FTY Lab are very excited to announce the very first FTY Tennis Tournament on our two FTY Tennis courts! FREE OF CHARGE for all of our FTY Members and £5-per-player for non-members. The tournament follows a similar style of major football competitions, featuring a group stage leading to a knockout stage, with the winners taking home trophies and prizes.
FTY Tennis is our brand new sport, where players battle it out at a hybrid version of football and tennis. Use ball control, heading & volleying to dominate the opposition and be crowned king or queen of the court.
If you are interested, use the registration form below and fill in the required information. Players must be 15 or above to enter.
Groups of 4 teams who will play each team once. 2 points for a win and 0 points for a loss, if points are tied GD will be used to determine who progresses. The top 2 teams will progress to the quarter final group stage, where again the top 2 will then progress to a classic semi-final and final.
Players can still register for a space with the tournament just started on Monday July 12th. Groups stages will take place on Monday July 12th or Monday July 19th, depending on what group you are placed in, so interested parties must sign up by the 19th. Knockouts will take place on subsequent Mondays.

Non-Members = £5.00, per player & per round (semi final and final = 1 round)
