This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a singles league just for women
  • Groups are put together by standard
  • 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 all women 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 AllGlasgow Women's Singles - Round 4 | Thursday 9 August 2018 to Wednesday 3 October 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 5 September 2018)

Can you spread the word? The tennis is so good in this small league that we would love more players to get involved. We know it will take time to build up the numbers, but if you have any suggestions about things we might do to promote the women's league do drop as a line... and here's to the next round!

Group Summary:

Taggart is retired, but we don't need detective work to uncover the identity of our serial winner in the Glasgow Women's League. Once again (third time in a row) Gillian played the best tennis and took the crown. Not that it was always ways easy and Erin certainly gave the champ a run for her money over three exciting sets. Erin also narrowly defeated Miranda in three sets, so though the two tied on points, runner up is Erin. Really nice matches this round... Hats off again to Gillian - how long can her winning run continue?

Final Rankings:

  1. Gillian Clark 10.1 [W3] 6 WINNER
  2. Erin Kerr [W2, L1] 5 RUNNER UP
  3. Miranda Ralston 9.2 [W2, L1] 5
  4. Alison Scouller [W1, L2] 5 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Nicola Oldham [W1, L3] 2
  6. Eva Yera [L2]
  7. Patricia Quinn
