Winter Leinster League

Info received on this:


If you would like to enter please let Catherine know.

Hi all,


The online entry to the 2017 South Leinster Winter League is now open.


We have updated last Winter’s Rules to cater for suggestions raised by participating Clubs. The main changes are:

·         Number of matches: Teams within a Round Robin box will play each other once. This will reduce the total number of matches.

·         MATCH DAY & TIME: We are asking clubs for their preferences so we can schedule home matches around them. Clubs may negotiate a different time, but only one change is allowed.

·         We have added an extra group: ITN 8 & below.

·         The Committee reserves the right to promote a player before the league starts if past results suggest he/she is in the incorrect ITN level.

·         Winner and Runner-up on each round robin box will go through into the knock-out stage.



·         Rules and Regulations

·         How to Enter a team online

·         Team Entry Form for those that prefer to enter their teams by post

·         Player Registration Form


Please read the Rules carefully. From a practical point of view the main facts that you will require when organizing your teams are:

·         Dates: Sunday 17th of September to Saturday 25th November

·         Total number of matches in the round robin phase is likely to be 3 or 4.

·         Whenever possible teams will be grouped geographically (unlikely to be possible in the ITN3 & below event). We’ll do our best to balance the number of long & short distance matches.

·         Format: As last year’s Winter League

o   4 players per team: two men and two ladies

o   one men doubles & one ladies doubles, followed by

o   two mixed doubles (order of merit must be followed)

o   Matches best of three sets with championship tie-break in the third

·         Deadlines:

o   Team Registration: 23rd August

o   Player Registration: 28th August

o   Draws & Schedule published: 6th September

o   There will be no matches scheduled when St. Anne’s & Kilkenny Veteran Tournaments are on.

o   Finals: Saturday 25th November

·         Please make sure that all teams have enough substitutes. If a player isn’t available he/she should be replaced by a substitute instead of looking for a change of date. Rule 14. explains on how substitutes should be used.



In order to gather feed-back and discuss issues that may have arisen we will have a meeting a few days after the end of the League. The meeting has been provisionally scheduled for Thursday 30th November at 7PM. Please mark this date in your Calendar.


I will be not available next week but will be back in the office on Monday 21st August. I will look into any queries you may have sent by e-mail then or you can ring me on 086-0468773 from Monday 21st if you prefer.


Best wishes,
