This was a really competitive round with a high standard of tennis being played. It was a good turnout considering it was the inaugural round, I'm looking forward to getting the next round underway!

Chris Jeppesen

"Has been 15 years and a total hip replacement since I have taken to the tennis courts so really enjoyed it! Surprised, but happy to come out on top!"

First competitive tennis I'd ever played, really enjoyed it. Had to dig deep in some games and was surprised to come out on top. All the other players were super friendly and I'll probably be meeting some of them for an informal game in the near future. Thanks.

Jamie Barrs

"​This league is a fantastic initiative and I'm delighted I've found it and can continue to be part of it. Having lived in other parts of the UK, getting access to tennis like this is not something I've experienced anywhere else across the country, given typically you need to join a club, play doubles and it's all very regimented - and often too it can be expensive which inhibits access for many. I'll continue to play for hopefully many years to come!",

Another bumper round in Ladywell Fields as we welcomed 15 new players to the league and had 9 busy groups! Well done for getting your matches played in some inclement weather conditions and in fact just over three quarters of all possible matches were played which is a great effort. Lucky we got this round completed before lockdown and we look forward to getting going again soon!

Group Summary:

This was a well contested group with the majority of matches played and midway bonus points earned... and congratulations to Joe for a successful defence of his crown! Joe's 7 wins meant he finished the round undefeated and was 2 points clear of runner up Julian Leichtmann. There were several close 3 setters in this group including the 'battle of the Julians' won by Julian Leichtmann and Joe's win against Michael with an epic second set tiebreak!

Player Comments:

  • "Lady luck was definitely on my side in this match. Julian was definitely the better player in the 1st and should have won it 6-3. The sun was coming and going all match and unfortunately for Julian it was in his face at the beginning of the tiebreak. I was further helped by a net cord that trickled over to go 4-0 up. The 2nd set was closer with me getting an early lead before Julian fighting back. I had a chance to serve it out but didn't manage but managed to break to win. Was an enjoyable match with some good rallies. Look forward to playing again post lockdown, hopefully with less scrambling on my part. "  -- Michael

It should probably of gone to 3 sets as Julian was clear in the 2nd set tie break but I was let back in it managed to finish it off.

I had an easy volley for a match point but missed it as I must have been thinking about a pint in the club house. Before you know if i'm serving to stay in the match at 5-6. Breaker Gods were shining on me as I had a net chord go my way and Joe just missed a slice that would have been a clean winner, so instead of being 4-2 down at changeover I was up by this score. Just about managed to creep over the line here but Joe played the more aggressive and positive tennis and deserved to have the win not me "  -- Julian

Joe and I have played at least a couple of times before, with honours roughly even I think. Today there were probably a couple of pivotal moments in each set that could have led to a closer score, but overall, I guess I won this one due to a greater level of consistency and too many unforced errors from Joe. As always though, this was a fun match, featuring some great topspin forehands from Joe and some brilliant topsy-turvy rallies. "  -- Raf

I fought for everything, and thankfully for me some unforced errors crept into his game. I still have no idea how I won the first set 6-2, when so many of the points were so close and hotly contested. Stephen again raced to a 2-0 lead in set 2. I fought back hard taking it to 4-2 to me, with a great chance for 5-2. However, Stephen fought back brilliantly to take it to 5-4 to him, and then 6-5, before I brought it to a TB. He started well but I managed to recover to 5-5, before I limped over the line. This was an extremely tough and physical contest."  -- Raf

That said, Paul had almost total control of our last match, and on the back of a difficult match against Carsten yesterday, I must admit that I was fearing the worst to some extent. Thankfully, I was much more prepared for today's match than yesterday's, and I had a clear gameplan based on my shortcomings in our last match. Overall, I guess I won because I was more consistent and Paul seemed to hold back on his shots a little. That said, it was tighter than the score suggests, in the second set at least, and when Paul came back from 4-1 down to 4-3, there were a couple of points that could really have changed the course of the match. This was a fun match in the very hot sun (on one side)."  -- Raf

  • "What an amazing game of high quality tennis, long base lines rallies with heavy hitting on both the forehand and backhand side. Tom took the first set playing very controlled tennis hitting some great shots, I managed to take the second managing to up my game, but from 5-2 down Tom pushed me right to the end. In the third set I got off to a good start again going 5-2 up, but Tom's resilience and great play especially on the backhand side helped him to come back and go 6-5 in front. Luckily i managed to pull it back to 6-6 and then held my nerve take the tie breaker. We both deserved to win the match but unfortunately that can't happen, look forward to when we play again."  -- Asad

You earn one point for every set you win. Players who complete three or more matches by the mid-point of the round receive 2 bonus points, and a bonus prize (typically a free can of HEAD tennis balls). Bonus prizes must be claimed within 28 days using the link posted to the player's Account page. The link is also emailed to players.

Please note, while matches tied at one set all may be completed with a matchtiebreak, singles matches completed to this shortened format, do not count toward bonus points.

Understanding the current rankings display: 
Player name, [LTA rating - if known], W - tally of wins, L - tally of  losses, UF - tally of unfinished matches] 'n' - points won (if bonus points have been won a  note to this effect is added)
