This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

We had to call ground control to swap courts such was the length of the third set decider which I sneaked through 6 - 4. A great match, thanks Robert! ......

I somehow managed to fight back from a set down, and 1-5 down in the tiebreak to win the second set. I think that knocked Rob back a bit with the third set not quite as close. I'm already looking forward to our next match. "  -- Malcolm

  • "This was one of the most gruelling matches I've played, brilliant fight from both players from the first point to the last. First set was nip and tuck, hardly anything between us both, before being settled 7-4 to me in a tiebreak. Pak came back strongly in the 2nd set to go 5-0 up, I brought it back to 5-4 before Pak closed the set out at 6-4. With both players exhausted the 3rd set was a slog, and at 3-3 I just about managed to get ahead and take the set. Thanks for the game Pak. All played to the backdrop of the David Bowie tribute event at the Recreation Ground, which was nice."  -- Antonio

I then managed to hold my serve in what turned out to be the pivital game before gong on to win the set 6-2. The score in the second set does not reflect the tennis played. There was some good rallies and some tuff points won. It was just unfortunate that lots of Nicole's shots started to go out which gifted me the set. Thanks again Nicole for a great match."  -- Chris

Player Comments:

  • "A marathon of a match that lasted two and a half hours with the miles being covered as well due to the amount of running around being done by the pair of us. I managed to take a 4-0 lead in the first set before Mike fought back to 4-3. I then just managed to hold on to take the set 6-4. The second set was very even with a lot of deuce games being played. I managed to get a lucky break to lead 5-3. Mike then saved a match point before winning the next 4 games to take the set 7-5. The 3rd set was again very even and both of us could see this going to a tie break. I again managed to get a lucky break to take a 4-2 lead and with the momentum behind me I managed to see out the match and win the set 6-3. Thanks Mike for a great match."  --
  • "Really nice long match, didn't start well going 4 0 down, I could not get anything past Chris down the line cross court, long short they all came back as winners. Would like a rematch at some time, well done Chris, -- Mike
