Rye Lawn Tennis Club 93rd Annual Invitation Tournament 2021

(held under Rule 42 of the LTA and open to Members and Temporary Members only)

Friday 30th July to Monday 2nd August


Please note that entry to the tournament is based on the assumption that current COVID restrictions will have been withdrawn by the time it is scheduled to take place. If this proves not to be the case, the format of the tournament and associated facilities may have to be changed or, in the worst case scenario, the tournament may have to be cancelled. If the latter, or if restricting numbers means we have to cancel some events, then full refunds will be offered. Unfortunately, the Club cannot accept liability for any additional costs incurred as a result of cancellation.
