ABOUT LADIES TENNIS SINGAPORE
Ladies Tennis Singapore (LTS) is sanctioned by the Singapore Tennis Association and operates with their full support. The goal of LTS is to offer competitive inter-team tennis match play to the ladies of the Singapore tennis community. Aside from offering competitive inter-team tennis match play LTS also aims to foster good sportsmanship and camaraderie among teams.
LTS conducts two seasons within the year. The Spring season commences in January and ends in May. The Autumn season commences in September and ends in December. The final season schedule takes into consideration holidays observed by both local and international schools in Singapore.
Players are invited to form teams with a minimum of six (6) and a maximum of eight (8) players. There are currently three divisions of play: Premier A, Premier B, Division 1 . The registering teams are placed in a division according to the level of play of its team members.
|LTS Premier A||WITS Premier A and B|
|LTS Premier B||WITS A & Alpha|
|LTS Division 1||WITS B and Beta|
|LTS Division 2||WITS C and D|
The registering teams are placed in a division according to the level of play of its team members.
Matches are played once a week: Premier A matches are scheduled on Thursdays and Premier B and Division 1 matches are scheduled on Fridays.
On match day, each participating team fields two doubles pairs, a Line 1 pair and a Line 2 pair (so named only to differentiate one from the other, not to indicate relative strength of the pairing.) Each pair plays two sets against the opposing pair. Thus, each pair plays four sets. A point is awarded for each set won. The total number of sets played by two pairs of a team equals eight (8); the best set score to be achieved is eight (8). A bonus point is awarded to the team who garners the most number of sets. The highest score to be awarded will thus be nine (9). In the event of a four all score, the bonus point is awarded to the team who has won more games.
In the event of a tie, the bonus point is split between the teams with a resulting score of 4.5/4.5. The complete description and rules of the LTS format can be found in our LTS rules.
