Ilkley Open

The tournament runs from Saturday 24th July to Saturday 31st.

 

We have events from 8 & under up to over 55’s. The level is competitive but if you are looking at testing your skills against players from the north of England please get your entry in.

 

You must have a BTM (British tennis membership) to enter as well as a rating. Please click the link and type “Ilkley” into the search bar – https://competitions.lta.org.uk.

 

Entries close online on Saturday 10th July.

 

Box Leagues 

There are two tennis box leagues – Ladies Singles and Men’s Singles, and they parallel throughout the year. Each player gets to play all the others in the same division per round. At the end of the round, the top two players get promoted and the last two players move down one division.

 

The leagues have been run since November 2016 and after a pandemic pause, they are trying to get back up and going. The next round begins 1st of July.

 

If you are interested in joining, please reach out to Esmaiel at itboxleagues@gmail.com.
