This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, 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!)
  • 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 posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Collapse AllAberdeen Singles - Round 18 | Thursday 4 October 2018 to Wednesday 28 November 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 31 October 2018)

An excellent turnout once again in Aberdeen with more than 80% of all matches played and the majority of bonus points earned too. Thanks to you all for taking part and showing a great enthusiasm to get on court, we hope you enjoyed your matches. Here's to more of the same when the league returns in 2019!

Group Summary:

Attila had a near miss with top spot in the last round, and he used this to inspire his performance this time as he notched up a full house of wins and bonus points to take his maiden title with the highest score possible. Former champ Simon was once again in the running for the prize, but with a narrow three set defeat to Attila in their head to head he takes the silver on this occasion. Well done to Henry and Puranjay for their efforts in their "2.5 hour" marathon match and to you all for getting so many matches played.

Group Summary:

John "kept the fans on the edge of their seat" with some terrific play and thanks to six superb wins and excellent scheduling skillls he pulls clear in first place. Kudos to Sean who finishes with the satisfaction of having beaten the new champ in a thrilling match with "rally after rally". Grant also showed fine form to secure four wins, and this included an epic victory in the battle of the Grant's, to comfortably clinch the runner up spot. A shame to see Scott withdraw - hope you're ok!
