The return of the
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 the Saturday we have the Mens doubles, Ladies doubles and Veteran Mens doubles. On Sunday the tournament reaches fever pitch as we host Junior doubles, mixed doubles and veteran mixed doubles. We are hosting the annual event since 1908, so we must be doing something right.
More recently we have hosted a mini festival for Under 10's on both the Saturday and Sunday.
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 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).
Need to keep the kids entertained?
Bouncy castle and mini tennis available for free on Sunday
