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.

Collapse AllBillesley Singles - Round 3 | Thursday 2 March 2017 to Wednesday 26 April 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 29 March 2017)

The Billesley league is still trying to find it's feet with only 1 group this round. Hopefully, with Summer approaching (fingers crossed!) we will have a greater turnout next time with lots of matches played.

Group Summary:

An epic encounter between Anton and Jahual saw Anton come out on top, and claim the group! But did Jessica let the guys off the hook? Her win over Anton was pretty impressive. Top marks to Hannah for playing 3 matches and earning her bonus points. Meanwhile, here's to finding some more players and expanding the groups next time!

Final Rankings:

  1. Anton Gaydarov 10.2 [W2, L1] 6 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Jahual Haq [W1, L1] 3 RUNNER UP
  3. Jessica Mapp [W1] 2
  4. Reiss Kingdon [W1] 2
  5. Hannah Martin [L3] 2 includes 2 bonus points

Player Comments:

  • "It was a great match. Hannah is a very difficult opponent, chasing every ball, very aggresive as well. There were plenty of good rallies, some high quality moments from both sides. To be honest the scoreboard is a little unfair. "  -- Anton
