2020/21 Club Event Entries NOW OPEN

Club Events are open and they are:

Events closing 6th February- entry forms are at Swinburne Avenue

  • Pairs – Men’s, Women’s & Mixed
  • Triples
  • Fours

Events Closing 13th February – entry forms at Glen Street & Swinburne Avenue

  • Chairman’s Trophy
  • MCC Cup
  • Proportional Hcp
  • Men & Ladies Veteran Singles & Super Veteran Singles.

Dates for play for all events will be decided depending on entries received but will allow two week for early rounds to be played and 1 or two weeks for later rounds if only a small number of entries are received.

The dates that are set will NOT be suggestions or recommendations, they will be the final dates for play. Don’t wait for the last date available or walkovers will be awarded if something unexpected occurs.

I know this makes the participation in all events difficult but the time frame available does not allow for extended event dates.
