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.

"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."

Player Comments:

  • "This was my first time playing against Danny and the match definitely lived up to my expectations going all the way to 3 sets. First set I was able to capitalise on the errors off Danny's racket but in the 2nd set Danny was able to muscle his way through greater accuracy and power off his forehand and some great overheard smashes. We had to interrupt the match due to daylight fading and we resumed the day after to complete the topsy-turvy final set which took more than 1hr. After I scored 3 games in a row to go 3-0 up, Danny scored 5 in a row to be within very close distance of a win but I managed to turn it around yet again to win 7-5. Great match Danny anyway and good luck for the next ones! Cheers"  -- Imraan
Reveal CommentImraan Hansrod bt Augustin Mihalache (Aug 14) 5-7, 6-1, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "As usual I had a very enjoyable match against Augustin with some good quality rallies and both of us defending the baseline well. Augustin was more consistent in the first set but in the 2nd set I was able to dominate with a bit more power. In the final set, I was down 4-1 but I was able to keep calm and bring my error count down. This combined with some more erratic hitting from my opponent's racket helped me to notch a tight 3 set win in gusty and rainy conditions. Not the best weather at all but great match that ended as night fell. Thanks Augustin for a great match again! cheers"  -- Imraan

Luckily Martin preferred to play the game and lent me his spare racquet. The first set was very tight and levelled but Martin was stronger. Fortunately, I managed to come back on the second set and caught up on a very poor score line on the third. Overall many long rallies with a good variety of shots. Lots of deuces and some tense games on the menu. Thanks Martin. A rematch is required. "  -- Alexis

A good first set saw Jamie find his rhythm which set us up for a truly amazing second set which lasted an hour and a half. Jamie took the third set avoiding a tie break. We both tired quickly with our bananas not giving us as much juice as we had hoped but it was another great set to end a great match."  -- Jake

Adam was braver then me & did a lot more net play. He kept attacking me, and in the end it was too risky as it gave me just enough points to edge it in the final set. We were also baking minutes into the match as the sun shone brightly over the court, and had a fair amount of wind to make it even more interesting! Been a while since I'd played Adam, really enjoyed it and look forward to playing him again!"  -- James
Reveal CommentJake Webb bt Adam Banting (Aug 13) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "The first several games gave the impression it was going to be a match of serves, with very few rallies and both struggling to return each others serve and get a rally going. I eventually broke the deadlock and pulled through the first set. A few breaks of serve from both of us early in the second set made for an interesting start, which was finished with some hard fought deuce games."  -- Jake

Truth be told, George has better technique, but tennis is also quite a mental game & after I came back I maintained the pressure.

  • "Had an epic near 3-hour game with Lee that could have gone either way right til the very end! Most of the match seemed to be dictated by alternating players gaining momentum and winning several games in a row, until we ended up at 4-4 in the final set when we both become a bit more defensive, the rallies lengthened, the legs became heavier and each game became very tight. We both broke serve to save the match before the tie-break, which remained with serve until the last couple of points, when I got a mini-break but Lee then came straight back with 3 points in a row to clinch it. Cheers for a great game Lee, looking forward to the next one! "  -- Doug

Player Comments:

  • "The forecast wasn't the best but it started off relatively dry, with just a strong breeze swirling around the court. I managed to get ahead in the first set, although when the rain eventually came down and the wind picked up, Sandile Tony adapted much better than me, and stayed on top for the rest of the match. His faster serve suffered far less from the side winds, and even got an ace on the final match point! A somewhat frustrating, see-saw of a match for me, but I look forward to playing Sandile Tony again. He is good at the net and amazing at getting back all the lobs I chucked at him!" - Lee
