The Millennium Cup Organising Committee has reluctantly decided to postpone the 2020 Competition that was due to start on 5 April because of the threat of Coronavirus / COVID-19.
All five participant clubs are following current government guidelines to help halt the spread of the outbreak, while the LTA and Tennis Surrey have suspended tennis activity, including league and other matches.
Since Millennium Cup ties bring together members from different clubs in large numbers in a social tennis environment, the committee believes it had no other choice than to postpone the competition, at least for the time being.
It is hoped that it will become possible to hold this later in the year once the coronavirus situation improves.
The Millennium Cup’s 20th edition
This local community team competition involves the five tennis clubs of Streatham and you can find out everything about it on this website.
It helps to introduce players who may not ordinarily play competition to match play conditions on a level playing-field that excludes the participation of more experienced club players competing at Tennis Surrey League level.
It is eagerly and enthusiastically contested and has helped many players take the plunge into match play who have gone on to represent their clubs in the Surrey Leagues.
The competition continues to be a great grass roots development event for all.
It is also great fun because it is friendly and everyone is sociable, both on and off the court!
