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!

Daleen Eloff

"I really enjoyed playing and I will definitely try to play again and defend my title!"

David Jahoda

"Loved it. Brilliant that you are able to localise where others couldn't. I only learned to play in August (although I have 2 -3 lessons a week) and this league has really helped me perfect my strokes",

Simon Prokter

"This round was a great experience. I have learnt a lot playing with different players, always adapting my game to the different styles. I am really happy with the results because my opponents were great players: they play consistently and smartly. I am just happy that I managed to play powerfully and focused. I had great time! I do believe the league is a great thing because you both improve your game, you have fun and you also meet great people on the way!"

Player Comments:

  • "In the first set, I found good shots whereas Konsta struggled to find the right distance and get into the match. After few games, my serve started to be effective and I have been able to close the set comfortably. On the second set, Konsta went up to 3-0 changing his game . I had to adapt my game to recover and finally win it. Konsta was visibly tired from previous day (he played another league match) so he run out of stamina at some point. Nevertheless, great match and it was a pleasure to meet you and talk to you Konsta! We'll keep in touch and play again when possible. Thanks!"  -- Marco

At 5-3 in the first set I saved myself from two break points to finally take it after 8 long-fought deuces. Then in the very next game in the second set we fought it out over 5 deuces. Sophie plays with a lot of power and great control. The only thing that let her down was a number of double faults. Thanks for the match Sophie!"  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "What a curious experience playing at Ropemaker's Field was!! Serving toward a tower block (from the southern end) and what resembled a mini-crowd barrier rather than a net!! Fiona is new to tennis and her aim for this round was to win one game so now she is going to have to reassess her objectives!! Judging by some of her forehand winners, she certainly has the ability and enthusiasm to. No double faults, either! I was very impressed with her level, given she is a beginner. All the very best with your remaining matches, Fiona, and you are doing absolutely the right thing in order to improve i.e. playing more matches."  -- Jamal
