Parks Singles League
A new concept – a Parks League for single, individual tennis players – was introduced in Autumn 2017 by BHPLTA, and proved to be very popular.
The 2017 competition ran for eight weeks until the end of October. There were six leagues and the champions were:
Premier: Marco Pineda-Cortes – St Ann’s
League 1: Stephen Wright – Queens
League 2: Steve Wossner – Dyke
League 3: Carlos Alves – Dyke
League 4: Karin Hranicka – Blagss
League 5: Annika Kinnuen – Dyke
Thanks to Claire Anderson (BHPLTA/Dyke) for organising. Details of 2018 competitions will be published here in due course. Please contact Claire for further information: 07561 213 064.
See below 2017 competition rules. These may be adjusted ahead of 2018 competitions:
TOURNAMENT FORMAT: Competitors will be placed in one of several singles leagues grouped by ability level. Competitors will aim to play one match against each of the other competitors in their singles league where possible. Each match will be arranged by the competitors themselves and can be played at any time during the Tournament. Contact details will be provided as appropriate.
MATCH FORMAT: Matches will be played at any neutral venue as agreed by each pair. Each match will be the best of three sets with tie-breaks to decide all three sets if relevant. The cost of new balls will be shared between each pair unless otherwise agreed.
SCORING FORMAT: Points will be scored based on the number of sets won by each competitor. If a competitor wins two sets to nil, he/she will be awarded two points, and if the score is two sets to one, he/she will be awarded two points and their opponent one point.
RESULTS FORMAT: Regular updates will be emailed to each competitor with results and updated league tables.
AWARDS: An engraved Brighton & Hove Parks shield will be awarded to each mixed singles league champion.
