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:

  • "It was another long, exhausting match with Alejandro. He was off with a great start winning easily the first set, but lost concertation on the second. It was a bit of roller-coaster final set, when the rallies were much longer as no one wanted to make errors, Alejandro led 3:1, then I managed to turn to 3:5. Unlucky for him in 3 occasions really long rallies end up with me winning after ball hitting the net. Better luck for the next matches!"  -- Ivan

The conditions were really hot and sunny and we were both quite tired by the end of the two sets. Michael has excellent ground shots and when his attacking game clicked he hit me off the park. I managed to win mainly by getting the ball back consistently in hot conditions. But Michael played the better tennis overall. Well played Michael, look forward to playing you again soon."  -- Nazim

Player Comments:

  • "Inga and Kenneth have played a few times before - and it has always been close, and it has always been a good match. This took everything one step further - in a fantastically good, fantastically close match - with many games (including nearly every game in the second set) going to deuce. With the third set tied at 3-3 and advantage switching back and forth in the seventh game, the match could so easily have gone either way. n the end, we were on court in the sunshine for 2 1/2 hours - with a brief moment of distraction as an enormous cruise ship appeared behind the nearby buildings as it sailed down the Thames! A great match, played in great, competitive spirit - thank you Inga, good luck for your other matches this summer!"  -- Kenneth
