FA Cup Tennis

Join us again in the autumn for a knock-out tennis competition. The tournament uses an FA Cup style draw, with no seedings, and with a new draw made for each round. FA Cup Tennis is a singles-only competition, with early round matches being played at weekends and after school during the autumn term. Semi-finals and the Final are played on Finals Day – a Sunday afternoon in November.  All winners receive trophies, and runners up receive medals. As a consolation prize, all 1st round singles losers in the summer tournament will be entitled to free entry into FA Cup Tennis 2017.
