COMPETITIVE TENNIS

We take part in competitive tennis, not only with tournaments at the club, but also in competitive leagues.

In the Cleveland League we have a ladies' team, a men's A team, a men's B team and a mixed team. We also take part in a veteran's league and in a county mixed winter league. If you would like further information please contact us. 

To take part in league tennis you must attend relevant team practice sessions, be selected by the team captain and pay match fees.

LEAGUE PLATFORM (LP)

From 2022 there will be changes to the way the Cleveland League is organised. They are moving to the LTA's league planner platform where they can record and display league results and tables. This allows players to easily find results and tables. It allows team captains to easily update results online, with no need to submit match cards. It also means there is less work for league volunteers. 

As a result of this players MUST sign up for LTA Advantage membership AND register for a WTN number. It is completely free but if you do not do this you will NOT be able to play league matches. A WTN number is like a golf handicap. Everyone gets a ranking between 1 (highest) and 40 (lowest) based on the information you enter. League results go towards this ranking. Please view the following guide on how to do this on the lta.org.uk website https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1jbPD68-Cc 

The system will impact a number of things, including the way captains log results, and more information will be published in time.
