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 AllReigate & Redhill Singles - Round 1 | Thursday 28 June 2018 to Wednesday 22 August 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 25 July 2018)

A very warm welcome to the first round of this new league. And well done everyone for playing an incredibly high proportion of games with most of you also getting bonus points. What a round it turned out to be with competitive yet friendly encounters throughout. Despite the often sweltering weather, there were many great matches with close sets and long rallies. As well as the heat (Chris versus Sandy in particular) players handled windy conditions (Ben versus Chris) and on one occasion poor light which brought the finely balanced match between Aaron and Julia to a premature end. All in all a round to remember.

Group Summary:

Clear winner of this round is Ben with 12 points very closely followed by runner-up Joe with 10. This looks to have been a very competitive group with everyone getting at least one victory. Only a couple of sets went to 6-0 and one of those was in Sandy's three-setter against Aaron; Sandy dropped the second 0-6 after a winning the first set tie break before coming back to win the final set 6-4. This was one of the two three-setters in the group, the other being Julia against Chris which sounds like a great match with lots of "interesting rallies". Another close match was Sarah against Sandy where there were some long rallies in the tie break second set.

Final Rankings:

  1. Ben Cole 10.2 [W6] 12 WINNER
  2. Joe Hilton [W4, L2] 10 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Chris Tucker [W3, L3] 9 includes 2 bonus points
  4. Julia Postnikova [W3, L2, UF1] 8 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Aaron Nethercott 10.2 [W2, L3, UF1] 6
  6. Sarah Davis [W1, L5] 4 includes 2 bonus points
  7. Sandy Boyer [W1, L5] 4 includes 2 bonus points
