Seniors EOY Challenge 2020

Seniors “EOY Challenge” Monday 7 Dec 2020.
( Covid 19 Safety Rules continue to apply)

As in previous years we will again organize our now annual Challenge for Seniors and other Retirees on the last official Monday morning of our season to properly say farewell to 2020.

Entries will be accepted in the following categories: Ladies singles, Male singles A and B, Ladies doubles, Male doubles A+B combined and Mixed doubles. The normal $5 playing fee applies.          

Trophies and a surprise will be presented to each singles winner and runner up, as well as the winners in the doubles.

Starting from 10 am exactly, play will continue to 1.30 pm, which will be followed by the trophy presentation and our get together in the room upstairs till about 2.30 pm.                                            

As previously, the good old Aussie tradition of bringing a small plate and /or a couple of drinks     (Non Alcoholic) would help to create an enjoyable function.

Please note that because of time restraints some special rules apply:

1 Players can only enter in 1 singles and 1 doubles event.
2 Matches are “Best of 3”. If a player wins the first 2 sets, the 3rd set is not to be played.
3 Pools will be of 3 players and the winner goes on to the knock out rounds.
4 Non playing players in the pools are requested to act as umpires.
5 The organising committee will have the final decision on A and B qualifications and grading.
6 In the Ladies and Male doubles A+B combined and Mixed doubles, 2 A graded players forming a team is not allowed.
7 A graded players are subject to a 4 point singles and 3 points doubles handicap for each division their opponent’s level of play is graded, eg: a div’n 2 player playing a div’n 4 player in singles is handicapped at -8 in singles and -6 in doubles. Ratings Central Points apply where applicable to decide the divisional qualification. Previous winners in the Mens B grade and Ladies singles are graded div.5 and move to the A grade classification where they get a favourable handicap.
We have provided entry lists on the desk for the various categories mentioned above and you can enter your name if you like to participate, once you have worked out which singles event and/or which partner you want to play with in one of the doubles.   

I look forward to your participation.

Kind regards, Theo.
