American Doubles

Dumfries Tennis Club are running a series of American (mixed) doubles events over the summer, generally on Sundays from 12pm to 2pm or there abouts.

These tournaments 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.
