SATURDAY 19TH DECEMBER 1pm  ***date change**

Now in the 7th year, the most anticipated and most fun social tournament of the On The Edge Tennis calendar, THE TURKEY AND TENNIS MIXED DOUBLES TOURNAMENT!!

Rules

You can pick your own Mixed Doubles partner or I will find you one

Each match will be fair, as weaker pairs will have TURKEYS to use at any point in each game.

A TURKEY is a free point, some pairs may have multiple to claim at start, middle or end of games, the best pairs will have ZERO TURKEYS, this tournament needs switched on brains to use your TURKEYS efficiently and the most tactically!

There will be a large group of Round Robin (should be called Tubby Turkey I suppose) matches then a Knockout tournament to decide the multiple Tennis prizes on offer!

Then most importantly there will be fabulous HOT Turkey and Stuffing Sandwiches, Mince Pies and Hot Mulled Wine to enjoy whilst participants watch the final!

Santa Hats are a must and Christmas Music will be audible from the courts!

£8 Entry confirm partner to 07780 777774 or I can find you one.

SUNDAY 3RD JANUARY

NEW YEAR TOUCH TENNIS TOURNAMENT 1pm til 2:30pm

Open to Adults and Juniors, where ability differences are massively hidden on the tiny courts, power not allowed. Can you go 90 minutes non stop AND drop a couple of unwanted party pounds. BRING ANY UNWANTED XMAS CHOCOLATE and I’ll take it to the Acorn’s Children’s Hospital, start the year as you mean to go on.

Winner gets £20 and Trophy, £6 Entry. TOUCH TENNIS rules…

  • Played with slower, softer balls to aid rallies
  • Played on tiny court, we will use the service box, just one.
  • Touch shots only, No hard shots or smashes allowed, just skilful well placed volleys, lobs, slices, spin shots
  • Each point starts by a player dropping ball off net cord by hand onto opponents side of net, and the point develops from there, then normal tennis rules apply.
  • Each match is timed, the player leading ie 6-4 advances to next higher court and player losing moves down one court, if tied a deciding point is played!

This tournament is a great leveller, taking speed and power out of peoples play and relies on tactics and sharp reactions and of course a good touch, but absolutely promotes lots of rallies and tactics! So what are the Tournament rules?

  • You are going to get an amazing workout with a fun and competitive edge to it, no breaks?
  • Up to 24 players can enter and will compete on 12 mini courts, 1-12 with 1 being the top court and 12 being the bottom court!
  • Players will randomly pick their starting court by picking a court number out of a hat on arrival.
  • Each match will last 3 minutes to music, when music stops, players immediately move up or down one court and start next match against a new competitor, If you win on court 1 you remain on court 1. If you lose on court 12 you remain on court 12.
  • 90 minutes using 3 minute games means 30 rounds to get as high as you can, a gruelling marathon.
  • WINNER of 30th round on court 1, wins Trophy PLUS £20 cash prize.

Call 07780 777774 to book place now, this will be popular.
