Stratford Editorial 18th Feb, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A NEW record entry of 47 teams is expected at the AGM of the South Warwickshire & District Summer Tennis League, known as the Wildmoor Spa Tennis League.

The league’s AGM will be held on Tuesday, February 24 from 7.30pm at Bidford Bowling Club, Salford Road, Bidford.

With the Premier League and Divisions One to Five, the league remains at six divisions.

This men’s doubles summer tennis league covers the South Warwickshire and district areas of the Midlands including parts of Worcestershire and Gloucestershire and also stages an inter-league Charity Cup Final between the winners of this league and the Winter League.

The league also celebrates its 12th season running a Junior League, which begins a month earlier in March and will consist of 16 teams divided into four pools.

The Summer League will donate a £100 main prize to the charity of choice of the team that wins the Charity Cup Final, which will celebrate its 14th anniversary and be held on Sunday, September 6 at Henley-in-Arden Tennis Club, alongside the club’s Championship Finals.

Summer League president Tony King of Alcester has once again promised financial backing for the Charity Cup Final and Junior Cup Final, which will be held alongside each other at Henley.

The ball sponsors for the Charity Cup, Junior Cup Final and Junior Semi-Final Play-Offs are once again Inspire2Coach.

All clubs wishing to enter the league in 2015 are required under the rules to send a representative to the meeting. Free refreshments will be supplied following the event.
