This is the new website for the Colchester and District Tennis League. Unfortunately the previous site suddenly seemed to have difficulty in uploading and then stopped working. Fortunately an IT expert was on a home visit and was able to extract the relevant information to a new website; hence this new site at a new location.
Don’t forget there are more links at the foot of each page leading to more information.

If your club has a link to its website please check it is still current.
Colchester and District Tennis League 2021
As life slowly edges back to some sort of normality the League is providing a reduced league program for clubs with around half the usual number of matches. We hope everyone enjoyed their competitive tennis during this summer. The League season has now ended and the final tables are available on the link.
Press Officer’s Report 2021 (No.4)
The Stringers World Colchester and District Tennis League has reached its conclusion with most matches played during this shortened and difficult season. In the Men’s Premier Division the Essex A have won after a close battle with Frinton A. Frinton B top Division 1 and the David Lloyd Club have won both Division 2 and Division 4. Kirby B topped Division 3 despite losing their final match 5-4 against Dedham B for whom Saicho Ando and Shane Sparrow were in fine form, winning all their sets. The Essex B dominated Division 5 where they only dropped one set all season.
As in the Mens Premier Division the Ladies Premier was again a battle between the Essex A and Frinton A but this time Frinton came out on top thanks to a final match 9-0 defeat of Lexden Rackets and Fitness Club A. Division 1 was also very close with the Essex B needing seven sets to go top they only managed a 5-4 victory against Kirby A which meant the title going to those rivals. David Lloyd A were strong victors in Division 2 but Division 3 was incredibly close between all five teams with Frinton B and Spring Lane A tied top on 24 points and third placed Little Clacton on 23 points. Division 4 was won by the Essex D and Division 5 by David Lloyd B.

Wivenhoe A were undefeated in Division 1 as were Lexden Rackets and Fitness Club B in Division 2. David Lloyd A were totally dominant in Division 3 but Division 4 was a much closer affair. Frinton C won this by one and a half points. After defeating Lexden Rackets and Fitness Club C 9-0 they left Little Clacton A needing 2 points from their final match. Away to the Essex D they lost 9-0 leaving Frinton C champions. David Lloyd Club B won Division 5 after beating Kirby C 9-0.
