|Chairman's 2020 Season - July Update|
As you are aware in previous LTA communications competitive play has been cancelled up to the 26th July which has led the NECLTL to suspend the leagues and competitions pending further announcements. The most recent announcement this week by the LTA is introducing a return to competitive play for singles and doubles , including small groups as long as Covid-19 guidelines are followed. We very much welcome this news .
NECLTL have considered the new ruling however due to the limited time we have left to play matches ( we have effectively lost 4 and a half months play ) , upcoming holidays, even if we extended the season we believe we would struggle to have more than a handful of matches played. We therefor have no alternative other than to cancel all league matches for the 2020 season. This will include all NECLTL league matches and the Acton Cup.
We hope you enjoy your Summer tennis and look forward to seeing you in 2021 with a full agenda of NECLTL league and competition tennis.
Until then please stay safe and if we can be of any assistance please don't hesitate to contact us.
Yours sincerely on behalf of NECLTL

|Coronavirus & the League 2020 Season|
Welcome to the website for the North-East Cheshire Lawn Tennis League. Founded in 1953, the League is located in and around Stockport (south of Manchester), most clubs being situated within an eight mile radius of Bramhall (Stockport). There are forty-two clubs involved, having teams in twenty-one divisions i.e. nine Ladies' divisions and twelve Men's divisions.
Matches are played from the beginning of April through to the end of July, allowing a further fortnight's grace to cover any postponements for bad weather.
Mid-week matches commence at 7:0 p.m. for the default 12 set format or 6:30 p.m. for the 18 set format.
The former are played to completion and the latter to completion or timed finish, no later than 10 p.m.. Where clubs agree, week-end matches are also played.
