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.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: FSTs and TSTs resume from July 2020 – sadly no tea and cakes until we are able to re-open the clubhouse.
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’.
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.
