METRO BLIND SPORT TENNIS TOURNAMENT 2022
This event is open to current Metro Blind Sport members only aged 16+.
By popular demand, the day will consist of a B1 singles competition and a B2-B5 mixed doubles competition. Doubles partners will be drawn out of a hat.
Registration will commence at 10:45 am until 11:15 pm in the upstairs Gallery (subject to change).
Play will start promptly at 11:30 pm and finish by 5 pm. We have three courts booked; two will be set up for B2-B5 doubles, and one for B1 singles.
Trophies will be presented in the upstairs gallery after 5 pm.
£5 per player payable on the day.
We are hoping to play a round-robin format for B1 and B2-B5’s events. This will be determined by the number of entries and will be confirmed nearer the time. We aim to have a schedule of play available one week prior to the tournament. We expect this event to be popular. In the event of having to restrict numbers, preference will be given in order of receipt of entries.
B1 players must wear eye shades. These will be inspected by the umpires before play starts.
B1 players will be allowed up to 3 bounces, B2 up to 3 bounces, B3 up to 2 bounces and B4/B5 one bounce.
White tops must be worn by all players.
A packed lunch will be provided for players, umpires and volunteers. Please bring your own water bottle.
Additional support makes a big difference by helping us deliver a great tennis tournament for all. Please let us know of any volunteers/umpires who are free to help along with any family, friends and colleagues who may also be able to assist on the day.
