Bury TT Championships 2017 - Important Notice & Entries So Far
Sunday April 2nd at Hulme Grammar School Sports Hall, Chamber Road, Oldham, OL8 4DJ
*Note the venue is the sports hall - not the grammar school*
To find the venue if you are coming up chamber road as it starts to get steep look out for slightly recessed gate posts on your left hand side - the hall is through those posts. When coming up the steep hill if you reach the traffic lights you have gone too far. Alternatively if you are coming down chamber road go through the lights and the recessed posts are about 30 yards on your right hand side.
The car park can hold about 30 cars - we have 68 entrants so if you aren’t early you will struggle to get on the car park in which case you will need to park on the surrounding streets.
I will arrive approximately 8.00 so you can turn up any time after that. We do NOT have access to the venue the day before and setting up will be done on the morning so if you have 15 minutes to spare please arrive early (a) to bag a car parking space, and (b) to assist with setting up.
The order of play (approx) is:
9.00am Open Singles Group Stages*
12noon Juniors, 50’s & Super Veterans
1.30pm Divisional Handicaps
1.30pm Continuation of all events
*7 players - Barry Elliott, Steve Scowcroft, Dave Scowcroft, Majid Tubassum, Khamal Hussain, Graham Jeffries & Mark Ramsbottom are exempt from the group stages and should arrive in time for their 1st doubles match.
**Joe Evans, Jack Evans, Jenna Roach, Mark Reading & Ken Crimes have not entered the open singles so don’t need to be there ready to start playing at 9. Everybody else does.
These times are approximate and will be adjusted slightly dependant on the speed of previous events. The times are not rigid. If you have a match to play and you can see your opponent stood around and there is an empty table, talk to me, grab your scorecard and get on with it!
The format for events is:
Open Singles: Groups of 4 or 5. Top 2 progressing to a straight KO played up to semi final stage.
Doubles, Over 50’s, Division 1 Handicap, Division 2 Handicap - Straight KO played to a finish.
Super Veterans - Straight KO played up to the final. The final is played on finals night.
Division 3, 4 & 5 handicap. Groups of 3 or 4 with the top 2 progressing to KO stages and played to a finish.
Juniors. 4 Groups of 4, Top 2 advance to quarter finals. Semi’s & Finals to be played on finals night.
Finals night will be on Tuesday 4th April at Elton Vale Sports Club, BL8 2RZ from 7pm
Fees - The fee’s for the championships are £4 for the 1st event you enter and £3 for all subsequent events. Juniors get 1 event for free. Pay on the day at the door as you arrive.
Below is a list of entrants, the events you are in and the amounts due. If you aren’t on the list I don’t have your entry so please get in touch so I can shoehorn you into the draws.
Trophies - If you won one of the main trophies last year (the one’s that have to be returned annually) then please feel free to bring it with you on Sunday and give it me back ready for Tuesday’s finals night.
As for Finals night as always the Junior Semi Finals will open play at 7pm and the night will finish with a best of 7 sets for the open singles title. After that all trophies will be presented. As always for finals night there will be a collection plate on the door and a voluntary contribution is requested but not essential. Hot food will be available as always, served at around 8.30pm.
Important - We always present trophies after the finals so the presentations tend to begin around 10pm. Every year without fail I get an e-mail the morning after from a parent saying it was too late on a school night for their child. When we have the hot food interval (approx 8.30) if you want your trophy presenting then please talk to me on the night and this is fine.
For those unable to attend finals night it will be live streamed - there will be an e-mail on Monday or Tuesday next week advising you of where you can watch it. Some of the later matches on Sunday will also be live streamed via the leagues facebook page.
