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

  • 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

  • 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 AllLeamington & Warwick Singles - Round 20 | Thursday 17 September 2020 to Wednesday 4 November 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 14 October 2020)

A shame we had to end the round early because of the new lockdown but not before lots of matches were played! We welcomed a couple of new players to the league and there was plenty of on court action across the 3 groups. Great effort and we look forward to getting going again soon!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Nav for a successful defence of his title, winning 3 matches and earning midway bonus points to finish 2 points clear of runner up Enrique. Nav was taken to 3 sets by David in a "game of two halves" with Nav having to "refocus and dig deep" to win the third set, and David also proved a "really tough opponent" against Enrique.

Final Rankings:

  1. Nav Aulkh [W3] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Enrique Suarez [W3] 6 RUNNER UP
  3. David Morey [L2] 1

Reveal CommentEnrique Suarez bt Luca Martinengo (Oct 16) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Brilliant match! Luca is a really tough oponent, hence most of the games went up to deuce many times. The court was a little bit wet due to a short rain, however, the superb condition of Victoria Park new courts made the game flawless. I really enjoyed playing against Luca and am looking forward to our next match."  -- Enrique
Reveal CommentNav Aulkh bt Luca Martinengo (Oct 7) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "My first time playing Luca. Enjoyable match, lots of rallies. Luca has a great forehand that is able to find tight cross courts angles. Unfortunately the rain started 10 mins into the match, but we saw it through. Well played Luca, looking forward to playing in dryer condition on out next encounter. "  -- Nav
Reveal CommentEnrique Suarez bt Alex Mott (Sep 28) 6-1, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Playing at the Warwick Boat Club is magnificent, the view of the castle and the river while playing is stunning. The match was quite interesting, different bounce here than when playing on hard courts makes for speedier balls and shorter rallies. Alex is brilliant, I had to remain beware of his forehand down the line all the time, really looking forward to play against him again."  -- Enrique
Reveal CommentNav Aulkh bt Alex Mott (Sep 24) 6-2, 6-1

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentNav Aulkh bt David Morey (Sep 21) 6-0, 3-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A game of two halves. David started slow and had issues with his serve in the first set. Second set I relaxed slightly and David was much improved with some brilliant backhands down the line. Third set I had to refocus and dig deep. Always a pleasure playing David and I look forward to our next match"  -- Nav

Group Summary:

This was a closely contested group with Tom and Harpal tied on 10 points apiece from 5 matches played, and their head to head started off close but wasn't completed... so the title was decided by Tom's extra match win. He had a "cracking match" against Callum whose "knifed backhand slices were literally unplayable at times" but Tom managed to edge the win, while Callum had a solid 3 set win against Simon.

Final Rankings:

  1. Tom Courtenay-Evans [W4, UF1] 10 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Harpal Singh [W3, L1, UF1] 10 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Simon Rutter [W2, L3] 7 includes 2 bonus points
  4. Callum Roberts [W2, L1] 5
  5. Darin Crosby 9.1 [L3] 3 includes 2 bonus points

Reveal CommentCallum Roberts bt Harpal Singh (Oct 28) 0-6, 6-1, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "I don't even know where to begin with this one.......one of the most bizarre matches I've ever played! One minute Harpal was unstoppable and I couldn't get anything over, the next it reverses! The slice shots were laid on thick with both of us pulling out some lovely shots, progressively getting lower and lower until one of us inevitably hit the net, interspersed with the occasional lob shot and some pretty funny net rallies. Overall it was a great match and thoroughly enjoyable. Harpal has some fantastic shots and his serve was not only consistent but had some major kick to it! Thanks for a great game, hope to play again soon "  -- Callum
Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt Callum Roberts (Oct 14) 4-6, 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Cracking match with Callum on a cold night under the lights at VP. Callum got off to a flying start to lead 5-1 in the 1st set. His knifed backhand slices were literally unplayable at times barely bouncing at all off the tarmac. I managed to drag out the set and find a bit of form which I took into the second. The third was just as tight as the first two with virtually every game going to several deuces it seemed. Great fun and I look forward to playing again."  -- Tom
Reveal CommentHarpal Singh bt Simon Rutter (Oct 14) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great playing Simon after almost a year. It was a competitive match with many games going multiple deuces. Overall I had the slightly better consistency and come out on top. Looking forward to Simon again "  -- Harpal

  • "Great meeting Juan, we had a nice match with exciting rallies in a chilly evening at VP."  -- Harpal
Reveal CommentSimon Rutter bt Darin Crosby (Oct 11) 6-1, 0-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Great match again with Darin. Super-competitive, with the scores in the first two sets not reflecting the tightness of the match in any way. The final set was very tight, with some long and hard-fought rallies. Really enjoyable."  -- Simon
Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt Juan Brito (Oct 10) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "First time I have played Juan and we had a really enjoyable match. The first set was very tight and I just managed to nick it. I got off to a quick start in the second and managed to stay on top despite some classy baseline hitting from Juan. Great fun, thanks for the game Juan. "  -- Tom

Player Comments:

  • "My first time playing at Warwick tennis club. Weather was great and tennis was fun. Darin played some great shots and some games went to multiple dueces. Overall a really enjoyable afternoon of tennis"  -- Harpal

Group Summary:

This was a fairly quiet group with several matches left unplayed, however Martin's combination of 2 match wins and midway bonus points for scheduling saw him top the table, a single point clear of Rod in runner up spot. Kudos to Rod for beating the champ in an exciting 2 setter with Rod winning on his third match point in a close second set tiebreak.

Player Comments:

  • "Nice to get the full match in before the rain came - although the wind was certainly whistling across the court at some points. Andy is just returning to tennis after a long layoff - but we had an enjoyable morning with plenty of close games - my (inevitable) errors making up for Andy's occasional rustiness. Good luck with your recovery and the rest of your matches, Andy."  -- Martin
Reveal CommentAndy Silver bt Angelika Durrant (Oct 4) 4-0, 4-0

Player Comments:

  • "The weather was not kind to us today, with constant drizzle on top of an already soggy court! Despite this, we still had an enjoyable match with some good rallies and a few deuce games. Good luck Angelika for the rest of the league! "  -- Andy
Reveal CommentMartin Gray bt Angelika Durrant (Sep 25) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A very enjoyable afternoon playing tennis on a lovely sunny but rather windy day. I think the wind helped me more than Angelika so the score was pretty kind to me. Thanks, Angelika, for the game - good luck for the rest of your matches!"  -- Martin

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentRod Bond bt Martin Gray (Sep 22) 6-2, 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "The first set consisted of more deuces than in a bottle of Robinson’s and those on Martin’s serve proved decisive. Martin was rampant at the start of the 2nd set running away with the set at one point to a 5-2 lead. I managed to fight back to 5-5 before being broken again however I broke back to take it to a tie break. In the fading light we agreed to carry on. My serve was becoming difficult to return and I managed to get 3 match points. Martin played some great drop shots throughout the match but eventually succumb to the final one he tried on the 3rd match point. Great match finished in near twilight!"  -- Rod
Angelika Durrant bt Krishan Bhardwaj (Sep 20) Walkover
