  • 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

Well done for braving the often wintry weather to get so many matches played and we look forward to seeing you back in action before too long!

Player Comments:

  • "A very long, tight match over 2.5 hours - but thoroughly enjoyable! As always playing Keir, there were lots of great rallies and amazing points. We were 4-4 in both sets, when I just got the slightest of fine margins on my side and managed to edge the last two games. It could easily have been the reverse score. "  -- Jon

Group Summary:

It was tight at the top of Group 2 with John and Jon both winning 3 matches and finishing on 9 points, so the title came down to their head to head which John managed to win in 3 sets, "scraping past" Jon in the third set in some "very chilly conditions". Congrats to Jon for winning a "marathon encounter" against Matt though, a match with "really fine margins"... great tennis!

Matthew Evans bt Matt Dawkins (Dec 6) 7-5, 6-1

Group Summary:

Well done to all of you for getting lots of matches played before lockdown, and there were plenty of close scorelines too. Not surprisingly the winning margin was narrow with Greg clinching the title by a single point ahead of Joe. Greg was the only player to go undefeated with 5 match wins, although Peter took the opening set in their match in lashing rain proving again that Local Tennis Leagues players are a hardy bunch!

The first set score does not reflect the competitive play and the late charge by Matt including a 10-deuce service game at 1-4. After that, it was a relief to serve out the set! Second set tighter and my serving not as dominant as in the 1st. It was a job trying to counter Matt’s charges at the net but managed to keep him at bay with several great rallies along the way.

  • "Great match on New Year's Day! I got off to a flier in the first set, before the real Erik turned up and I found myself in a dog-fight at 5-3 down in the second. I was fortunate to extricate myself and avoid the unpredictability of a third set decider. We must play again, Erik, and I will be very wary of that fierce whipped forehand."  -- Brendan

Collapse AllWimbledon Park Doubles - Round 26 | Thursday 6 February 2020 to Wednesday 15 April 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 11 March 2020)

A commendable number of matches were played even though the round ended prematurely, so we have absolutely no qualms about handing out the gongs! Thank you all for playing and providing such good tennis memories to live on while wait for the chance to get back on court. Stay well and well done!

Group Summary:

Terrific scheduling and some excellent tennis propelled Colin and Ekaterina to the top of the table and though Elizabeth and Natalia beat them in a great match, even without the premature end to the round, the team couldn't be caught - the point won for the set they took of our bronze medalists ensured that. Well done to them and everyone for playing such memorable tennis.
