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.

Collapse AllCirencester Singles - Round 14 | Thursday 23 January 2020 to Wednesday 18 March 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 19 February 2020)

All but three matches were played in this well fought group. That's 80% of the total. Well done Cirencester and look forward to more results when we can all play tennis again.

Group Summary:

Newcomer Sam overtakes defending champ Neil and tops the group with a convincing performance. He had a good game with Neil, a fun game in gusty gales with Stefano, another wind-effected match with Rowena, a well fought match with Christopher in spring conditions (at last) and in his (windy!) match v Mark, says the second set was the highlight. That's everyone played! Well done Sam!

Final Rankings:

  1. Sam Hoskins [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Neil Gregory [W3, L1] 6 RUNNER UP
  3. Christopher Edwards 8.2 [W2, L2, UF1] 5
  4. Mark Bruton 10.2 [W1, L3] 2

Player Comments:

  • "We played one set on 7th February which I won 6-3 and then we agreed to delay finishing the match as the rain was coming on. We tried repeatedly to resume over the following weeks and for various reasons couldn't. We booked today Tuesday 17th , the last day of the slot, to try to finish the match but precautions re the coronavirus and my concerns about possible infections on my side of the family led us to agreed to call it off. Very disappointing but in the scheme of things sensible. "  -- Christopher
