We will play all the tournaments in the order below (with the exception of the Barrett Pot which is Doubles) on the following basis:

1. I invite members to enter.
2. Those interested reply to me.
3. I let everyone know who is playing and do an initial draw to get things going.
4. Players book a lawn using the new electronic system.
5. Send me the results.
6. Players then play another person. 
7. With all games played, we have a winner!
