Tennis teams return to league action

-

Competitiv­e tennis returns to the area this month with the commenceme­nt of the Driffield and District Lawn Tennis League after being suspended for 2020 due to Covid.

New this year is the use of the LTA’s official Tournament Software to record the results of the matches and to keep the LTA informed as to the health and progress of this important regional league.

The five Mixed divisions start on Tuesday evening, May 18.

The five Ladies divisions kick off on Wednesday May 19 followed by the six Men’s divisions on Thursday May 20.

There are eight teams in most of the divisions although some have seven and one or two divisions are down to six.

This normally means that each team plays 14 matches, seven at home and seven away.

So with the action starting in the middle of May the league is expected to finish in August although the weather is always a determinin­g factor.

Hackness and Scarboroug­h A are the reigning Men’s division one champions from 2019, Long Riston A the reigning Ladies champions and Beverley and East Riding are the defending Mixed champions
