  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other

  • 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

Collapse AllChiswick House Gardens Singles - Round 6 | Thursday 3 September 2020 to Wednesday 28 October 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 30 September 2020)

Another busy round in Chiswick House Gardens league with 3 well contested groups and lots of on court drama! Our debutants quickly got into their stride earning midway bonus points and a few topping their groups, and some old rivalries were renewed as well. Keep up the good work!

Group Summary:

There was a new face at the top of Group 1 as Marco impressed on debut with 5 wins undefeated and all without dropping a set! In fact there were no 3 set matches in the whole group which is unusual, and Andrew's match against Paul was the closest scoreline at 6-3 6-4. It was a close contest for runner up spot with Flavio just pipping Andrew to the post thanks to earning midway bonus points.

Final Rankings:

  1. Marco Molone [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Flavio Taffoni 7.2 [W4, L2] 10 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

Another Leagues debutant led the way in Group 2, with Mauricio pulling off a clean sweep of 7 wins to finish a point clear of runner up Eddy. Fittingly their head to head was a "super fun" 3 setter while Eddy had a "really tough" match against Aneet in windy conditions. Well done to Jacqui too for staving off a third set against Hannah by winning the second set 7-5.

Group Summary:

Two debutants led the way as Dino and Sean notched up 7 and 5 wins respectively to claim the top spots. Their head to head was a "very sporting match" and Sean made Dino work harder in the second set, but impressively 5 of Dino's wins were 'double bagels'! It was altogether tougher for Marco as he won a "really enjoyable and fighting match" against Zoe in 3 close sets.
