Qualifier 5 June – FIPJP Singles, Doubles & Mixed Doubles


The FIPJP are holding the first combined Singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles World Championship for men and women in Gent, Belgium on April 13-16th 2017.

On Sunday 5 June 2016 the SPA will hold a one day qualifying competition for this. Teams of 2 men and 2 women are requested to register in advance for the competition. The venue will be confirmed after registration has closed. The format will depend on the number of entries, but it is planned that it will include singles for men and women, doubles for 2 men and 2 women and mixed doubles games. The winning team of 4 will be those who accumulate most wins over the day. Teams are required to nominate their male and female singles players. The other 2 members of the team will form the mixed double. The 2 men and 2 women will also play together in ‘single sex’ doubles matches. It is anticipated that the event will be a full day (9.30 to around 6pm).

Teams who play in the qualifier must be available to represent the SPA on the dates given above. The SPA cannot offer any financial assistance for this.

To register please fill in all details in all of the sections in the form (link to this is below). Only one player from each team should submit an entry please. If you need to make changes to your entry after it is submitted or have any difficulty please email colinstewart1976@gmail.com.

The closing date for registration is Friday 29 April 2016.

Online Registration Form

North v South arrangements


Players who wish to play in the North v South on 3rd April should note the following:

  • Registration is 10 am for 10.30 start.
  • Coffee and croissants will be available at registration.
  • Please bring your own lunch (the cafe at Bells is likely to be very busy – see below).
  • Due to a major gymnastics event being held at Bells Sports Centre on the same day parking is likely to be scarce in the public car park and Perth PC’s private car park is not available that day either.  Players are advised to allow extra time as you might need to find street parking elsewhere.
  • We will play 2 rounds before lunch and 2 or 3 in the afternoon, depending on the weather etc.

We look forward to seeing you at our  season opener.

2016 Calendar


The 2016 Calendar is now available to view in the events section.

There are two dates reserved for potential qualifiers – 20 March (for the EuroCup) and 5 June (may be a qualifier for the 2017 World Singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles pending a final decision by the SPA).  Club secretaries/contacts have been sent details of the rules regarding entry of the EuroCup.  If any club is interested in competing please email Lynn Jenkins by 19th February.

The SPA will confirm whether the reserved dates are required or not following our meeting on 28th February.

2016 Calendar Update


We’ve had a few enquiries about the 2016 Calendar.  We have added the dates of competitions we know about so far (watch out that for some both date and venue are TBC – e.g. Men’s World Championships). The National Executive Committee are meeting on Sunday 24th January and will issue dates for our 2016 competitions shortly after that.

Thank you for your patience.
