Both male and female players participate in the Singles event.

If you would like to enter the Mixed Doubles, but do not have a partner, register using the email above and we will help you find a suitable partner.  This is standard Mixed Doubles where there is one male and one female player.

 

Format

  • Matches are the best of 3 sets, with a match tie-break played as the final set
  • Members only, aged 14 and above
  • Groups ordinarily have 4 players (3 matches)
  • Rounds typically run for 8 weeks
  • At the end of each Round the player who has won the box is promoted to the Group above, the player at the bottom, moved down and the players in the middle stay in the same group.

 

Organisation

  • The leagues are managed using the LTA Competition Portal 
  • The Portal holds the players in each Group and their contact details
  • Players organise their own matches and provide their own balls
  • Match balls do not have to be brand new for every match as long as you agree they are suitable
  • Players are responsible for posting results on LTA Portal

Players are entered into subsequent rounds, promoted and relegated automatically.  If you enter the league after Round 1, you will join the lowest Group.

Only members can enter our box leagues.  For the portal to recognise you as a member of Odiham, your account must have the tennis club linked to your profile.  See this section on the LTA website: "Managing Your Affiliated Venues"
