THE SOUTH Warwickshire junior summer tennis competition, run by the Wildmoor Spa Tennis League, got underway this month.

This year the league consists of 16 teams in four pools and features players 12-years-old and under as of March 1.

The teams take it in turn to host a pool every month over the summer between March and June. Pools will be played on a round-robin basis with one pair of juniors from each club, one set each match (tie break normally at 6-6), allowing three sets/matches per team per pool night.

On Wednesday, July 1 there will be a play-off pool night at Littletons Tennis Club between the winning teams from each of the four pools, all of which will receive pool winners medals.

The top two teams from these play-offs will then go on to play in a full cup final to be held at Henley-in-Arden Tennis Club, alongside the men’s Inter-League Charity Cup final, on Sunday, September 6.

The cups and annual league trophy presentations will be made immediately following this event.

The pools are as follows: Pool A – Alcester, Henley-in-Arden A and B teams, HDA Redditch B; Pool B – Chipping Campden A and B teams, Evesham, Pershore; Pool C – Bidford-on-Avon, Ilmington, Littletons, Stratford; Pool D – HDA Redditch A, C, D and E teams.
