Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Congrats to Forty Love who leads the Head for Points / redspottedhanky tennis league

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

We had a grand total of 133 teams enter the Head for Points league as part of the Wimbledon competition!

The reason for running this – apart from it being a bit of fun – is that you earn 3p of credit for buying train tickets at for every point you score!

RedSpottedHanky Wimbledon

Forty Love has played a blinder and (as of Sunday) is leading our mini league with 340 points.  He / she is therefore well placed to bag themselves the maximum £15 of free train tickets at the end of the week.

(I am also pleased with my own performance at positions 16 and 28 out of the 133 teams!)

Whilst it is now too late to enter this competition and generate a substantial prize, you can still enter the Formula 1 competition.  Because the scoring system is surprisingly generous, you should still be able to earn yourself the maximum £15 prize if you pick a half-decent team.  Note that there is not a Head for Points mini-league for this one.

    Hi Raffles,

    Regular reader here, first time commenter.

    I have been getting surprisingly into this Fantasy Tennis – and am doing well so far at 324pts. One slight query against your post – I thought that players receive 3p RSH credit per point, not 5 as you have stated?

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but I don’t want anyone to give up thinking they have maxed out the earning potential on this one.

      Er, yes! Quick correction now made. Thanks Jack. Teach me to type things late at night ….

    Interesting to note that the top player overall (in the whole RSH competition) is currently on 480 points, so they are only just about to max this out right now (500 points > £15 maximum credit).

    Thanks Raffles, the Forty Love team is mine. I had a poor day today and have fallen into second place behind Cmon Tim (shouldn’t that be Andy). Anyway, with 448 pts I’m confident of getting the full £15 RSH credit so thanks for bringing this to my attention. Along with a £10 Tesco Clubcard exchange to £20 RSH credit I’ll have a bit of cash for a train trip later in the year.

      To be fair, Cmon Tim was a late entrant! If there was a prize for winning (which there isn’t!) he wouldn’t get it (sorry Mark!) as he had already built up a big pile of points before joining the league.

  • Rob says:

    With 3,500 players, it is very possible! Let’s see how it works out. I am only in it for the train voucher though 🙂
