This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, 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!)
  • 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 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.

Player Comments:

  • "Tough game and tough conditions. This was a real battle with some very enjoyable long rallies and some great shots. Unfortunately the weather complicated gameplay somewhat due to blinding sun and strong gusts, but a very enjoyable game. "  -- Gary
Reveal CommentTim Webb bt Michael Rose (Nov 30) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "This was Mike's first 'proper' match as well as his first league match and we had a good tight match not reflected in the score. There were plenty of deuce games especially in the first set with both of us playing defensively. The second set went the same way and we had a good couple of hours tennis. Glad we were indoors on Friday! Welcome Mike and well done."  -- Tim
Reveal CommentMartin Riley bt Robert Anderson (Nov 25) 1-6, 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "This match was played in two instalments due to “rain stopped play”. All 3 sets were very different. I couldn’t get close to Robert in set one - he deservedly won it easily. The second set really decided the match. There was little in it and I nicked it 6-4. The third was closer than the score suggested but everything I did worked. There were a number of duece games and Robert was unlucky in a few of them. Thanks for the game Robert - it would be good to play again."  -- Martin

Reveal CommentMartin Riley bt Tim Webb (Nov 22) 3-6, 6-0, 7-6 (7-2)

Player Comments:

  • "The Met Office said “4 degrees but feels like zero”. And it certainly did! However, after a very tight first set, with only one break of serve, which Tim deservedly won we weren’t feeling the cold so much. Not sure what happened in the second set but Tim never got going and the third was nip and tuck which went right down to the wire. I clinched it 7-2 in the tie-break. Could have gone either way - thanks for the game Tim. "  -- Martin

Reveal CommentGary Piazzon bt James Bruce (Nov 11) 6-3, 4-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Really tough game - partly because we were both quite evenly matched, and party because a combination of the sun and damp surface made it nearly impossible to see what was happening from one side of the court. Really enjoyable game though. Lots of of long rallys and great points. Thanks for a great game! "  -- Gary
