Update from Pavilion 85 Tournament on 7th October

20 Members enjoyed a great afternoon's tennis in the sun on 7th October as the Captain's team won the Pavilion 85 for the third year in a row.

It was great to see four of our newer members join for their first club tournament - thanks to Jennifer Johnstone, Tom Messenger, Sarah Thompson and Tony Shadbolt all join in and enjoy the Tournament.

The effect the results have on the League of Tournaments is now reflected in the overall results above.

Next key event will be our annual Christmas Tournament on Saturday 15th December 2018.

Thanks to Ryan and Peter for organising the event and thanks to Steve Goodman for his ongoing support of the League of Tournaments.

2017 League of Tournaments
The final league of tournaments for 2017 is here. 

I am delighted to be able to publish the overall results for the club League of Tournaments for 2017.  Mary Knight managed to hold on to top lady and overall winner for the year with an average of 4.67 - well done Mary.  Straight in at number 2 after the Christmas Tournament and overall men’s winner was Matt Borelli on 4.6 after his first tournament - really well done Matt.

Through the year we had 38 members play in tournaments with more than 20 members playing more than one event. It was great to see a number of members play in club tournaments for the first time in 2017, all of whom did really well.

We are all really looking forward to the tournament programme for 2018, which you can find under the Key Dates Tab on the website.

Update June 2015

Most of the tournaments comprise matches lasting 20 minutes duration. However, so far this year the Mac McCallum cup was 15 minutes (as has been the case before) but the Don Gill cup was 18 minutes. In order to get parity with future 20 minute tournaments I have given an uplift to these first 2 tournaments (by different amounts) so that they should all be of equal value. 


We have had 32 members of the club participate in the first two tournaments of the year.

The overall leader and highest man in the league is Salim Jadavji with an average tournament score of 5.56.

Mary Knight is the highest lady and fourth position in the league overall with 3.85. In fact the ladies occupy three of the top six and five of the top ten indicating some strength in depth in the club.


Many thanks to Carl Murray and Neil Gill for all their hard work in organising and staging these events.

2014 Year End


Here is the update to the 'League of Tournaments' to incorporate the Pavilion 85 Tournament which took place 28th September 2014.

The charts and associated commentaries are managed by Steve Goodman


After her first tournament, the Pavilion 85, Jennifer Thomas came straight in at joint number 2 with Mike Stenton and Max Warren. She occupied top position for the ladies. Jonathan Epps continued to occupy top spot overall.


Brigid Ward also done well, rising from 22nd. to 17th. after the Pvilion 85. Carl Murray was the most improved for the gents by moving from 36th. to 22nd. in the table.


The chart, which ran for 2 calender years closed at the end of 2014. A new league will commence this year and finish at the end of the calendar year.


The final positions for the League of Tournaments ending 2014 have now been compiledClick Here  to see the chart


The overall joint winners and male champions of the League are Mike Stenton and Max Warren. Each scored a creditable average of 4.25 games per short set for every tournament across 2 years. As you know, each short set in a tournament is normally of 20 minutes duration and often players will complete a typical 6-7 games in total over the 20 minutes. Players get through around 5-6 short sets per tournaments. 


Mike and Max have therefore have demonstrated themselves as the most consistent players in the club as far as internal tournaments are concerned.


Equally, Jennifer Thomas was the top and most consistent ladies champion scoring an average of 3.83 games per short set. Jennifer finished 5th in the table overall.


Over the course of the 2 years, 42 players took part in the various tournaments which were well arranged by different members of the club.
