This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, 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!)
  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • 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
  • 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 available on the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Collapse AllBattersea Park Singles - Round 40 | Thursday 13 February 2020 to Wednesday 8 April 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 11 March 2020)

Group Summary:

An impressive win for James who played and won four matches. With his bonus points as well this put him beyond the reach of runner up Matteo who led the chasing pack. Newcomer Adrian was unlucky not to have come away with a win after very close matches with the top two and a shame to see Jamie didn't get underway this time. Hope you are ok!

Group Summary:

A quietish group with 6 matches played and three players who didn't get going. Perhaps they were waiting to make a final push at the end which of course was not allowed to happen once the problems around the coronavirus became apparent. No one got their bonus points but Matt won all three of the matches he played and had the satisfaction of beating runner up Andy for the first time. Congratulations!

It's a shame he and runner up Alexis could not complete their match with was poised at 6-7, 7-5 when the curtain came down early on this round, but well played in any event.

Group Summary:

No bonus points here and with a bit more time, we feel sure more matches would have been played. Rohan played two extremely close matches which both went to three sets and tie breaks and turned out to be against group champ Chris (which he won) and runner up Dick (which he lost). a few more matches and he might have improved on his 3rd place ranking but Dick and Chris both played one extra match. Chris won two out of three so tops the group this time. Well played and here's to getting even more matches next time.

Group Summary:

Everyone got going in this cut-short round which is great and two players managed to get their bonus points too - well done Ben, and newcomer Federico. Ben also got five matches done and dusted which was more than anyone else, so even though he lost to Robin ('as even a match as you will get!) and Carl, he tops the group. Congratulations!

Group Summary:

We like the sound of the 'fiendish, pin point serving on sides' in the match between Richard and Philip and Richard will be pleased he won it because, having tied on points for second place with Philip, this win makes him runner up. The group champ this time is Samuel (congratulations!), whose run of wins may possibly have been interrupted by Mogamat. But unfortunately, they didn't finish their match and when Covid stopped play it was left at 6-4 to Samuel and 1-1 in the second set. Maybe they will get to play another time.

None of the four players who got on court was undefeated; Gioacchino beat Charlie, Charlie beat Alex and Alex beat Gioacchino!

Group Summary:

Unfortunately Freddie had to withdraw at the beginning of the Coronavirus crisis but by then he had done enough to top this relatively quiet group.

Player Comments:

  • "It was nice playing against Julien again, first time this year. Keeping to what seems to be our tradition we played in difficult weather conditions, i.e. 4 seasons in a match. Very windy at the beginning, then rainy, haily, then sunny, then cloudy, and back to very windy. We played throughout though. It was an enjoyable match, battling both with the opponent and the wind. All the best with the rest of the league. Looking forward to playing again! "  -- Claire
