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

Collapse AllAberdeen Singles - Round 25 | Thursday 23 July 2020 to Wednesday 16 September 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 19 August 2020)

It was great to welcome 4 new players to the league and to see friendly, competitive tennis return to the courts of Aberdeen! Even better that the round wasn't cut short this time and collectively you managed to play three quarters of all possible matches which is a great effort. Well done for dusting off your rackets and picking up where you left off with lots of close and competitive matches. Here's to the next round already!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Oluwatosin for retaining his Group 1 crown in style, winning all 8 matches to finish unbeaten on 18 points, 2 points clear of runner up Ross. Oluwatosin was put through his paces by Stephen "chasing everything down" in a close first set, while Stephen recovered from a shaky warm up to win a key first set tiebreak and then the match against Puranjay. Meanwhile Ross won two 3 setters against Stephen and John so all in all a very competitive group.

Reveal CommentStephen Gerrard bt John Kellett (Jul 24) 4-2, 5-4

Player Comments:

  • "Thought I was going to get a doing but caught honest John on a bad night and got lucky. John disagreed twice that it was his point claiming he had hit the ball out which I thought was brilliant for an Arsenal supporter. Surprised John in first set hitting a couple of pot holes and then knocked the heart out of him when he was 4-3 up in second and the ball rested on top of the net cord and the wind blew it over to his side. Wind and crown invasions helped."  -- Stephen

Group Summary:

It was a role reversal at the top of Group 2 with Robbie pipping Grant to top spot whereas Grant took the honours in the last round. This time Robbie finished unbeaten on 7 wins, 2 points clear of Grant, although the pair are "2-2 in league games now, next one is the winner"! Robbie was also made to work hard for his wins by Lee and Malcolm, saving a set point in the latter, while Grant was taken to 3 tough sets by Malcolm in a match that "had everything"... well played!
