  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!

  • 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
  • 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.

"It has been great and I have thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again."

 

"It was such fun, I was pleased to be losing less with each match played and even more pleased at just how many games went stuck at deuce/adv for ages. Hey, I now need to fine tune my competitive spirit and not give up at the last point or feel sorry for my opponent when I get to 40-0! So close, yet so far!! Count me in for next time."

 

"Looking forward to some more tennis!"

Ewan Shears

Reveal CommentTimothy Jones bt David Jovic (Apr 17) 7-5, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was a case of fourth time lucky in terms of playing this match following previous postponements owing to snow, rain and even an international diplomatic incident. The match was as close as ever against David, whose backhand was particularly on form - he must have hit at least 15 clean winners off it. The first set could, and perhaps should, have gone to a tie-break, with some really strong points throughout. The second set scoreline was unrepresentative; there were a number of deuces and the gusting wind began to play a frustrating role too. Looking forward to another contest against him soon."  -- Timothy
Reveal CommentTom Harvey bt Julian Leichtmann (Apr 15) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Although Julian was suffering with some aches and pains from his epic battle with Marcos the day before, we still managed to have some fantastic rallies, mixing some heavy hitting with delicate slices. Having been down in the second I was relieved to eventually cruel across the line as I would have been suffering as well if we had gone to a third! "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentMarcos Fernandez bt Julian Leichtmann (Apr 15) 7-5, 6-7 (5-7), [10-7]

Player Comments:

  • "A very competitive first match against Julian with many exhausting games that seemed to go on forever. It took over 2hrs 20mins to complete the first two sets which was why we finished with a championship tie-breaker, nearly ended up being 3 hours on court. I struggled against Julians top spin shots, I was forced way back in the court from where I cant do any damage. We both couldnt find any form really and we were fighting ourselves as much as each other. I was happy for this game to end and to get the win. Look forward to as better game next time with Julian."  -- Marcos
Reveal CommentTimothy Jones bt Tom Harvey (Apr 10) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "My matches against Tom are always closely-fought battles, but this 2-hour epic was our tightest contest yet. Tom got into his stride early and was ahead in the first set before I managed to claw my way back in, and it could have gone either way at the end. The second set was equally attritional with some lengthy rallies, and I felt fortunate to get a decisive break late on. Looking forward to our next match!"  -- Timothy
Reveal CommentMarcos Fernandez bt Luke Abnett (Apr 9) 6-2, 4-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Nice to meet and play Luke for the first time! Blustry conditions made it hard to find much of a rhythm on Saturday but nonetheless this was competitive match and closely fought throughout. Luke's sliced backhand to my back hand corner caused me problems throughout but more consistent serving in the final set allowed me to see out this match. Look forward to our next match. "  -- Marcos

Reveal CommentMarcos Fernandez bt Timothy Jones (Mar 30) 6-7 (3-7), 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "With a pattern of losing the first set against Tim I aimed to start more brightly today. 5-2 up and my plan seemed to be working well fast forward 30mins & Tim has 4 set points in the tie-break after a bit of a collapse in my game. Tim I feel played more aggressively today & really went for his forehand many times clocking up countless winners in that first set comeback. The second set followed the same pattern as the first to begin with and I found myself 5-2 up and serving for the set, surely lightning doesn't, Tim comes back after breaking me & holds to take it to 5-4 but i nervously held serve to level the match. More confident serving from me in the final set made the difference for a rare win against the champ!!"  -- Marcos

  • "Fun match and lots of spectacular shots and rallies. It was hard to get into a rhythm against Ed but I was able to remain consistant and prevail despite the good challenge and Ed's Jim Courier-like backhand! We played a 21 point tie breaker to finish and Ed was able to gain some revenge in the end..."  -- David

  • "The match of the momemtums. Timothy was a bit rusty and needed some time to get into the match butnimproved a lot by the end of the first set. I was glad to bring thr firsr set home but thereagter couldnt keep my game up. Timothy stroke back and won the second set in a record time. The first two games in the third set were very even and luckily managed to win them. Timothy had a little come back at the end of the set but I managed to keep my service game. Great game, cool guy!

