This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • 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. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • 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
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • 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 voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Collapse AllDundee Singles - Round 15 | Thursday 29 August 2019 to Wednesday 23 October 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 25 September 2019)

Over 60% of matches were played in the round, so well done for that. It is great to see so many regular and returning players. Some of our leagues would take a break now till after Christmas, but we know that you in Dundee are made of more determined stuff! Hope you can join the winter round (it lasts for ten weeks) and if you can, please do spread the word.

Group Summary:

With Darren clocking up his fifth Dundee group win, the search really is on for someone to have a go at toppling him from the top spot. This round it was Nathan who got closest to beating the champ - their match went the distance. But Nathan didn't have quite the consistency to press for a podium spot. Second place actually went to JP who, like Gavin in third place, had three wins. Well done Darren and what will happen next time?

Player Comments:

  • "Great match against a great player. One of those matches that makes me appreciate tennis and the competitive nature of the sport. I had a 4-1 lead first set but Nathan reeled off 5 successive games to win it 6-4, didn't play particularly badly just a tough match. A set down but I kept positive throughout and found a way to dig in and win important points. Some fantastic rallies. My defence was effective, even managed to stay in points when Nathan was at the net or had smash put aways. I also went to the net a few times and made the volleys putting pressure on Nathan to pass me at the net. All in all a great match with lots of momentum swings, happy to win a tough match. Well played Nathan and good luck. "  -- Darren

Player Comments:

  • "I played my usual solid game tonight where as JP went for more pace on his shots. The nature of the beast that errors will come if you play high risk shots. JP also mixed it up a bit as he came to the net a couple of points but thankfully I managed to hit some good passing shots, although I also remember dumping one forehand into the bottom of the net! Overall a consistent match from me, thanks for the match JP and good luck rest of the round."  -- Darren

Group Summary:

A second group win for Kenneth, but it was a close run thing. Both Kenneth and Aidan won three and lost one, but Kenneth picked up an important point in his defeat to Daniel, and that was enough to seal the group win leaving Aidan the silver. Paul finished level on points with Daniel but thanks to victory in their head-to-head pips Daniel to the bronze.

Player Comments:

  • "Conditions were tough today. Earlier deluge made the courts wet and the balls really soggy and heavy so was difficult to get any action on our shots. That made for long punishing rallies and many a lengthy deuce game. Nothing in this contest, was point for point, game for game pretty much all the way. Shame there had to be a winner. I got the breaks in both tiebreakers and struck lucky with my shots at the right times. Thanks again Aidan for making it an enjoyable game despite the dreary conditions. "  -- Kenneth

  • "Absolutely epic match against Kenny today. Just a shame one of us had to lose. "  -- Daniel
  • "Was very dramatic match today at Baxter Park. Momentum get shifting back and forth. Danny 2 points from victory in 2nd set tiebreaker at 5-2. Thought that was it but won the next 5 points to take it to a third with somewhat jammy net cord, yikes, sorry. Started raining midway third set and we were still pounding it back and forth an hour later. Think I had chances at 5-4 (3 times I had match point). Then Danny sealed it in the next 2 games. Was impressed with Danny's court coverage today. Well played, much deserved win for Danny. Thanks," -- Kenneth

REAL tennis at both ends. no pushing, just thrashing it back and forward. too much pushing going on in this league. lost in straight sets but don't mind losing when i've been in a REAL match. let's get a ban on pushing and see how the pushers do!!!!!!!! go for your shots pushers. a donkey can stand there all day hitting it back and forth, up the centre of the court, and not going for anything!"  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "Fantastic game of tennis today at the recently refitted courts. Weather conditions were although wet courts made movement tricky in the 1st set. The second game of the second set proved to be a crucial moment. Must have been getting on for 20 minutes, that incredible game, and was worried how I would keep it going physically. Just scraped that one, giving me a useful 2 game cushion. Was tough to see the match out as Paul bounced back pushing me right to the end. Was a relief to finally get that precious match point as my legs had really gone by that point. Was a gruelling 2 hours. Really well played Paul, unbelievable recoveries at times from seemingly impossible positions. Look forward to the rematch," -- Kenneth

Group Summary:

Elliot made hay while the sun (sometimes) shone, winning all his fixtures and like all but one of the others adding bonus points to his tally. James takes second place with three excellent wins of his own, and as Elliot nicely pointed out, the scoreline in his match with James was misleadingly one sided. Looks like some fun matches were played in the group!

Final Rankings:

  1. Elliot Hay [W4] 10 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. James Morrison [W3, L1] 8 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

This was no walkover over though and a couple of points the other way would have seen me facing a third and by no means predictable set. Well played David!"  -- James

  • "Thanks Steve it was a good game in the sun. However I think Steve tired during the second set. First set almost every game went to Duce with Steve coming back from, I think, 3-0 down. My serving was pretty poor today and Steve played well in the first set, other 2 sets felt closer then the score would suggest. "  -- Remo
