Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a singles league just for women
  • Groups are put together by standard
  • 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 all women 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 AllWimbledon Park Women's Singles - Round 8 | Thursday 11 April 2019 to Wednesday 5 June 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 8 May 2019)

Sixty per cent of all possible matches were played this round which is very respectable and many were rewarded with sunshine. Some hard fought matches, great come backs and old rivalries made this a very enjoyable round to read about. So glad you had fun and hope to see you back next time.

Group Summary:

A very convincing win for Rachel who played every available match, won three of them and was the only person to get bonus points! Many congratulations. Runner up Louise (the defending champ) was the only player to beat her in what was apparently their usual battle, though kudos to Leila for coming back from 1-5 down in the first set in their match. Some good encounters elsewhere and lovely match reports. Many thanks to all.

Final Rankings:

  1. Rachel Kift 9.2 [W3, L1] 9 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Louise Crane [W1, L1] 3 RUNNER UP
  3. Becky Deeming [W1, L1] 2
  4. Leila Panesar Morris 10.1 [W1, L1] 2
  5. Emma Tavener [L2] 1

Player Comments:

  • "Always great to play Rachel and usually a real battle which it was today. Rachel was on fire in the first set but I was fortunate to gain the upper hand in the next two. Until we meet again Rachel!! "  -- Louise
Reveal CommentRachel Kift bt Emma Tavener (Apr 30) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Perfect evening for tennis and we had some good rallies. Emma covered the court really well and got most balls back. While the score suggests it was one-sided, Emma made me work really hard and I think it will be a much closer affair next time once she has got in a bit more match practice "  -- Rachel
Reveal CommentBecky Deeming bt Emma Tavener (Apr 27) 6-4, 3-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "This was an enjoyable and close match to start the weekend off. Some good rallies and a lot of games going to deuce, the result could have gone either way! Good luck for the rest of your games Emma :)"  -- Becky
Reveal CommentRachel Kift bt Leila Panesar Morris (Apr 26) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Another hard fought match against Leila and some really good tennis played. Many of the games went to deuce and there were some great comebacks from both of us to stay in sets - Leila from 5-1 down in the first, and me from 0-3 down in the second."  -- Rachel

Player Comments:

  • "This was a very close and long match on a sunny and warm day. We both played quite well when things weren’t going our way and neither of us would give up! Best of luck in your other matches Louise"  -- Leila
Reveal CommentRachel Kift bt Becky Deeming (Apr 16) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "This was the first time Becky had played since last summer. We had a few close games in the second set when she was finding her shots more and I'm sure it will be a closer contest next time around. Thanks again for the match Becky and best of luck with the rest of your matches"  -- Rachel

Group Summary:

Zane and Isobel finished neck and neck, both earning 5 points after winning 2 matches and leaving one (their head to head!) unfinished and fittingly 6-4, 4-6! So we really had to dig out the rule book for this one. The penultimate criteria (just before we toss a coin) is who conceded fewest games on average per matches played. That means Zane pips Isobel at the post, but very well done to both. A shame not to see anything from Weiwei this round. Hope you are ok.

Final Rankings:

  1. Zane Baring 9.2 [W2, UF1] 5 WINNER
  2. Isobel Stephen 8.2 [W2, UF1] 5 RUNNER UP
  3. Jane Hansen 9.1 [W1, L2] 2
  4. Sarah Stephens 10.2 [L3]

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentIsobel Stephen bt Jane Hansen (Apr 15) 6-1, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Always a pleasure to play Jane and today was no exception. The wind was a bit of a nuisance and led to Jane putting some balls long in the first set but when I was 3-5 down in the second set I really thought we would be enjoying the sunshine for a third set! However I pulled it back! Looking forward to next time Jane. "  -- Isobel
