There are two tennis box leagues – Ladies Singles and Men’s Singles, and they parallel throughout the year. Each player gets to play all the others in the same division per round. At the end of the round, the top two players get promoted and the last two players move down one division.
The leagues have been run since November 2016 and after a pandemic pause, they are trying to get back up and going. The next round begins 1st of July.
