Entries being accepted for 2018 Veterans’ Championships



Marlborough College, April 7/8th

Organiser John Hawke is now accepting entries for the National Veterans’ (over 45s) Championships, which are making a return to Marlborough College this year. To be held over the weekend of April 7/8th, the tournament will include both singles and doubles championships. Matt Cavanagh is the defending singles champion, while in the doubles it’s John Minta and Andy Pringle (above), all three of whom are looking for their third successive titles.

Qualifying age is 45 years on or before 7th April 2018, with the Singles event completed on Saturday (start time approx 12pm) and the Doubles played on Sunday (start time approx 10am). There will be Plate competitions for those eliminated in the early rounds each day. Players interested in taking part in the Doubles, but lacking a partner, are very welcome to submit their names and contact details, and John will make every effort to match them up with a compatible partner.

The organiser is keen to point out that, to take part, you don’t need to be a star player. The event is set up to give players as much Fives as they can stand, with numerous plate and other competitions, and the energy used whilst playing can be replenished by consuming the copious food provided by the organiser and his helpers.

Entries must be received by Sunday 1st April. And, for full details, click on the link below to download the official entry form.
