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.

Top marks to everyone in this group for playing all their matches and the winner and runner up also bagged midway bonus points for match scheduling. Thanks for leaving some descriptive and interesting commentaries too and it was great to welcome 2 new players to Spelthorne Tennis League this round. Keep up the good work next time!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Sohail for climbing 3 places from the last round to finish top of the group this time, earning his spot with 4 straight set wins. League debutant Harvey was runner up with 3 wins including a most unusual match against Loris which saw the pair exchange bagels (6-0 sets) before battling it out to 7-5 in the third! Loris held his nerve in the second set against Sarah to earn a 2 set win, while Sarah had an impressive win of her own against Joe, prevailing in an "especially tense 2nd set that could have gone either way!"

Final Rankings:

  1. Sohail Butt [W4] 10 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Harvey Moyne [W3, L1] 8 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Loris Boillet [W2, L2] 5
  4. Sarah Hodgen [W1, L3] 2
  5. Joe Mccarron 10.2 [L4]

Reveal CommentHarvey Moyne bt Loris Boillet (Nov 25) 0-6, 6-0, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "What a strange and enjoyable game! Loris was too consistent, particularly on the lob, in the 1st set for Harvey, who couldn't hit a barn door with a banjo - first set down in 15 minutes. Harvey found some inspiration from a toilet break and the removal of some layers. Combined with the effects of a shoulder injury loosening up, helped him take the 2nd set in.... 15 minutes! After the reciprocated whitewashes, the 3rd set was a different affair altogether... Loris gained a 3-0 lead on serve, which Harvey dragged back to 3-3 with 2 good service games of his own. Breaks were traded as the light faded, and Loris was unlucky to be facing serve in the gloom as Harvey held to win a fantastic match. Well played Loris, in a rare type of match!"  -- Harvey
