Vertical Tabs

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
  • Matches are intended to be played weekdays during the day when there is good court availability at the AELTC Community Sports Ground
  • 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.

Reveal CommentRaquel Pinto bt Susie Rushton (Mar 13) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "It was a pleasure to meet and play with Susie on such great indoor courts at AELTC. It felt we were of similar level and as such was a long, competitive and close match with multiple deuces on many games and as such I was the lucky one to get some of the important points otherwise it could’ve easily gone the other way round. Susie carried on fighting despite near injury and disruptions from the class beside us when we were already overtime and I’m sure these may have impacted in some of her last shots so I’m certain that if we play again I may not hold the title! Thanks Susie and all the best on your next matches."  -- Raquel
Reveal CommentBrendan Mulcahy bt Isobel Stephen (Mar 10) 6-3, 4-6, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "We always have great matches and this was another close contest. The error count was fairly high - swirling wind didn't help - but there were plenty of convincing winners and we hit consecutive volleys to write home about in the first set! Cheers, Isobel!"  -- Brendan
