Leeds League Web-Site support

At the March AGM, it was announced that volunteers are required to administer and support the League Web-Site from 2021. Please contact the current IT Support Officer, Steve Bastow, for more information and/or to express an interest.

A role description document is available here to provide more background.

 

The Leeds Tennis League has been in existence since 1964, when it was set up by 6 local clubs to give them the opportunity to play competitive mixed doubles.

It has since expanded, and the league now comprises around 90 teams, playing mixed/medley, mens, ladies and junior team tennis. Teams are entered by participating tennis clubs from within Leeds and surrounding districts. A full list of participating clubs can be found by following the Clubs & Maps link above. Enquiries from new clubs are always welcome – please contact the Chairman or Secretary in the first instance.

In addition, there is an indoor winter medley league, which plays at Leeds Beckett University’s Carnegie Tennis Centre, a Veterans League and a thriving Round Robin Singles League open to any player in the area.

The league is run by a team of volunteers, supported by Leeds City Council, with financial support from the Lawn Tennis Association.

An agreed constitution provides a framework for running the league and Autumn and Spring AGM’s are organised each year to manage it.
