The St Chad’s Club Championships start on 23rd of July with 36 players competing in doubles pairs for men’s, ladies’ and mixed titles in a knockout competition. The first round-of-16 matches are due to be played by 5th August. The finals will be held on the afternoon of Sunday 28th August with an end-of-season social and barbecue. Details will be sent to all members shortly.
Both men’s teams started the new summer season in the Leeds Tennis League with victories. Men’s matches are played as 4 2-set rubbers. Our new men’s B team played at home to Wakefield B in division 7, winning 7-1 and the men’s A went one better with a comprehensive 0-8 win away to Boston Spa B in division 4.
We’re now able to offer members a selection of T-shirts and mugs featuring the club logo. To buy yours, just go to our new club shop.
We’re holding the ever-popular American Mixed Tournament again this year, 2-4pm on Sunday 22 May at the Leeds Beckett outdoor tennis courts. The entry fee is £5, payable on the day in cash and by card or phone in advance. All are welcome.
American Mixed is a very simple tournament format – you are initially paired up with a partner and play four games, keeping track of how many games you win. Then the winners stay on that court and split up, and are joined by two more players and you play another four games – and so on.
Its a great way of playing with lots of different people and because it’s such a mix of partnerships it’s enjoyable whatever standard you are. We hope to see many of you for a great afternoon.
