National Singles Championship 2016
Qualifying events in various locations, 12 & 16th November. Finals (last 16) at St Paul’s School, Barnes, December 3rd/4th
Entry is now open to this year’s National Singles Championship. And, as you can see from the attached document, qualifying events will be taking place around the country as usual; the venues this year are Edinburgh, Durham, Bristol, Cambridge and London.
Last year saw a record entry of 59 players — we look forward to beating it this year!
The finals are made up of 16 players. The top 4 ranked players qualify automatically with the other 12 places split between the 5 regions. The number of qualifiers from a region will depend on the size and strength of the entry for each region and varies from year to year.
The seeding for the finals will be based primarily on rankings, but adjusted to take account of the results in the qualifying events. Credit will be given for winning or finishing as runner-up in a region, and for wins against higher ranked players. The draw will attempt to avoid repeats of matches already played between players from the same region. The seedings will be decided by a committee appointed by the RFA.
