Revision information
Provide an explanation of the changes you are making. This will help other authors understand your motivations.

This is how it works

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • 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.
  • Players are grouped by 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 played to short-set format; if a set reaches 4 games all, the next game decides the set. If the match reaches a set all, a matchtiebreak is played (see link on right)
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • Players are grouped according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Everyone in the group plays each other once during the round
  • You get one point for each set you win
  • 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 each group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winners get a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of the groups (and sometimes the top two) are promoted for the next round; those who come bottom (and sometimes the bottom two) are demoted

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.

Collapse AllRegents Park Singles - Round 32 | Thursday 8 December 2016 to Wednesday 15 February 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 11 January 2017)

The winter weather and festive period shrunk this round slightly but there was still lots of closely contested groups and competitive matches. Congratulations to the new group champions and we hope to see you all again in the next round!

Group Summary:

A very competitive group one where anyone seemed to be able to beat anyone on their day. Fortunes seesawed throughout the round but in the end it was Stephen who tops the table, maybe the bronze he earned in the previous round gave him that extra motivation required to get those all important wins. The chasing pack were therefore left to fight it out for second and this was close. Harry recorded one more victory than George but George used his scheduling skills well to earn two bonus points which saw him leapfrog Harry into second.

Final Rankings:

  1. Stephen Jones 6.2 [W3, L3] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. George Henton [W2, L3] 12 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Harry Myrans 10.2 [W3, L1] 11

Player Comments:

  • "A very enjoyable game against George despite the difficult court conditions (quite wet). The game could have easily gone the other way especially since George's serve and forehand started to be extremely efficient from the start of the 2nd set. Looking forward for a rematch on a dry court."  -- Laurent

Group Summary:

Thomas was cruising to the title, that was until his match up with Philipp who proved to be a very tricky customer. A fast start from Philipp put Thomas on the back foot, but as great champions do Thomas showed what he was made of fighting back to force a match tiebreak which he just held his nerve to win 10-7. Great play both! Well done to Paul who also had a successful round winning three matches and earning bonus points to finish one point behind the leader.

Group Summary:

Chris finishes the round with best statistics winning five out five matches but unfortunately for Chris it is the points tally that determines the champion. Mikhail showed he knows how to win a group, once again combining good tennis with excellent scheduling skills to leapfrog Chris into first position - well played both. Thanks to everyone for all the commentaries!

Group Summary:

Only one point separated positions one to three in this group but Martin is the clear winner achieving more victories than anyone else to finish top of the pile. Robin and Jade are tied on eight points with an equal win/loss record so their head to head proves vital. Unsurprisingly, this was a close match with Robin just coming through as the winner after two tight sets.

Group Summary:

There was little to choose between Ashish and Jillian in this round as they tied on points at the top. Their head to head therefore proved crucial and this was a topsy turvy encounter with Jillian getting off to a fast start to take the first set. Unfortunately for Jillian this must have awoken Ashish who bounced back to dominate the second and the subsequent match tiebreak to take the glory.

Player Comments:

  • "On a lovely crisp Sunday afternoon, Steven and Anna came to Regents Park for their respective first games in the new league. Anna, the seasoned veteran, and Steven the league new-comer. The sun was coming out in patches and when it was posing some difficulties to whoever was unlucky enough to be at that side of the court. The match was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests with some great rallying along the way, the majority of games going to deuce multiple times and both players hitting some good winners. In the end it was Steven who managed to take both sets and start the league campaign well. Both players should come with positives. "  -- Steven
