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!

"What a super tennis year it has been. Thank you for arranging it all so well. My experience has been that the groups are competitive and not lop-sided, and I have managed to play more than 20 matches throughout the year, something I would not have dared imagine at the start,"

Richard Rhodes

"Really enjoyed the round,"

Andy Greaves

"Thank you for a fantastic league - very well organised and supported! Full credit to you! I have now found a new passion in tennis!"

James Annakin

 "Thanks for all your great organisation and encouragement throughout the tournament, great respect to you all," 

Murray Matthews

"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

''My first experience of playing matches was positive and I want to continue playing on. Thanks to both Sally & Nigel  for providing a professionally run local league, its greatly appreciated,"

Errol Waite

Player Comments:

  • "Tom and I both started well into the match and had some very close games until mid of the set where I actually managed to win the only break of this entire match. It turned out I was very lucky to serve first in the set. The second match was head to head until the time-break where I've managed to win the important points. Have to say it was very hard work in both sets as Tom has a very good understanding of the game and reading the game of the opponent. Good luck with the other games. Thank you, really enjoyed this. Btw Tom's tip for the world cup is Belgium whereas I think it is going to be Portugal ;)"  -- Julian

  • "A great, really competitive match. We exchanged breaks at the start, then both held serve until the final game, where I got over the line with a hard fought break. Sacha came out in the second set firing on all cylinders, and taught me the folly of going toe to toe with him! 3rd set was a more cagey affair, and I was just that little bit more consistent. Enjoyable match in great weather. "  -- Tosin
