This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • 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
  • 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.

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

Collapse AllRotherham Singles - Round 3 | Thursday 4 May 2017 to Wednesday 28 June 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 31 May 2017)

Good to be back underway in Rotherham in 2017 albeit with one small group. This is still a young league and it can take time to prosper but we'd love to see it grow so please do help us spread the word if you can. Thanks for all your efforts and we hope to see you next time!

Group Summary:

This already small group was hit by Adrian's unfortunate withdrawal - hope you're ok Adrian. The remaining three got on court for all of their matches and it was James who came out on top with two wins from two to take home the prize. Richard prevailed from "lots of long rallies and games going to deuce" to take the victory over Philip and clinch second place.
