Ladies – its back by popular demand – to keep you fit in the run up to Christmas we are doing the Chick League Doubles Competition again! Text Ailish on 0872380265 if you want to sign up with your name and approx tennis standard by latest cob Saturday 21 October and the groups are ready to start the following week. No need for a partner obviously – you are playing for yourself in this doubles competition! Its a great chance to have some friendly competitive games with some friends or a chance to meet some new tennis buddies. Last year we had 64 women taking part from across the tennis club!

Here’s how it works:

  • 8 people in a group of similar standard will play doubles with each other over the duration of the competition.  chickens-playing-tennis2
  • 5 matches – you will get a different partner each week and you should also not meet anyone in the group more than twice as your opposition (start play w/c 23 Oct!)
  • 6 weeks to play so one match a week approx – we will suggest a weekend/evening default time or agree a default time that suits the group or rearrange during the week
  • Entry €5 which goes towards prizes for each group
  • Matches are best of 3 sets however the third set if its one set all isn’t a set – it’s a  championship tiebreak – ie normal tiebreak rules apply but the first to 10 to win by two points wins the set
  • You get a point for each set you win and count your own score – so max 2 points per match or you could get 1 point if you get a set or none
  • Captain named in each group to keep the group on top of things and keep track of scores
  • All matches to be played by the The Ladies Christmas party (Saturday 2 December) where prizes will be presented

How to take part

  • Sign up on the club noticeboard or text your name to Ailish 0872380265 and I will slot you into a group of 8 of similar standard based on our tennis colour standards
  • If you have a ready made group text the names of your group (and a group name!)
  • Games start next week so enter by cob on Saturday 21 October!!
  • We will do up pairings for each match each week
  • Ailish/your captain will collect the €5 over the next few weeks or you can leave into the office – your group funds will go towards prizes for your group!
  • Play and enjoy – it’s a great opportunity to try out different partners or play different games!
