September Singles Box League

We are excited to be restarting our successful Singles Box League, in September, for all Brondesbury members. 

As players will be split into leagues depending on ability, this is a great opportunity for members of ALL standards to play more regularly, keep fit and improve their game in competitive but friendly matches.

Each round will run for approximately 10 weeks, during which time you will be expected to have played everyone in your league. Matches will be one set, arranged at a mutually convenient time. However, there are to be no matches played during Club Social times. These include Saturday and Sundays 10.00am – 12.00pm.

To sign up for the league please email Marina before Tuesday 1st September.

The more the merrier so please do get involved!
