How to get on a team
We have 3 men's teams and 5 ladies' teams (6 players per team) playing in the North-East Cheshire Lawn Tennis League during the summer. If you are interested in playing in the teams please come along to a practice (details below) and see what it's like.
Even if you do not wish to commit to playing team tennis regularly, we always like to know who we can call upon. We are always looking for new team players at any level, so why not give it a try. If you want further information, please give the respective captains a call.
