There are two club tournaments each year. An open tournament and a handicap tournament. This is open to any full members and is an opportunity to get some great match practice and take your chances against players you might not normally come across. There are singles, doubles and mixed doubles competitions.
Roundhay Open Tournament
Finals Day Saturday July 17 2021
The Open Tournament is open to all memberships apart from Midweek as most matches will be played weekends or weeknights. Juniors can enter the open tournament if invited to.
You need to pair up with someone to enter the doubles. If you are new to the club and don't have a partner then we may be able to help you. Just mention it when you fill in the entry form.
Entries for this are open for a couple of weeks and this year will begin on Thursday 1st April and close on Monday 12th April.
Due to Covid Regulations all information for signing up & draws & entering results will be done via the website.
Please don’t enter competitions if you have extensive holidays planned eg more than one two-week period away.
Deadlines for each round need to be followed otherwise you risk elimination to be fair to others.
The finals day this year is Saturday July 17.
Nearer the time we will have more information and idea of how finals day will run. It will depend on what the guidelines related to Covid are at that point in time.
Roundhay Handicap Tournament
Finals Day Sunday September 26 2021
Entries Close July 31st 2021
This is open to any full member of the club, with the same holiday limitation, but the main difference is your partner for the doubles events are drawn randomly for you.
It is a very popular event with different winners each year and everyone has a good chance of doing well. And it’s good fun. This year the finals day is right at the end of the season to give maximum playing time to attract as many of you as possible. Entries for this open in July.
Each individual in the singles and pairs in the doubles will get a handicap and there will be a clear explanation of the handicapping system up at the club. You have to calculate the difference in handicaps before playing. Most members are familiar with it.
For both competitions please don’t wait for others to organise - it’s always tight with holidays and weather, so get ahead and even if away you need to be available for responding promptly and organising playing dates.
