Club Mixed Doubles League


Overview

The league will be structured vertically, with divisions consisting of 5 couples. Each couple plays the other couples in their division once, in a four week period. At the end of the four week period, the top two couples are promoted and the bottom two couples relegated. The next round of games then starts over again, with the new divisions.
The League will start on Monday 12th April and run to Sunday 20th June.

The Rules

Entry:

• Open to all Members (over 14 years old) who have paid their subs for the 2021/22 season

• There are no match fees.

Arranging matches:

• Couples to arrange matches between themselves, reserving court time via the Club’s court booking system
• Couples to supply their own tennis balls
• Failure to fulfil a match in the four week period will result in zero points for both couples

Scoring and Results Submission:

• Matches to consist of 2 sets with a tie-breaker
• Results to be submitted via the group WhatsApp, as soon as possible after the match
