Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, 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!)
  • 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 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.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Collapse AllKingston Parks Singles - Round 6 | Thursday 19 September 2019 to Wednesday 13 November 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 16 October 2019)

And that's Kingston Parks tennis done and dusted for the year. Thank you to everyone who has taken part and helped support a brand of tennis that is giving more and more people the opportunity to play friendly, competitve tennis. The next round starts in January so until then, enjoy the holidays and have a great, tennis-filled New Year!

Group Summary:

Jimmy has been a winner in Elmbridge but this was his first Kingston Parks round so many congratulations to him on coming out top dog on his first attempt! It was a great run of victories, unbroken through seven matches and Jimmy added bonus points to his tally. But Siddhartha wasn't going to surrender his group title without a battle and five wins of his own at least earns him a solid silver.

Group Summary:

Philip nailed the group win with nearly twice as many points as runner-up Graham (who should nevertheless be well pleased with his return to the league). This was Philip's first time in the league which makes his win doubly memorable - the first of how many group wins we wonder? Well done to everyone who got on court and contributed to the matchplay this time.
