To get everyone in the mood for Wimbledon, Mirfield Tennis Club’s annual Strawberry Tournament for members will be held on Saturday 29th June 2019, before all eyes turn to SW19 the following Monday!
The tournament will start at 1pm prompt so players are asked to arrive between 12pm and 12.30pm to register. Entry fee is £5 per player and pairs are drawn out on the day. All entrants will receive a bowl of strawberries and cream. Minimum age to enter is 16 years (younger players at the discretion of MTC Committee).
The Strawberry Tournament celebrates all that is great about tennis and the summer. The format will follow that of previous years – a fun and social tournament of American format Mixed Doubles – meaning half of the games in a match are played with your partner and half the games played against your partner. It is therefore your individual game score that matters.
This is an enjoyable tournament for players of all abilities and a great way to meet new members of the club, so we hope as many members as possible can attend and help make it another memorable tournament.
The committee would really appreciate it if any non-players or injured players could come along and help out with the organisation on the day.
The Club looks forward to seeing you all there!… Oh and fingers crossed the weather is kind to us!
