On behalf of the HEAD Liverpool and District Tennis League
ADDITIONAL PROPOSAL FOR SCORING SYSTEM IN SUMMER LEAGUES
The proposal is:
The advantages can be seen as:
1. Every set counts. Teams losing on a match tiebreak would still score 1 point
2. This will heighten the player experience on match nights
3. The league tables will have more interesting permutations as results accumulate.
4. This system is compatible with the LTA League software to allow for online results submission.
Is there a drawback?
The only drawback might be that if 6 rubbers aren’t completed due to light or rain the full quota of points cannot be obtained. However this can be seen as minimal as virtually all matches were completed in recent seasons due to the old best of three full sets being changed.
