Box League reminder

By Adam Jesney

Fun box league for players of all standards!

The club runs a monthly (fun) box league competition. It is for all standards of players, generally great fun and apart from developing your tennis, enjoying the games and getting out there (nice people involved) it is an excellent way of getting a little match practice in.

The format is best of 11 games, which in all likelihood should have you in and out within the hour, so no excuses there! You get a point for each game you win, plus four points for each match played. There are generally 4 to 5 people in a box so 3 or 4 games to play within the month.

It’s great to play all year and it’s great fun and it is quite acceptable when people do drop out if they need to, for a variety of reasons. This is all accommodated generally and the tennis is played with good spirit and a sporting attitude (it's not the winning, etc …)

If you’d like to join, just contact me and I’ll put you in in the next round. I would need an email and contact phone number. You could have a quick chat with our club coach Mark Finlan or myself about which box you might join but it usually works out fine. Please consider joining, you’d be more that welcome!
