Format:Mixed Doubles Round Robin (with a handicap twist)
This format calls for each participant to play with as many different partners as possible over two to four 45 minute periods (over two days), depending on how many people sign up. A handicap system will be put in place to compensate for differences in individual playing levels. You sign up individually for this tournament. It is really is a fun filled format.
You can sign up for one day of play (Saturday or Sunday) or for the two days in the Mixed Doubles category. Matches will start between 9AM and 10AM depending on the number of participants and will end around 11AM or 12PM. For the more competitive men amongst you, you can sign up (in pairs) for a traditional knock-out tournament. This category will only be played if we have at least 8 teams signed up. All matches for this group, with the exception of the finals must be played before Saturday the 27th. The finals will be played on Sunday the 28th on the Tennis Club de Genève's Center Court in front of a multitude of spectators. Note: The TC de Genève strictly enforces a "white tennis attire" rule.
Sign up fees
The fee for Saturday play alone is CHF15 and for the two days including the post play festivities on Sunday the 28th CHF55. Prize giving, cocktails and lunch will take place on Sunday the 28th following play (around 12:30/13:00). Note: Participants in the knock-out category will also be asked to contribute with CHF55. Non players are encouraged to come and watch the matches on both days and if so inclined to join the players for cocktails and lunch on Sunday (for a small fee of CHF45).
Awards, Prizes and Accolades will be given the the players having won the highest number of games over one day or the two days depending on how they signed up.
