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.

Player Comments:

  • "Fantastic match. Chris, I wish I could match your fitness. Well played. The score doesn't represent how good a match this was."  -- Andy
Reveal CommentJesus Cazorla bt Neale Fraser (Aug 2) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "An hour and a half of a 6-0 6-1 is not really a 6-0 6-1. Quite intense match with good rallies and lots of close games. I enjoyed the match a lot. See you soon Neale!"  -- Jesus

  • "Really good match, I totally enjoyed it. Neal played some very good shots that made all my attempts to play at the net completely useless!"  -- Marcello

Reveal CommentMarcello Caramma bt Chris Chan (Jul 23) 3-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "t didn't start that well for me in the first set, and I expected it was going to be a disaster as in my first match. The second set started better, with me attacking and leading 4-2. Then I lost concentration, and Chris came back. Although I managed to focus on the tie-break and win the set. When we resumed today after stopping half way through the 3rd set we both were melting under the heat wave. Chris was playing some really good shots, but fortunately for me I was starting with two games advantage from before the break, so I managed to keep the distance and win the match. Heat aside, an enjoyable match!" - Marcello
Reveal CommentMarcello Caramma bt Hellinda Smith (Jul 21) 6-3, 3-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "We were worried about the weather, as it started to rain as soon as we got in the court, but then it stopped. In the first set Hellinda had to 'warm up', so despite her superiority in the rallies I managed to serve particularly well, and also to win enough break points to win the set. In the second set the situation was quite the opposite, and Hellinda got the best out of me. It really could have gone either way. I will enjoy playing some friendly matches after the tournament is over," -- Marcello
Reveal CommentJesus Cazorla bt Chris Chan (Jul 15) 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (7-3)

Player Comments:

  • "A very balanced match with long rallies and a big psychological fight particularly in the last games. It was very exciting to get to a tie break in the third set. Very close and enojoyable match. Thanks for playing Chris!"  -- Jesus

Reveal CommentJesus Cazorla bt Hellinda Smith (Jul 7) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "What a enjoyable match with Hellinda! We had to postpone the match for an hour because of the rain, but I really wanted to play that day because I had all the hype from being at Wimbledon the day before. I think I got some tips from the best players and I think I played one of my best matches ever. Hellinda was fighting and playing always with a smile, and we had lots of long rallies, balls to the lines and very good quality tennis. See you in the next league Hellinda!"  -- Jesus
Reveal CommentHellinda Smith bt Neale Fraser (Jul 6) 6-2, 3-6, 6-4

Reveal CommentChris Chan bt Hellinda Smith (Jul 6) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "We had some great rallys and lots of great points, Hellinda has a very solid stroke on her forehand, and really need to mix things up a bit to play against her. It was a great match and I have enjoyed it very much. Thanks a lot."  -- Chris
Reveal CommentJesus Cazorla bt Marcello Caramma (Jul 3) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A great match with Marcello, who is returning from a long break without playing but he was having some moments with great shots as well as other moments with more difficulties. He will be at full level soon! "  -- Jesus
