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.

Player Comments:

  • "Wow!! What a match, that never got further ahead than 1 or 2 games. Every game was a tight and tough rally filled battle, with most of them going to deuce numerous times. Tom took a firsts set capitalising on some wayward play from me and getting me moving around the court. I took the second set after finally getting the forehand working and hitting some winners down the line. The third set was tight trading breaks and service games, but then suddenly at I was able to produce some strong and quick holds of server when I needed it at 4-4 and then at 5-4 after I had battled to get a break of serve. Was a great match Tom and a draw probably would have been a fair result. Look forward to the next round!"  -- David

Player Comments:

  • "A match that really swang back and forth. Starting in windy conditions I managed to get ahead early and keep my nose in front with lots of long games. Second set for turned on its head as the wind dropped and everything Claudio hit went in and everthing I hit went out!! Claudio went on a 9 game winning streak, winning the 2nd set and get 3-0 up in the 3rd. I managed to then get my act together and get back in to the match. But Claudio kept just out in front and I couldn't claw it back, misding 2 key points on my serve at 4-5. A great game, thank you Claudio. Hopefully we can play again and I will get you next time lol!!"  -- David

Player Comments:

  • "A really good match against a great opponent, the score didn't reflect the game! After a cagey first 5 games where both of us held serve and broke, I was able to hit a purple patch and push through to the first set. The second set was simular with Hesham unleashing some huge serves and taking the lead. But again I was able to just get back level and then get my nose in front at the right time to serve for the match. Great game Hesham and hope we play again soon!"  -- David

We then traded service game and a break each with Paul making some great defensive turned attacking returns, until I was able to break again and then hold out to take the 1st set. I then was able to hit a purple patch and ran away with the second set. But it was a great first game. Thank you Paul."  -- David

Andres really pushed me hard and almost completed a comeback in the 2nd set - I think I would have been toast had he levelled it as I was really starting to tire! But luckily I was just able to hold on and serve it out at my last opportunity! Thanks Andres, play again soon!"  -- Timothy
