Junior Singles Box League
The box league is a casual way for our junior players to get match practice and socialise outside of coaching against players of a similar age and standard. Matches are organised by parents at a time that suits best. They are great for any players who were born in 2010 or before and who can serve, rally and score. Each round will last for a period of 4-6 weeks. This first round will last until July 16th, meaning all matches should be played by then at the latest.

The box leagues are managed by our court booking system – ClubManager365. You can access ClubManager365 by logging into www.clubmanager365.com directly or going through www.smartclubcloud.com and going to Club Manager via “bookings”. The login and password that you use to book courts are the same for both systems.See PlayersUserGuide for more information.
To find the Boxes in ClubManager:
1) Click on “Box Leagues” at the top of the page – select “Results and Tables” from the drop down list.
2) Then go to Select Box League – Group – Girls/Boys Singles Box League from the drop down list.
Another handy way of accessing the box leagues is via the ClubManager365 App (CM365App). Click CM365MobileApp and follow instructions to download the App. Once logged in users will have the ability to view box leagues positions and tables and enter results for matches they’re involved in via the box league menu.
Match Scoring System:
All box league matches are first to 8 games, with a regular tie-break at 7-7 (first to 7 points, winning by 2 – the first server serves once, and then the server changes every two points, with players swapping sides of the net every 6 points). Games are normal games but with short deuce (first point after deuce wins the game). If players are unsure of something, coaches are in the club most afternoons and can answer any questions.
Points are awarded as follows:
8/0 (winner gets 20, loser gets 4)
8/1 (winner gets 19, loser gets 5)
8/2 (winner gets 18, loser gets 6)
8/3 (winner gets 17, loser gets 7)
8/4 (winner gets 16, loser gets 8)
8/5 (winner gets 15, loser gets 9)
8/6 (winner gets 14, loser gets 10)
8/7 (winner gets 13, loser gets 11)
The winner must input the result on ClubManager as soon as possible after the match. Once you click submit, the score is entered. The points are re-calculated and positions updated automatically.
At the end of each box cycle players move up (first position in table), down (bottom position in table) or remain unchanged based on their results. At the beginning of each new mini season players should see a different set of opponents.
There will be some small prizes for those who win their group at the end of each box cycle.
Good luck to all and most importantly, have fun!
