Every summer the club runs the Club Championship tournament for members including competitions for:
- men’s singles
- ladies’ singles
- men’s doubles
- ladies’ doubles and
- mixed doubles
The final of each competition is played on a single day, Finals Day. In recent years this has been the first or second Saturday of September. Doubles partners are chosen at random by pulling names from a hat to ensure every year’s competition is different.
During the Winter months there is a Mixed Doubles Handicap Tournament and Mens and Ladies Doubles tournaments.
Throughout the year we host regular fun tournaments in the “American” format to encourage players to meet and play with other members. The format has players play 4-5 games and then rotate to a new doubles partners. The tournament winner is the individual who has won the most games in total at the end of the afternoon.
The dates of these tournaments are advertised in the newsletter and club house.
Singles Box League
The Singles Box League runs throughout the year. Each round lasts 8-10 weeks, and then the winners of each box are promoted to a higher one. To join the next round, please contact Mike Smith.
This is a simple, exciting way of speeding up a conventional tennis match. See the LTA website for the rules.
A plate tournament is a knock-out tournament where the first round losers go into a second alternative knock-out tournament, with an eventual winner. This means that every entrant is guaranteed at least two matches.
Junior Club Championships
This is organised by the coaching team and the finals day is normally held in early to mid July.
Road to Wimbledon
Each year in April or May the club organises a Road to Wimbledon Challenge Tournament for players aged 14 years and under. The winners have the opportunity to progress and may even get to play at the famous All England Club!
