  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is

  • For everybody!
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Players are grouped by 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 tie break 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
  • Players are grouped according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Everyone in the group plays each other once during the round
  • You get one point for each set you win
  • 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 each group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winners get a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of the groups (and sometimes the top two) are promoted for the next round; those who come bottom (and sometimes the bottom two) are demoted

UPDATE OUR VENUES

"Thank you Sally and Nigel. Absolutely loved playing in this league and looking forward to the next one starting on Nov 20 (it's my birthday and a perfect birthday gift for me!) This summer has been the best summer for me in my 10 years in London. Not only weather wise, but the amount of tennis I have been able to play. Now only if Roger had beaten Djokovic in the Wimbledon final it would have been the summer of the decade. But maybe we have to wait for 2015 for that. Fingers crossed,"

Vikas Wadhwani

"Great round. Had some really good matches and played my first grass court match in a few years thanks to the league at the Ealing Tennis Club."

Vikas Wadhwani

"I'm really pleased that I managed to win the group! Had some really good matches, and lots of us have met up since for friendlies - great to have some tennis partners in the area at last" 

Robin Marsden

"Thanks for helping to organise Nigel! It was a blast. I'll continue playing with the new friends I've met,"

"I had some good matches in the league, which pushed me more than the scores suggest"
