This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, 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!)
  • 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 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.

Thanks to you for providing this platform for us to get some extra matches under our belts", Garth Patience

It was a most enjoyable round, not just because the results went my way, but everyone in the league cooperated fully in arranging the matches and all the matches were played in an excellent spirit

Timur Shakirov

After not playing tennis for over 24 years it has been most refreshing to play in the Bexley Parks Tennis League against Brian, Joe, Paul, Eamonn, and Cvetan. I believe this is a fantastic way to get back into tennis. Well done to Bexley  Parks Tennis League for organising this

Fred North

All of my matches were losses but most enjoyable, with all players friendly and fair. Look forward to the next round

Fred North

Thanks again for your tireless work in these leagues, I have enjoyed all the other leagues I play in and have found it to be an overwhelming success overall. It is very well organised, sociable, personable and competitive, and a fantastic initiative to be part of.

Player Comments:

  • "You always know you're in for a tough match when playing as good a shot-maker as Paul. The first set was much closer than the score might suggest, with many games going to multiple juices. In the second set, once I got ahead Paul grew frustrated with the consistency of his play and lost focus enabling me to take the win"  -- Patrick
Reveal CommentDavid Williams bt Paul Thompson (Sep 6) 7-5, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "It was good to play Tommo again and great for myself to finally get the better of him at the fourth or fifth time of asking. Never more than a game between us in the first set, but at 40-0 up at 5-6 Paul got a little careless and I was able to take advantage. Thereafter I remained solid and saw the second set out.

Player Comments:

  • "A marathon match played in great weather. After I took a tight first set Jason came roaring back and took the next comfortably, playing some fantastic winners. In a titanic third set I raced into a 4-0 lead but Jason fought his way back, edging some incredibly long and tight games. We both had and saved match points in the tiebreak before I was able to clinch it. Really could have gone either way - I think we'll both be putting our feet up for the rest of the weekend to recover!"  -- Noah
