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.

Collapse AllCorby Singles - Round 6 | Thursday 21 September 2017 to Wednesday 15 November 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 18 October 2017)

It was another bumper group in Corby Tennis League, with some 3 set thrillers and lots of generous commentaries showing that you've enjoyed your tennis, which is what the leagues are all about! There was great engagement too with nearly 97% of all possible matches played, so that's a tremendous effort... thanks everyone!

Group Summary:

It was a great debut in the league for Przemyslaw who won the group in commanding style with 6 wins and no defeats, finishing one point clear of runner up Ruth. Roberto had a strong round too, pushing Ruth all the way but her superior scheduling skills in getting 3 matches played before the midway point made the difference. Kudos to Roberto for winning their head to head, a tough 3 setter which Ruth narrowly lost [9-11] in the third set tiebreak. Some great tennis all round!

Final Rankings:

  1. Przemyslaw Gorecki 10.1 [W6] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Ruth Morcombe [W5, L2] 13 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
