Minety Tennis Club and The Nelson Trust proudly invite players to enter their Open Mixed Tennis Tournament on Saturday 13th July 2019. The event will raise money for the club but predominantly for The Nelson Trust.
The tournament will be played on private courts in and around the village of Minety, the finals being played on the club courts. So that all standards can enjoy their tennis, the morning sessions will be seeded and played on a handicapped system. The afternoon groups will be formed based on the results of the morning session and they will compete in the Championship and Plate groups.
Morning coffee, two-course lunch, afternoon tea and cake are included in the entry fee. A licensed bar will be open during the finals. Please note that vegetarian meal options will be available.

To enter please complete the attached Entry Form. Please note that it is a condition of the court owners and organisers that competitors sign a Waiver and Release. By signing the entry form you agree to be bound by its terms. Entries without signatures will be discarded. All entries will be considered on a first come first served basis as received by the Tournament Organiser at the postal address stated below.
As a courtesy to the court owners, players should ensure they wear predominately white clothes and non-marking tennis shoes. It would be worth packing a deckchair or picnic blanket, as not all courts will have sufficient seating; they will also be useful for the finals.
