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 AllRedbridge Singles - Round 38 | Thursday 17 January 2019 to Wednesday 13 March 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 13 February 2019)

Well done to everyone who played in this round at Redbridge - lots of matches played and some high quality tennis all round with a lot of evenly contested matches. The inevitable British weather played its part with a few windy days making rallies more challenging but everyone battled on throughout. LTL players have stamina and perseverance! We look forward to seeing you all again in the next round for more competitive but friendly matches.

Group Summary:

Well done to Jack for an impressive start to the year with 6 wins, improving on his runner-up last round to storm to first place this time with an impressive 14 points taking him clear at the top! Tauseef takes the runner-up spot with an equally impressive 4 wins in a tightly fought group. Some great match commentaries show that, although competitive, this is still a really friendly league and particular mention must go to Naved for compassionately agreeing to postpone a match at short notice due to illness!

Final Rankings:

  1. Jack Krawczyk 8.1 [W6] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Tauseef Khan 10.1 [W4, L1] 8 RUNNER UP

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentTauseef Khan bt Naved Hayat (Mar 2) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "First of all, a big thank you Naved for postponing the match from last week to this week due to me being ill. It was very kind of him given the last minute cancellation. It was our second meeting today and the first set was a back and forth affair with breaks traded. Naved's hit some very nice one handed backhand passing shots and winners. Coming to the net wasn't as easy for me because of them. The weather was very nice to play in with the wind giving us a few problems when serving and in mid-rallies. It was really enjoyable playing Naved and I hope to play him many more times."  -- Tauseef
Reveal CommentTauseef Khan bt Taha Mangrio (Feb 16) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "It was a pleasure playing Taha. Had some banter going through the match. An unusually high amount of net cords during the rallies. Overall a fun match with the rallies contested on the baseline as well as at the net. Looking forward to many more battles with Taha the future."  -- Tauseef
