Box League II

These are fun, inter-club competitive tennis mini-leagues for St Ann’s Tennis members. Each league season (two months approximately) costs £8 to enter.

We will be using our bespoke online scoring system, which will allow players to enter their scores immediately after matches, with league tables updating in real time. This can be done online or via your mobile phone.

We will decide the box categories once all the entrants are in, with the divisions published by Friday 3 May. Entry deadline is 30 April. We will follow a similar format to our inaugural Box League last year. See details and results here.

Female players can enter the women’s league OR, if they prefer, the Open (Men’s) league. Each league will include 7-8 players, and each match should be mutually arranged between players, using our St Ann’s Tennis WhatsApp groups.

Match Format
Box league matches will be played as best-of-three sets. The first 2 sets will be regular sets with a standard 7 point tie break played if the score reaches 6 games all. If the score is one all after 2 sets, players have an option to play a third set, OR a championship tie break (first to 10 points, 2 points clear) should both players agree.
Scoring
5 points – straight sets win
4 points – 3 sets win (including wins by Championship Tie Breaker as a third set decider)
2 points – Lost in 3 sets
1 point – – Lost in straight sets
When you enter your scores, our online scoring system will automatically calculate the points, eg. Player A def. Player B 6-4, 4-6, 7-5: four points automatically awarded to Player A, and two points automatically awarded to Player B.
