Harrogate & District Tennis League

This is the official HDTL web site, and its prime function is to keep clubs and their players informed about news and events. In particular, it provides a regular update of results and league tables during the season, which runs from the end of April to mid-August.

The Harrogate and District Tennis League offers competitive mixed doubles at a wide range of standards in six divisions. The lower divisions provide competition for club players of average standard, while Division 1 attracts players of a very high calibre for regular mixed doubles.

The League has operated successfully for many years and currently has 50 teams from 19 clubs.
