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.

Nicola Yeeles

"It was a great experience. This is a clever system to find a balance between competition and leisure playing,"

Alexis Macron

"Thanks again for the opportunity of playing in this league and here's to the next round....."

Matthew Miles

 "Just want to say thank you for organising these leagues.  I only started playing tennis last year and only wanted to play singles. If it wasn't for you organising these leagues I would not have the opportunity to compete in this sort of format without joining an expensive club.  I still email all past players and meet up for games to keep improving and so I can start the next round without a long break,"

Andy Nash

"Thank you very much and I really look forward to defending my title"

Ben Coleman

"Thank you for the lovely choices of prizes! You guys are amazing! I'm so glad I joined this league. I even have an LTA number...How good is that?! Brilliant!"

  • "It was my first time playing against Vlad who proved to be a very good tennis player. I had lots of difficulty returning his serves and top spin at the start. Thankfully for me, the unforced errors from his racket combined with my resilience and determination to get the ball back helped me win the key points in each sets. Vlad almost made a comeback from 1-5 down in the 2nd set but I was able to close the match with some more consistent serves. Overall, very pleasant match and it was a tightly contested 2 setter."  -- Imraan

Player Comments:

  • "A long and close game that could have been won by either player but Temi's consistency won out in the end with just a few too many unforced errors coming out of Oli. Both players took some time getting there eyes in but once that happened there were some great rallies, great passing shots and great net play. It was a fun game despite the wind and the hunger felt by both. Thanks for the game Temi!"  -- Oliver

Player Comments:

  • "A wonderfully pleasant evening's tennis as the sunset drenched the skies at Coombe Dingle a peachy red. I think I hit my stride more quickly than Oli, getting a set under my belt. However it was all-change for the second set, as Oli left me standing time and again with a thundering low drive. I inched out to get to 5-2, but he saved the match point on my service game to bring the score more level, taking the next game as well. I got a more comfortable 40-0 on the next attempt though, enough to keep the nerves at bay to close out the match. Cheers Oli."  -- Lee
