Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • 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 
  • 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!)
  • 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

  • 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 available on the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

One of the best rounds yet. My opponents were basically all superior players, but my strategy of relentlessly getting the ball over the net somehow prevailed. I think I might get found out in div 2... surely wrinkly power has its limits

Collapse AllBattersea Park Doubles - Round 15 | Thursday 13 September 2018 to Wednesday 21 November 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 17 October 2018)

A good number of matches played in this Autumn doubles round in Battersea Park, so thanks for all your efforts as we know it can be more difficult to schedule when four people are involved. There was some "great all court play" from both new and returning pairs and well done to those of you that secured a group prize. Hope to see you again when we return in the spring!

Group Summary:

Kevin & Cary secured a couple of wins and a couple of points from unfinished matches to pull clear in first place. Alex & Jack made the new champs work hard in their head to head, which unfortunately ended as a TBC, and thanks to hard fought victories over Alex & Keren and Tom & Tommy they claim the runner up spot.

Final Rankings:

  1. Kevin Allen & Cary Gibson [W2, UF2] 6 WINNER
  2. Alex Smyth & Jack Watton [W2, UF1] 4 RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

There was a tight tussle between Travis & Doug and David & Nicola at the top of group two with both pairs playing four matches and notching up three wins apiece. Crucially Travis & Doug also managed to win a set in their epic unfinished encounter with Mark & Will and this gives them the extra point they need to sneak across the line in first. Kudos to John & Carol Ann for playing four matches too.
