GLTC regularly has Mens and Ladies box leagues underway. If you want to join the next box league session when it starts contact Heber (0870501938 or firstname.lastname@example.org.) for the mens’ or Ruth (email@example.com or 0870501937) for ladies.
What is the box league?
Box league gives members the opportunity for competitive tennis within the club and is a great way to meet new players at a similar skill level.
Match Scoring System:
All tennis box league matches take the form of a pro-set (ie first to 8 games, winning by 2) with a regular tie-break at 7-7. Games are full games.
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.
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.
