Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, 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!)
  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • 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 bottle of Champagne which has to be collected from us. A winner's certificate is also available on the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Player Comments:

  • "Potentially the craziest match of tennis I have ever played in. Conditions were tricky with a slippy court but there were some ridiculous rallies and retrievals especially in the later stages of the match. Jack was in control for most of the first two sets but I managed to fight back and scrape through the second set. Jack went 3-0 up in the third set but I managed to clinch the final set 7-5 in a match that swung back and forth throughout and could have gone either way. There were some incredible 20+ point rallies in a very hard fought contest. Jack played some really nice backhand ground strokes and has possibly the best drop shot I've ever played against. Thanks for the great game. "  -- Christopher

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable match. Am sure Nick and Hannah start getting more positive results when they play more regularly as Hannah has some great ground strokes and Nick is quick around the court and has tricky sliced shots. A good combination. On our side Gerard played really well, in particular keeping us in the first set. Thanks all for playing."  -- Alan

Not as busy perhaps as some groups but the top two teams at any rate played plenty of fine tennis. Suitably, their head-to-head was a real weather-defying battle just edged in the grizzle by Jens and John.

Group Summary:

Not everyone may know this, but you can enter the doubles in more than one team, so long as we have a suitable group to place you. We can't guarantee it doubles your chances of a group win, but it seems to have done the trick for Brett who, with his partner James, won six matches on the trot to end up in top spot. Runners up Christopher and Jonas did their best to break their momentum and took their match to a third set but it was not quite enough. Well done to Brett and James and to everyone in this competitive group (third-placed Jamie and Matthew had some of the best matches of the round!).

Group Summary:

That soft thud is the sound of Pietro and Enrico kicking themselves. They did the hard work in beating Kate and Colin in three tough sets, but couldn't match their opponents' scheduling skills. Kate and Colin went on to play all of their matches which meant they could consign that loss to tennis history and amass a group winning points total. Nicely done, as we are prone to mutter to ourselves here in Tennis Towers.
