  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, so men and women play each other

  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • 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

Getting off to an early start with match scheduling paid dividends for William and Ben who took the top 2 spots in this curtailed round, with William's win in their head to head securing the title. Sadly Desmond had to retire early through injury after an exciting opening set against Ben (we hope you recover soon), and William survived many "swings in momentum and deuce games" to win a 3 setter against George.

Collapse AllBattersea Park Doubles - Round 19 | Thursday 23 January 2020 to Wednesday 1 April 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 26 February 2020)

A great round in Battersea! Groups were committed, friendly, and full of new as well as familiar contenders. It was such a shame it had to be cut short. Here's to the next one, whenever that may be!

Group Summary:

A good start to this round, unfortunately cut short! Richard and Alex claim two wins, having a great start to their debut in the doubles! Sophy and Nami pushed back and earned their Match of the Group title against George and Howard, stealing the win in the tie break. Then we also see Paul and Nelly, runners up in the previous round, looking to start their journey to the top with a win against Oliver and George. But alas, we will never know! Well played all and congratulations to the winning pair!
