The Harris Scarfe Monday Ladies Doubles Competition is the longest running in the club and although the numbers have dwindled quite a bit over the past 10 years it’s still a popular and fun way to start the week. The teams are put together by selectors who aim ensure that all teams are of similar ability.
There are two divisions with three players in each team and everyone plays 4 sets of doubles per match. In the case of a draw in sets the winning team is the one with the highest number of games won. Some of the ladies have been playing for over 20 years and others are just starting off so there’s room for all age groups and abilities. We begin at around 9.30am and are usually finished around 1.30pm.
There are two competitions each year – from February to June, then from July to December.
