Avenue Tennis League – Update & Latest Positions

by | Sep 22, 2022 | Competitions, News, Results, Tennis

Avenue men’s singles champion James Rosenthal is the latest to join the club’s new league ladder (latest positions below).

He is joined by other newcomers Rowan Smith, Jordan Goff, Matt Boucher, Mike Robinson and Helen Cooper as the ladder reaches 43 players so far,

Five matches have been played in the first week with two wins from Lee Keeping, maintaining his position in 13th and two from George Knight, who rises to 24th.

Adam Tolmie enjoyed one victory and one defeat, rising above David Spink into 17th thanks to his win.

Players can rise up the ladder by challenging higher ranked players (up to five places above them) and winning the match, in which case they move immediately above them in the rankings. If they lose, then both players simply stay where they are.

Players – men and women – may play as often or as little as possible depending on their circumstances, hopefully offering more flexibility to everyone.

Players who are challenged should make every effort to accept the challenge as early as they can, unless hampered by injury, work or other commitments. Players who don’t play during a three-month period will drop three places in the ladder.

New players can join the ladder at any time. They will be slotted in at an appropriate step of the ladder.


21.9.22 Lee Keeping bt Adam Tolmie 6-1 6-3
