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 AllGuildford Singles - Round 30 | Thursday 3 October 2019 to Wednesday 27 November 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 30 October 2019)

A very nice round to see out the old tennis year with lots of good matches played. Thank you for all the tennis you have played this year and for supporting the league. Hope you will be able to do it all over again in January! Meanwhile our very best wishes for a great Christmas and New Year!

Group Summary:

Andreas may have lost a couple of matches (including to Bal, a group winner last time and runner-up this time) but this was a great debut round. Andreas ended up playing more matches and winning more than anyone else! Had Nick played more matches we might have another story to tell, but no doubt who owns the win this time!

A nice little demonstration in this group of how bonus points can come to your rescue. Patrick beat Teodor in their match but Teodor went on to win more matches and points in total, but thanks to bonus points Patrick was able after all to grab his silver medal.
