Social Doubles

 

OVERVIEW

Internal competitions are our club's intra-competition, perfect for members who would like to play against others in a friendly and social setting. Social Doubles is a competition that runs every year at MUTC. The competition aligns with the university semesters and is played in a team format. Semester 1 and 2 are separate competitions that both last around 8-10 weeks, in a mixed doubles round-robin format, with each team playing every week. All players who enter this competition are graded and placed in appropriate levels in an intermediate or advanced section. Players are put into teams of 5-6 members and compete against other teams in a round-robin format. Each team has a captain and a rotating roster where 6 sets are played per round. Whilst this is a competition, the objective is to keep a fun and engaging environment with great sportsmanship amongst all players and to make friends with fellow club members.
