About The League
Brief History of Wakefield and District Tennis League.
In the first instance was formed as West Riding Tennis League and only changed to Wakefield and District Tennis League in the 1930s. The exact date/year of change appears now to be unknown.
With the exception of the war years the Wakefield and District Tennis League has run up to the present day. Many small clubs that were part of the league at the beginning have sadly ceased to exist. Many of these were clubs associated with businesses in the local area that have now stopped trading, and their tennis clubs also were lost.
