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 AllHampton Singles - Round 6 | Thursday 28 March 2019 to Wednesday 22 May 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 24 April 2019)

A good, competitive round in Hampton where there were a number of exciting contests on the courts and strong performances from both new and returning players. Thanks to everyone who got involved and we hope to see you again for many more matches throughout the summer months.

Group Summary:

Nick stole the show in this group, finishing unbeaten from the five matches he played to pull clear in first place and claim the prize on his debut. Kudos to Vik, Leila, James and Lidija for their efforts in their numerous epic encounters in this round. The race for the silver was unsurprisingly very tight and ultimately Vik's "tough" three set win over runner up rival Leila sees him take the honours this time.

Final Rankings:

  1. Nick Carter 8.2 [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Vik Ramakrishnan [W3, L2] 9 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Leila Panesar Morris 9.2 [W3, L2] 9 includes 2 bonus points
  4. James Meurer 9.2 [W2, L4] 8 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Lidija Matjacic 9.2 [W1, L2] 4
  6. Aman Sood [W1, L1] 2
  7. Pete Brewer [L4] 2 includes 2 bonus points

Player Comments:

  • "A great match! It all seemed to be going my way until a crux game at 2-1 in the second.. The 8 deuces proved that Vik wasn’t going to let this go without a fight! He really didn’t - taking that second set in the tie-break. We had to rush the third due to failing light and if it hadn’t been for my serve, for once, not failing me on crucial points I suspect we’d have still been out there - swinging away in the dark. Vik is a really nice chap - a great new addition to the league. Looking forward to our next battle. "  -- James
