Club Tournaments

First and Third Saturday (of the month) Tournaments

The fun and sociable ‘FST’ & ‘TST’ mixed doubles tournaments have become a tradition at the club. All members are welcome however the standard of play is ‘social’ rather than competitive, with a target participant of regular club players, stronger improvers and older juniors.

The tournaments have an arrival time of 2.15 pm and generally last until 5 pm. They are free to enter and include tea and cakes, prizes for each tournament and a shot at being ‘Annual Men’s and Ladies Champion’.

Club Championships

We aim to have club championships each year i.e. men’s singles & doubles; ladies’ singles & doubles; and mixed doubles (The Bicknell Bowl).

The committee and captains organise these in various formats and at different times of the year to coincide with the current best option.

Other Fun Events

From time to time are Tombola Tennis, TennisSprint Tournaments, Ladders and other unusual challenges.
