TACTICS Tennis clubs are organising the Round Robin Postal tournament during the spring and summer for ladies doubles players.

The event is open to all players providing they play their matches within a 25 mile radius of Buntingford.

The aim of the event is to give players the opportunity of playing several matches in their own locality against players of a similar standard.

It is emphasised that all casual players should enter as well as team players as the event will be seeded.

The tournament will be structured so that some matches will be played at their home venue at times convenient to all players.

At the beginning of the tournament entries are grouped into manageable sections of half a dozen or so by ability and locality, each pair playing every other pair in their section.

Depending on the size of entry the top one or maybe two pairs will proceed to the next round and so on towards a final which will be played at the end of the summer on a date convenient to the finalists.

Day-time only matches will be for the casual/social player only and there will be a separate division included for these players.

Each match will be the best of three sets: two tie break sets and a third long set. Further details can be obtained from Liz Wade on 01763 273646

The closing date for entries 31st March 2007.
