every effort to contact players the night before or early on the day.

Photographs  We will take photographs of players and participants during the event, which may be used on the Hill & Valley LTC and other websites and/or in news or social media. We assume you consent to this unless you let us know in advance to the contrary.
