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:

  • "I really enjoyed meeting Tom and playing a great match. We had some really long, tight games and awesome rallies. We were well matched and the wind was quite strong at times so I think anything could have happened. Tom was able to get quite a few unbelievable angles on his forehand so I'll watch out for next time! "  -- Tom

Player Comments:

  • "Bit slippy underfoot and muddy balls didn't help either of us today but at least we did manage to play, as at one point I didn't think we'd be able to! Daniel had a couple of good spells today, especially towards the end of each set, but luckily I managed to see them both out in the end. Thanks Daniel"  -- Timothy

Reveal CommentTom Rubie bt Paul Murana (Aug 4) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Some ridiculous rallies in this match. I was desperate to even up the head to head between me and Paul and I think that gave me the edge on the more drawn out games. It was a lot tighter than the score suggests and I certainly felt like I was having to do a lot of running to stay in the points. I had a real laugh with Paul and can't wait for the next match we play. "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentDavid Barlow bt Andres Montes de Oca (Jul 30) 6-0, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Lots of deuce games in this one! Tom really mixed up his shot selection to keep me guessing and got some very nice spin on the ball. Luckily I just managed to edge more of the deuce/advantage points today and that was the only difference really, as shown by the fact that he won the practice set we had after! Cheers Tom"  -- Timothy

At 6-1 and 4-2 in the second I stupidly lost total concentration, Tom uped his game and before I knew it, I was being run all over the court and losing the second set! Set three I had to dig in and really concentrate on the tennis I was playing and battled to win the set and match. Tom fort really hard and has a knack of getting everything back, forcing another shot. Thanks for the game Tom, thoroughly enjoyed it. "  -- David

Player Comments:

  • " Some good rallies today! Result not reflective of the contest that this was, especially in the opening set when I only got a break in very lucky fashion when Andres kindly put one of my worst shots of the day into the net! It proved to be the turning point - no doubt next time the luck will be reversed. Many thanks"  -- Timothy
