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!

Player Comments:

  • "Good winter conditions. Dry, 7degrees and a good quality tennis court. Adrian was a good and tough opponent. His forehand sidespin is something I've never played against and really tough to counter because his shots were deep and the skidded instead of bouncing due to the technique. I look forward to another match with a fellow Irishman. "  -- Stephen

Player Comments:

Reveal CommentIvan Georgiev bt Henry Archer (Feb 4) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "It was very differnt match compare to the other I played in the group. Henry has very attacking style of play, so I could not get a chance to get in comfortable for me rhythm. Luckily I manage to break in last game of the first set, probably due to him getting a blister on the hand and having to serve more second serves."  -- Ivan
Reveal CommentIvan Georgiev bt Pravin Narasimhan (Jan 28) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "The scoreline does not do justice on the way the match went. We had to work hard in windy conditions to win each point Pravin got really good first serve and solid play from the baseline, I had to go out of my comfort zone and approach the net more often that i would like. Sadly in a second consecutive match my most point bringing shot was the mishit."  -- Ivan

The second set ray took very comfortable as his level rised and my shots went all over the place. The last set was a complete opposite of the second.
