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 AllCrawley Singles - Round 15 | Thursday 19 September 2019 to Wednesday 13 November 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 16 October 2019)

Thirty matches were played this round and if that doesn't quite make the record books for the percentage of possible matches completed, the great tennis meant anything missing in quantity was more than made up in quality!

Group Summary:

Defending champ Daniele played only one match this round and those who came 2nd, 3rd and 4th last time (Vishal, Zac and Catalin) all moved up one spot to come 1st, 2nd and 3rd! Some very close matches too, particularly for Catalin whose match of the group v Aitor sounds like a classic!

Final Rankings:

  1. Vishal Patel [W4] 8 WINNER
  2. Zac Barber 9.2 [W2, UF1] 5 RUNNER UP
  3. Catalin Iordache [W1, L2] 5 includes 2 bonus points
  4. Aitor Lopez De Uralde 8.2 [L3] 4 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Viraj Limbachia [W1, L1, UF1] 3
  6. Daniele Amirante [L1] 1
  7. Abdullah Haider [L1] 1

Group Summary:

Julia and Mike are both working their way up this group, finishing 2nd and 3rd, compared with 3rd and 4th last time but this was Pawel's round!

Group Summary:

It was interesting to see Peter give two such close matches to the first and second placed players (Graeme and James) and a shame for him that his final position (4th) didn't reflect this. But that's the way it goes sometimes and Graeme and James played more matches and got their bonus points. They finished neck and neck on points but their own 3 setter, with both forcing the other into mistakes finished with Graeme the winner of match and the group, and two very tired players at the end. Congratulations!

Final Rankings:

  1. Graeme Howell [W4] 10 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. James Atkin [W3, L2] 10 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Catriona Knight [W3, L1] 8 includes 2 bonus points
