Vertical Tabs

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.

Getting started

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.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

Collapse AllSouthampton Doubles - Round 6 | Thursday 22 March 2018 to Wednesday 30 May 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 25 April 2018)

A competitive round to kick start the Southampton doubles league in 2018. Thanks to everyone for getting involved and playing in a great spirit, we hope you enjoyed it. Look forward to seeing you next time for more matches throughout the summer months.

Group Summary:

Georgios & Andrea were involved in both of the three set thrillers in this round, and all this practice paid off as they finished three wins to the good to take pole position. Vitor & Andre pushed the new champs all the way in their head to head, and despite missing out on the victory, the point they earned for winning a set in this match added to their win over Miwa & Hiroo sees them clinch second place. Nigel & Gary take the bragging rights for defeating Georgios & Andrea, and it was shame to see them later withdraw - hope you're both ok.

Final Rankings:

  1. Georgios Salavasidis & Andrea Munafo [W3, L1] 7 WINNER
  2. Vitor Barbosa & Andre Barbosa [W1, L1] 3 RUNNER UP
  3. Ranj Parmar & Aaron Cribb [W1, L1] 2
  4. Nigel Jordan & Gary Kemp [W1] withdrawn 2
  5. Miwa Ohtsuka & Hiroo Ohtsuka [L3]
