The Highgate Winter Floodlit Tournament is now back! After the survey carried out by Richard Rogers last year to find ways to improve the format and participation, the vast majority of people have asked to play in a more competitive atmosphere and restrict the players to a higher and even standard of playing. We also took on board the suggestion to end the evening earlier and speed up the game. Here you go then…
Date: Every Wed, starting from the 10th of October
Time: 7pm – to 9pm (arrive at 6.45pm for a prompt start).
Eligibility: Men Team 1-4 and Women Team 1 (if you play in Teams) or Ladder 1 to 3 (if you do not play in Teams)
Format: Doubles sets ‘Fast 4’ (set is to 4 games, no lets, sudden death at deuce). Points are accrued over the whole winter period for the ultimate prize ‘Champion of the Winter League’. Not necessary to play every week but a certain percentage is needed.
Cost: £5 per session (this includes lights and balls) to paid cash on court before playing.
Please sign-up in the club house before the 4th of October. Once you sign-up, then you will be invited to a Whatsup chat group to organise each session on a weekly basis (number of players, pairs, etc…).
