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.

Collapse AllBromley Tennis For Free Doubles - Round 4 | Thursday 20 June 2019 to Wednesday 28 August 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 24 July 2019)

This was a fantastic round of the Bromley Doubles with only 4 matches left unplayed. That is a great result in doubles which we know requires some considerable organising skills. Well done everyone and thanks so much for all your effort and commitment which is very much appreciated. Here's to the next one!

Group Summary:

Good to see the Wimbledon mens final inspiring some great matches here and hope the US Open does the same for the next one! Very well done to the new champs, Carl and David and commiserations to runners up Matthew and Sacha who beat the champs in a 'lovely game of tennis in good conditions'. Great match commentaries and well done for getting so many matches played - we know it can be tricky in doubles!
