Parks Cup

How To Enter The 2021 Parks Cup

All St Ann’s Tennis members are invited to take part in the annual Parks Cup tournament, the sister competition of the Parks League.

Managed by BHPLTA, the Parks Cup is a knock-out ‘Wimbledon’ style tournament with singles doubles and mixed doubles competitions. The competition is open to all members of Brighton & Hove parks clubs. The qualifying rounds, including semi-finals, are arranged privately between contestants, and can be played at any parks club at a venue and time of your convenience. Then all the finals are played on the same day –  at Queens Park on Saturday 24 July – and it’s one of the best tennis days of the year. We would love St Ann’s to be represented!

The closing date for entries is Monday 26 April

They are running six competitions:
1. Men’s Singles
2. Women’s Singles
3. Men’s Doubles
4. Women’s Doubles
5. Mixed Doubles
6. Mixed Veteran’s Doubles (aged 45 and over on 30 April, 2021)

This is a tournament for all levels, not just the elite. Men defeated in Rounds 1 and 2 can enter the Men’s Singles Plate Competition – meaning everyone who enters has a chance to stay involved deep into the competition!

Key rules:
All entrants must be available to play on both 24 and 25 July. [*] Do not enter if you are not available.

Doubles pairs can be registered with different parks clubs
