CLUB CHAMPS

CLUB CHAMPS 2017 

It’s Club Champs time again – only this year we are doing it slightly differently. 

There will be 2 different categories:

  • The Golden Oldies – over 50’s age group
  • Open Tournament for everyone

The first round in each category is a round robin which will be the best of 11 games.  The top 2 of each round robin group will go into the semi-finals where full sets will be played.

Open Tournament:

Men’s singles – The top 8 seeds go straight in to the last 16.  The rest of the entries play the round robin to get into the main draw.  In this way everyone has a chance to play more than just one round of tennis.  There will be a proper singles back draw.

Ladies singles – The entries will be split into 2 groups and the format is round robin for the first round.  The top 4 seeds go straight into the semi-finals.  There will be a proper back draw.

Doubles draw for both will be a straight knock out with no back draw.

Golden Oldies Tournament: 

Doubles and Mixed doubles played in a round robin format for the first round.  The top 2 from each group will go into the semi-finals where the scoring is done in sets.

The dates are as follows:

  • Round robins will be played on the weekends of 13 and 20 May 2017.
  • Subsequent matches on the following weekends or by arrangement during the week.
  • Open tournament finals on the 24th of June.
  • Golden oldie finals will be on the 17th of June.
  • Big Braai’s on both final days!

 

You will be scratched if:

  • You can’t make the first Saturday of the round robin.
  • Subsequent matches have not been completed by the following Saturday by 18h00.  There can be no exceptions here.

 

PLEASE NOTE THE ENTRY CLOSING DATE IS NOON SATURDAY 6 MAY 2017 AS WELL AS THE “NO PAY NO PLAY” POLICY.
