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 AllLeamington & Warwick Singles - Round 18 | Thursday 20 February 2020 to Wednesday 15 April 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 18 March 2020)

Group Summary:

Sometimes one player in a group makes all the running and they almost invariably win the group. So it was here. There were just 3 matches played, all involving Martin, and he won them all. He even got his bonus points and moves from runner up last time to group champ this time. Well played.

Final Rankings:

  1. Martin Durrant [W3] 8 includes 2 bonus points
  2. Alex Mott [L1]
  3. Tom Courtenay-Evans [L1]
  4. Harpal Singh [L1]
  5. Matthew Pickering 8.1

Player Comments:

  • "Competitive first set. No so much in the second. Great fun though. And (getting) warm!"  -- Martin
Reveal CommentMartin Durrant bt Harpal Singh (Mar 6) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Fortunately for me, Harpal started slowly and the first set was reasonably comfortable. Different story in the second set which was very closely contested and only a couple of decisive points made the difference. Fully expected a 3rd set and a late night!"  -- Martin

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentMartin Durrant bt Tom Courtenay-Evans (Mar 3) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "The fourth match in our series and it is now 2 games all. this was the first time that the match has been settled in straight sets but it was still nip-and-tuck all the way. It's always a pleasure playing Tom - win or lose."  -- Martin

Group Summary:

As this was a small group to start with, a high percentage of possible matches were played, and well done to Martin G who played all of them! Thanks for the great match commentaries and congratulations to Martin Q who tops the group. He tied on points with Darin but lost fewer sets per matches played, so takes gold this time!

Final Rankings:

  1. Martin Quadroy [W2] 4
  2. Darin Crosby 9.1 [W2] 4
  3. Martin Gray 9.2 [L3] 3 includes 2 bonus points

Player Comments:

  • "Another great game with Martin G. this morning at Warwick Tennis Club. The weather was kind to us, no rain and only a few mild gusts, which probably played into my hands more than Martin G. today. I had a good run of service games and managed to break Martin G. at crucial points, though Martin G. pulled off some wonderful cross-court returns which kept me honest and pushing hard to the end. Just my day today. Many thanks again to Martin G. for a wonderful morning of tennis."  -- Martin

Player Comments:

  • "A windy afternoon for some tennis but it is always nice to meet Martin, a true tennis gentleman. The score does not show how better Martin is compared to the last time we played. Great cross forehands and backhands, especially on big serves. Double faults helped me quite a lot."  -- Luca

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentMartin Quadroy bt Luca Martinengo (Feb 23) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Many thanks to Luca for a great game over the weekend. The match was a hard fought tussle and could have gone either way. With the weather the way it was, we opted to play on an all-weather court later in the day, and we did our best battling the wind gusts and glare. Both of us went through periods of double-faulting and not being able to see the ball, but it didn’t stop us giving our best and going for our shots when we could. The first set was a real topsy-turvy affair with the lead changing several times. The second was very much like the first, with perhaps the only difference being that I managed to hold serve for consecutive games towards the later part of the set. Thanks again to Luca for a great game and on to next one."  -- Martin
