Below is attached entry form for the singles, doubles, mixed doubles, captains and over 50`s.
The Doubles is on Saturday 6th January 2018 and the Singles on Sunday 7th January 2018 at the Mid Sussex Conservative Club ( now known as the Burgess Hill Constitutional Club ), 1-3 Cyprus Road, Burgess Hill, RH17 8DX.
The Mixed, Captains and over 50s will be played at venues around the county, unfortunately there was not enough support for these to go ahead last season, and the criteria of at least 8 entries for each competition will stand this year to make these viable this season.
I know it is early but thought get this underway so dates known and plenty of time to get those entries in and keep the weekend free.
Doing the draw next week for all competitions, so will give people until mid day 27th December to enter.
Still need more entries in the Mixed Doubles, Captains and Over 50s for these to go ahead, at the moment 4 Mixed, 5 Captains and only 1 over 50s. Need minimum 8 entries in a competition for them to go ahead.
Numbers down on last year on the singles and doubles following the trend in National Events and Opens.
Draw done last evening at the Albion by Rick Cunningham, thank you to him.
Thanks to Dave Ingram who is doing the formatting and times, he will publish the draw once he has collated the tables and times.
In advance thank you to Dave Alder who is delivering the tables next Friday, and to the Burgess Hill Constitutional Club for hosting us, and also to Ros Appleby who has been liaising with the Club for me.
Tables all in and set up, thank you to the club for looking after the team this morning. Made us feel very welcome, and were interested in what was going on.
Thank you to Dave Alder for delivering the tables and to Rick Cunningham, Ros Appleby, Bob Hall, James Whittle and Stuart Mepham for helping get everything set up, tables off and in and to Stuart for setting the tables up. Thanks to Ros for letting us use her table for the competitions and putting it on free play.
In advance thanks to Dave Ingram for all his help with the admin, and lastly but not least to all the players who support the competitions.
Good luck to all taking part this weekend, remember there will be a plate both days.
Will take entries for the Mixed Pairs, Captains and Over 50s at the weekend, but closure will be 5pm Sunday, at the moment captains definitely goes ahead, mixed looking hopeful, but would need more over 50s.
