The IT Sports Ladies Doubles Tournament 2014

The IT Sports Ladies Doubles Tournament – reborn!

After an absence of a year, the ladies doubles round robin IT Sports Tournament returns in 2014 – with some enhancements.

The IT Sports tournament will be held on Saturday 6th September and follow the usual round robin format, but will take place all on one day. For those of you unfamiliar with this, it’s a league-wide trophy which couples from any club and all divisions can enter.  This will take place at Bishopthorpe Tennis Club (and other locations if numbers dictate).

In addition, there will be a new IT Sports Too handicapped round robin competition for players from leagues 3-6. This will be held on the same day at Fulford Tennis Club and University of York tennis courts.  The idea of this new tournament is to encourage participation and fun. There is a brand new trophy donated by IT Sports to be won.

For both events, there will be an entry fee of £5 to cover expenses. Any money left after covering expenses will be donated to the Cancer Care Centre at York hospital. There will also be a raffle to raise money for this charity. They provide information and support for anyone affected by cancer and require all the help we can give. Tickets are £1 and will be available on the day, but also in advance from your club and from Bishopthorpe Tennis Club.  Prizes already secured include a family day pass to Castle Howard, individual coaching sessions provided by coaches at University of York, a family day pass to Yorvik, cinema ticket for 2 at City Screen, tennis backpacks and more.

To add to the fun of the day, there is an optional theme for the event – wear something green. There are prizes to win for originality and ingenuity! Also throughout the events, spot prizes will be given for various categories – none of them serious!


Further information is available from as well as the the Entry form. Please ensure you have entered before 5pm on 23rd August as there will be a prize draw for all entrants then, for a day’s racing for 2 at York race course on Sunday 7th September, in the County stand.
