The Barrett
Trophy

The Barrett Trophy

sunday 3rd july 1:30pm

This is one of our traditional tournaments founded in 1977 by former member, John Barrett, and is still played in his memory. John gave many years of dedicated service to the club as a player and committee member. Famous for his lob shots, he was also a strong lobbyist for the sport, helping run the Sarum League and he was even a linesman at Wimbledon!

 

If you have not played in this event before, this is a good one to try out.  The format is mixed doubles, but you enter individually. On the day you will be randomly drawn a partner and in each ‘round’ you play 4 games with and then 4 games against your partner (involving the other pair on your court). The tournament continues in this way with your drawn partner moving from court to court.  

 This is always a very popular tournament and places are limited, so please book early. The cost is £4 to include tea/coffee, cakes and biscuits.  If you would like to participate, please either sign-up HERE online or put your name down on the sign-up sheet in the Clubhouse.
