Welcome to the North East Cheshire Lawn Tennis League. Situated in and around the North East Cheshire and the South Manchester region, 42 Clubs, with a combined 234 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. We have a full tennis agenda for the 2023 season. 1183 league doubles matches are planned commencing 1st April, running through until the end of July. In addition to league tennis, we have the Acton Cup, an interclub knockout competition for mixed, ladies and men’s doubles and individual ladies and men’s, culminating in the finals to be held 10th September. Also, the Rose Bowl, a one-day interclub competition which this year will be hosted by West Heaton on the 17th June. As promised our new website is now live and full of useful information regarding summer league tennis, competitions, news, fixtures, key dates, rules, results, club details and much more. A big thankyou to John Collins and Val Bowen our League Match Secretaries who have gone the extra mile in ensuring the new web site is up and running. We hope you like it.

If you are an existing or new club secretary/captain, please make sure you are familiar with the updated rules 2023 which may be found using the links on the site.

Finally, a big thankyou to Slazenger our ball sponsor for their ongoing support of the league and competitions. Please make sure the world class Slazenger Wimbledon Ball is used in all league and competitions matches.

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