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.

Collapse AllSwindon Singles - Round 25 | Thursday 11 October 2018 to Wednesday 5 December 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 7 November 2018)

A fantastic round in Swindon where despite the colder weather and shorter days more than 85% of matches were played - lets keep this great work up going into 2019! Well done to the new group champions who overcame some close competition to secure their crowns and thanks to you all for your efforts both on and off court. Here's to more of the same when the league returns after the Christmas break!

Group Summary:

Lots of action in group one with nearly every match played and the majority of bonus prizes earned too - great stuff. Gianni picks up from where he left off in the last round, producing another unbeaten display to extend his winning streak to 13 matches and take his second group crown on the bounce. Karl had Gianni running "all over the court" in "40-50" shot rallies, and he carried on this good form throughout the round to win the six other matches he played to become the runner up.

Final Rankings:

  1. Gianni Gray 7.2 [W7] 16 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Karl Sloman 7.1 [W6, L1] 14 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Nicholas Newton [W5, L2] 12 includes 2 bonus points
  4. Stefano Pigliapoco 8.2 [W3, L3] 8 includes 2 bonus points

Reveal CommentKarl Sloman bt Paul Miller (Nov 23) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "We had a closely fought battle on this cold evening. We both started in the same fashion by none of us holding serve until the 4th game at which point I held. Paul the held and then I found my rhythm and took the first set. The 2nd set started off on a very even keel with both of us holding serve until 3-3, then at 15-30 down on Paul's serve I sent the ball back behind him and Paul had a very dramatic slip on the court which left him with a few nasty scrapes and half a pint of blood on the court. This didn't deter him, and although I took that game to lead 4-3 and then held to make it 5-3, Paul found his mojo and took the next two games to level it at 5-5. I then managed to break to take it to 6-5 and then hold to win. A great game. "  -- Karl
Reveal CommentKarl Sloman bt Stefano Pigliapoco (Nov 19) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Stefano put on a great defense. He made it very tough to break through so to get any advantage I had to put all my focus in to getting the angles and pushing him to the edges of the court. We had some long rallies and a fair number of deuces. A good match. "  -- Karl
Stefano Pigliapoco bt Iryada Ashmore (Nov 17) 6-0, 6-1
Reveal CommentGianni Gray bt Karl Sloman (Nov 17) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Very competitive and hard fought match. Karl took the first game, I managed to get the next 3, Karl got the next one to make it 3-2, after that I somehow won the next 3 to take the first set. Every game except 1 went to deuce and every point had at least 15-20 shot rallies. We were never going to maintain the intensity in the 2nd set, and I think my fitness probably saw me through another tough set. I took the first 3 games, then Karl got it back to 5-3, before I managed to finish the set 6-3. The last point probably summed up our match, we had each other all over the court, jelly legs for both of us, and at least a 40-50 shot rally. Great match Karl, look forward to playing again, after I've recovered."  -- Gianni
Paul Miller bt Carlo Lorusso (Nov 15) 6-0, 6-0
Reveal CommentGianni Gray bt Paul Miller (Nov 14) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "The first set was very tight actually. Of the 6 games we had 5 games go to deuce and I was down 15-40 on 2 of them and 0-40 on another. It felt as though most points were closely contested with some good rallies. Paul was trying to force the play a bit more and it was working a lot of the time. It just seemed on the real crucial points, I managed to hang on. Paul kept the pressure on in the second set by taking an early lead, but I started to serve a bit more consistently and took some easy games when serving. Having said that we had some great rallies, with both of us hitting the ball with pace. Thanks again for the game."  -- Gianni

Group Summary:

Ricardo raced to six superb wins to storm to the front of the pack and give himself a superb chance of the prize. Tom matched Ricardo's wins tally to finish level on points at the top and make it a two horse race for the title. It therefore all comes down to their head to head and Ricardo proved too strong for Tom in this encounter, clinching a convincing victory to become the new champ on his debut. A special mention to Nigel who managed to get on court for every match and take home a bonus prize.

I had no answer to his excellent tennis, and although managing to get the scoreline slightly respectable, he won the first set comfortably. The second set was completely different. Tony went off the boil and I started to get the 1st serve working. Then the final set was nip and tuck. I was 3-2 up but the game was going to deuce before I managed to clinch a couple of points and take it to 4-2 and then serve out for the set. A really enjoyable match. Look forward to the next one Tony."  -- Nigel

Group Summary:

A very exciting race for the finish line in group three, with Patrick, Joseph, Andrew and Sarah all tying on twelve points at the top. Now Patrick battled to victories over all of his title rivals to narrowly cross the line in first. Head to heads are unable to separate the remaining three so we need to do some number crunching to determine the runner up....and thanks to fewest games conceded on average the silver goes to Joseph. Well played everyone and thanks for all your efforts to play so many matches.

I won the second set easily(6:3) only dropping one game in the next 5. I continued to play better outside and was 4:0 up in the third before Sarah started to adapt, but was too late I think and I just about managed to get over the finishing line (6:4).
