The league is:

  • For everybody!

  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

  • "Great game with mark. It’s always a 3 set thriller. It was a little different as there was a park run party right next to our court for most of the match. Really good game though mark, looking forward to next time. "  -- Steve
Reveal CommentMark Ludlam bt Peter Davis (Jul 23) 7-6 (7-4), 2-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Another epic battle with Peter, this time without the sun but increased heat! Nip and tuck on the 1st set which I managed to take. Peter 'rinsed' me on the second one and I took the third and the match on a 'net cord drop shot' - apologies made. Always a good match played in the appropriate manner - competitive but friendly. Just to note that Peter's 'home club court' is certainly far better than the park courts. Cheers Peter and look forward to our next 'tennis tussle' "  -- Mark

Reveal CommentTony Nagy-Stephenson bt Jonathan Ryan (Jul 22) 6-4, 4-6, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "This was a long match, played in the spirit of the game. I played Johny earlier this year and he has continued to improve - he played some really good winners and many other really strong ground strokes throughout this match. After 2 sets I was so exhausted I was ready to concede the match (I had played another 3 set match the day before), but in a very sporting gesture , Johny suggested I took a break and got some drinks. After I had done this I felt ready to continue and we completed the match by finishing the third set. A lot of people would just have accepted me conceding defeat and taken the match but much credit must go to him for not doing this - it was a genuine sporting gesture in the spirit of the game."  -- Tony

Player Comments:

  • "Third set went into a tie-break and Imran won 11-9."  -- Imran
  • "This was my first competitive tennis match, and i'm glad I played against Tony, as he made me feel at ease from the beginning and until the end, and advised me throughout the match. The match started quite evenly with both of us finding our feet and was neck and neck until the end of the first set. I found Tony's serves quite hard to deal with due to the pace and spin on them, and the first set ended 6-4 to me. Tony upped his game in the second set playing some brilliant volleys and cross-court shots, and the second set ended 1-6 to Tony. The third set was exciting and gripping until the end with some fantastic rallies, the set ended in a tie-break with Imran winning the tie break (11-9) and the match.," -- Imran
