Club Championships 2024

Apr 4, 2024

This year we will run the following club tournaments staggered over the summer and culminating in a Finals Day on Sunday 1st September 2024.

Please make sure you can play on the Finals Day before entering!

Men’s Singles, Ladies’ Singles, Men’s Doubles, Ladies’ Doubles and Mixed Doubles events will be run from April through to August.

These will start with a round-robin format throughout the late spring and summer, progressing to a knockout stage, culminating in a Finals Day as shown below.

Sunday 1st September

Singles Finals 14:00

Men’s Singles Final Court 1; Ladies’ Singles Final Court 2

Doubles Finals 15:30

Ladies’ Doubles Court 1; Men’s Doubles Court 2

Mixed Doubles Final 17:00 Court 1

(Times may be altered nearer the day if any player is in more than one final).

Each event will follow the same format and will be played first to win 2 sets with a normal tiebreak at 6-6 games all (first to 7 points or win by 2 clear points).

If one set all, a third set ‘Championship Tiebreak’ (first player to reach 10 points or if 9-9 by 2 clear points) will be played.

Players will organise their own matches and there will be a timeframe to complete each round. It is important that players stick to these deadlines.

The winning player or team will be responsible for notifying the tournament organiser as below.

If you would like to take part in any of these events please email me at [email protected] by Friday 12th April, stating which events you are entering and if a doubles event the name of your partner.

All draws will be posted on Monday 15th April on a tournament board in the Club room, and on the Shipston Tennis Clubhouse app.

Kind regards,
