Revision information
Provide an explanation of the changes you are making. This will help other authors understand your motivations.

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!

Reveal CommentAlex Beaumont bt Sid Nyein (Apr 24) 5-7, 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "I was pleased with this result as Sid is a very good player, with a big serve and some really strong ground-strokes. This was largely defense vs attack with defense winning out, with Sid deservedly winning the 1st set, and me pulling through in the next 2. I learnt to deal with his serve and keep getting the ball back in the rallies, which I guess made a big difference. There were some long deuce games which I ended up winning, so the result could have been different. Notably we had a very long deuce game with me serving the match out at 5-2 - and Sid had a number of break points. It would have made a nervy ending for me had he won that game!"  -- Alex
Reveal CommentAlex Beaumont bt Elias Bertolini (Apr 21) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Revellers flocked to Wandsworth Common looking to make the most of their bank holiday weekend by catching some high class tennis. The thousands who turned up were not disappointed as winners rained down on court more regularly than the Southern Trains that sped past on the adjacent railway line. Having already played in on session that day James was having to dig deep into his seemingly endless supply of energy, grit and determination, just like a Duracell Bunny, and pulled off some high class tennis. The crowd roared for more and they were treated to a high class second set of aces and a game that went to what felt like a 16th Deuce. It showed such quality that manufacturers have designed T-shirts to be worn by the adoring fans, £15RRP!"  -- Edward
Reveal CommentEdward Hamill bt Victor Piot (Apr 29) 7-6 (7-4), 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Brixton's busy and bustling High Street could be heard in the background for this much anticipated encounter. The steel drums playing out a melody only matched by the pattern of the players rhythmic shots on the court. Victor has a forehand that is as graceful as a gazelle galloping across the plains, however, the top-spin that he exacts on the ball can, just like the gazelle, kick you in the face if you're not careful. The first set went deep with both players drawing on reserves that they didn't know they had. Luckily my mid-winter training holiday at altitude seems to have worked. The fans provided a rowdy backdrop to this encounter and seemed to be enjoying their bank-holiday weekend by drinking in the first class tennis on show."  -- Edward

Player Comments:

  • "A slippy Kennington Park was the scene for this all star match that drew the crowds of South London to cheer on their idols. In the build up to the game major news outlets were highlighting Andy's impressive array of strokes that see him as one of the most electrifying players of the modern game. Drawing crowds come easy to this man! The spits of rain, ever-present during a British Tennising summer left the court a bit spicy in the words of Greg Rusedski who was covering the match for EuroSport TV. No matter, these two players delved deep into their arsenal to pull out some truly remarkable shots to entertain the partisan crowd. At one point Andy switched hands to hit an inch perfect left-handed winner down the line. Remarkable scenes!"  -- Edward

Player Comments:

  • "With it being a Thursday night and sports fans across London knowing that it was only Europa League night, Clapham Common was the place to watch high octane and pulsating sport. Tickets for this game were sold out in minutes prompting the organisers to lay on a Fans' Park and boy did they turn up in their thousands! Such excitement and hysteria around this Group 12 match has led to SKY and BT fighting it out to secure the rights to broadcast future matches. More on this news to follow. As for the fans who watched they were treated to a sumptuous display of this fine sport with shots as crisp as the first strawberries of the summer! An encore was demanded and was duly obliged as the players put on a tennising exhibition. Bravissimo!"  -- Edward

Player Comments:

  • "There was a carnival atmosphere at Clapham Common tonight. This may have been due to the fact that a carnival was taking place next to the tennis court, however, the tennis fans of South London still turned out in droves to witness a compelling and masterful display of tennis. Facing Matt's serve is like trying to hold onto a mechanical bull, with such pace and precision on the ball it gets you in a bit of a helter-skelter and the first set became a roller-coaster. The fans were left screaming for more and the second set, just like a go on the dodgems, duly delivered. Winners rained down on a more regular basis than the revolution of a carousel and the fans were left awestruck by the class on show. Great game, well played."  -- Edward

Quinn was great in volleying my lobs and had some lethal aces.
