Our club championships are always eagerly awaited by our members each summer. Everyone is encouraged to take part and enter whatever standard you think you are!
We have mens, ladies and mixed categories and both singles and doubles. If you don’t have a partner, don’t worry, please sign up and we will endeavour to find one for you. We can guarantee some fun and healthy competition. The finals are always followed by an awards ceremony and our end of season party.
We run an informal and fun singles box ladder open to adult and junior members from virtual beginners to our best players. Normally these are held over five or six weeks, offering a chance to pitch your skills against similar level players and try to advance in the ladder.
You will be emailed a list of people to play by a set date, and can arrange the matches at a time convenient to you. You put your scores down on the sheet in the club house entrance hall. Once all matches have been completed, the organiser will move you up, down, or keep you in the same box, depending on how many points you scored.
It isn’t just about winning, if you have a close game you can still achieve enough points to stay up or maybe even win your box, depending on how your competitors did. Points are awarded per game won, and the format is the best of nine games with a tie break at 8-8.
It’s a great way to meet and play with people of a similar ability who enjoy playing singles. Check out this video from Julie who explains more noltc.co.uk/galleries/videos/singles-boxes
