At Stockton Heath Lawn Tennis Club we play in a number of competitive tennis leagues throughout the year.
The Warrington and District Lawn Tennis Association
This league has 18 member clubs from the region and runs Mens and Ladies leagues throughout April to July and a Mixed league until the end of August.
This year we have 5 mens teams, 4 ladies teams and 6 mixed teams entered.
Each team is comprised of 3 pairs playing a total of 12 sets (a set can be halved at 6-6).
The J. L. Ardern Knockout Cup
This event is a Handicap Knockout competition. Each Club enters one or two teams and registers players for cup.
A handicap is given to both teams based on the players registered from each team and the previous seasons results in the Warrington League.
The format is slightly different in that each fixture comprises Mens Doubles, Ladies Doubles and Mixed Doubles matches.
Each match is 3 sets, with every set being played. A set is won when a pair reaches 6, there is no tie-break.
