Every player who completes three matches by the midway point of any round is sent a FREE can of tennis balls! Plus there are great offers all the time in our shop.


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 AllWorcester Parks Singles - Round 16 | Thursday 15 August 2019 to Wednesday 9 October 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 11 September 2019)

More good tennis in the 16th round of our small but highly valued Worcester Parks Tennis League. Thank you all for the great tennis and commitment to friendly, competitive tennis. We take a pause now for the winter, but see you all again in the spring.

Group Summary:

Unfortunately, defending champ Martyn was sidelined through injury part way through the round, so that meant we were guaranteed a new winner. In fact John, who stepped up the mark and won all his five matches, also beat Martyn in a match of "gruelling rallies" and well deserves the group win! Closest in the chase was Mark with three wins leaving Martyn still with enough points to bag the bronze.

Final Rankings:

  1. John Mcdonald [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Mark Jeanneret 10.1 [W3, L1] 8 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Martyn Dudley 9.2 [W2, L1] withdrawn 6 includes 2 bonus points
  4. Aidan Byrne [W1, L2] 4 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Nicholas Gaskill [W1, L3] 4 includes 2 bonus points
  6. Edmee Coleman [L5] 3 includes 2 bonus points
  7. Andrea Harding withdrawn
