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:

  • "A good solid opening set from both, just one break that Brian gifted to me a little bit with two double faults. Second set our level dipped a bit and my forehand sailed long as Brians hit the net from winnable positions. Both need to improve finishing on the short ball, like strikers that create chances but too often miss the target! Look forward to next one Brian, cheers"  -- Omar
Reveal CommentBrian O'neill bt Oliver Knaut (Jul 21) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Another tough match against Oliver the human wall! You don't get free points against Ollie so you need to come either with a game plan or be ready for some very long rallies. Thankfully my serve was operating today and I applied a bit more aggression than usual to avoid the monster rallies. Thanks for the match! "  -- Brian

Player Comments:

  • "On a sweltering day, Thomas and myself managed to somehow play for two hours without collapsing. There were two minute breaks between games, numerous shot clock violations between points and much staggering about (mainly from me admittedly) Its on days like today when you realise how superhuman the fitness levels of the pros are! Match itself was neck and neck, big serve and forehand vs big serve and forehand. Good to have Thomas back in group 1 where he belongs. "  -- Omar
Reveal CommentOmar Cader bt Pavlos Alexias (Jun 28) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Masses of kids, red balls, coaches, green balls, parents, grey balls, a vicious wind and a brittle back fence that takes your tennis ball and propels it 3 courts further down-its clapham common on a warm friday summers evening! It took a few games to focus on the actual match, once settled it became a question of who could return the others serve. Pavlos has a very good first and second delivery but i was just a bit more consistent in landing mine. Looking forward to next time in a slightly less busy environment, cheer Pavlos"  -- Omar
