How to start playing
New members are welcome to join at any point, but you will need to wait until the start of the next round before you can begin playing. There are four rounds a year of singles, so you shouldn't have to wait long.

- It’s divided into groups of about 6 players of a similar standard. Everyone in their group plays everyone else on the Golden Lane courts unless another venue suits both parties
- Matches are short format, designed to be played in an hour. You get one point for every set you win.
- It’s up to everyone to arrange their own matches and book and pay for their own courts.
At the end of the round, the top one or two players go up to the next group, and the bottom oneor two go down.
