yeah, i'm gonna go- i went a couple of years ago, it was great, i'm a little disappointed that they've spread it over a couple of days though - means finding somewhere to stay so that you can play both doubles events.
on the subject though - does anybody wanna partner up before the event? i usually put partner wanted, but if anybody entering the league mixed or mens doubles events i'll happily play with them.
hell - i'd even get a BC tshirt so that we could have a team kit
i would recommend people entering this - it's a good way to meet new people..

just out of curiosity, what's the standard like, do they have different draws for different age groups or levels?

Social is for those who haven't ever played in league teams.
league is for those who play in local league teams.
The entry is restricted to players that have never played in Inter County Championships or for National Squads of any country.
so the standard in the league competition can be quite varied.
If i remember rightly last time there was a group stage in all the disciplines so you don't just get one match and then your out.
It's all very well run, and a lot of fun

If they are anything like the Scottish format then you are arranged in groups of 4-5 where you play everyone else and the winner of the pool goes through to the knockout stages to play the winners of the other groups.
As for the level it is aimed at the player who would enter the Satellite and below, so again a varied standard even if you adhere to this listing.
I'm thinking of travelling down for a bit of an outing
Don't know how my knees will hold up though
But as Neil points out they are a good day out!!

All events will be played in groups with winners going through to a knockout stage.
I don't see the scoring format mentioned anywhere.
It's possible that it might be 1x21 in the group and then 3x15 in the knockout
It may depend on number of entries.

from what i remember it was best of three to 15,
i'd imagine they'd keep the same rules.
i can't stress enough how much fun it was. we had some stonking games last time.
i'm sure your knees will be fine Phil, the floor is gorgeous, nice and sprung...

I'll see you there, now if only I could find a doubles partner.......................
The Scottish ones are all games to 21 with no setting, except in the last one there were only 4 courts and it was 1 to 15.
What a letdown!

now if i could find a mixed partner for it..
can't remember how many courts there are at NBC - quite a few i seem to remember 6, maybe 7 i think.
Phil - if you want a mens partner i'm certainly up for a laugh.
