Open and handicap tournaments

Most will now be aware that the draws for these tournaments are now on the club noticeboard and on the website at

We are well aware that there is always a busy time for courts at the end of September when floodlights are needed in the evenings. The best way to minimise this is to get those early rounds played as soon as possible, so please fix up your matches as soon as you can. Don't wait for your opponents to contact you, and if you are going away, please make contact before you disappear! 

We will be reviewing all aspects of the change of tournament dates once the season has finished, and are aware that several of you would have liked a plate tournament in the open. Rest assured that there will be plates for 1st match losers in the handicap tournament, where those matches have been played on time. 

The RLTC traditional fancy dress end of season party will happen on the day of the handicap tournament finals (Sat October 20th), with a Race Night to keep us all entertained. Keep the date clear! 

In the meantime, have a really good rest of summer on and off the courts
