If you never lose then you can never appreciate the victories.

Welcome to the Hong Kong Ladies Tennis League (HKLTL)

The HKLTL is a non-profit organization comprised of women tennis players from private clubs and independent tennis team throughout Hong Kong. The league offers competitive doubles play in weekly matches during one full season in the year broken into two parts, fall running from September to December and spring running from January to April.

Coronavirus and HKLTL Spring Season

Dear Captains
I hope you are all staying healthy during this crazy time in Hong Kong. 
 
The Committee met today to discuss the remaining season. After much discussion we made the following decisions.
 
1- the rest of the Spring 2020 season is canceled. It will not be possible, even under perfect circumstances, to complete the nearly 200 matches yet to be played. 
 
2- We have decided to use the end of Fall 2019 results to close the season. 
 
It's been an incredibly difficult year, with the protests last Fall and now the Coronavirus. There is no 'norm' and all teams have various issues. But we wanted to acknowledge, in some way, the efforts of teams in the  complete first half season. 
 
Therefore, in line with our policy of one up/one down, here is how the season ended up. 
 
Winners
Premier- HLY
Div 1- Tai Po
Div 2- HLY
Div 3- Parkview
Div 4- LRC Hot Shots
Div 5- CWB Diamonds
 
Teams at the bottom
Premier- DB Trailblazers
Div 1- AC
Div 2- DB Dragons
Div 3- HKFC
Div 4- HKCC
 
I hope that you will all understand that our role is to see the bigger picture and to make decisions on what is best for the league as a whole.  Please join us in congratulating the Winners of this unusual season.  
 
Finally, our end of season luncheon at AMC has been canceled. This was a decision made by AMC. We are looking into other possible options and will let you know. 
 
Registration will take place from April 18- May 1. 
 
Thank you for your support and understanding,

--

Warm Regards

Recycle your plastic tennis ball can lids into prosthetic arms

The LRC tennis community has launched an exciting CSR initiative to collect tennis ball can plastic “lids”to be recycled into prosthetic arms for children around the world including Africa and Asia as well as other disability aids.

e-Nable is a global organisation who have developed a technology to 3D print prosthetic arms for children.

Envision is the Australian “chapter” of e-Nable  (based in Melbourne) who have developed a process to print the prosthetic arms from recycled Polyethylene. Envision are also developing processes to convert Low Density Polyethylene into disability aids. For example, they have developed a can opener and a clip which can be attached to wheeled-walkers to enable the elderly to clip walking sticks to the wheeled-walkers.

The LRC tennis community is supporting Envision by collecting number 4 tennis ball plastic lids, which means lids from all brands EXCEPT Head ie Dunlop, Slazenger, Wilson and Decathlon lids are all perfect. There will be a well labelled collection point by the Sports Desk and we encourage you to participate! 

More information on Envision’s work, in particular the conversion of beverage caps into prosthetic arms for children can be found at the following website https://envision.org.au/

You can drop the lids off at the LRC or give to Michele Windsor or Margurite Hess and we will arrange to get them to Australia.
