Leeds Winter Tennis League

 

Wakefield Tennis Club have again secured a place within the Leeds Mixed Winter League so that interested members can continue to play competitive tennis throughout the year; the standard is similar to Wakefield division one.

Matches take place indoors at Leeds Metropolitan University - Headingley Campus, which is about 3 miles from the centre of Leeds.

The matches start in September and there are between 5 and 7 matches before Christmas, and similar after. The top two teams at Christmas get promoted, the bottom two teams get demoted.

Matches are played on Mondays / Tuesdays and they start at 8 p.m. The centre closes at 10 p.m.

Match fees are £8.00 per person which is pretty good for around two hours of indoor tennis in winter. The fee is payable to the captain at the tennis centre on arrival. Balls for "home" matches are provided by Wakefield Tennis Club and are to be returned to the club for social play.

You don’t need to commit to playing in all matches, but if you feel that you’d like at least some involvement please put your name forward to the captain - Lione.

Order of play:

Mixed A v Mixed A - - - Mixed B v Mixed B

Men v Men - - - Ladies v Ladies

Mixed A v Mixed B - - - Mixed B v Mixed A

Two points are scored for each set won, unfinished sets result in each team getting one point each so the match score could be 12-0 / 11-1 / 10-2 etc. The points are then added up and the team with the most points wins two match points or one match point each in the case of a draw.

Tie breaks are at 6 all.
