The Woking league is made up of clubs within a ten-mile radius of Woking. Currently we have 5 mens teams, 2 mixed teams and a Ladies team competing in this league.
Woking League summer matches are played Monday to Friday normally starting at 18:30. Chaucer League summer matches are played over the weekend.
Winter matches are played on Saturday and Sunday during the day
Weather permitting, team mix-ins are held on the first and third Wednesdays of every month, starting at 6:30pm. All members who currently play team tennis, or are interested in playing team tennis, are welcome to come along.
The Riverside Tournament is an organised way of enjoying an afternoon of socially competitive tennis.
- it is a team’s event for 4 teams of 6 players
- each player will play 5 sets of doubles, each with a different team-mate
- each player will also play against 10 different opponents through the afternoon
- each match will be between closely-matched doubles pairs
- all matches are scheduled prior to the start of the day
The inaugural Riverside Tournament is to be played on the afternoon of Bank Holiday Monday, 30 August 2021, and is held in memory of Susan Pettinger. Expect refreshments and good company to be in plentiful supply.
Each year, allmembers can participate in a number of different competitions within the club for all members culminating i0n our legendary Finals Day party. In most years, this is scheduled for the Third Sunday in July, although in 2021 the covid-affected late start means Finals Day is on Sunday 12 September.
Normally, the club knockout tournament runs from late Spring till mid Summer with seeded competitions for:
- Mens Singles
- Ladies Singles
- Mens Doubles
- Ladies Doubles
- Mixed Doubles
- Veterans Mens Singles
- Veterans Mens Doubles
At the finals we have professional umpires in each competition, and a large crowd of spectators usually turns up for cakes and teas and to applaud the winners and losers.
Unfortunately, the 2020 Club Championships were cancelled due to Covid.
This is a great way to get to know more members, hone your singles skills and play some competitive tennis.
Members of similar ability are placed into a division of 4 players. A WhatsApp group is setup for each division, so players can self-organise to play every other player in their division.
Matches are best of three sets, with the third set simply being a Championship Tiebreak to 10 points, winning by 2 as usual.
Players will receive 1 point for each set they win, plus 1 point for playing the match. There is also a bonus point for winning in straight sets.
For example, if Claudia beats Douglas 2 sets to 1, then Claudia would get 3 points and Douglas would get 2 points. If Alex beats Danny 2-0, then Alex would get 4 points and Danny 1 point.
The Singles League Tour moves from country to country each month, with each division named after cities from the host country.
Each Singles League runs for a calendar month. Players are rotated into a new division each month, where they are mostly drawn against members they haven’t played recently, or at all.
New players, and players of all standards are welcome and encouraged to join in.