Reveal CommentMarcos Fernandez bt Tom Harvey (Mar 21) 7-5, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Always tough against Tom as we are quite evenly matched and having lost our last two encounters I didn't want it to be 3 defeats in a row! I started well and went 3 nil up in the first set but then after a few very long games that Tom edged out we were back at 3-3. I failed to serve out the set twice after which left us level at 5-5. Tom had some issues with his serve which in the end allowed me to break and hold to take a tight first set fully of great shots and rallies. Second set I raced into a 4 nil lead and despite a mini fight back from Tom to 4-2, I was able to see the set out and win 6-2. Always fun, good quality games between us!"  -- Marcos

Reveal CommentJulian Leichtmann bt Luke Abnett (Mar 18) 7-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Luke started pretty well and was 4:1 up within minutes. I managed to come back and took the 5:4 lead. Thereafter it was head to head until the tie break which I managed to win. In the second set I played more consistent and could reduce the unforced errors. Also the weather changed to the negative with quite some heavy winds and snow fall. All in all a good hit and some decent rallies. Thanks Luke for this sibirian tennis experience;)"  -- Julian
Reveal CommentTom Harvey bt Edward Hamill (Mar 15) 7-6 (7-4), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "The first set was very close, which I was lucky to scrape through. Ed played some fantastic net points, with some adept volleying. Very impressed to see him also play a number of points serve and volley. The second set I seemed to perfect hitting the net cord, which I would like to apologise for again! Another close set on the whole, although not fairly reflected in the score. "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentMarcos Fernandez bt Edward Hamill (Mar 14) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Nice to meet and play Ed for the first time and to not play in sub zero temperatures, practically tropical in 8 degree heat last night! Ed doesn't miss much so I had to go and win the points and match his consistency. Just one break early on in the first set was enough although most games went to deuce, I had to battle to hold my serve throughout. The second set was similar, I broke early on to go ahead and was able to maintain this lead to serve it out in the end. Welcome to Group 1 Ed!"  -- Marcos

Had Will's serve been a bit more consistent he would definitely have won the match. I was very lucky to win the second set. Thanks for a great match Will. Look forward to playing you again sometime."  -- James

Player Comments:

  • "After The Beast From the East delayed the start of this round ... this division kicked off with a marathon two-and-a-half hour battle between myself and Mark – alongside numerous deuce games on both serves, it was sometimes a struggle to deal with Mark's slice 'n' dice technique, and his tenacity, but somehow I prevailed; winning the match on a tie-break in a contest that could easily have gone either way."  -- Christopher

Player Comments:

  • "Orlando was struggling with his serve, and I think the frustration spilled over to affect some other points, with several shots drifting long. I definitely got lucky as it was clear there is a better player in him than came out in our match. The fast out wide serves and passing shots will cause most people problems. I'm sure the rematch will have a closer scoreline! "  -- Mike
Reveal CommentMike Begent bt John Barton (Apr 15) 7-5, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A good run around on a Sunday morning! This got quite tiring, a full 2 hours for two sets tells the story of long games and plenty of deuces! John's shoulder injury gave me an unfortunate advantage, but it was still a fun, competitive match. Taking match point with an ace is always satisfying! "  -- Mike
Reveal CommentJulius Sukarevicius bt Elinor Wakefield (Apr 14) 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "An extremely close match that was played over 2 days a week apart (and almost needed a third day for the tiebreak!). Elinor played very consistently making few unforced errors and hitting some painfully low backhand slices that I had to chase across the court. My first serve faltered and I wasn't confident at the net. Nonetheless, somehow I managed to take the second set. The third one was closely fought under intense sun that made it really difficult to follow the ball on the court! I took a decent lead in the tiebreak with 6:2 ahead, but Elinor kept on fighting and almost turned it around. Good match! "  -- Julius
Reveal CommentAdam Love bt Mike Begent (Apr 13) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Mike and I played Larkhall Park court that was slipperier than a used car salesman, whose been doused in baby oil. This meant the game favoured percentage tennis rather than screaming winners. Mike's serve seems to have gained extra whip and movement which took me a while to get used to. Yet, thankfully, his off-forehand seem to be set to hit long that evening, which was a real let off. Slices and hitting back against the grain were the order of the day, which is my speciality. In the end I prevailed 6-2 6-2 but it felt a lot closer. Looking forward to next time."  -- Adam
Reveal CommentAdam Love bt Julius Sukarevicius (Apr 13) 4-6, 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A match that was competitive and compelling. Julius found his range quickly, taking a 3-1 lead playing aggressive, positive tennis. I reduced the unforced, but Julius was stepping-in and hitting the lines to take the set. He relaxed too much in the 2nd set and I was able to string some quickfire games together. I was riding my luck, with multiple net tips going my way, including one that bounced twice on top of the net. That said, closing down the space was working well and saw me take the 2nd set 6-1. I thought my luck was in as the 3rd began with me 40-0 up in the 1st game. But Julius fought back with 5 unanswered points and some unfaltering hitting and then took a 2-0 lead. I levelled at 2-2, held some key breaks and saw out the win."  -- Adam

