Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • 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 the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Thanks for taking part in another competitive round in Aberdeen where there was a good number of matches played and some very tight tussles for the group crowns too. Hope to see you all next time for more tennis throughout the summer months!

Group Summary:

Oluwatosin and Attila once again found themselves battling it out for top spot in group one, and as was the case in the last round it ultimately all comes down to the match between the two. This was "an epic match lasting over 2hrs which had everything" and in the end it was Oluwatosin who sneaked through with a 4-6 6-2 6-4 victory to turn the tables on Attila this time - well played both. Hats off to Ryan too for making it onto court for the most matches!

Final Rankings:

  1. Oluwatosin Ige 8.2 [W4] 10 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Attila Simon [W3, L1] 9 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

A very busy group two with nearly every match played and the majority of bonus points earned too - thanks for your efforts everyone. Matt's rise up the ranks continues as he won six out of six for the second round in a row to earn a promotion to group one next time. Adnan wasn't far behind the new champ, starting quickest to win the first set in their head to head, but he ultimately comes up a little short and finishes a point behind in second this time. Well played all.
