Teams At TWLTC

TWLTC enters many teams into various different leagues. As a result, we cater on a competitive level for highly experienced players to those who play at a more intermediate level. If you want to play competitive tennis at TWLTC, there will almost certainly be something for you.

Twice a year we have an online team sign-up page for each set of teams that we enter into the various leagues. We also usually run an intro evening where you can turn up to hit competitively with other members if you are interested in playing for a team but do not know where you might fit in.

We host a team practice evening every Tuesday from 8-9.30pm. You sign up for this on our Events Page, provided that you have put your name down as a full player or reserve. We will then place you in two doubles matches lasting 45 minutes each.

There are four players in each team playing in two different pairings. Matches take place throughout the year and generally each team will play 4-5 matches in the Kent League and 8 matches in the Maidstone League. Each match is expected to last around 3-3.5 hours in total (excluding travel to away matches).  Details of the various leagues are set out below. The precise numbers of teams entered varies from year to year:

Kent League

WEEKEND: we usually enter around five Men’s Doubles, six Ladies’ Doubles and six Mixed Doubles teams into this league. These are weekend fixtures played at TWLTC and away clubs within Kent.

MID-WEEK: Ladies’/Men’s Midweek Doubles. These are mid-week daytime fixtures played at TWLTC and away clubs within Kent.
