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

"Thanks for the lovely time," 

Kerstin Luksch



"It was fantastic. Everyone was super-nice and eager to play as soon as possible so to make good use of the good weather. In the end it was more difficult to organise the last match that was postponed until the very end and didn't happen, but there's only so much you can do when you're working and when holidays and weather are concerned too. All the emails and support from Local Tennis Leagues after each match is just great, makes you feel it really is a live league with participation and feels almost like a family. Keep it up!" 

Fabio Giusti

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

Gavin Prentice

"We had a nice bunch in our group and chat away and arrange our own games at weekends, so you are very successful and should be proud of your achievements! Thanks again for organising," 

Riejet Oliver

"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."

Reveal CommentLewis Nicod bt Lasha Tvaliashvili (Aug 8) 6-0, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "I managed to grab the momentum in the first set, winning a few tight games and then building on that. I took that into the second set, winning the first 4 games. Lasha then came back and it was 4-4 then 5-5, before I managed to come through 7-5. A good game, I enjoyed it. "  -- Lewis
  • "Good game Lewis, he maintained focus and consistency. With regard to my game, it was too primitive and ambitious, with too many unforced errors, consecutively losing 10 games without much fight..." -- Lasha
Reveal CommentLasha Tvaliashvili bt Vikas Wadhwani (Aug 3) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Lasha played very well and although the first set was very close, in the second set I struggled after 2-2 and that's when Lasha kept the momentum and won 6-3. "  -- Vikas
Reveal CommentLewis Nicod bt Javier Oliver (Aug 3) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Great game. After losing the first 3 games I managed to win a close 4th game to stop Javiers momentum and get back into the set. It went to 3-3 then 4-4 before I broke serve and just about served out to win the set. The second set was also close with neither of us able to hold serve for the first few games then both holding. I managed to break at 4-4 and again serve out to win. I enjoyed the game. "  -- Lewis

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play Lewis today. Perfect weather, sunny weather, can't say the same for now when I am submitting the score. Pouring :-( First Set: Lewis up 5-2 and loses 7-5 Second set: Vikas up 5-2 and loses 7-5 Crazy. Final set both of us were knackered and it wasn't fair on Lewis as we both were just trying to keep the ball in and let the other make an unforced error (I hate this actually), but we both had lost our juice. Apart from the final set, the match was awesome, lots of great rallies and deuces. Well played Lewis. Would love to play u again. "  -- Vikas

Player Comments:

  • "We both played quite well, despite a swirling wind which made conditions rather tricky. I was impressed by Jesus's game, especially as until a week ago he hadn't played for over a year. He is a welcome addition to the league."  -- Andrzej
Reveal CommentAndrzej Szymanski bt Robin Sibley (Aug 10) 6-1, 3-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "This was a topsy-turvy encounter went to three sets. I managed to edge it by breaking Robin 3 times and losing my own serve once in the deciding set, which was a mirror image of the second set. It was a match played in the correct spirit and attacking manner with many winners coming from both players. I'll never forget one particular point which I ended up losing when Robin closed the gap to 3:2 in the final set, where we both played a number of shots which normally would have been good enough to win most points. The early evening sunshine further enhanced the spectacle."  -- Andrzej

Reveal CommentAndrzej Szymanski bt Baresh Kebar (Aug 6) 6-3, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "During a tight first set I found it tough to win my serve and I came back from 0-40 to clinch it 6:3. I decided to change my strategy in the 2nd set and I got off to a fast start and maintained that momentum until the end. The scoreline in the 2nd set does not truly reflect what happened. I managed to win all three close games where we had multiple deuces and I had to come back from break point down to seal the match. It was a pleasure and meet and play Baresh."  -- Andrzej
