This Cup was donated in 1984 by Eileen Briggs, former Life Member and Vice President, in memory of her husband, Gilbert, former Life President.
A sad event in November 1982 was the death of Gilbert Briggs. With his wife, Eileen, Gilbert had joined the Club at its re-start in 1948. Committeemember, Secretary, Treasurer, and succeeding Edgar Pilgrim as President and then Life President in 1981, he made an enormous contribution to Knowle Lawn Tennis Club. In his later years he played in the Mid Week section, was a great supporter of all the Club’s activities, and was much missed.
Quick tournament rules are simple(ish) – you play 8 games per match, minimum of 3 matches. You play 4 with your partner and then swap partners and play 4 against them. You keep a tally of the games you have won. The top 4 players then go into the final.
There is a bring and share tea afterwards in the clubhouse.
