Vertical Tabs

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.

"Thank you again for organising this. I have loved playing"

Tom Lloyd
One of the best rounds yet. My opponents were basically all superior players, but my strategy of relentlessly getting the ball over the net somehow prevailed. I think I might get found out in div 2... surely wrinkly power has its limits
Andrew Mayers

"Just wanted to say thanks for organising the Battersea league - it's incredible how quickly it's all grown in the past 2-3 years! I also received my tennis dampeners as the bonus prize so thank you also for those," 

James

"Thank you Sally!  I really enjoyed it! I look forward to the next round"

Tom Lloyd

"I would like to congratulate you for the good organisation and management of this excellent event, the Local Tennis Leagues! 
Well done! I wish I had this in Spain too!", 

Angel Moraleda

"Although I have only played one match it has been a fantastic experience and I would like to thank the event  organisers for the effort they put in to make this happen"

Iain Armstrong
