Are you a tennis player in Wales over the age of 35? Then you could represent North or South Wales in one of the biggest team competitions of the year – the County Cup.
Played over one weekend in the summer, the County Cup has Seniors men’s and women’s competitions for over 35s, 40s, 45s, 50s, 55s, 60s, 65s and 70s.
Updates on the performance of the 2022 county teams will be posted here.

Every year players from across Wales come together to play for the title of Welsh champion.
One of the highlights in our tennis calendar, the National Championships are open to everyone – from newbies to experienced pros.
This is an international event with players representing their respective countries, featuring England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Team Selection 2022
We are delighted to announce that 2022 will see not one, but two Senior Home Nation events across the UK over the May Bank Holiday Weekend.
Due to being unable to hold the event last year, this year will see Wrexham hosting the 35, 45 and 50 events and Bolton hosting the 55, 60 and 65 age groups.
Over the past couple of months, the process of gaining player availability and selecting teams in each age group has been conducted and finalised with teams selected and players notified.
The selection of teams was of course such a difficult process, due to the number and standard of players that were available, however we can now announce that the following individuals have been selected to represent their age group:
Ladies 35 Team: Claire Powell (Captain) / Kirsty Leeke / Lucy Scott / Ellie Lewis
Men’s 35 Team: Chris Lewis (C) / Simon Morris / Craig Evans / Chris Evans
