Current League Results and Information

LTA National Tennis League 

Following the recent LTA re-brand we are delighted to announce that we now have a new name for this Competition. The Team Tennis event has now been renamed the LTA National League.

LTA National League Summer

Clearly last year was very challenging for everyone, and after the cancellation of the 2020 Summer competition we are hopeful and looking forward to bringing team competition back to venues and players this summer.

National League Summer runs from April to July in a 15 week league season and provides a local, fun and exciting tennis experience for players of all ages from 8&U to Seniors. The competition now includes the Seniors age groups as well, so please visit www.lta.org.uk/national-league-summer for more information on this.

Essex Tennis Winter Knock Out Cup Competitions

Play Dates:  October – March

Contact:  George Sabiniak at e mail: g.sabiniak3lw@btinternet.com

 

Essex Tennis Inter club Summer Competition

These competitions are open to Advantage Member Clubs (free entry) and those proprietary clubs directly affiliated to the LTA (which will pay an additional fee) to be determined by the Competitions Committee. The winning club of each division shall be entitled to hold the cup provided by Essex Tennis until the commencement of the competitions the following season.

Unfortunately the adverse impact of the Covid- 19 Pandemic has again resulted in a greater number of 2nd Round walkovers than usual. Hopefully, the proposed further easing of restrictions on 21st June will encourage full participation in the Semi-Finals. See the current regulations and current Summer Cup Draw Sheets below
