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 AllHigh Wycombe and Hazlemere Singles - Round 35 | Thursday 16 January 2020 to Wednesday 11 March 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 12 February 2020)

35 matches were played in this round which is 71% of the total possible and a very respectable result! Well done High Wycombe and here's to getting even more played next time!

Group Summary:

James successfully defends his title once again in a very active and committed group in which almost everyone got their bonus points. James was one of only two players to play all possible matches (6) and not even runner up Nick, with whom he had a cracking game, could knock him off his number one spot! But they had 'an absolute marathon' and James said there was 'absolutely nothing in it'. Maybe next time... meanwhile many congratulations!

Final Rankings:

  1. James Copland 8.2 [W6] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Nick Massey [W4, L1] 11 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Lee Widra 9.2 [W3, L2] 8 includes 2 bonus points
  4. Harry Shearer [W2, L4] 7 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Randeep Bahia 10.1 [W1, L4] 5 includes 2 bonus points
  6. Bolan Oluwa 9.1 [W1, L4] 4 includes 2 bonus points

Player Comments:

  • "An absolute marathon of a match with Nick, having had to reschedule due to the weather twice it would’ve been a huge shame if we hadn’t got our match in. Absolutely nothing in it. Lost count of the number of winners hit by both of us, especially in the second set where we both raised our games and got the best out of each other. A shame someone had to lose, already looking forward to the next one. "  -- James

Group Summary:

A great round for group champ Anna who will be promoted again next time after finishing undefeated in 6 matches! Fantastic stuff! Kabir, who apparently plays with zen-like calm was runner up.

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentJane Smith bt Kabir Inaganti (Feb 8) 7-5, 7-6 (7-1)

Player Comments:

  • "This was a hard-fought match. Kabir is hitting some fab topspin shots and gets everything back. He has improved enormously and fights for every point, yet remains zen-calm throughout! The same was not true of myself! It was near impossible to see the ball on one side because of the sun, and the incoming storm brought some horrendous and distorting wind. Plus, I lost count of the number of set- and match-points lost due to hitting a few centimetres long! Somewhere in there, it was a pleasure to play Kabir and learn from his patience and quiet determination. Well done, and I know he'll beat me next time!"  -- Jane
