We regret that we will not be able to refund any entry fee on a cancellation less than 2 weeks away from the competition day.
The organisers will aim to schedule a guaranteed minimum of 3 matches for each player in singles events, and 2 matches in doubles events. Players reaching finals or playoffs may play more.
Players can only enter one category per day. Players can only enter one doubles category and only one of the Mens Band A-D singles events, as long as they are on different days. It is not possible to play Mens B and Mens C. The organisation are happy to help you choose the most appropriate category and this is largely dictated by existing rankings or bespoke advice for new players.
