Our aim is to promote competitive play at all levels alongside social and recreational play and in our first year introduced both Senior and Junior Cup/Plate competitions, these will both be free to enter annual events held normally in August or September before the main competitive season gets underway. In subsequent years we hope to introduce further competitions, possibly a Doubles event and a veterans event.

Senior Cup & Plate competition

This is open to all adult (over 18) Club members. It is a drawn competition and may be seeded. Players are handicapped by the Club Committee members based on their performance during the preceding 12 months in the Senior League and HDTTA tournaments.

Players knocked out in the first round automatically enter the Plate competition. This ensures at least two matches for all entrants regardless of standard/ability. We have a Perpetual trophy for both Cup and Plate winners which will be engraved with the year and name of the winner. Runners up in both also receive trophies to keep.

Junior Cup & Plate competition

This is open to all Junior (under 18) Club regulars and members and takes place in September each year.

The precise format used each time varies and depends on the numbers entered, but it is usually started with a draw and then knockout or league (Round Robin) matches to determine Cup & Plate winners/runners up.

Players are handicapped by the Club Committee members based on their performance during the preceding 12 months in the Junior League and HDTTA tournaments. Monday Club night performance and sometimes behaviour can also have a bearing.

Perpetual Trophies are presented and engraved for the winners of both Cup & Plate. Engraved Runners up medals are presented and everyone receives at least a token medal for taking part.
