The league is:

  • For everybody!

  • The winner of the group wins a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Fantastic to see this league grow to four groups in 2017, we hope you enjoyed yourselves. There were some closely contested groups with both new and returning players putting in some impressive performances. Thanks for all your efforts and we hope to see you back next time for more tennis in the longer days and warmer weather!

Group Summary:

This group was nip and tuck all the way with Tanmay and Angel matching each other step for step to finish level on ten points at the top of the table. The two's head to head therefore comes into play and unfortunately this was decided by an injury. Angel was up a set before he twisted his ankle and had to retire meaning Tanmay takes the prize. A shout out to Bjorn who was involved in what seemed to be every exhausting encounter of the round - a great effort!

Final Rankings:

  1. Tanmay Chetan 9.1 [W4, L1] 10 includes 2 bonus points WINNER

Group Summary:

Tom returned to group winning ways with four wins from four seeing him cross the line first, however this was far from easy. All four of Tom's victories were hard fought encounters and required Tom to find his best tennis on the big points to get past the challenge put up by his opponents, Antonin, Luis, Felix and Nick, and also the wind in a couple of cases. Luis finishes only one point behind Tom as he is rewarded for playing the most matches in combination with some strong tennis.

  1. Tom Leonard 9.2 [W4] 8 WINNER
  2. Luis Ruibal [W3, L2] 7 RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

A photo finish was needed to determine the champion of this group as Pip and Emma finished level on points at the summit. The two's head to head was as close as it comes with an hour and a half required to complete just the first set, and ultimately only a point here and there made the difference. Pip managed to win these and subsequently takes the title but hats off to you both for great rounds. Round of applause to Pablo who alongside Emma played all of his matches and earned bonus points.

  1. Pip Symington [W4] 10 includes 2 bonus points WINNER

Group Summary:

Adam and Catherine both notched up a number of victories to put space between themselves and the rest of the group . Adam produced a powerful display of tennis throughout the round and this was also too much for Catherine to handle as he finishes unbeaten to take the gold on his debut. Will anyone be able to defeat Adam next time?
