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:

  • "Only one word to describe this match - Epic! It was close throughout the game and in the end it could have easily gone either way with neither player deserving to lose. There were some fantastic rallies and Ollie is ruthless at punishing any short balls - well played and hope to play again sometime. "  -- Simon
Reveal CommentAndrew Watson bt David Quinn (Nov 21) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Very enjoyable match with David, lots of good rallies and close points. Could have easily gone to 3 sets."  -- Andrew
Reveal CommentDavid Quinn bt Neale Fraser (Nov 18) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "The score in no represents the match. Long rallies and only two games in the first set that didn't got to multiple deuces. The second game I employed my favourite weapon of this time of year - low winter sunshine in the eyes of the server. Very enjoyable match which was no walk over - as testified to by the quantity of ibuprofen I've needed to keep my joints moving since the match. Good game"  -- David
Reveal CommentAndrew Watson bt Rory Nosworthy (Nov 17) 6-0, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "We both had problems with low sun glare which affected serving. Second set was much closer than first. Thanks for the game. Andy"  -- Andrew
Reveal CommentJesus Cazorla bt David Quinn (Nov 10) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Interesting match with David, since we have similar styles. We had lots of very long rallies which I enjoyed a lot. As always, playing with David is great since he is a really friendly person, and we both speak Spanish and English! Looking forward to play again soon. Jesus"  -- Jesus
Reveal CommentJesus Cazorla bt Neale Fraser (Nov 9) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was quite an epic match. We started with 20 minutes of horrendous wind and lots of lost balls coming from the adjacent court, but after that the match continued with 1 hour of awful wind + heavy rain. That was causing some lakes on the court which added some more strategical aspects to the game. We continued playing with no stops and we stoically finished our match., which apart from the weather was quite enjoyable. Jesus "  -- Jesus

  • "Another fun match with you David, lots of good long rallies played in great spirit despite being a rather wet and windy day."  -- Ollie
Reveal CommentDavid Quinn bt Hellinda Smith (Nov 8) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable game including three of the longest games I've been involved in - all in the second set. In one game alone, Helvinder aced me twice! Once down either wing! Scary. The combination of low sun and strong wind made serving and receiving from one end....well....taxing. Extremely good fun"  -- David
Reveal CommentAndrew Watson bt Neale Fraser (Nov 2) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Played in bright sun, good conditions. An extra set was played which was closer than the first two. Thanks for the game Neale."  -- Andrew
Reveal CommentSimon Negus bt David Quinn (Nov 2) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Great game today with David - perfect conditions and some half decent tennis played. David kept me on my toes the whole match, coming back from 5-2 down in the second set to level at 5-5 before I managed to close out the set for the win. Very enjoyable. "  -- Simon

Reveal CommentDavid Quinn bt Rory Nosworthy (Oct 24) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Rory fell prey to my secret weapon - sunglasses! Who would have thought you would need them at the end of October in the UK. But the sun was blazing in the sky. There were a lot of deuce games but when you're opponent is basically blinded for half the match, it help....a lot"  -- David
