The majority of teams compete in Division 2 in a localised league during the summer term only. Players have a limited amount of experience in competition and are of a recreational standard. A rating cap applies at Division 2 to provide more appropriate fixtures for teams involved.

Division 2 winners receive prizes and certificates from the LTA.

The local stages for Division 1 and Division 2 are organised by League Organiser Annie Smith who can be contacted by e-mail -
