This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a singles league just for women
  • Groups are put together by standard
  • 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 all women 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.

Collapse AllKennington & Brockwell Parks Women's Singles - Round 1 | Thursday 24 September 2020 to Wednesday 4 November 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 21 October 2020)

It was great to get the first round underway in Kennington and Brockwell Parks Women's league but such a shame it had to end two weeks early due to lockdown! We're glad you enjoyed the matches you were able to play though and we look forward to getting going again soon!

Group Summary:

Sadly only 5 matches had been completed before we had to end the round early for lockdown so we'll never know how these would have unfolded... but Natasha' early start paid dividends as she won 2 matches and earned midway bonus points to secure the title. Coral also won 2 matches including her head to head with Natasha thanks to some "great rallies".

Final Rankings:

  1. Natasha Dyer [W2, L1] 6 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Coral Hall-Casserly [W2] 4 RUNNER UP
  3. Rebecca Joe 9.1 [W1] 2
  4. Katie Barber [L1]
  5. Natalie Rehling [L1]
  6. Sophie Carter [L2]
  7. Helena Maxwell
  8. Nikolina Zrinski
  9. Sophie Gaze
