Wivenhoe tennis club



Summer League

The club typically enters teams in the Aegon League, Colchester and District Summer League, and Friendly League. The matches generally take place on weekday summer evenings, usually starting at 6.30pm. The last matches are in August because many clubs do not have floodlights and matches must therefore be completed in daylight. The home team provides a tea after the matches. A small match fee for home matches is paid to cover balls and lights when necessary.

See the fixture list for when matches are scheduled.

Winter League

The club runs a local Winter League as we have the benefit of floodlights. There are separate leagues for men's, ladies' and mixed teams. Teams consist of four players, four men or ladies for those leagues or two men and two ladies for the mixed one. Matches consist of four sets.

In men's matches, two sets are played against each of the other two pairs. In mixed matches, the men play the men (two sets), the ladies play the ladies (two sets), and each mixed pair plays its opposing pairs. A small match fee is collected on the match nights, Mondays and Wednesdays, to cover balls and floodlights. The league runs from October through to March.

Since 2011, the club has run a singles league, with results counting towards LTA ratings. Contact the club coach for further details.
