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 AllGuildford Singles - Round 31 | Thursday 23 January 2020 to Wednesday 18 March 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 19 February 2020)

A great round in Guildford as always with 69% of all possible matches played which is a very respectable number. Thanks for all the commitment and great commentaries.

Group Summary:

Just as last time, first and second places went to Andreas and Bal which means Andreas has successfully defended his title and this time, reversed his 4-6, 3-6 defeat to Bal with a 7-6, 6-2 win! Congratulations to both of them! Great matches throughout this group and Geoff was really unlucky not to come away with a win after so many close matches. Hopefully next time!

  1. Andreas Louloudiadis 9.2 [W5] 10 WINNER
  2. Bal Sohi [W3, L2] 9 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

Patrick moves from runner up last time to winner this time despite a tumble which apparently involved a 360 degree roll! He did so in some style winning 5 matches out of 5, coming back from 3 down in the first set against Pol, and surviving tough rallies v Donghyun, a tight second set v Mike, great topspin from Mark and power shots and servers from Teodor. Congratulations to him and well played all!

Player Comments:

  • "Very good game- had to come back from 3 or so down in the first set -change my approach to play against Pol's style -and it was tight throughout. Great court running & play from Pol. I got some luck with the wind, blowing some lobs in, and managed to see out the 2nd tight set. Well played."  -- Patrick

Player Comments:

  • "What a great match. It got really intense at the end and was decided by small details. Mark hit some really good shots and I was greatful to be a bit more consistent after a shaky start. Thanks for the match Mark!"  -- Pol
  • "Well done Pol. It was an intense match but mostly due to the number of mistakes. At times in looked like we were both trying not to win. As for the result, I can have no complaints, I haven't been good enough in any of my matches so far and have been lucky to win any at all. Hopefully I'll find my form in time for the next league," -- Mike

Player Comments:

  • "The game was a lot tighter than the scores suggest - Andrei playing with some lovely power shots and serves -which made for tough rallies and lots of energy spent! The wind played a factor in the 2nd half with shots being pushed long or dropping short on the other side, but I just managed to find some angles in the tight games. Cheers for great game Andrei."  -- Patrick
Reveal CommentPol Massana bt Mark Wilding (Feb 23) 7-6 (7-3), 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Well done Pol, a deserved winner and the only one on the court actually playing tennis and exhibiting control. Score-line is definitely flattering to me., While the conditions were terrible, it was simply the worst I've ever played - I remember hitting the ball cleanly on only two occasions throughout the whole game. Deeply frustrating. Completely baffling. Feel I need a break from this league and from this game. Impossible to enjoy it when playing like this."  -- Mark

Player Comments:

Reveal CommentPatrick Rivet bt Mark Wilding (Feb 14) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable game in extremely windy conditions... disappointed I couldn't take it to a third as it was good fun. Pat as always had great variation and good control... deserved the win... I was struggling with my consistency for most of the game... just felt I was settling in that second set from 2-0 down but lost that final service game. Anyway, no doubt who deserved it! Well done Pat. I look forward to our next game!"  -- Mark
  • "Thanks for another enjoyable game Mark - great topspin shots from you there, and good winners from topspin return of serve and dropshots too. I gotta say I had the rub of the green with the wind, some mishits and getting up from falling over (which Mark described as me almost doing a 360!!). Well played," -- Patrick
Reveal CommentMike Stannard bt Teodor Sava (Feb 7) 7-5, 1-6, 7-6 (8-6)

Player Comments:

  • "Boy am I glad it's Saturday tomorrow, 4 matches in 6 days and I'm exhausted. Andrei and I have just finished a 2 1/2 hour marathon that Andrei didn't deserve to lose. It was a battle. When you play Andrei the ball just keeps coming back, I think last time we played I likened it to playing against a brick wall because it is that hard to get it past him. I had nothing left at the end and was lucky to come out on top. Thanks Andrei and really well played."  -- Mike

  • "Another Grand Slam Final Sunday and another match between Mark and I. Last year it was Wimbledon, today the Aussie Open. At least the final had finished before we played this time though. Last year Mark won, this time I got revenge. It was a tough, competitive match which I had to put a lot into to win. It is always a pleasure to play Mark. Thanks mate, until next time."  -- Mike
