The league is:

  • For everybody!

  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Collapse AllHolland Park & KMP Singles - Round 23 | Thursday 19 January 2017 to Wednesday 15 March 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 15 February 2017)

Despite a couple of exceptions this was overall a largely competitive round, with plenty of matches played too. Round of applause for the new group champions and hope to see you again next time!

Group Summary:

Lots of matches played here with both Fergal and Damien managing to get in all 7. It was a close call for the top spot, with both Fergal and Kevin racking up 5 wins each with bonus points - and although Kevin came out top in their head to head, Fergal managed to take a set, giving him the point he needed to just edge ahead. Well played! Kudos to Daniel too, who managed to push both players into 3 set territory.

Final Rankings:

  1. Fergal Mullins [W5, L2] 13 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Kevin Allen [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
