Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, 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!)
  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • 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 available on the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

"Thoroughly enjoyed the league again, thanks for organising it!" 

James Annakin

"Thanks for the updates and all your hard work bringing this all together – it’s very enjoyable although I think the Xmas festivities have made organising some games difficult. Further result is from myself v Tony which I finally won 2-6, 6-1, 6-4.A great afternoon of tennis with a lovely man and sums up the whole Bromley Tennis League of fun, competitive tennis with some very nice people,"

Julie Shelley-Barnes

"Excellent fun. Never played competitive tennis before and hadn't played at all in years. Thanks for organising this fantastic league" 

Bert Lueken

Had an amazing time playing some very close matches with friendly people, and really enjoyed the experience. Thanks for putting this league together.", 

Stewie Worley

"Just a short note to say that I really enjoyed playing some singles tennis - this was my first time in the league. This is a great initiative and a real incentive for players to get out and play some more tennis," 

Marc Belben

"Last year I started off in group 5, and it seemed like a huge task to reach group 2 or group 1, but with a bit of luck in the next round I will finally be there. Determination and lots of matchplay really boosts your confidence, and gives you the edge you need. If you are in those lower boxes don’t lose heart, keep playing, "

Player Comments:

It was difficult for either of us to get any rhythm on our shots. There was never more than a 1 game advantage to either player in the first two sets. I went 5 - 2 up in the 3rd set but then Boye came back to make it 5-4 but then fortunately I won the next game to win the set 6-4 and the match. Many thanks Boye for the game and I look forward to playing you again under normal playing conditions."  -- Marc

It was probably the luckiest day I've ever had on a tennis court as I had at least 7 net cords go my way and none went Tosin's way. When the wind died down a bit towards the end, the match was much more enjoyable with much longer rallies. Thanks for the game Tosin."  -- Rajiv
