Vertical Tabs

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:

  • "What an epic match! In the first set Row managed to hold on to the breaks of Neil’s serve, and in the second set Neil’s forehand whipped up countless cross court and down the line winners. The third set saw several breaks of serve and some long rallies and games leading to a nail biting tie break. Well played Neil, the match could have gone either way!"  -- Rowena

Reveal CommentRowena Wakefield bt Christopher Edwards (Jul 12) 6-4, 7-6 (9-7)

Player Comments:

  • "This was a tough match in scorching 27 degrees, with crosswinds and flies to contend with, it could easily have gone to a third set which neither player wanted! The first set had twists and turns with plenty of breaks of serve. In the second set the wind played a bigger part making it tricker to predict the ball and bounce. In the tie break Chris was leading the whole way with Row preparing to head into a third set, until it got to 6-6 and points became longer and very tense. Great match Chris, well played!"  -- Rowena

Reveal CommentChristopher Edwards bt Toby Lowsley-Williams (Jun 26) 6-1, 3-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Another chapter in our long friendly and rivalry played in the muggy heat and full of interesting twists and turns. Toby started slowly ( first set ) and then found his rhythm ( second set - a new Babolar racket asserting itself with strong serves and depth of returns). During a very lively and tense third set we both started to wilt a bit, and to feel the heat and pace. In the end the differences between us were very small- a net cord here, a lucky drop shot there. Great fun and a good way to start the summer league. Christopher"  -- Christopher
