Event description
The British Social Challenge is a social tennis event which brings students from across Britain together to take part in this unique event!

About this Event

The British Social challenge is back in Aberdeen on the 6th,7th and 8th of March 2020!

• Feedback from last year showed that our inaugural BSC was a huge success, however we’ve made a few changes that we think will make this year one not to miss!

• Northumbria won last years event in a big couple of days of tennis! Although we have the competitive aspect throughout the weekend the main goal of the weekend is for everyone to have fun and meet new people that they would never have met without this event.

• This event is will see 12 teams from a range of universities across Britain compete to win the 3rd British Social Challenge. Players should be at least intermediate standard with players ratings needing to be between 6.1 and 10.2 in order to enter. (Please contact Kieran if you have any queries about this).

• Tickets will cost £25 per person (not including Eventbrite charge) and will include everything on the itinerary (excluding accommodation).

• Teams will be of 4 players this year and must be mixed gender if possible, there is only space for 12 teams so be sure to get your entry in early!

• Each University can enter a maximum of 2 teams. Once you have purchased your ticket please email Kieran with your name and the University that you will be playing for (please contact Kieran about any queries).

Accommodation is available at our student halls for £20 a night per person (contact Kieran for more details).

• A professional photographer will be on hand throughout the weekend too!

The itinerary for the weekend is below:

Friday night:

• Pub quiz at Revolution on Belmont Street in Aberdeen which will start at approximately 19:30 (not essential to attend but its a fun way to start the weekend off).

• Points will be up for grabs for each university adding to your overall team score - so not to be missed out on!

• Great chance to meet players from other universities before the tennis starts on the Saturday.

• Please don't worry if you can't make the Friday as teams can also arrive on the Saturday as play won't start until 2pm. Please let Kieran know which day you will be arriving so we know what numbers we have for the quiz

Saturday:

• Play will start at 14.00 so everyone should arrive by 13.45 at the latest. Play will run until 6pm.

• For the first hour we are bringing back the fun competition which involves all players being mixed with others from different universities so that everyone gets to know each other before the event gets properly started

The next part of the day will be the start of the competition which will run as follows:

• Davis Cup style ties where each group match will include timed doubles matches and depending on time there may be singles matches included too. Each player will play at least one rubber in each match.

• There will be 3 groups of 4 and we will make sure that each team get at least 3 matches throughout the afternoon.

• All group matches will be played on the Saturday and this will decide what draw you will be in on the Sunday. The venue for all matches will be at Aberdeen Tennis Centre which is an indoor facility!

• Your ticket also includes food at Revolution from 8pm. You will be given plenty of time after the tennis to go back to your accommodation to freshen up and get ready for 8pm

• The night out will start at our sponsor Revolution straight after the meal where we have discount cards available for everyone. We will then head to our sponsor Nightclub called Atik where we have free entry!

Sunday:

• Play will start at 12.00 and will finish at 16:30 at the latest (including presentation).

• The format will change slightly as each match will be two 15 minute doubles matches on this occasion.

• There will be the main Competition Draw for the top 2 finishers in each group from the Saturday and a Plate Draw for the bottom 2 teams.

• The draw will be made on the Saturday night and will be seeded depending on who finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in each group.

• Each team will still get 3 matches again no matter if they win or lose.

• There will be prizes for the overall winners (including quiz scores) and for the winners of both the Sunday Competition and Plate draws.

The format may change slightly but if this is the case you will be informed
