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 AllCirencester Singles - Round 11 | Thursday 4 April 2019 to Wednesday 29 May 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 1 May 2019)

There may have been only the one group this time but this was more than made up for by everyone's excellent enthusiasm to get on court which saw over 85% of matches played. Thanks for all your efforts and do continue to help spread the word if you can, it would be great to see numbers grow!

Group Summary:

Lots of action in this group with nearly every player playing at least seven matches and the majority of bonus points earned to boot- a fantastic effort! Rowena recorded an incredible eight wins to charge into the lead with a mammoth total. Christopher and David finished level in a tight tussle for second. We therefore look at their head to head to separate the two and this was "another typically close, enjoyable and hard fought" encounter which Christopher just sneaked through 6-3 7-6 to claim the silver.

Final Rankings:

  1. Rowena Wakefield 10.1 [W8] 18 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Christopher Edwards 8.2 [W5, L2] 12 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. David Renney 8.2 [W5, L3] 12 includes 2 bonus points
  4. Neil Gregory [W5, L2] 11
  5. Iryada Ashmore [W4, L2] 10 includes 2 bonus points
  6. Toby Lowsley-Williams 9.1 [W3, L4] 9 includes 2 bonus points
