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 10 | Thursday 16 July 2020 to Wednesday 9 September 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 12 August 2020)

It was great to see friendly, competitive tennis return to the courts of Sutton Coldfield Tennis League and to welcome 2 new players to the fold. Collectively you managed to play four fifths of all possible matches which is a great effort and there were lots of close and exciting scorelines too. Thanks for dusting off your rackets and supporting your local league and we hope to see you back in the next round!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to David for winning the group title in fine style, winning all 6 matches to build a 2 point lead over runner up Muhammad. Fittingly their head to head was a "really tough match" with David saving 3 match points in the second set to turn it around and take the win in 3 sets. Third placed Ryan also made David work hard as "every rally was a marathon" but David held on to stave off a third set. Meanwhile Muhammad had a close 3 set win of his own against Shaun, a match that went all the way to a third set tiebreak.

Final Rankings:

  1. David Brown [W6] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Muhammad Nadeem 10.2 [W4, L2] 12 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
