Yorkshire Doubles League

Yorkshire Doubles League


We were all excited to hear the Government’s announcement last month on their plan to ease lockdown, as this has now paved the way for tennis clubs to re-open at the end of the month, allowing members to participate in social and competitive tennis.

If we do have enough interest from clubs, we would expect matches to take place over a four to five month period between 15th May – 30th September 2021.

Entries will remain at a cost of £15 per team and the deadline for entry will be 10th April 2021. Numbers permitting, once we have the full list of entries, I will organise a draw for the home and away matches and inform the relevant clubs, so that fixtures can be decided between the team captains either via email or phone. Fixtures would need to be finalised by 30th April 2021. As in the past, all results are uploaded online, allowing teams to keep up to date with the league tables on a regular basis!

In respect of numbers of teams in each division, the ladies could remain at 8 per division, but there will only be 5 teams per division for the men’s league; this decision was agreed and finalised by the Yorkshire Tennis Competitions Committee for the 2020 season.
As many of you will know, the Yorkshire Doubles League offers your members an opportunity to enjoy competitive tennis and meet team players from a variety of clubs throughout the region.

As a committee, we are here to facilitate the Yorkshire Doubles League, but would very much like your thoughts and ideas as to how to proceed in 2021. We do appreciate that some clubs will be keen to start up competitive tennis, but others may be reluctant and prefer to wait and see.
