DTC Fun TournamentDumfries Tennis Club will be running an American (mixed) doubles event on Sunday 28th April from 12pm to 2pm or there abouts. This will be part of a series of American tournaments which are designed to be a bit of fun with a small competitive edge. There will be 5 or 6 events over the summer, depending on weather, with an overall winner after the last event. You can choose to play 1 event, 2 events or as many as you want to. The more you play and the more you win then the better chance you have of winning the trophy.

The basic American Tournament rules are;

  • Each player on the day will be placed into 1 of 2 groups i.e. Group G and Group L,
  • 1 player from Group G will play with a player from Group L, players can only play with players from the opposite group,
  • A set will consist of 8 or 6 or 4 games, depending on numbers,
  • Both players gets a point for each game they win and the games get adjusted over the months to match.
  • Partners change after each set.

Hopefully the weather will be ok on the day and look forward to seeing you there.
