Giraffe Club Cup & Blues Reunion, 1 – 3 February 2019

The Giraffe Club Cup is an exciting new annual CURTC tournament.

The idea is to invite previous Blues, Cambridge alumni and other Giraffe Club members to compete in a doubles tournament as part of the build up to the Varsity match (1-2 March 2019 at Lords).

The Giraffe Club was relaunched in 2016 to encourage students to play Real Tennis at Cambridge University and to promote playing excellence, both without regard to financial constraints of the student.

The doubles tournament will take place from Friday 1 February (for those who can manage) through to Sunday 3 and will be played off handicap. There will be a league stage and a later knock out stage.

Social events will include a buffet lunch on Saturday, a drinks party at CURTC on Saturday during an exhibition match featuring Ed Kay (UK Amateur Singles Champion 2018), followed by a black tie dinner at Jesus College.

The cost of the tournament is £125 including dinner. Annual Giraffe Club membership is £40, or £25 if already a CURTC member.

We do hope you will enter the tournament with your chosen playing partner (we will find a partner if necessary) and you will encourage friends from your era to attend. Please complete the following LINK to secure your place .
