Vertical Tabs

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.

  • "well played aidan. best game of tennis i've had in the league. 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

Player Comments:

  • "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
