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 AllWolverhampton Parks Singles - Round 12 | Thursday 22 March 2018 to Wednesday 16 May 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 18 April 2018)

It looked like an enjoyable as well as eventful round as testified to by the match commentaries... Mark, for instance, thanked Jesse for the loan of a spare racket after his blew up "trying to return one of [Jesse's] nuclear serves"! This shows the true spirit of Local Tennis Leagues in helping each other out! Well done for a great effort in playing over half of all possible matches in this round. Here's to the next!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Jon for winning all of the matches he played! He went as far as to not even drop a set which is always a tough ask. Jon also won a group last round meaning he has now earned himself back to back titles. Second place was earned by Jesse who produced a solid showing by winning 4 out of 6 matches, grabbing his bonus points along the way. Everyone got stuck into this round which was great to see and lots of lovely match comments were left. Welcome back to Mihai and Piotr who put in a great effort to play their matches after a break from the league and a warm welcome to Robert on his debut round in the league!
