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 AllFrome Singles - Round 11 | Thursday 4 October 2018 to Wednesday 28 November 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 31 October 2018)

Just the one group in this Autumn round, but there was still many enjoyable games of tennis played and an excellent show of sportsmanship on and off court- thanks everyone. It would be great to see the league grow in 2019, so do spread the word locally if you can. Here's to many more matches in the new year!

Group Summary:

Jon proved to be unstoppable on his debut, surging to five straight wins and earning bonus points to leave us in no doubt as to who's the new champ - can he keep this up next time? Adam did come close to ending Jon's winning streak in their "tough, tight and enjoyable game". Terry combined his excellent scheduling skills with three wins and a point from a marathon defeat to Adam to take the silver by a whisker. Well played all.

Final Rankings:

  1. Jon Doel [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Terry Gillman 9.1 [W3, L2] 9 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Adam Day [W4, L1] 8
  4. James Coates [L3]
  5. Jeremy Naylor [L3]
  6. Sarah Playden [L3]

Reveal CommentJon Doel bt Adam Day (Nov 15) 7-5, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A tough tight enjoyable game played indoors under the lights at Writhlington tennis centre on a mild November evening. Jon started well going 3-0 up in the first set but Adam dragged it back finding his form to level it at 3-3. Both players traded regularly from the baseline with Adam regularly using drop shots to keep Jon on his toes. Jon’s running and lack of fitness meant he got a sweat on even in shirts and t shirt in November. Jon eventually closed it out 7-5 to win the first set. The second set started much the same, Jon going 3-0 up and Adam bringing it back to 3-3. Jon served consistently with variation to hold onto win the second set 6-4. A great contest with excellent line calls and very fair sportsmanship. Really enjoyable."  -- Jon
