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.

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

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyed our game played under a searingly hot sun in temperatures over 30 degrees, we must have been mad! In a very even first set I was trying to keep the points short but Sam wouldn't let me. Eventually, I got over the line through being more consistent. Got away to an early lead in the second set and managed to see it out. "  -- Patrick

  • "A match not to be remembered for first serve accuracy however a good game played over an hour and a half. Some good rallies were had and several deuce games also. The 8th game of the first set at 4-3 was the turning point, having won the game I managed to close to match out."  -- Richard

Player Comments:

  • "Good game of tennis on a very sunny and humid day. When the rain came down in the morning I though our game in the evening might be postponed but the the sun was out by afternoon. We started our game at 17:30 and by then the temperature had got to around 24degrees. It was really hot we both felt it during the game. I thought Patrick brought the best out of me and I did for him too. We had many deuce games and I was lucky to come out with more wins. Game lasted for about a couple of hours even with the score line. I really enjoyed the game as there was lots of rally’s and running. Thanks Patrick"  -- Lateef

Reveal CommentSam Coombes bt Paul Thompson (Jul 1) 6-4, 7-6 (7-2)

Player Comments:

  • "An epic tussle with some shocking tennis mainly pattacake from Sam and the odd error from Paul. Paul stormed ahead in first set and Sam pegged back with some hack tennis. Second set followed a similar theme with Paul taking the initiative and Sam dragging himself back into the match. Should be mentioned that Paul very kindly lent Sam a tennis racket for the majority of the match after Sam’s strings snapped early on in the first set. Doubt anyone will read this, but on a hot and blustery day it was a good battle."  -- Sam
