Our 2017 Tournament was held on Saturday 22nd April at Withdean Sports Complex,

The Tournament had a different format to the previous years where the ESAB cup had been contested between teams from Sound Tennis Sussex and Metro Blind Sport

The Format was doubles matches and players came from Metro, Portsmouth, Cambridge and Eastbourne as well as from Brighton and Hove

In the B1 competition we had 6 players, 3 men and 3 women, each of the players played 6 matches in total with games being first to 4 followed by a tie break

Each player played 2 matches alongside the 3 players of the opposite gender
