Revision information
Provide an explanation of the changes you are making. This will help other authors understand your motivations.

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

"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

"Loved playing in this league" 

Vikas Wadhwani

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

Daryl Chin

"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

"​Many thanks for organising the events which I very much enjoyed, in particular meeting friendly, interesting people and having the opportunity to play against new opponents",

Ante Sesardic

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

Gavin Prentice

Reveal CommentFabio Giusti bt Jonathan Carr (Mar 14) 4-6, 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "All matches with Jonathan are a challenge, as he never gives up on a ball or holds back on a chance. After going up 4-0 in the first set I thought I had the first set in my pocket, but I was left powerless watching Jonny take over the court and win 6 games in a row, taking away from me the first set just like that... Wow! At some point Jonathan's shots were so fast and strong that I was struggling to keep the ball in and find my timing. In the following 2 sets, however, it was consistency that decided the result, with me being increasingly consistent on the court and planning my moves more carefully. The results don't tell the whole story though, as it's been a real battle till the very end. Great game!"  -- Fabio
