Team Information 2017
We are entering 3 men’s, 2 ladies and a mixed team into the Slazenger Cleveland Tennis League. The men’s A narrowly missed promotion last year but hope to do better this year and gain promotion to division 2. The B team gained promotion to division 4. Their aim is to retain this position with the added goal of promotion to division 3 a possibility. The C team were competitive in division 6 but were hampered by calls from the B team and injuries. The Ladies A team were competitive in division 2 with the B team holding its own.
All teams had a successful 2016 but we must now look forward to 2017. We know that some regular players will not be available this year. This will give an opportunity to existing members and potentially new members to play for the teams. We also believe that our junior coaching programme is developing some exciting players who will be able to compete with the established players for places.
We hope all the teams will have enjoyable tennis and they will of course be open to all club members who would like to play. Evenings for men’s home matches are Monday C team, Wednesday B team and Thursday for the A team. Ladies matches are Wednesday A team and Monday B team with the mixed matches being played on Saturdays.

Once we have names of all who are interested in playing for the teams we will be able to arrange some practice matches before deciding on the squads for the season which starts at the end of April.
We want to make sure that everyone who is interested in playing team tennis will be able to get a game so please, make yourself known.
You will also be welcome at Club Night on Tuesday and Squad on Sunday morning with full details available on the club’s web site links.
