A NEAR-RECORD entry of 47 teams is expected for the 2017 South Warwickshire & District Summer Tennis League.
The league, which holds its AGM on Tuesday, February 21, at Bidford Bowling Club, has announced a renewed three-year deal with Anthony Bird of the Wildmoor Spa & Health Club, based in Stratford-upon-Avon.
It will be the Wildmoor Spa Tennis League for its fourth year of sponsorship and will again feature six divisions from the Premier Division to Division Five.
The league will be running a Junior League for its 14th season. Beginning in March, a month earlier than the senior league, it will have 16 teams split into four pools.
The Wildmoor Spa League will also donate £100 to the charity of choice of the team that wins the Charity Cup final played between the winners of the summer and winter league.
The Charity Cup final, organised by league secretary Corin Bishop, will be played on Sunday, September 3 at the Wildmoor Spa & Health Club courts, Alcester Road, Stratford-upon-Avon, alongside the Summer League annual presentations.
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 Wildmoor Spa.
The ball sponsors for the Charity Cup, Junior Cup final and junior semi-final play-offs are once again Inspire2Coach, based at Warwick University.
All clubs wishing to enter the league in 2017 are required to send a representative to next week’s AGM.
