Every player who completes three matches by the midway point of any round is sent a FREE can of tennis balls! Plus there are great offers all the time in our shop.


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.

Collapse AllBattersea Park Women's Singles - Round 11 | Thursday 16 January 2020 to Wednesday 11 March 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 12 February 2020)

Just a small round to start the year but thank you for keeping the flame of tennis alive this winter. Hope to see you all on court again before too long.

Group Summary:

Katrina is no stranger to group wins, but once again she had to work for it. Rebecca showed she had the fire-power to win the group and beat our eventual champ, but Katrina is an excellent scheduler. She earned her bonus points and played more matches than anyone else. Well done all.

Final Rankings:

  1. Katrina Capey 10.2 [W3, L1] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Rebecca Giannini [W2] 4 RUNNER UP
  3. Anna Chong [W1, L2] 2
  4. Aoife O'Brien [L2]
  5. Jacqueline Allen 10.2 [L1]
