First-Round Matches

Winter Ladder

Introduction

Every year towards the end of September, we invite all members to take part in the ‘Winter Social League’ – the format is mixed doubles and weather permitting each participant could have two different partners.

This is a fun league to enable new and existing members to perhaps partner other members they may not normally meet.

We will have 2 rounds of competition beginning in October and running through to March.

It is a good way to keep your tennis going throughout the winter months and to allow the bar to stay open!


Michael Waite Memorial Trophy

One Lady Member and one Gentleman Member will be presented with the Michael Waite Memorial Trophy, chosen by the organisers ( based on player contribution to the competition over the 2 rounds )
