Winter Mixed League 2016/7

We are now ready to proceed with the Winter Leagues.

There will be 2 Divisions:

Div 1: Albany A, Castletown A, Douglas A and Douglas B.

Div 2: Douglas C, Douglas D, Ramsey A and Ramsey B.

Each Team consists of 2 men and 2 women with a mixture of Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Doubles.

We are using a different Format this year involving a total of 6 sets per match instead of the 8 in previous years.  It was felt that matches sometimes went on a bit long, particularly in the evenings, so the shorter format is preferred.

However, this format is new to us and is as follows:

Men play a single Men’s Doubles set whilst Women play a single Women’s Doubles set.

Players are then allotted to Mixed Pairs, designated Pair 1 and Pair 2.

The Mixed Pairs play a single set against EACH of the opposing Mixed pairs (i.e 2 sets per Pair in all).

Total sets per match: 6.

I attach schedules for each Division.

Please note that on the Scoresheets, names are needed only for the Mixed Pairs: from these it will be obvious who the Men and Women pairs are!

Hope everything is clear. If not, just ask.

Happy Winter Tennis!

IOMLTA End of Season Dinner


 The Isle of Man LTA Annual Dinner & Prize Presentation will be held at the Douglas Golf Club on Friday 21 October starting at 7.30pm. The two course meal is £16.25. If you would like to attend please let Pat Sharp know by 6 October with your payment (chqs payable to IOMLTA) which can be left in the white post box in the Clubhouse.

Thank you all for your contributions to the Leagues this year.  It would be lovely to see some of you at the presentation dinner.  We do have  a trophy to collect – Men’s B Team in Division 2 of the Summer Leagues and we should hopefully know the outcome of the Summer Mixed League Division 1, where Albany A are up against Castletown A!

Summer Mixed League Update 4th Oct

IOMLTA Poker Stars Summer Mixed Doubles Tennis Leagues – RESULTS

Albany A (Home) to Castletown C.

Team – Jim & Sarah; Andy & Alison King – Won 6 – 0! Albany A still have two matches remaining, both against Castletown A. These remaining matches will decide who the Division 1 winners are!

Albany B (Away) to Douglas A (Final Fixture!!)

Team: Tim & Anna; Garreth Roome & Charlotte – Lost 4 – 2. A good score, and particularly well done to Garreth and young Charlotte who won the 2 sets against a good Douglas A side. So sorry about getting the start time wrong guys, but at least we were early and not late. I am pretty sure with that result, you guys have finished 2nd in Division 2, really well done!
