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 27 | Thursday 14 February 2019 to Wednesday 10 April 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 13 March 2019)

Thanks for taking part in this competitive spring round in Guildford, where there were close battles for both of the group crowns. It was great to see matches played in a friendly spirit too with many generous comments accompanying the scores. Hope to see you next time for much more tennis in the sunshine!

Group Summary:

There was an exciting race to the finish line in group one, with Clinton and Nick both recording three wins and bonus points to be neck and neck coming down the home straight. It was "another thoroughly enjoyable match" between the two and after "some terrific play" Clinton emerged with the victory to take the gold. Now third placed Charlie defeated the top two and also finished with three wins to his name, so what might have happened had he played a couple more?

Final Rankings:

  1. Clinton Smith 9.2 [W3, L2] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Nick Holmes 9.1 [W3, L3] 8 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

A very busy group two with the nearly everyone getting on court for five or six matches and numerous bonus prizes earned too. At the top of the table it was another close call for pole position as Bal and Nicholas finished tied on twelve points apiece. Their head to head was a "tough game played in a good spirit", where Bal eventually took the upper hand to win 7-6, 6-2 and with this victory clinches the title. Hats off to Kate and Caryn who kept us on the edge of our seats in their thrilling three set match.
