Summer Festival - August 2018

As the Devonshire Park complex is undergoing extensive refurbishment, they will not have space to accommodate us for the Summer Meeting in 2018. We will therefore not be going to Eastbourne, and will instead be holding a one-off Summer Festival in 2018 between 3rd and 19th August.

  • The main weekend competitions will be held at the Royal National Hotel in London.
    Friday 3rd - Sunday 5th August: the Swiss Pairs Championship (preceded by an Open Pairs on Friday afternoon).
    Friday 17th - Sunday 19th August: the Four Stars Swiss Teams Championship (preceded by a Point-a-Board Teams on Friday afternoon).
  • Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th August - One day Swiss Pairs (venue TBC)
  • The Summer Meeting's main midweek competitions will continue to take place, and will be held in the fortnight between the two weekend competitions - provisionally on 6th/7th and 15th/16th August. These may be run as multi-venue events (locations TBC), and will include a London venue so you can combine playing in these competitions and the weekend events.
  • There won’t be any Seniors competitions held during this fortnight, but new Seniors competitions have been added to the Scarborough Summer Congress which will take place 25th-29th July.
  • There will be a Really Easy Congress in the summer of 2018 but details are still to be finalised.
  • Details of the U26 Championship Pairs are yet to be confirmed.

More details will be made available as soon as possible.

The 2018 Summer Seniors Congress
Although the refurbishment will affect the Summer Meeting in 2018, the Summer Seniors Congress will still take place in Eastbourne, using the facilities at the tennis centre on the far side of the Devonshire Park complex.
