County Tennis for Seniors

Across Wales Seniors i.e. those over 35 are involved in county competition. The over 35’s
mens and ladies from both north and south Wales compete, over a weekend in the summer,
for the LTA county cup. Four years ago, under the captaincy of Jo Thomas, the south wales
ladies 35 team were overall winners.


Elsewhere, seniors compete in a variety of different age groups from over 40 to over 70.
Some notable successes in recent years have been the men's over 50 team and the ladies
over 40 team. Whilst the pandemic put county aspirations on hold last year a modified
county competition is being organised for 2021. It will minimise travelling and in most cases
the need for overnight stay whilst ensuring seniors are able to play a high competitive
standard. The season has been extended into late autumn giving teams a greater degree of
flexibility.


Updates on the performance of the county teams will be posted here. If you would be interested in representing Wales in your age group, please email Mark Lewis on mark.lewis@tenniswales.org.uk
