Autumn Club Championships 2017


THe autumn tournament 

The Autumn Tournament is now open to entries via the on-line booking system. There will also be sign up sheets at the club.

Men’s Singles - The aim is to have  A, B and C events as with the summer tournament. We will follow the same format as last year and make it into FA Cup style draws with no seeds and the draw for each round taking place after the one before. It doesn’t matter if you are not sure which level you are - we will group players from the entries we receive. So, if you like the idea of playing singles but have always thought it wasn’t worth entering because you weren’t good enough, please give this event a go so we can involve more people.  

Ladies’ Singles - We would like to split this by ability as with the Men’s Singles. The format depends on the number of entries we receive. It would be great to have more ladies involved and competing at the appropriate level. Improvers and intermediates please enter and encourage your friends to.

Men’s and Ladies’ Doubles - These will follow last year’s formats. They will be split into A and B or maybe A, B and C. Players do not enter with a partner but they are drawn from other players within that group.This has proved to be a popular format in the last 3 years. We will try to find partners for everyone, but if we end up with odd numbers we may have to ballot a player out.

The Men’s Doubles Handicap, Ladies’ Doubles Handicap and Mixed Doubles Handicap will remain the same.

Mixed Doubles - This will once again be a separate 1 day event and will take place on Sunday 3rd September.  

Please read the rules before entering.

Hope You Have a Great Tournament!

  13. RULES

  14. 1. All competitors must be full adult members of Barnet L.T.C., intermediates, students or juniors with senior status -  it is not open to weekday  members. 
  15. 2. Finals Day is Saturday 8th July. Please do not enter if you are unable to play on this date. You must be available all afternoon (from 12.00p.m.), so if you have other commitments this day please don’t enter. Please inform the Tournament Referee of any holidays etc. you have booked during the tournament period and you will be advised as to whether you will be able to enter. Players taking long holidays during the tournament has caused considerable problems in previous years. If players do this without giving notice they are liable to be scratched from the tournaments, as it is unfair on other competitors. Players must be available to play on both weekday evenings and weekends. It has caused major problems in recent years when players say they either can’t play during the week or they can’t play at weekends, so you must have some availability on both. 

  16. 3. The Closing Date for entries for all events is 20th April. Players who have not paid their club membership fees before 1st May will be scratched from all events.
  17. 4. The draw will be posted on the notice board on the weekend of  22nd/23rd April. It is every player's responsibility to check the draw to see when they are playing. 
  18. 5. Both players/pairs are EQUALLY RESPONSIBLE for contacting their opponents. The player(s) who makes contact must give a choice of at least 3 dates within the play-by dates – at least 1 of these must be a weekend and at least one must be a weekday. If all the dates are refused then a walkover may be claimed. However, players should try to arrange matches within the spirit of a club competition and not deliberately try to engineer walkovers – for example, if players know their opponents are away for 3 days then offering those 3 days is not very sporting! It would also help the smooth running of the draw if the player/pair who qualify last contact the other players/pair to let them know they have played. The match winners must write the result up on the draw sheet. Every year delays are caused because results are not written in. Players may be scratched if they do not write results in as it will be assumed that the match has not been played.
  19. 6. The Tournament Referee is John Hall (Tel: 07713951489 (m), e-mail: JohnH811@aol.com). His decision in all matters is final. 
  20. 7. All matches this year will be the best of 3 sets with a tie break at 6-6 in all sets. 
  21. 8. If you would like to enter a doubles event  but have no partner please write `Partner Wanted' on your reply slip. We will then try to find a partner for you. Please do make an attempt to find a partner, as we cannot guarantee that we can pair everybody up. 
  22. 9. You can enter on-line via the website or by writing your entry on the list in the clubhouse.
  23. 10. We always aim to involve a wide range of abilities by running ‘A’, ‘B’ and sometimes ‘C’ events depending on numbers. We will follow the same pattern this year but it is difficult to be specific about every event until numbers are known.
  24. 11. Ratings – Singles results will be sent to the L.T.A. to count towards L.T.A. ratings. In order to count towards ratings both players in the match must have current L.T.A. ratings and British Tennis Memberships. 
  25. 12. Please observe the L.T.A. code of conduct in all rounds, not just the finals which are umpired.

