  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • Players are grouped according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Everyone in the group plays each other once during the round
  • You get one point for each set you win
  • 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 each group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winners get a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of the groups (and sometimes the top two) are promoted for the next round; those who come bottom (and sometimes the bottom two) are demoted

Player Comments:

  • "A great match particularly the first set which Eleni went 4-1 up. This is when I realised I had to sort things out or this was going to be loss number 4! The second set was more straightforward but there was still plenty of deuce games and the scoreline flatters me. A final note: kudos goes to Eleni for lending me her hat for games on the sunny side, exceedingly sporting! So a note to all (including myself) remember your hat as the sun is really low during the days now."  -- Luther
