National Competitions are held throughout the year and are open to PE members of all playing abilities and any nationality. A small number of competitions are also open to non-members and these are identified as “PE Open” on the National Calendar.
National Competitions are stand-alone events and each one has Gold, Silver and Bronze leagues (and Pewter, where numbers permit). Cash prizes are awarded in each league, so there is an opportunity to win at all levels, it is not limited to ‘elite’ players.
Competitions are held in various formats, which typically includes
- Men’s and Women’s Singles, Doubles & Triples
- Mixed Doubles, Triples & Melee
- Veterans Competitions (over 55 years) – Doubles, Triples and Mixed Doubles
Youth competitions for Junior members are managed separately by the PE National Youth Academy.
