About the NECLTL

Welcome to the North East Cheshire Lawn Tennis League. Situated in and around the North East Cheshire and the South Manchester region, 43 Clubs, with a combined 230+ ladies and men’s doubles teams, play competitive tennis during the summer months. If you live in the region there will be a club near you.

The NECLTL have a full schedule planned for the 2022 season, commencing 1st April and running through until the end of July. In addition to league tennis there are inter club cup competitions, including the Acton Cup and Plate and Rose Bowl.

If you are an existing or new club secretary/captain please make sure you are familiar with the rules which may be found using the link “Rules” on this site. Also please check that all your players on your Club List have been added to the relevant team(s) and remind your captains that they must ensure that all players are listed on their TEAM list before playing in a match. Please refer to Rules 19.1.3 and 19.1.4 which may be found on this site. To add ‘new to the league’ players please ensure they have your Club listed as a venue on their personal LTA account and send their name, BTM number and the team they will play for, to the respective NECLTL Match Secretary before they play in any matches.

With the move towards a digital format we have found the website is being used more and more for reference and as an information guide. The time has now come for the Handbook, which we have published (and more recently provided in PDF format) for over 50 years to be discontinued. Information regarding clubs, locations, contacts, captains, news, cup competitions, results, rules and privacy policy may now all be found on this website.

On behalf of NECLTL, we hope you have a great season.
