Social Tournament with Putney and Magdalene - Saturday 11th June
We will be hosting a joint social tennis session with Putney and Magdalen Tennis Clubs to provide some variety for social tennis to mix in with other nearby clubs.
Social Tennis - Saturday 4th June
It will be held from 2-6pm with BBQ and drinks after the event. There is a limit of 18 players and will be open mainly for social tennis players.
The format shall be based on a doubles team event with teams of 6 for the first half of the afternoon. It will then be followed by a social mix in amongst players from all three clubs. You are more than welcome to find your own team of 6, or sign up as a single person and we will put you in a team.
Please note that we can only take 18 players or 3 teams of six for this event. It will take up 9 courts for the afternoon, therefore there will be limited courts available for members. Social tennis will be replaced with this event.
The cost of the event is only £5 which will include balls and a voucher for a burger after the event.
This will be quite a popular event as you will have an opportunity to play against Magdalen and Putney clubs' social tennis players and hopefully the sun will be out for us to enjoy the BBQ and some drinks after.
Please sign up at the bar, and we would ask that you pay at sign up, not only to secure your place but also to help us with advance preparation so that we're not busy taking payment on the day.
Just as a side note, social tennis on Saturday 4 June will be in the 20 minutes rotation King/Queen of the Court format with a coach mix-in. So do come along and practise with a coach in preparation for the Putney-Magdalen event (not that we're that competitive... Lol!)
We had a very successful organised coach mix-in social on Saturday 30th April with a 31 players turning up for social tennis on the day - more than double the numbers who signed up in advance!
The King of the Court format was played whereby winners move up and losers move down and the pairs split to play with a different player. Pete Mojzis was our coach and at least 11 players had the benefit of playing with or against Pete. Martin Tann and Farida Seddon, our King and Queen of the Court, stayed pretty much at the top two courts for the five rounds played in the two hours.
The general feedback on the session was good and enjoyable, so we will be organising this again as a monthly event. The next session will be on Saturday 4th June 2-4pm. Remember, this is a free event for members. Please do sign up in advance to help with pairings, court allocation and general organisation. Thank you for your support in turning up, the more players we have, the better the social tennis session is.
