Southend & DTTL 2017 Annual Closed Championships
Xmas is on the horizon, New Year's Eve, Snow, Ice and then we are back with the Southend & DTTL Annual Closed Championships in February.
Once again, Jayne & I will be the Championship Controllers. The Sub Committee will be again headed by John Poysden, who will be joined by George Reeves, Kevin Read, Charles Sweeny and, new this year, Chris Jacob.
For his second year, we have Anthon Ranjit-Singh running the Vets Singles. You will see that we will play the Vets Doubles separately this year, because quite simply, there were too many Vets to finish the Event last year on the Friday.
The Venue is again Rayleigh Leisure Centre, which has been so successful for the past 9 years: good Parking, good Cafe, plenty of Room, friendly helpful Staff, a good Playing Area and most important of all a Great Atmosphere.
We will have 10 Tables this year, with a gap in the middle of the Room for spectators etc, which will be an improvement on last year.
This is a Championship, not just for the Stars, although they seem to love it, but for the opportunity of mixing socially with the players that play in your Division. So, do try and join us.
We have averaged in recent years, some 130 Competitors each year, it's possibly the largest Local Championships in the UK.
The Entry Form will appear on our Web Site soon. Have a look, try and Enter via the 'E' Button on our Web Site.
For those of you who wish to send in Paper Entries, not electronic, please send them to Ken Field, 81 The Broadway, Thorpe Bay, Southend-on-Sea, Essex SS1 3HQ
It will be a great help if you can pay your Entry Fees Electronically, as it makes it a lot easier for us to collate the Entry's, but if not, then you can still send a Cheque to Chris Jacob, our Treasurer.
Your Committee wish you 'a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year'
At this time, we also think of our loved ones that some have lost and those unwell.
Ken Field & Jayne Johnson
