2018 New SeasonPublished on Tuesday 1st May 2018
The 2018 season started on a cool but sunny Sunday 29 April evening at Wetherby, as Wetherby B took on Harrogate Racquets C in Division 5.
This season clubs have been asked to enter the match results online, so please check the results, and let the home team know any issues. There will be teething problems, but neat handwriting on scorecards is very useful!
Details of entry to the annual tournament are under the Tournament tab.
2018 Divisional FormatPublished on Saturday 10th February 2018
The 2018 fixture list is available and has been emailed to clubs. It is on the website under Fixtures on the Information tab and has been entered into league planner for results to be loaded.
2018 AGM and TournamentPublished on Tuesday 31st October 2017

Subscriptions are due if not already paid.
- Details of team captains to secretary by 31 March
- Annual Tournament 10-16 June at Harrogate Racquets

League Rules vote
The vote was 15 yes 10 no 1 abstain. So the 2017 Match Rules will be retained and used for 2018.
Clubs may like to propose changes to the scoring system for 2019, ie use the scoring system similar or the same as York Mens League. Any such proposals and ideas need to be submitted to the committee so it can be circulated around clubs for views. Please do this by end May.
The League Planner software that is used to record results will be set up to allow captains to enter the results, but scorecards still need to be emailed to the league secretary.
Sadly, Birstwith withdrew from the HDTL. So only one team was relegated from Div 4 and 5. The div list for 2018 will be on the website
The Fixtures list and it will be done in due course (not an easy or straightforward task) and circulated to club contacts and captains once done
New tournaments/leagues supported by HDTL
If you would like to help with a junior/ladies/vets/other event or league then please let the committee know. The HDTL does have funds to support this.

Many thanks to West Tanfield Club for organising the event, and in particular to Claire Elsworth. Over 100 people atteneded, a recent record turnout, and all had a lovely evening in the Dales.
The awards were announced by HDTL Chairman Paul Evision, and awarded by HDTL President Ian Hargreaves.
