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.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

This group was absolutely fantastic, so much fun

Andreas Heinsius

"I have very much enjoyed the league and think it's a great thing for tennis players across London"

James Barrie

"Great round, competitive matches, good weather helped with finishing matches early. Thank you for organising. I have advanced my game with the league"

Derya Yilmaz
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

Thanks for organizing. Awesome job!

Michal Bohanes

"Loving this league, all credit to you guys organizing this. I wish they had this in New Zealand. Although we probably would need a few more people in my hometown!"

Collapse AllBattersea Park Doubles - Round 11 | Thursday 25 May 2017 to Wednesday 2 August 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 28 June 2017)

A closely fought round for Battersea Park Doubles, with plenty of very tight matches - though we could have done with a few more matched played! Nevertheless, players enjoyed some lovely weather while improving their individual skills, and playing some really exciting tennis. It would be good to see more matches played by all groups next round – as the score tables show, getting matches played is crucial, and makes all the difference to the final result! We don't have a magic wand, but we will help get matches scheduled and played if asked...

Group Summary:

The score table is very close for Group 1 this round, showing that our doubles teams were very evenly matched! Congratulations to Scott & Myles who came out on top, and Alasdair & David who were runners-up.

  • "A great match in which the second set definitely better reflects the closeness of the match than the first. Even in the first set, every game went to 30 or deuce and we were lucky enough to get the decisive points. Very happy that Melissa and Jack were rusty off a recent holiday- would not have been pleasant to receive Jack's serve if it was firing on all cylinders. Thanks for the match guys!"  -- David

Our match experience came complete with ballkids who helpfully stood as close to the court as possible so as to better let us know when our serves went into the net. Thanks Alice and Emma (and ballkids)!"  -- David
