We are looking for players for a 4-day clay court tournament to be played at the Monte Carlo Country Club (where the Monte Carlo Open is played) 4-8th Sept 2019. The format is men's doubles with about 14 to 18 teams participating, mostly from the EU with a few from the rest of the world. Each team is made up of 3 pairs. We will be taking an extra player or 2 as there is quite a lot of tennis, around 9 hours over 2.5 days, ample socialising and it will be hot! The age range is typically early 30s to 60s but we understand that the older players have nearly always come out on top. The cost is €980 per player. This covers the hire of the club, court staff, balls, tournament kit etc, lunch on the terrace all 3 days (including wine), and a cocktail/finger food reception the evening before play where we do the draw and a closing party with dinner and a band at the Yacht Club where the trophy is awarded. We get a 50% discount on the rooms at the Monte Carlo Bay which is 3 minutes walk away. The rate is €270 per night including breakfast.
Our initial thoughts are it is expensive but you will be experiencing world class facilities and each player will receive a subsidy (yet to be determined) from our club to these costs.
With the timescale of this match we will need your application to participate by the end of May 2019, because we will need to reserve the hotel, where we have a block booking.
