We are delighted to announce that Dumfries and Galloway will be running a Mini Red Tour for the 2017 winter season.
The Mini Red Tour started in 2016 and was a great success, it is a great opportunity for players 8 and under (born on or after 1 April 2008) to get some competitive experience under their belts without having to travel too far, improve their ratings and hopefully have lots of great fun playing a wonderful sport that we hope they will play for many years to come.
HOW IT WORKS
The tour this time consists of 3 competitions at Dumfries on Sunday January 29th – 1pm to 4pm, Annan on Saturday February 18th – 12pm to 3pm and at Moffat on Sunday March 26th – 2pm to 5pm.
Each event has the same draw format (round robin groups) followed by knockout matches with group winners and second places going through to the main draw and group losers going into the consolation event (subject to numbers and interest). We are looking to run both girls and boys events at each venue with both having their own leaderboard.
Individual performance at each venue is rewarded with points ranging from 100 for winning the event to 5 for losing in the first round of the consolation. These points are accumulated over the 3 events and the top boy and girl will receive a trophy each. There will also be medals awarded at each event for the top 3 players in each category.
The leaderboards will be updated via email to the club contacts following each event with reports being regularly posted on D&G Tennis website as well as the local papers. The results for each event should be displayed on the website. www.dumfriesandgallowaytennis.com
Having said all that, the main priority is enjoyment and improvement and you don’t have to play in every event as you can dip in and out as you wish ALTHOUGH 50 BONUS POINTS WILL BE AWARDED TO THOSE DOING ALL 3 EVENTS.
