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.
Due to Covid-19 the open tournament has not run this year. We will be reviewing whether or not the handicap tournament will run shortly.
Roundhay Open Tournament
Finals Day Saturday July 20 2019
You need to pair up with someone to enter the doubles.
Entries for this are open for a couple of weeks and this year will begin on Good Friday 19 April and close on Friday 3 May.
During this time you can sign up at the club or e mail Ann Sedivy by clicking the sign up button below with your name, phone number, and what you want to enter.
The draw is made shortly after this.
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 20. Spectators are welcome and make the event a special one so please come and support your fellow Roundhay club members.
Roundhay Handicap Tournament
Finals Day Sunday September 29 2019
Entries Close July 31st 2019
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 on 11 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.
