Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, so men and women play each other 
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls)
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also available on the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Graham McGrotty

"Thanks for the updates, commentaries and scores....a great incentive to get on and play.

A lot of long games and rallies, with 1 game lasting 35 mins in the third set at 2-2. Wish we counted how many deuces.

  • "Our match was played on a dry windy evening. And while Hector hasn’t been playing for long - a handful of fast flat first serves caught me off guard along with some nice topspin backhands from Hector. After the first set, I had found my groove with serving... and Hector struggled to deal with a kick serve. The Match was over relatively quickly, we had some time to play some touch tennis which was a good laugh. Thanks Hector for an enjoyable evening. Feeling your vibe and enthusiasm. Keep practicing dude. "  -- Oliver

Player Comments:

  • "A perfect evening for tennis. Some heavy deep hitting from both and some well constructed points played on both sides of the net. Simons one handed backhand down the line got me a few times. I was serving slightly more constituently than Simon which helped me win the match. Thanks Simon for a great game - I hope to sneak into the net like you and get a slice backhand that matches yours. All the best and hope to play you again in the league at some point. "  -- Oliver

  • "A really long tough match played on an insanely hot morning. The first two sets were over quickly (fortunately) and in the last set it seemed like it could be a case of last man standing wins as we both suffered in the heat.I went 2-0 up, Oliver levelled at 2-2, we then had 4 breaks of serve before Oliver held and I had to save two match points before holding out to win and sneak the last couple of games to avoid the tiebreak. A great match with some really long rallies and games. Thanks Oliver for the game. "  -- Jamie

It was very close indeed, with 'the force' alternating several times throughout the match. It must be said that the luck did NOT alternate; if I hadn't had almost all the lucky breaks Terry would probably have won instead."  -- Harry

Player Comments:

  • "I have played Julie more than anyone else and don’t have a great record so it was nice to finally get a victory again. Our match was started and abandoned in rain at 2-2 and we continued on a sunny but breezy day at Eaton Park. The first set was a long cagey affair which could have gone either way until I nicked a break at 6-5 with the actual break point secured on the very lucky bounce. The second set was more one sided as Julie perhaps felt the impact of her 24 mile charity walk from 3 days earlier. As usual, a pleasure to play Julie and whilst played at a steady tempo we had some really great rallies. Look forward to continuing our battle at some future date Julie."  -- Andrew

Reveal CommentLynne Johnson & Mark Johnson bt Martin Robson & Harry Seddon (Jun 30) 5-7, 6-1, 2-1 Martin Robson & Harry Seddon Retired

Player Comments:

  • "Thoroughly enjoyable game played in excellent spirit. It was nip and tuck throughout the first set with Martin and Harry savin* set points before coming out on top 7-5. Second set Lynne and mark kept the upper hand throughout to win 6-1. The third set was shaping nicely for a competitive finale. Unfortunately Martin was called away on domestic commitment and so sportingly, forfeited the set and as such the match. All four of us really enjoyed the game!"  -- Mark
