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.

Player Comments:

  • "It was exhausting and long duration match on a day with perfect weather. Alex started match on a high node and finished first set with 2 ace serves in no time. I was finding grip on my racket and was unable to return strong servers of Alex. I returned to game with some confident shots in 2nd set and Alex kept on committing double faults which helped me to win 2nd set easily. We started 3rd set with all out efforts. It resulted into few long rallies and good shots from both player. 8th game was longest where we saw 15+ deuces on Alex serve. But I could manage to win that game which made my target easier. Fantastic match. Alex got very good serve but his inconsistency in serve cost him match. Well done Alex. I'm lucky to win. "  -- Manoj Kumar
