At the STBA we offer many types of competitions throughout the year, including both rosters and tournaments. Currently due to COVID-19 we are only beginning to restart our competitions. At this stage we are running a Lightning Roster during August and we will hopefully offer more competitions after the conclusion of the first Lightning Roster.
August Lightning Roster
This competition will run for four weeks, commencing on the week of the 3rd of August and concluding the week of the 24th of August. We are offering three events:
1) Combined open doubles – played out on Monday and Tuesday evenings
2) Ladies only doubles – played out on Wednesday evenings (subject to numbers)
3) Combined open singles – played out on Thursday evenings
Combined events are open to both male and female players – everyone will be ranked according to their skill level.
Each event costs $40 upfront and players are welcome to enter multiple events.
Players of a division 1/2 standard are likely to play Tuesday evenings, while players of a division 3/4 are likely to play on Monday evenings. For players who are borderline division 2/3, you may need to be able to play on alternating nights each week due to the promotion or relegation from each side of the competition, this will only impact those moving up or down from the top and bottom pools each week (maximum of two people each week).
In addition to the $40 entry fee, players will also be responsible for supplying shuttles each week. Traditionally, each player generally needs to supply 1 or 2 shuttles each week (the exact amount will be determined by your pool at the start of each night). Shuttles are available to purchase from the canteen, via cashless payments only.
Entries for this competition close on Thursday the 30th of July.
Registrations have now closed!
