Social Tennis - London Pyramid Competition

 

Social Tennis have launched an exciting new competition for Greater London/Home Counties. A tennis pyramid with world ranked ATP/WTA Tour players at the top and social players at the bottom. Ensuring everyone can easily play a tennis match against someone their own standard. This unique concept also provides a source of much needed funding for the tennis pros at the top of the pyramid.

 

Key Competition Benefits:

 

  • Flexible - play when and where you want
  • Easy - you can search for opponents by location, rating and availability
  • Manageable - no commitment the system automatically moves you down if you haven't been active in 30 days
  • Inclusive - open for all ages and both men and ladies
  • Low cost - from only £5/month
  • Quick - FAST4 matches as standard - longer formats by mutual agreement
  • Fast - the pyramid format allows a newly registered LTA 10.2 (ex-college player) to only play a few matches to reach their standard, unlike a traditional 3 month singles league which could take a year!

 

Here's how it works:

  1. Register on the web app or via the LTA website
  2. Sign up to basic (£5/month) or premium* (£10/month) membership 
  3. Search for players by location, rating and availability
  4. Send them a challenge
  5. Once accepted the app will show contact details to arrange the match
  6. Mutually agree exactly when and where to play
  7. Play the match - the winner needs to buy a post-match drink
  8. Submit results via the app - wins count for LTA and UTR Ratings
  9. Winners move up the pyramid, losers move down

*Premium membership allows you to challenge two pyramid tiers above, almost double the number of players compared to basic membership.

 

All members of the Social Tennis Pyramid are invited to free matchplay evenings. Hosted at various clubs around London these allow you meet lots of new players, play 2-3 FAST4 singles matches and socialise afterwards, winners of the matches buy the drinks!
