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 again for another fun packed round,"

Matthew Miles

"Thanks for placing me in such a great group. As the results indicated, things were pretty even and we all seemed to enter into the spirit of the league and get a lot from the experience,"

Matthew Miles

"My opponent and I were chatting... When we joined the league we hadn't played tennis for many years. But then as we played more we both thought we'd improved and gained more confidence and hopefully were playing much better tennis towards the end... It was a very close competition and great fun!"

Jeremy Toogood

"I have just completed my first season in the Bristol Tennis League and had a great time. As a player with no previous singles match experience I found the group I was in the perfect level despite my losses. All the matches were closer than the score line suggested and I hope that I would be placed in a similar group in the future. Thank you very much for organising an accessible and friendly league."

Anonymous

"Again, many thanks - very enjoyable round,"

Rob Wallis

"Thanks for the update - it was great to see one of my matches reviewed and I'm having a real ball (groan) playing with all these different people!"

Player Comments:

  • "Very good match played in great conditions. Vlad played a great game of tennis with big first serves and a very good variety of shots. Vlad certainly made me work for each point, it sometimes felt I had to hit 3/4 winners to actually win the point as Vlad's reach allowed him to return many shots I was not expecting to come back. With that big serve and heavy topspin on the forehand side, Vlad will win a lot of matches. Cheers, Stuart "  -- Stuart

Player Comments:

  • "Vladimir got off to a great start serving big, taking control of the rallies early and finishing them off with some sharp volleys. I used the new set to regroup and started to dictate points more and serve more strongly. In the final set I managed to get an early break to go 2-0 up and held on from there! A really entertaining game with many exciting rallies, thanks Vladimir!"  -- Matthew
Reveal CommentAlexis Macron bt David Ash (Mar 31) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks David for arranging the Courts. I started the match on a back foot, like I did for the two previous matches. This unpleasant thought started to spring to mind:What on earth am I doing on this court?. After being led 3-1, I managed to come back. Not sure what happened but it worked. Most games went to deuce and we had some good rallies. David won the previous match last year. Hopefully we will meet again for a rematch."  -- Alexis

Reveal CommentStuart Bannerman bt Matthew Townsend (Mar 22) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyable game with Stuart! I lost tight first set mainly down to a few mistakes on my part and solid, varied hitting from Stuart. In the second I immediately broke and started to get in to rhythm on my serve and started to see some success using drop shots and high topspin to Stuart’s singlehanded backhand. However, Stuart’s serving continued to improve and I didn’t stick to my guns and he eventually broke me after a marathon game at 2-3. From there on it was mostly one way traffic as Stuart continued to mix up the pace and spin of his shots and target my forehand which wasn’t at its best this morning! Thanks for a really fun match and some great tactical and technical advice after Stuart! Can’t wait for the rematch."  -- Matthew

Last week Lee took a tightly contested 1st set, while the 2nd set stayed on serve at 2-3 before the dark stopped us. We re-convened a week later and I managed to hit the ground running and took 4 games straight to win the 2nd set. I served first in the decider in a mammoth, double-digit deuce game that I scraped.

Reveal CommentMichael Kennedy bt Kalliopi Moysiadi (Mar 10) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "It was great to play Kelly again. We had to contend with all four seasons - wind, rain, sunshine, and a ice-cold hail. At times it seemed like we were playing against the conditions rather than each other, as the ball took on a life of its own in the wind. All credit to Kelly for battling through it and playing some great passing shots. Looking forward to playing again sometime in better weather!"  -- Michael
