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 AllShrewsbury Singles - Round 8 | Thursday 25 April 2019 to Wednesday 19 June 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 22 May 2019)

A much smaller group this time with just 5 players signed up, but 90% of matches (all but one!) played shows that everyone is still keen to play lots of tennis, and we did welcome two newcomers this round too!

Group Summary:

Good to see some familiar faces playing again at Shrewsbury. Congratulations to Peter, who stormed to victory, winning all his matches. Jack had to settle for runner-up position after a sensational round last time as winner, although it looks like Peter had a real fight with him in their head-to-head taking it to 3 close sets. Great to see so many matches played and in good spirits; it's still a relatively new league so keep up the good work everyone and spread the word!

Final Rankings:

  1. Peter Simon 8.1 [W4] 8 WINNER
  2. Jack Edward 8.1 [W3, L1] 7 RUNNER UP
  3. David Gibbons [W1, L3] 4 includes 2 bonus points
  4. John Brownlie [W1, L2] 2
  5. David Fletcher [L3] 2 includes 2 bonus points
