After two successful singles box leagues, the third (and final) league for men and ladies this year will run from Sep 16 until Oct 31.
Divisions, based on ability levels, will comprise five, six or seven players with new players included, existing players rejigged where necessary and players that played no matches removed unless they had good reasons for doing so (injury etc).
Each player will receive one point for playing each game (to reward playing), winning players will receive three points while losing players will pick up one point if they win a set. No walkovers will be recorded.
Players will play each other once each, so four, five or six matches in total. They can be organized in any order but please organize them as early as possible to account for injuries and bad weather.
The default match format will be two or three normal sets with a tie-break at 6-6. However, to make things as flexible as possible and if both players agree, matches can be two normal sets followed by a third set consisting of a long tie-break up to 10. Alternatively players may also agree a shorter set format – first to four – best of three sets should they wish.
Most players have been included in the group email and What’s App group so please contact your opponent individually and directly to arrange matches. Those not included will be given their opponents details directly and their details will be given to other players.
Please report all match results to Phil Tusler via text 07909 662491 or email firstname.lastname@example.org New players will join future leagues to either replace existing players or add to the league structure.
If demand continues, we will hopefully start the leagues earlier next year in April.
