At Suffolk Tennis our aim is to assist in enabling people to keep playing tennis the whole year through, via leagues and tournaments, and as such we are introducing a new series of fun, yet competitive tournaments to run throughout the autumn winter season from October until mid- March.

They are all be doubles events catering for Open class Men’s, Ladies and Mixed, plus age groups at 45, 55 and 65 also for men, ladies and mixed. This is more easily explained on the attached entry form

The format will be that each player can enter up to 3 events, and depending on the number of entries in each group, you will more than likely have to play approx. 5 to 6 matches (3 home and 3 away) between October and mid- March. You will be given a fixture list and you can arrange with your opponent match dates, you will give them 3 dates to choose from, one of which will have to be over a weekend.

Players must be a member of a Suffolk Tennis Club.

The matches consist of 3 tie break sets, and you will be awarded 1 point for each set won. If more than one group within each class a semifinal and final will be played to determine the overall winners. The presentation of the awards and perpetual trophies will take place at the Suffolk Tennis AGM in March 2019.

This is the first year that we have run such a series of tournaments, so we hope you will support and help us promote them, and circulate this to as many of your fellow players as possible.

Yours in Sport
