Let battle commence!
Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to run The Shropshire County Championships this year. However, Tennis Shropshire have been working hard to ensure that there is some tennis activity in Shropshire during the traditional week.
A few weeks ago we were engrossed with the LTA's Battle of the Brits event and Tennis Shropshire have decided to mark the normal County Championships week with the Battle of Shropshire!!
The Battle of Shropshire will see 2 teams, Team Sabin and Team Broadbent competing throughout the week with the matches being counted in a cumulative total, with lots of fun & engaging social media activity throughout the week. The hope is that all players in Shropshire will come together and enjoy competing in this new team format! The week will go as follows:
Sunday 23rd August - Mini Orange & Adults
Monday 24th August - Mini Green
Tuesday 25th August - U11 & U16
Wednesday 26th August - U12 & Adults
Thursday 27th August - U14 & Adults
Friday 28th August - U18
Saturday 29th August - Mini Red & Adults
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions we will be aiming to play all matches outdoors and will restrict the amount of players at the venue at any one time. However, social media will ensure you can follow your teams' progress throughout the week!
All players will play a mixture of singles & doubles and play as many matches as possible. With over 100 entries it’s sure to be a fantastic week of tennis right here in Shropshire.
