Seniors Tennis team competitions
There are opportunities for Seniors players of all ages to take part in team competitions of all standards at venue, county and national levels.
Below you can find out more about what these are and how to get involved.
Nearly every LTA registered tennis venue takes part in local team competitions. This is normally via county and district leagues. Leagues are mostly for open age groups but as venues will normally enter several teams, a variety of playing standards are catered for. Many leagues will also run age group competitions.
