Wetherby Tennis Club run their own Winter League for clubs in the area that may not have floodlights and who are keen to keep their competitive tennis going even during the depths of winter.
Mike Triffitt has taken over the running from Ian Teasdale who ran this very successful league for 6 years and we start our 8th term this winter . Collingham and Boston Spa came on board last season and continue and Knaresborough, after seeing all their three Summer league teams promoted in the Harrogate Mixed, join Wetherby in having two entries which gives us a nine team set up thanks.
