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 singles league just for women
  • Groups are put together by standard
  • 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 all women 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.

The new round starts early in January... please do add it to your New Year's resolutions but for now, we wish you a great Christmas and a tennis-filled New Year!

Group Summary:

Well done to Katrina for being the matchmaker in this group - she played four times as many matches as anyone else. Her reward? Anothe well-deserved group win! Lot's to play for next time with Anil in particular well-placed to grab another group win.

Final Rankings:

  1. Katrina Capey 10.2 [W2, L2] 6 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Anil Akalin [W1] 2 RUNNER UP
  3. Charmaine Rhule [W1] 2
  4. Ellie Harbage [L1]
  5. Pelin Ozbozkurt [L1]
  6. Tali Singer 10.2

Reveal CommentKatrina Capey bt Pelin Ozbozkurt (Oct 4) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A great match with a great opponent, thank you Pelin. The score line does not tell the true tale of the match - some absolutsly awesome rallies including a couple of great points at the net and i was forced to play my A game through out. Clearly a very talented opponent, had it not been for Pelin playing for the first time in 8 months I've no doubt the scoreline would probably be the other way round! Great to be pushed to improve my level and definitely look forward to a rematch. Thank you for a lovely evening and all the best with the rest of the league. "  -- Katrina

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentKatrina Capey bt Ellie Harbage (Sep 27) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A brilliant match up with some cracking shots played all round. If a game didn't have at least one deuce in it it was certainly a rarity, some had too many to count! A lovely match to be part of with a lovely opponent on a slightly blustery but mostly very pleasant autumnal evening (after a day of rain we weren't sure what to expect but decided we'd embrace it whatever the weather!) I've no idea how I won the match as it definitely could have gone either way, but I think Ellie's hard core morning work out probably went in my favour when it came down to the crunch! Thank you for a great match and great company and I definitely look forward to a rematch! All the best with the rest to the league."  -- Katrina

Group Summary:

If group one was a little light on matches we had tennis a plenty in our second group. Fiona repeated her group triumph of last round battling through some great matches to come out on top. Meanwhile, Iva, who took the champ to a third set, was the leader of the chasing pack and earns a laudable silver. Excellent tennis all.

Final Rankings:

  1. Fiona McLean [W6] 12 WINNER
  2. Iva Golob [W4, L1, UF1] 10 RUNNER UP
  3. Sophia Hart [W3, L3] 7
