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.

This has been an extremely exciting way to get into tennis. 5 months I've been playing now and I can't get enough of it. I learn so much from all the different opponents. Thanks to all of you

Dwayne Wint

"It has been a really enjoyable experience. I would like to sign up again please," 

Jason

At the end of the match we both reflected on what a fantastic league system you guys have going, I truly hope it runs at least as long as I am able to chase the ball :) Thank you

Dimitri B

I had a lovely time playing in round one. And, I would definitely play in round two. Count me in!

"Loved playing, it was great fun, and met some nice people" 

Stephen

It's been a great experience participating in these leagues in the last two years; I feel  part of a League Family. But sadly it might be my last round as I'll be moving abroad.

Collapse AllEnfield Parks Singles - Round 39 | Thursday 11 October 2018 to Wednesday 5 December 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 7 November 2018)

Thanks to everyone who got involved in the last round of 2018 in Enfield. There was a generally a good turnout with groups one and two getting on court for many competitive matches, though it would have been great to see more activity in group three. Hope to see you next time for more tennis in the new year!

Group Summary:

Alex lost out to Cosmin in an epic encounter in his first match of the round, but he recovered from this in the best way possible, fighting hard to win his next six and scoring bonus points to pull well clear in first place. A shout out to Nicky who was as close as it comes to defeating the new champ in a classic three setter contest. Cosmin carried on his fine form throughout the round, emerging victorious from the other three matches he played too to finish as the runner up, so what might have happened had he played a few more?

Final Rankings:

  1. Alex Papas 9.1 [W6, L1] 15 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Cosmin Matei [W4] 10 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

Sean C demonstrated how playing your matches more often than not leads to success, as he notched up four wins out of six and bagged bonus points to finish well clear in the number one spot. Sean S beat his namesake Sean C in a "really tough" final match of the round (hope you've stopped aching), and with a couple of other victories to his name too he clinches the silver. Kudos to Jonathan for also beating the new champ in a marathon match and to Marcin and Sean for coming close in three set thrillers.

Group Summary:

This was an unusual group, where unfortunately walkovers had a big part to play on the outcome. A reminder that walkovers can only be claimed if a match is cancelled (possibly by a “no show”) with less than 24 hours’ notice and that these do not count towards bonus points. Sympathies with Alex who finishes with four walkovers, and as a result of these cancellations and a win over Ulas he moves to the top of the table. Ulas and Vannessa's "brilliant match-up" demonstrated why getting matches played is the best option for everyone. Here's to more tennis next time!

Final Rankings:

  1. Alex Sales 10.2 [W5] 10 WINNER
  2. Vannessa Garcia 9.1 [W1, L2] 3 RUNNER UP
