At the Morley Club we participate in five leagues, three evening leagues and two teams in an afternoon league. Played under Federation rules are the Tuesday evening County League and the Cawston Evening Triples League. The afternoon league is the NANSA League where we enter, the Morley Tigers and the Morley Panthers.
We are affiliated to the E.B.A. and participate in the Men’s County Wednesday evening League, and the Wednesday afternoon Ladies League as well as other knockout cup competitions.
We have a wide selection of internal competitions which are largely played under EBA rules.
The afternoon singles and triples leagues are played throughout the season and the winner of the singles league can go forward to the County singles competition.
In addition we run a number of trophy competitions which cover both men’s and ladie’s singles competitions as well as mixed pairs and triples.
We also run an open triples competition on the first Saturday of each month between May and September. The entry fee is £15 per team of 3 blocks of three, with cash prizes for the winning teams.
