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!

"Thanks for your organisation of the league. I think it's a great idea and since the round finished I've played and have games planned against previous opponents - which is what I and everyone else seems to recognise as one the best benefits from the league"

“MANY THANKS for arranging the Wimbledon ballot and making me one of the lucky winners!!! You are just great! Not only you guys got me back to playing loads of tennis again and meeting really nice people but thanks to the Local Tennis Leagues I’ll be able to go to Wimbledon for first time ever!! Unfortunately I couldn't make it to the pub tonight as I had a tennis match, but hopefully I'll meet you guys next time,” 

David Rosa Casado

Player Comments:

  • "What an epic! Not sure what Carlos had for breakfast but he turned up with his A game and then some! I was getting zilcho free points in the first set and I was forced into hitting some monster forehands...but they were all coming back with interest! I couldn't keep on whacking the ball as my arm was beginning to fall off and Carlos was finding his timing and rhythm. 2nd set I had to dig myself out of trouble from 3-0 down, and then faced a match point which I managed to save to bring it to a tie-break which thankfully I won. No time for a decider set so we played a tie-break...needless to say at that point neither of us wanted to lose so there was some nervy tennis played! Thankfully I managed to squeak it. Great game!

  • "Unlike myself, John showed true bottle and fight on the critical points to come back from big deficits in both sets and push me all the way.

Player Comments:

  • "The score doesn't lie! This was insanely close and pretty grueling for us both... We both struggled to keep our nose in front but Rorie did get a 4-2 lead in both sets, only for me to level straight back to 4-4. The close of both sets got pretty nervy with some long rallies and games won by the narrowest of margins. Loads of deuces and it was impossible to see who would win this up until the final point. Rorie can feel extremely unlucky not to have picked up at least a point here - but I think we were both relieved when the match was finally over and we could sit down!"  -- Alex
Reveal CommentAlex Beaumont bt David Jenkins (Sep 22) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A strange match - at 1-4 down in first set I looked dead and buried, and seemed like Dave was going to walk it. And then the match completely turned! After getting my eye in on his big serve and forced some longer rallies, I got right back in. And then won 11 consecutive games to win the match! My consistency was the decider but on another day dave could have beaten me - he played some great shots, and a big serve, so when he ups the consistency he'll be a tough opponent to play!"  -- Alex

Player Comments:

  • "After each of today's opponents having won their first match in the new round, there was no clear favorite in this match. The first ball exchanges already gave an idea of the high standard of both players. However, Caroli's strength in his serve in combination with his consistency of balls played in longer ralleys made him stay ahead of his opponent during most of the match. His next opponents will have to find a way of dealing with those strengths which made Caroli already win two groups in a row."  -- David
