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:

  • "How good do you have to get before you get a score board and umpire?! A really enjoyable match with a really lovely opponent but boy did we keep losing track of the score :) I think we got there in the end though! We just have had too many good rallies which kept distracting us from the score! It was a really nice match to be part of, unfortunately I think katherine was a bit worn out after what sounded like a very busy day at work but still managed to play some great points, and has a brilliant return of serve. Thank you Katherine for a really enjoyable match and look forward to playing some more with you soon. Good luck for the rest of the league and enjoy a well deserved restful weekend!"  -- Katrina

Player Comments:

  • "Absolutely awesome match to be part of! So many great points played, and brilliant rallies at the net, both running like Rafa til the end to get balls back! Very close throughout, sadly a few too wobbly service games from me tipped the score line the other way but no regrets - we both played some great and aggressive tennis which is just my style which led to it being a fantastic match to be part of. Really hope we get a rematch soon Catherine! Thank you, congrats on a very well played match from yourself, and all the best with the rest of the league."  -- Katrina

  • "Really great to play the lovely Melissa again! We had some great rallies and the natchfefibiely felt closer than the scoreline! Melissa hit some cracking winners from the baseline and we enjoyed many deuces!! Altogether great fun on a lovely sunny afternoon in Battersea (needless to say we were very grateful we had a court mostly in the shade!!) Thank you and look forward to another rematch!"  -- Katrina
