ADTL 50 History Published
October 30, 2016 - 10:59 PM
The story of the ADTL is one of remarkable success. Initially started to provide midweek mixed doubles matches in the summer months for teams local to Aylesbury, it catered for 24 teams and about 100 players in its first season. Fifty years later it provides competition for around 300 teams altogether playing both on summer and winter evenings (under floodlights) and winter weekends, with players coming from four different counties and is probably the largest local tennis league in the country. This history of this remarkable story has been painstakingly researched and documented by David Orchard who players will recognise as a stalwart of Bucks Tennis for more years than he will admit to! A copy of the document is attached and I am sure that all A&DTL players past and present will find it fascinating reading! A big thanks for your great work here David!
