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.

Player Comments:

  • "Playing German you know you are in for a battle and today was no exception. A very hard fought match with some great long rallies and plenty of deuce games. German started the brighter and took a 4-3 lead before Jeff responded and with two breaks of serve and a nervy hold Jeff did enough to take the first set 6-4. Jeff started the brighter in the second set to take a 2-0 lead before German fought back to level at 2-2. Jeff then took control by taking the next 3. German pulled one back before Jeff held his serve to take the set and match. A very enjoyable game played in great spirit. "  -- Jeff

Player Comments:

  • "A closer match than the score suggests with virtually every game going to deuce, lots of break points and actual breaks of serve. The first set went with serve to 3-3, then a break, a hold and another break from Gavin took it. The second set was a case of who could hold their serve with four breaks of serve to 2-2. Then two nervy holds and to close breaks from Gavin took the match. A very tense match with lots of long rallies and some lovely winning shots from both players."  -- Gavin
