2nd and 3rd Nov U15/U19 Hall Update

Inverness Royal Academy have informed us that we only have one hall rather than 2 halls due to roof leak and damaged floor - they are in progress of getting this fixed but will not be in time for our tournament.

To ensure the events go ahead we are currently securing /secured second hall (another 4 courts) for girls singles and girls doubles events - below is current status:

Saturday 2nd Nov - U15 age Group
BS / BD / XD will be in Inverness Royal Academy as planned and GS / GD will be in Dingwall Leisure Centre 11am-6pm. Mixed will be played first in IRA.
Sunday 3rd Nov - U19 Age Group
BS / BD / XD will be in Inverness Royal Academy as planned and GS / GD will be in Charleston Academy 9am-2pm then back to IRA for those in mixed.

HBG are sincerely apologetic since this will mean splitting families who have boy/girl but it does mean we can actually run the event.
