Key points

  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • Players are grouped according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Everyone in the group plays each other once during the round
  • You get one point for each set you win
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls).
  • The winner of each group is the player with the most points at the end of the round

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "Another big battle against Nick - I've played no one more so always expect a tough game and 3 sets in 2 hours! Not our best game tonight and we were both below par. We had to deal with fading light in the first set which Nick nicked. A floodlight failure second set in dusky conditions and after a move to another court a full on night time floodlights in the final set. I like playing under the lights and Nick prefers daylight and that was the only difference in the end!! Nick's left-handedness always causes me problems so I'm happy to get off to a winning start!!" -- Marcos
