Inter Livery Tennis
27 August 2021
The Worshipful Company of Feltmakers’ Inter Livery Tennis Competition is held each year in September. In 2021, the venue is the Hurlingham Club, due to renovation works at our normal venue, Queens Club.
The Competition is open to all Livery Companies and each Company may enter one or two teams of mixed doubles of which at least one member in each pair will be a member of the Livery. In all there is a maximum of forty-eight players permitted.
The day commences with registration and morning coffee at 11.00am with play commencing promptly at 12.00pm. Initially the teams are split into six groups and each team plays against the other teams in their group until 3.00pm. The winners of each group then enter a knock out competition to play for the Feltmakers’ Trophy and other prizes. The losers in each group enter a knock out Plate competition for the Feltmakers’ Plate Cup. The finals of each competition are held at 5.15pm. There is a running buffet provided for lunch whilst there are breaks during play.
There is a cash bar before Dinner commencing at 7.30pm which is held in the Terrace Room at the Hurlingham. The Dinner is a three-course meal with half a bottle of wine included per person. Masters, liverymen and friends are encouraged to join their teams at the Dinner. After Dinner the Master of the Feltmakers’ Company presents the prizes to the winners and the runners-up. The evening normally ends shortly after 9.30pm
The dress code for players on court is predominantly white clothing and for the Dinner, jacket and ties are required with appropriate dress for the ladies. The day is intended as an enjoyable day for Liverymen and their friends/supporters where they can meet at a sporting occasion.
