On the first Sunday morning of each month, we hold an American Tournament. These are friendly events, open to all senior and student members, whatever their standard of play. To even things up, partnerships are picked out of a hat and halfway through each match couples swap partners so that each person plays half the games with their partner and the other half against him or her. It's great fun and a good opportunity to meet other members and have some entertaining games of tennis.
Individual's scores are totted up and there are prizes (usually a bottle of wine) for the highest scoring lady and the highest scoring gent and Kit Kats for those at the other end of the scoring spectrum. The monthly scores also go towards the Alan Tait Trophy which is awarded at the end of the season to the player with the highest total score.
