March Tournament -Latest News

Thank you to all for your support of our tournament over the years.

Having had the first event at the new club in 2020, there were a couple of things that we were concerned about and felt we could do better.

The first of these was not having the championship singles played on the grass courts. Given our concerns about playing singles tennis in the heat on the hard courts we played the finals earlier in the day than we traditionally would.  We also have always felt the championship singles finals are the highlight of the tournament and were keen to showcase these matches on the prime courts.  As such we are planning on shifting all the championship events onto grass courts.

The second issue that we struggled with was how to utilize our high quality hard courts.  To account for the shifting of the championship events onto the grass courts we also needed to shift some of our events onto the hard courts.  We felt making the open second division events round robin on hard court could fulfill both of these issues.

We understand that our seniors players often have more issues with knees and hips.  As such the seniors events will continue to be played on grass.

With all of these changes there will need to be some limitations put on the size of various draws. This will likely involve the closing of certain events prior to the official closing date.  As such we would encourage you to get your entries in nice and early.

Partner Required

For many years we have had a partner required service where we have attempted to pair players who didn’t have a partner lined up.  Instead this year we are planning on putting the onus on you to find your own partner.  We have set up a classified/match making page on our website.  Send us a email with a brief player bio and we will list you on our page.  Include which event/s you are keen to play in. See the example below with contact details. Likewise feel free to contact someone on the list that fits your requirements.
