Long Buckby Lawn Tennis Tournament
4th & 5th July 2020
Entries now open!
If you have not played before then here is a quick bit of background. It is played on the Long Buckby Sportsfield, we erect 14 grass courts on the cricket outfield.
On Saturday 4th July we have the Mens doubles, Ladies doubles and Veteran Mens doubles. On Sunday the tournament reaches fever pitch as we host Junior singles, Junior doubles, mixed doubles, and veteran mixed doubles. We are hosting the annual event for the 113th time, so we must be doing something right.
We play in sections in the morning and play a round robin competition, this is a social and family friendly tennis and suitable for all standards, it attracts lots of local players from clubs too, with the winners going through to the knock-out tournament where the standard hots up further. The mini singles (under 11yrs on the day of the tournament) is often where the youngsters have their first taste of tennis competition). The junior section is a mixed or single sex doubles event and attracts lots of youngsters.
It is always a fantastic weekend of tennis, often in the sunshine and family friendly event. So why not enter and have something to look forward to (you can sample some Pimms while you watch the competition progress.

Bouncy castle and mini tennis available for free on Sunday
