Entries open for 2017 President’s Cup



St Paul’s School, Barnes, 10th December 2017

Following the success of the email-based entry system which has been used over the last few years, organiser Gareth Price will be continuing with it for this year’s RFA Club President’s Cup.

However, before we go any further, we should draw players’ attention to the the venue for this year’s event: St Paul’s School in Barnes. Sadly, the courts at the usual venue, Merchant Taylors’, are not available…

The entry form is being distributed by email and here on the RFA website, and we ask everyone who would like to be considered for an entry into the competition to apply to the organiser by email. If you do not have access to email, he will also accept entries by telephone. He will acknowledge receipt of every application, and all entries must be received by Thursday December 7th. Then, on Friday 8th, a random draw will take place to select from the applicants the 32 players who will compete on the day, as well as a list of reserves, all of whom will be notified immediately of their successful application.

Finally, one word of warning from the organiser: the President’s Cup (won in 2016 by Dan Tristao and Morgan Spillane, pictured above with the trophy) is an extremely physical, full day of fives, and should the competitors have any doubts whatsoever about their ability to be on court for five hours, they need to line up/bring a suitable substitute.
