National League aims to provide players of all ages (8&U- Adult) with regular league matches, against similar standard players in a competitive team environment. Teams compete on a county basis in leagues which are appropriate to their player standard. Stronger teams in certain age groups (12U-Open) have an opportunity to compete outside their county in regional leagues. Matches consist of singles and doubles rubbers.
National league season will run from April-June. This period helps places to play focus on singles based team competition and allows teams and players to build momentum during the season.
In the 8&U-18&U age groups teams are placed in divisions based on the standard of players in the team for that year. This helps to provide appropriate matches for the team players year on year. The adult age group is a promotion and relegation structure providing a clear and competitive pathway of teams.
CLTC endeavors to enter teams into all age groups and enters multiple teams when there are enough players to support more teams. The club’s Head Coach Sue Rich is in overall charge of National League Tennis at CLTC and there are also volunteer captains for each team who do a great job getting the team organised.
