The Winter League runs from September to March each season and comprises of 5 divisions each of up to 12 teams.
In a match there are 9 singles and 1 doubles games completed. A team consists of 3 players for singles and 2 players for doubles. It is normal for 2 of the 3 singles players to also compete the doubles game in a match but a team can use 1 or even 2 players additional to those competing in the singles, if they so wish.
The points system is based on one point for each individual game (singles or doubles) won. Thus the winning team can score between 6 to 10 points for a win.
There is also a Summer League running from May to August each year. The summer league is made up of 4 divisions each of 8 teams.
There is also a Team Handicap Knockout Cup in which all teams competing in the League are automatically entered into.