  • "Elinor took a strong lead in the first set, but we ended up in a tie break somehow, which i managed to win. Then in the second i found some form with my forehand to win. Two very different sets, but a really enjoyable match, as ever, with Elinor. "  -- Mike

Reveal CommentMike Begent bt Henry Beasley (Apr 7) 3-6, 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A fun, close match, Henry played a good consistent quality, although his serve let him down at times. I was almost the opposite, inconsistent but for once my serve was working. After Henry convincingly took the first set, the turning point seemed to come in the second set after a long run around point seeing both players scramble to all corners of the court! After this the sun came out and I managed to concentrate through the third to see the match out. Looking forward to our next re-match! "  -- Mike
Reveal CommentAdam Love bt John Barton (Apr 6) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A pleasant match on what felt like the first dry day of the year. We traded breaks in the opening games, and despite a rusty start, I found some rhythm to take the first set. At the start of the second we both held serve, after at least seven deuce points in one game. My serve had found some pace by this point and we whipped through the middle part of the second. Then on the verge of victory, I lost concentration, and from match point at 5-1, it was 5-3 and John sniffed a comeback after a delicious lob to take the game. I had to knuckle down again to see out the set."  -- Adam

Player Comments:

  • "A relatively unusual match - quite slow overall, but lots of angle shots and drop shots. I was struggling at hitting winners on short balls and hence decided to go for consistency and wait for unforced errors from Helen - noooot the greatest plan...Helen served well for the most part and managed to hit a lot of great shots that touched the lines. Good fun"  -- Julius

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable and competitive match on an early Sunday morning in beautiful Burgess Park courts. Quite happy with the result as we had a lot of deuce points and a lot of close ones where it could have went either way. Fewer mistakes serving from my side and keeping my cool during deuce points helped to secure a win. Thanks Orlando for a great match!"  -- Julius

Player Comments:

  • "Helen and I should win a commitment prize for playing a match in the cold, dark, drizzle of south London. It was very slippery and rained persistently. Probably my extra movement helped in the match with the court not offering a lot. Helen had a consistent serve and played for the lines, and on another fay the score could have been much closer."  -- Adam
Reveal CommentJulius Sukarevicius bt Mike Begent (Mar 13) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "It wasn't a particularly pretty match with both sides making quite a lot of unforced errors and not playing their best tennis. Especially Mike was struggling at getting into a rhythm with some easy opportunities missed at the net and faltering serves. If it weren't for several of those mistakes, the match could have easily went the other way round. I am pretty sure that during the next match against Mike, I will be in much more trouble!"  -- Julius
Reveal CommentAdam Love bt Orlando Gili (Mar 7) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A much more competitive and enjoyable game than the score line suggested. It was probably a good time to play Orlando, and I think by the end of the league he’ll be a real threat. He’s got great power and speed but struggled at times to control it. As the match wore on we had some great rallies, with my more conservative, if dull, approach winning out."  -- Adam
