    Default Veterans in London

    Are there any clubs that are mainly for veteran players in London?

    Also, are there any veterans tournaments in London? I've never even seen a veterans' tournament and it'd be interesting to see what the standard is like.

    Looking down the lists of veterans tournaments, many seem to be far away in Wales or Cornwall or up north. The nearest ones I've found so far are the ones in Kent and Milton Keynes.

    dunno about clubs specifically for Vets

    There is the Veteran tournament circuit, with A,B, and C tournaments
    (similar to Elite,Challenger,Satellite)
    you can get a list from the BE website
    I played in the singles at Cumbria and Northumberland recently.
    Pretty low turnout for singles. Doubles is where the action is.
    A and B grade must offer all age groups and events
    C grade do not have to, and might not offer the singles

    Near-ish to you there is also the Hampshire (C grade 28/29 Jan)
    and West of England Masters (at Bath, B grade 11/12 Feb)


    Then there is the Inter Country Veterans


    In a neighbouring area to me I think there is a local veterans league, like a normal club league.

    Default Vets

    Thanks Neil

    Guess I'll check out the satellite tournaments first, see what they're like.

    Cheers
