Club Championship Information and Sign Up 2020

* To register, please submit the form at the bottom of this page.*

Members should hone their games and pick a partner in preparation for September, our traditional “Club Championship Month”. Adult and Intermediate members are eligible to enter – see details and sign-up form below.


Categories

We are offering the following Categories and Levels within the categories of competition for the 2020 Club Championships (subject to participation):
 Category              Levels
Men’s Singles        A, B
Ladies Singles       A, B
Men’s Doubles       A, B
Ladies Doubles      A, B
Mixed Doubles       A, B
(For C Level see Consolation below)

A Consolation draw will be held in the B Level only…but only when there are 8 or more players (or teams for doubles) registered in the main draw. When this is the case, anyone who loses in their first match will be eligible for the consolation (double elimination).

Players who feel they should play in a C Level should register as “B”.  The winner in any B Consolation will be declared the C Level Champion.

If you are not sure of your level, please ask our Tennis Pro to help you decide.

Members can elect to play whichever category they would like, if unsure, our Tennis Professionals can give you sound advice.

  • You can play at your own level or a higher level, but not a lower level.
  •  If you won the singles or doubles tournament the previous year at the B level, then you must sign up for the A level this year.
  •  A doubles pair must enter at the level of the stronger of the pair (ie. if a “B” player is paired with an A player, then can only enter a draw at the “A” level)
  • Substitutions only prior to the first round draw
