  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!

  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Player Comments:

  • "What a most enjoyable match with Jesus who obviously loves playing tennis. Despite the shaky start he defended so well in the second set he forced so many errors from me by his steady play. I had to shift up a gear to finish the match as he was starting to find his flow. Absolute pleasure to meet Jesus and be on court with him ... look forward to next time "  -- James

Player Comments:

  • "A terrific match on yet another warm sunny day. It was a real pleasure to play against Rhodri. He is a dangerous opponent who can hit winners from anywhere. I managed to just stay on top to win some crucial games. Great fun Rhodri. Well played."  -- Andy

Player Comments:

  • "James is a classy tennis player with brilliant groundstrokes which kind of helps me to play well. I have lost to him before so this scoreline is not accurate of his level. Thanks James , win or lose it's always a pleasure to play against you."  -- Andy

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play another match with Shane. It was very warm conditions. The score is harsh because most of the games were quite tight. Shane didn't quite bring his 'A' game today but I had to focus as he can come up with some awesome shots and put the pressure on. Look forward to next time Shane!"  -- Andy

Reveal CommentRhodri Andrews bt Shane Broderick (May 28) 4-6, 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "What a battle this was with Shane! The conditions weren't favourable - it wasn't particularly hot but humidity was high. I remember looking round and parents in the nearby playpark were wearing fleeces, while Shane and I were soaking wet and this was only three games in! Every point was keenly contested and the match swung back and forth as we traded games evenly. Shane's backhand slice caused me problems as well as his court coverage, a combination of which meant I often leaked errors looking for the space and wondering how I could fire the ball past Shane. Most games went to deuce and even in the business end of each set there was still no guessing as to who would triumph. A draw would have been the best result here. Cheers Shane!"  -- Rhodri
Reveal CommentRhodri Andrews bt David Quinn (May 27) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A real pleasure meeting and playing David in hot conditions. I managed to fire off some good winners in the first set but the second set was a lot closer with a lot of deuces making for some tight games. It was down to a mixture of my forehand going missing and David landing several wicked drop shots as well, his deft touches really pulling me around the court at times! David really played with the spirit tennis should be played with; a real gentleman. Hope to play you again soon!"  -- Rhodri

Group Summary:

Kerber wasn't the only Angelique winning a title this week as our very own Angelique Blom stormed her way to the top of Group 2 with an extremely impressive 100% win record. Some would argue her achievement is even more impressive than Kerber's as she was able to do all of this without the losing a single set. There was a close race for second place with only one point separating Rachael and Dermot. . In the end it was Rachael who just pipped Dermot to the silver thanks to her win in their epic head to head. Great to see everyone take home a bonus prize thanks to their fantastic scheduling skills.
