Now that we are in Step 3 Restrictions we feel that it is now safe to hold larger outdoor group activities such as American tournaments. The first one will be the upcoming Bank Holiday Monday, 31st May, from 2pm, finishing by 5pm. Due to the ongoing pandemic, advanced registration is required–sorry we cannot accommodate anyone who turns up on the day.
An American tournament is a fun way to play doubles with a variety of different partners and opponents over the course of an afternoon. Each player keeps their track of the number of individual games he or she has won in each set and the winner is the person who has won the most games at the end of the day. It is a great introduction to social tennis for newcomers to the club, or those improvers who want to try out their new skills at a club session. For regular club social players it is a fun alternative to the usual tennis format.
For details of how to enter, please see the Club's most recent email newsletter (20th May).
