Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a singles league just for women
  • Groups are put together by standard
  • 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 all women 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 posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Player Comments:

  • "Another lovely afternoon in Battersea park with another lovely opponent! It was a great match, lots of fun and some brilliant rallies played. Funniest part was when we realised even if we teamed up as a doubles team we'd still probably get blown off the court by this awesome and very talented little lad, who can't have been older than 8, who was playing next to us! He definitely inspired us to up our game (as well as distracting us so we kept forgetting the score!) But all in all, a thoroughly enjoyable match and made it to the end with what we think was the right score in the end :) also great to witness some of Britain's talented youngsters! Thank you and hope we get to have a rematch sometime! "  -- Katrina

  • "Another glorious day for a tennis match. A thoroughly enjoyable match with a lovely opponent! A brilliant and close second set, with some brilliant rallies, Zara sending me all over the court frequently! I think we definitely both peaked during our knock around after the match, with no match pressure involved, we both hit some awesome shots and again I was sent very far and wide scrambling to get to many of them! If we can play at that level during another match, it will be an epic match for sure! I definitely look forward to a rematch and many more knock arounds! "  -- Katrina

We played some great points, particularly a long rally at the net which was awesome! Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable match, thank you."  -- Katrina
