Spring 2011 Indoor Open Series
Following the success of the Masters Series and as a result of requests to continue running some Open events during the Spring, we are running a series of three indoor events which will be open to adults and juniors alike and have been sanctioned as Grade 3 Open tournaments.
The format for each will be similar to the Masters Series in that the draw will be composed of up to 16 players and provided the draw remains full the intention is to offer 4 matches over the weekend with match times starting mid to late afternoon. Unlike the Masters series there will be no points allocated by ourselves and there will be no series finals. Unless players become injured we would expect players to compete in all the scheduled matches during the weekend. In the event of the A draw becoming full then we have sanction to run a B draw at Grade 4.
Entries to any of the Series events can be made online through the LTA main website with electronic payment through PayPal - an easy link to it can be found below. The cost of entry in this manner is £26 (as we incur charges through PayPal). Alternatively, provided you have previously played in one of our events we are happy for you to phone/text your entry to Donna on 07710 402715 or you can e-mail her on [email protected] but please either ensure that you receive an acknowledgement to your e-mail entry or look at the tournament information on the LTA website to check that your name has been included in the draw. If you enter via e-mail or phone then we are quite happy to accept a lesser payment of £25 on the first day of the event either by cheque or cash but not credit card.
The dates of the events are shown below. The entry fee is non refundable after the withdrawal date regardless of the reason. The draws for each event will appear on a link on the front page shortly before each event or you can go directly to the LTA website. Matches will consist of two tie break sets and a match tie break if necessary to determine the winner, in the event of a match being one set all.
(Please note that the closing date for entries is 12 O'clock mid-night on the Saturday immediately prior to the start of each event)
