Vertical Tabs

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.

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.

Player Comments:

  • "An enjoyable game with contrasting styles. Ahmet powered into a 4:0 lead in the 1st, an epic 15 game followed, could of gone either way, but Ahmet came through meaning I was facing the prospect of a bagel in the first set. I managed to get on the board, but although I was able to break Ahmet in the next game, hopes of a come back we’re dashed when Ahmet’s power hitting saw him come through 6:2. The second set was a much closer affair. I came back to level after going 3:1 down, but after some trick shots from both players, Ahmet’s power game proved too much and I was broken after saving a couple of match points. Ahmet earned a well deserved victory, the second set finishing 6:4. Well played and thanks for the game Ahmet!"  -- Barrie
