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 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 AllWoking Singles - Round 34 | Thursday 23 January 2020 to Wednesday 18 March 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 19 February 2020)

77% of all possible matches were played which is brilliant for a round that began in January and had its midway point in February! Many thanks for all your scheduling efforts and great play! Here's to the next one, whenever that may be!

Group Summary:

A great round for the new group champ Roberto who won five matches out of five but everyone made him work for his win. Almost every match when to either a tie break or three sets and there was a particularly tight encounter with runner up Jason in which Jason save 6 match points! Well done to both and to everyone for making this such a busy and competitive group.

  1. Roberto Villalobos [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER

Player Comments:

  • "The battle of surfaces! We played the first set in fast court and we decided to play the rest of the match in the clay court. I struggled a lot to adapt to the new surface and Benjamin used this to take advantage early in the second set. Third set was supertied and I only managed to break his serve in the last game. Well played Benjamin and thank you for the invite!"  -- Roberto

  • "What a game! Jason and I had to play in 2 separate days because we ran out of time in the first one, being the total match play around 2 hours. Close game, as the result indicates, with good rallies, specially in the 3rd set. I needed 7 match balls to close the match, as Jason saved 6 match balls in his last serve and coming back from a 0-40! Really fun game Jason, it could have gone either way! Hope to play again soon :) "  -- Roberto

Group Summary:

A great group with a good number of matches played and fine tennis. Teodor finished just one point ahead of runner up Mark, though Mark has the satisfaction of beating the champ, clawing his way back from 3-5 down in the first set, and taking the next four games! But Teodor came through great games against Jack, Carlo ('only a few points here and there made the difference') and Alessandro ('did plenty of running') to emerge on top. Well played!

  1. Teodor Sava [W3, L1] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Mark Wilding [W3, L1] 7 RUNNER UP

Player Comments:

  • "Andrei got me last time round as I ran myself ragged trying to find a way past that amazing defence! This time round, I tried to be a little more patient and mix things up. Was staring down the barrel for most of the first set after losing my first service game on a double fault... but clawed it back in the nick of time at 5-3 down. Windy conditions on an otherwise pleasant morning made for a tricky second set with shots and serves regularly disrupted. All in all... a very enjoyable match and I imagine that our game in the Guildford league will be another close affair! Thank you Andrei."  -- Mark
