MIXED DOUBLES 2017  Although we have only 9 entries we have decided to go ahead with the mixed doubles in the hope that a few more will enter on the day.  The competition will be held at Kings Norton BC at 11am on Sunday 11th June.  Obviously we can only accept a maximum of 18 pairs so to be sure to get your place please text Gary Pritchard on 07774 320235 before you travel.  Gary Pritchard, Competition Secretary

NORTHFIELD MIXED DOUBLES SUNDAY 11TH JUNE 11AM START

The closing date for entries into the mixed pairs has passed and we only have received 5 entries.  This event is usually well suported so we will allow until the end of the week to accept further entries, but unless we get a minimum of 12 entries the competition will not go ahead.  Please pass this message on to all club members.

 

The South Birmingham Ladies mixed doubles took place last Sunday and it was noticeable  that quite a few partnerships were made up of youngsters and it may be that in future we should avoid Junior County days.  Any other thoughts to improve entries would be welcome.  Gary Pritchard, Competition Secretary.

Substitutes Can I remind clubs of the new rule which allows clubs to use a substitute in a game if they are a player short.  Please read Rule 7c which sets out the details. Bev Pritchard, Association Secretary

Competition Entries 2017  Please note that due to little or no entries in previous years no date has been set for the Under 21 or Over 60's Merits this season.  We have therefore not set a date for this competition but have distributed entry sheets asking for anyone interested to send in their entries WITHOUT payment so that we can see if there is enough interest.  Obviously as the date is not set we will ot ask you to confir entries until we notify you of the actual date the competiton will be played on.

The closing date for people to indicate their interest was set for 5th May to give us enough time to arrange a date but as of today I hae only received one entry each for the Under 21 and Over 60's Merits.

Please email me on bevpritchardtax@blueyonder.co.uk if you are interested in either of these competitions.   I am particularly keen to get the Under 21 competition off the ground and would encourage all youngsters to come and have a go.  We did try reducing the age to 18 in previous years to try and encourage the younger players but as this didn't increase the entries we have reverted to Under 21.  As an additional encouragement I will be adding an additional prize of £50 personally to the top under 16 year old on the day, so even if they don't win the competition they will still win some money.
