The capacity of entry numbers is 64 individuals so please fill out the entry form and get them back to me as soon as you can! Entries close on Friday 25 November at 5 pm. Players are to enter as singles players, and we will randomly create pairs teams together. This will ensure everyone will be included and meet new people.
The BBQ will be fired up, and music will be pumping throughout the tournament and hopefully, the sun will be shining! We are really excited about this and think it will a very fun day.
