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 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.

"Participation in the league was a great experience for me.  I am very happy that I can play tennis here.  I'm expecting in the next round to have nice meetings with the players and cool games."

Janusz Wilczynski

"I really enjoyed the Tennis League and have already signed up for Round 2. I am trying to get some of my friends to join. All the players I have met were very friendly and the games were played in a good spirit, but with the competitive element. I will continue to play matches against Richard Frampton and would happily meet up and play with everybody who was in the League.",

Collapse AllBromsgrove & Redditch Singles - Round 6 | Thursday 31 August 2017 to Wednesday 25 October 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 27 September 2017)

It was another successful round in Bromsgrove & Redditch Tennis League, so thank you all for taking part and playing some great matches! Guillaume cemented his position at the top of the group but was chased hard by Martyn, so there's all to play for again next time! 7 out of 15 matches were played in total, so keep up the good work.

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Guillaume for winning Group 1 for the second round in a row, finishing 4 points clear of runner up Martyn. Guillaume's toughest match was against Brian who narrowly missed out on the win by losing the third set championship tiebreak [13-11]... what a contest! There were also 4 double bagel results in this group though so it was quite a mixed bag! Don't forget to schedule your matches early next time to claim those midway bonus points!
