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 AllHaggerston Park Singles - Round 7 | Thursday 29 November 2018 to Wednesday 6 February 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 2 January 2019)

This was the round that spanned Christmas, inevitably a hard time of year to get matches, and it seemed many of you struggled to get matches played. Don't forget, we are always here to help if we can and communication between players is very much the name of the game. All credit to those who did play, especially those who got three or four matches done and dusted. Do hope you find it easier as the weather warms up and the days get longer.

Group Summary:

A hat trick of wins lobbed Otto to the top of this group and without dropping a set. Very well played. Jon finished a couple of points behind to take second place. Unfortunately, this was not a very busy group with two players failing to get underway. This is always distressing to see and do hope you are ok. Another time, please do let us know if you are struggling to hear back or to get matches played and we will help if we can.

Final Rankings:

  1. Otto Szoke [W3] 6 WINNER
  2. Jon Head [W2, L1] 4 RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

A very convincing win for Nicholas with four victories out of four, including, he says, an enjoyable and friendly match against Lindsey which was "a welcome break from the chaos of Christmas." Well done too to runner up Andrew and to Lindsey, the only player in either group to get those all important bonus points. Sorry to see Joshua did not get going. Hope you are ok.
