The Monaleen GAA Tennis Club Games Committee is arranging the graded Singles and graded Mixed Doubles Championships for 2016. They will take place between Saturday April 23rd and Saturday 14th May.
These competitions are open to all senior members. Your games will be against players of similar ability. The Games Committee encourages all members to participate in these competitions.
Both competitions will consist of a round robin element on one night with players and pairings qualifying for a QF/SF depending on the numbers participating. Please advise if you are not available on a particular date and the committee will make every effort to take this into consideration. The finals day will be Saturday 14th May. However, the committee understands that players may have alternative arrangements for that date so a final may be played in advance of this date if it suits both players / pairings. Because of the requirement to have the presentations on the night of Saturday 14th May, it is important that all finals are played no later than the time allocated for the final. Where agreement cannot be reached for the time of the final, the allocated time by the committee stands.
Singles There will be competitions for Women and Men. The groups will be graded. Each group will play their round robin matches of first to 7 games. The winner will receive 10 points and the loser will receive the number of games they won in the match. All scores are recorded and the top 2 players will qualify for a QF/SF – depending on the number of entries.
