St Ann’s Tennis members are invited to join us for Mixed Doubles at St Ann’s Tennis this Christmas.
We’ll be running the tournament across all eight courts 1pm-4pm on Saturday 11 December. It’s all mixed, so all entrants will need to pair up for Super Saturday. The standard is ‘intermediate’.
Please pay and register online now via the link below. £10 per pair. Only one member of the pair needs to register – you can split the cost – but please inform Conrad via WhatsApp of both names. Both players on each team must be St Ann’s Tennis members. Here is the booking link:
Any male or female players interested in playing, and are looking for a good partner, please get in touch with Conrad.
nb. We will keep a waiting list, so if it’s full, contact me (Conrad) and I will make a note. There are bound to be drop outs.
You’ll play with your partner throughout, playing five game sets. We will post a clear Order Of Play/schedule. Your ‘team’ will earn a point for every game won, with the winning pair being the team which wins the most games in total. Depending on the light, we will aim to play 7 or 8 rounds.
St Ann’s Tennis will provide fresh balls, proper trophies and flapjacks. Christmas jumpers and silly hats are encouraged.
Tournament notes (please read):
An afternoon tournament is quite a commitment. Please do not register if you cannot start on time, or play the full duration of the tournament. Please contact the tournament organiser in advance if you cannot make it.
Please be there on time. We will gather for a quick chat (and photo!) and a short warm-up before the tournament starts. Then it’s straight into the action.
Bring drinks and snacks, and appropriate clothing. It’s a long afternoon. Please make sure all four balls are left on court at the end of each set.
Spin before. Winner chooses either to serve, or end. If you chose to serve, you opponents may chose their end. You will not change your end through the five games.
The winners will be the pair with the most game victories.
Nb. This is NOT an American tournament. You need to find a partner with whom to enter, and you remain together, as a pair, throughout.
In the event of bad weather, the tournament may be played Sunday 12 December. We will keep a waiting list for this tournament. There are bound to be late drop-outs. We can also help players match other players where possible.
