olympic flagHave you always wanted to take part in the Olympics but haven’t quite made the national team??? Well we’ve designed an event especially for you!

Greystones LTC are having a  club team competition to coincide with the Olympics. All levels are welcome.

The format

  • 8 people on a team – 4 men and 4 women
  • Enter alone or as a doubles pair – we’ll find you partners if needs be and match you up into teams
  • There will be 3 games against other teams – Friday 5, 12 and 19 August at 7.30pm
  • Cost €10 includes BBQ each Friday night (yes 3 nights play and BBQ for €10 euros a bargain!)
  • Each team consists of 2 men and 2 women from class 1 -4 and 2 men and 2 women from class 5 and below
  • Guaranteed fun event! Friday nights have proven very popular in the club this July – let’s continue this on into August!
  • You can get subs!

How play and scoring works

  • Class 1 – 4 men and women play 1 game of doubles (9 games – tiebreak at 8 games) and 1 game of mixed (9 games again a tie break for the 9th game) against the class 1 – 4 pairs
  • The same happens with class 5 and below against the same level on the other side
  • Each mixed pair is nominated in order of merit so the best pair play the best pair
  • There are potentially 72 points up for grabs for each team to win each week (9 for ladies doubles *2, mens doubles *2, mixed doubles *4)
