UKBT Beach Tournament Schedule 2022

We’re looking forward to a great summer of UKBT tournaments at the beach courts in Teddington, starting next Sunday 10th April with the 1* Mixed Series.

We have something for everyone, whatever your level or age, from our Junior Series events for juniors of all levels under 14 and 18 to our 3* Classic Series events for advanced adults and juniors.

New this year is the 1* Starter Series, a single gender tournament aimed at beginner and intermediate players.

And to complete the line-up are our always popular 1* Mixed Series and 2* Richmond Series events.

Richmond Winter Beach Series starts 24th October

The summer might be over, but we’re pleased to announce that registration to our popular series of winter beach tournaments is now open.

Taking place once a month between October and March, these tournaments are aimed at all levels and are fast paced – with maximum of 8 teams on 3 courts, this means you get lots of games with minimum amount of breaks. The format is 2v2 and there are mixed and single-gender events.

There are medals to be won for each event and prizes for the overall series winners.

In the last two years the series was unfortunately cut short due to the national lockdowns, but hopefully this year we can complete the series.
