Published on Tuesday 31st October 2017

The AGM was held on Monday 5 February 2018 and the following should be noted:

Subscriptions are due if not already paid.

Diary Dates

  • Details of team captains to secretary by 31 March
  • Annual Tournament 10-16 June at Harrogate Racquets
  • Dinner & Trophy Presentation 28 September at Masonic Hall


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.


Divisional Format

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.
