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 AllSutton Coldfield Singles - Round 5 | Thursday 20 September 2018 to Wednesday 14 November 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 17 October 2018)

It was great to have 9 players in this round of Sutton Coldfield Tennis League which meant lots of tennis for everyone! It was finely poised at the top of the group and again we saw the benefits of early match scheduling with the bonus points helping 3 of you. It was great to welcome 5 new players to the league including our eventual group winner,as well as some returning leaguers. Well played and we hope to see you back in the next round!

Group Summary:

It was a successful league debut for Joshua who won the group at the first attempt by the narrowest of margins over runner up David. Both won 5 matches and lost one but Joshua's scheduling skills in earning the midway bonus points proved decisive and took him one point clear at the top. David won their head to head though but "had to work very hard for it", as he did in his 2-set win over Nadeem as well. Nadeem lost 2 close 3-set matches against Stephen and Jahual but did well to play 7 matches. It was a strong round for Steve too finishing in third place with the pick of his wins being a close 3-setter against runner up David.

Final Rankings:

  1. Joshua Reece [W5, L1] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. David Brown [W5, L1] 11 RUNNER UP
  3. Steve Gedeon [W3, L1] 9 includes 2 bonus points
  4. Muhammad Nadeem 10.2 [W1, L6] 6 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Stephen Roberson [W2, L1] 4
  6. Shaun Graham [W2, L3] 4
  7. Jahual Haq [W1, L2] 3
