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


The Hong Kong Ladies Tennis League (HKLTL) is a non-profit organization comprised of women tennis players, representing various private clubs and independent teams around Hong Kong. 

The HKLTL players compete in weekly tennis matches throughout the year.  League matches are played in the Winter season, from January to May and in the Fall Season, from September to November.

Other league activities include an annual Christmas charity tournament. The league is exploring tournament opportunities with ladies’ leagues in neighbouring Asian countries.  


The HKLTL aims to provide an organized program of competitive tennis for non-professional, women tennis players, aged 18 and above.  The league also raises funds for various charities in and around Hong Kong.


In 1982, through the inspiration of former Hong Kong Tennis Association (HKTA) Executive Director, Ed Hardisty and his HTA committee, the Ladies Social Team Tennis League was founded.  In 1983, management of the league was handed over to HKTA volunteers and the league was renamed the Ladies Winter Tennis League (LWTL).

The LWTL, led by the first chairwoman, Pauline Arnold and a committee of four women, took over the responsibility of managing the league of 20 teams. By 1986, it had grown to 47 teams with 300 playing members. By 2003, the league reached a total of 96 teams and 550 players.

In August 2005, the league modified its tennis program from a winter league to a year-round program and changed its name to the Hong Kong Ladies Tennis League (HKLTL). 

In January 2015 the HKLTL contains 68 teams and 544 players.
