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.

As always the round was very enjoyable. I played some old competitors and met some new. Local Tennis Leagues is a wonderful way of meeting new people to play tennis with. I feel my game is improving in every department as I get to play so many players with different styles and strengths

Amer Jahangir

I started playing in the league in 2008/09 and immediately realised what a fantastic concept this is. I played tennis, met new people, made friends - some of which I have continued playing with even outside of the league. Registration and admin element is simple, efficient and extremely well run by Nigel and Sally. This round again was a pleasure - as always

Amer

Thank you for organising this league. As someone who has just moved into the area, it gave me an opportunity to get out, play some tennis and meet new people

Thanks so much for running the leagues. I've had a great time playing in them in the past 4 years or so

Stuart Purchase

I believe that Local Tennis League is a novel and wonderful concept. I have found a lot of tennis partners and friends through this league. What I like the most, is the luxury and independence of playing in my own time

Amer Jahangir

"Many thanks for organising this league and I had a great time, especially meeting so many nice people"

Collapse AllEnfield Parks Singles - Round 41 | Thursday 4 April 2019 to Wednesday 29 May 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 1 May 2019)

A bit of a mixed turnout in this round with some players making it onto court for lots of matches and others not really getting going. Many of the matches played were very competitive affairs with numerous three set thrillers appearing on the scoreboards of the three groups. Thanks for all your efforts and we hope to see you again next time for more tennis throughout the summer!

Group Summary:

Martin played more matches than anyone else and scored bonus points, and this proved to be a successful strategy as he picked up three hard fought wins and a point from a "midweek thriller" with Sean to boost his total into the lead. Brian pips Nicky to the runner up spot after bonus points are removed, but could he have gone one better if he had played a couple more?

Final Rankings:

  1. Martin Harrisson [W3, L2] 9 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Brian Mcgurk 10.2 [W3] 6 RUNNER UP
  3. Nicky Kirk 9.1 [W2, L2] 6 includes 2 bonus points

Player Comments:

  • "Martin came back very well in the first set to get to a tie break after being 4-1 down. He started to hit some outright winners on the forehand, lobbed well and produced consistent volleys at the net - very hard to pass. I thought he would take second set after leading 3-0 and producing some more unreachable shots. Always a pleasure to play against thanks for the match Martin. "  -- Tim

Group Summary:

More than half of the matches went the distance in this well contested group two - well played everyone. Daniel was the dominant force at the top, notching up a near clean sweep of wins to put space between himself and the rest of the group. Robin's stamina was put to the test in this round with all of his matches going to a third set decider, and despite missing out on a victory the four sets he won combined with his scheduling prowess sees him sneak into second place.

The set was evenly balanced at 4-3 before I managed to see the match out. An excellent performance from Marcel given his return to tennis. His forehand shot is of a very high standard, Whilst he was struggling with his serve in the first set this also showed much improvement in the second set. Marcel should be very proud of his performance and just needs to keep playing. Good luck Marcel."  -- David
