This year’s Fehr Cup will be held on Wednesday 26 June at Surbiton Rackets and Fitness Club.
Tennis, Pimms, summer lunch with strawberries and cream, this fantastic networking opportunity for tennis players of all levels is a must in the shipping social calendar. Taking place on the grass courts of Surbiton and including lunch and tea in the clubhouse. The tournament is split into two parts, after an initial stage, more social players can enjoy an afternoon of relaxed open competition in the American Tournament, while the pros peel off to dual for the ‘Fehr Cup’ prize.
Any firm represented on the Baltic Exchange is eligible to enter one or more pairs. However, both players must be from the same member company, but the people do not have to be Baltic members themselves. Any player may be substituted but still needs to work for the same company.
Both male and female players are welcome, and the pairs can be in any combination. The matches will be the best of three sets in the main draw with a tie break at six-all in each set.
The games will be on grass (weather permitting) with play commencing at 10am sharp. The Club asks that players do not wear trainers or running shoes in order to protect the grass for the season.
The entry fee is £75 per pair, payable in advance. This fee includes the courts, coffee, lunch and afternoon tea for all players, as well as prizes for the placed teams in both tournaments. Catering for non-players is priced at £15 per head, but this also needs to be booked in advance.
The Tournament will be refereed by Perry Perera, with the American format arranged by Costas Mamarides, who will umpire the main final.
The points gained in this Tournament will go towards the David Bradley Cup. Pictures from last year’s event can be found here.
