Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, 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!)
  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • 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 available on 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 AllWandsworth All Star Doubles - Round 15 | Thursday 19 September 2019 to Wednesday 27 November 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 23 October 2019)

Some great matches here and even if it was not a super-busy round, some very good tennis was played. Hopefully, the rain will ease off for the next one in 2020!

Group Summary:

Judging by the results, it took Don & Jenny and Charlotte and Anthony a little while to work out how to play James and Cosmo but both couples came back strongly in the second set to finish 7-5. Or maybe the form of James and Cosmo dipped a bit. Either way, they held on and won all three of their matches and with it the group. Congratulations to them and to runners up Don and Jenny. A shame Joe and Rob didn't get going. Hope you can another time!

Group Summary:

This group was on the quiet side but it does seem to have been the rainy season! The top two pairs both played three matches, which is not bad as one team withdrew. Jill and Darelle win, finishing just two points ahead of runners up Jennifer and Beth, and fittingly had a close three setter themselves. Well played to both teams.