Team Tennis 2016/17


TEAM TENNIS 2016-2017 - OVERVIEW OF FORMAT

Matches are played usually at weekends starting at 1.00p.m. and normally last between 2 and 2 and a half hours. There is a mixture of Saturday and Sunday matches, so if you are generally unavailable on either day please indicate this on your entry form. If you have very limited weekend availability it would be best not to enter as it only causes headaches for team captains. It would also help team captains if you include a mobile number and an e-mail address on your entry. You can enter either via the on-line entry or by writing your name on the list in the clubhouse. It would be good to have some new people volunteering to be captains, so please help out if possible. It’s often people who are already doing committee jobs who end up being captains too.

Players of all standards are welcome, but only adults whose membership enables them to play at weekends. Students and juniors with adult status can also enter.

Players are put into squads, each of which has a captain. I will give each captain a fixture list. The captain is responsible for liaising with other captains re match arrangements, and also picking 4 players to form a team for each match. There will be rules to limit the amount of matches each player can play, to make sure captains can’t pick their strongest players all the time. Players just turn up for the fixtures they are selected for.

There is an entry fee of £5.00 per player. This can be paid by cheque to ‘Barnet L.T.C.’ or by cash to team captains, who then pass on to The Treasurer. This money pays for the match balls.

Each fixture is made up of 6 sets, with players from each team partnering each other against their opposite numbers in doubles. Each player therefore plays 3 sets, 1 with each player in their team.

A full list of rules (including substitutions, which always an issue), fixtures and teams will be published after the closing date. The Closing Date for Entry is 20th October.

Thanks!

John Hall (Tournament Referee)

SINGLES LEAGUE COMPETITION

 

1. Players will be placed into groups and ranked according to results in any relevant club events. Each league season will last for about 6-8 weeks, when players try to play everyone in their group. At the end of the league season new divisions will be drawn up according to  results. In the event of players being level at the end of the league season, the head to head match(es), then the most number of sets then games will decide the winner. Season 2 will start as soon as the Season 1 tables have been calculated and you will be notified of the date for completion.

2. Results will be sent in to the L.T.A. to count towards player ratings.

3. Players may enter via the on-line form below or the clubhouse list. Closing date for entry is  31st October. There is no entry fee.

4. If you enter it means you are committed to taking part throughout the duration of the league, as it will spoil the event of players who are relegated a division drop out. If players do not play any matches in any league season they will run the risk of being pulled out automatically, unless they have a good reason for not having played. Please only enter if you are going to put the effort into arranging and playing matches.

5. Matches played at weekends with starting times before 1.00p.m. will be 2 short sets – first to 4 with conventional tie-break (first to 7 points and at least 2 clear) at 4-4.  A player cannot win a set 4-3 – they have to be 2 games clear or win on tie-break. In other words the set score can be 4-0, 4-1, 4-2, 5-3 or 5-4. Should it go 1 set all a match tie-break will decide the match (first to 10 and at least 2 points ahead).

Matches played after 1.00p.m. weekends or Monday to Friday, either daytime or under lights, may by mutual agreement be 2 conventional sets (i.e. up to 6 games with tie-break up to 7 at 6 games all) with a match tie-break decider at 1 set all. Unless both players agree then the match should be 2 short sets and match tie-break. Please make sure both players have agreed to the format before the start of the match! I don’t want to have to sort out disputes where 1 player says it was supposed to be short sets and the other one says it was supposed to be long sets.  If anyone plays the longer format on a weekend before 1.00p.m. the result will not be counted!

6. The match winner is responsible for recording the match result on the list in the clubhouse or you can e-mail it to me at JohnH811@aol.com

7. Players are responsible for arranging their own matches and supplying their own balls.  Where possible try not to arrange matches at peak club times e.g. Saturday mornings between 9a.m. and 12.00p.m.  Also, check the website and notice-boards for home fixtures. Singles League matches do not have priority on court over social games, so you cannot ask players to vacate a court for your match. However, once your match has started you should be allowed to complete it unless club league matches or Team Tennis matches are due to take place. Please wait for other singles leagues to finish if 2 or more are already taking place rather than taking up another court if you also have a match. 

8. The player who arranges the match shall give at least 2 dates for the match to be played. If they are both refused then the player arranging may claim a walkover. The player who arranges the match has choice of surface if both court surfaces are available.

9. Juniors are welcome to enter but must be playing full court. They will either be put into juniors only divisions or mixed with adults depending on ability.
