  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • 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

  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

Collapse AllRedbridge Singles - Round 30 | Thursday 13 April 2017 to Wednesday 7 June 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 10 May 2017)

Thanks to everyone who took part in the 30th round in Redbridge. There was a good competitive spirit on display and this resulted in some tight tussles for the top spots. Congratulations to the new group champions and we hope to see you next time for many more matches throughout the summer.

Group Summary:

"The sun was shining" on Zafar throughout the round as he finished three wins to the good to move to the front. Ivan and Nagendra kept the pressure on Zafar, adding bonus points to their two victories to tie on six points. But ultimately, Zafar had too much for Ivan and Nagendra, prevailing from their head to heads to take his second title on the bounce. Ivan takes second thanks to his straight sets victory over Nagendra.

Final Rankings:

  1. Zafar Iqbal 7.2 [W3] 6 WINNER
  2. Ivan Georgiev 8.1 [W2, L1] 6 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

No player was able to take control of a competitive group three, with only one point separating positions one to four. Sajeev and Felipe finish on seven points to put themselves in the hunt for the gold. As is always the case in this situation, the match between the two comes into play and Sajeev "snatched the game" 7-5 in the third to take the crown. Now Stuart finished unbeaten and defeated the top two, so what might have happened had he played just one more match? Maybe we will find out next time.

Final Rankings:

  1. Sajeev Nair 9.2 [W2, L2] 7 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Felipe Kwast Martins [W3, L2] 7 RUNNER UP
