After a fun and competitive Handicaps we now move onto the much anticipated 2022 Club Championships. Entries are now open on the TI website at Sandycove Senior Championships. The Championships will run from Sunday 14th August to the finals day on Saturday 27th August.
A maximum of three events can be entered and the final date for entries is Wednesday 3rd August at 6pm. Sign up will be through the usual online TI software Sandycove Senior Championships 2022
NB – Post completion of your entry you should receive an email confirmation from TI. If you have not received this email confirmation please try again as your entry will not have not been saved correctly. If you continue to have an issue please contact your captains at email@example.com
It will be a packed programme over the two weeks and when entering please, where possible, add your availability as this will greatly assist with the match scheduling. This year we are expecting a large number of entries and therefore it must be noted that entrants should largely be available in the evenings, particularly across the second week.
For the 8UP doubles competitions the most recent DLTC league (Summer 2022) will be used as a reference. The combined league classes of both players must be equal to or greater than 8, e.g. a player in Class 3 can play with anyone who has played Class 5 or above. In the case of a new member or a player who has not competed in the last DLTC league, the Championship Tournament Committee will decide on the appropriate Class.
We will also be running the usual Mixed Doubles Lucky Dip competition. This is fun but competitive event where your tournament committee will draw up pairings with players welcome to enter.
We will be hosting a Championships Finals Night celebration on Saturday 27th August in Killiney Golf Club. More detail to follow but for now please put the date in your diary.
Best of luck to everyone and we look forward to seeing you on court and on the balcony!
Mandy, Jenny, Paul and Greg
TI Instructions –
Create a Tennis Ireland tournament Profile (this is different to a DLTC profile). Simply log onto the website Tennis Ireland Tournament Software and create (bottom left of the home page) your own unique profile and log in password. Do remember to enter ‘Gender’. Once registered you will receive a confirmation email together with your PIN number.
Once registered and logged in, go to the ‘Tournaments Tab’ and enter Sandycove Senior Championships in the Search bar or directly to Sandycove Senior Championships. This will bring you to the Tournament online entry page where you enter the events that you wish to play in (For the 2022 Championships a Maximum 3 events per person are allowed) and in the case of doubles your partners name and PIN number. Should you not have a doubles partner the software will allow you request one. For those entering the Lucky DIP mixed doubles event enter your own details only, you will be allocated a partner in the draw.
Once step one and two are completed you will see at the bottom of the online entry page a facility to let the Tournament organisers know if there are dates/times where you are unavailable. All those entering the Championships should in principle be available for the tournament dates so as to best assist the Club in planning and executing a great event.
