This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a singles league just for women
  • Groups are put together by standard
  • 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 all women 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.

Reveal CommentLien Hoang bt Suzy Burroughs (Nov 26) 2-6, 7-6 (7-2), 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "The scoreline in the first set is exactly as it looks. I produced many errors (forced and unforced) whilst Suzy played with complete control of the court. Second set looks closer. I just edged it by finally finding the right shot on a couple of pivotal points along with Suzy being distracted by the unfamiliarity of playing a tie-break, also the fast fading light, and time running out! Hopefully we will get to finish the match before the end of the round."  -- Lien
  • "A pleasantly dry morning after the wet weekend. I was very lucky to get away with this one as Suzy held at least 2 match points in the second set at 5-4. Thanks, Suzy, and looking forward to playing again!" Lien

The wind sent serves a little too far and the sun was a disadvantage on one side of the court. Don’t get us started on the downpours!! We were both still smiling at the end of it. Claire’s a fab player and hopefully we will play again in the future. Thanks again :-)"  -- Rebecca
