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 5 | Thursday 11 October 2018 to Wednesday 5 December 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 7 November 2018)

This was another competitive group with some close scorelines and only one point separating the top two players. Sadly one match finished short due to injury and another player withdrew, but the matches that were completed were all well contested. Thanks for supporting the league and hope to see you back next time!

Group Summary:

It was a successful return to league action for Jenny who finished top of the group with 3 wins, one point clear of runner up Laura who played the most matches although sadly one was unfinished as George picked up an injury. James also won 2 matches including a 3 set battle against Laura which was completed in 2 sessions. Ivaylo played well but lost to both James and Jenny in tricky weather conditions, namely a "blinding sun" and "gale force winds" respectively... hopefully better luck next round!

Final Rankings:

  1. Jenny Melvin [W3] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Laura Campari [W2, L2, UF1] 7 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. James Keating [W2] 4
  4. Richard Prescott [L2] 1
  5. George Henton [UF1] withdrawn
  6. Ivaylo Nikolov 10.1 [L3]
