Box Leagues at Hampton

Singles Box Leagues were first introduced in 2013 to give adult members an opportunity to play more singles tennis. The leagues cater for a variety of playing standards and hopefully you should find yourself in a league with players of similar ability. If you want to be included in subsequent box leagues, please contact us at tournaments@hamptontennis.org.uk.

Box league tournaments consist of leagues of around 6 players. Each tournament lasts for two months ending on the last day of the month. All match scores should be recorded on the Leagues option of the Online Booking System used for booking tennis courts. You can find this via booking courts in the members area on this website.


Rules

If two players have arranged to play a match and one must pull out for any reason, every effort should be made by both parties to re-arrange the match. If this is not possible, then the player who must pull out concedes the match 8-0 and both parties will receive 2 points for playing the match.

When new players join the box league, the committee will try to place them, where possible, in an appropriate division. All playing standards are welcome.

If you are unable to compete in a league due to injury or other reasons, you must let the committee know by e-mail. If you have played 4 games or more your scores will stand in those games, and where you have not yet played games, the score will be deemed to be 8-0 to your opponent and both parties will receive 2 points for playing the match. If you have played 3 games or less then all your scores will be scratched.

Players who do not play any of their matches will not be included in the next league unless they let the committee know by e-mail that they are unable to play their matches and that they would like to be included in the next league. If a player does wish to play in the next league, then that player must try to complete matches in the next box league. In fairness to other players, if this does not happen and there is no good reason, that player will not be included in the following box league.

You must let the committee know if they do not want to be included in the next tournament league.

Juniors will only be included in the adult leagues if they are over 14 and the coach has recommended that they are included. This is entirely at the coach’s discretion. In exceptional circumstances juniors under the age of 14 may be included at the coach’s recommendation. All juniors in the leagues as of 15th June 2018 will continue to be included in the adult leagues if they wish to do so.
