This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

Player Comments:

  • "We played at Hazelwood TC on a clay in good weather conditions. It was a close start up to 3:3 and none of us could hold the serve due to some windy gusts. I manage to hold my serve only once in the first set and won it 6:3. Richard made too many unforced errors in a second and I kept my nerve to claim the match. Thank you Richard, hope to play you again soon. "  -- Alex

Player Comments:

  • "A great game played in sunshine with a clear blue sky and little wind. Both sets were closely fought with some great rallies. James raced into a 3-0 lead in the first set but I managed to claw my way back to take the set 6-4. The second set started in a similar manner although this time James went into an early 4-0 lead. Again I managed to hang on in there and finished the set 7-5. The key difference at the end of the day was me having a slight edge in terms of fitness which was tested in the blistering heat. Thank you James for an enjoyable afternoon."  -- David

Player Comments:

  • "Simon was getting stronger as the match went on and we had some good rallies. Both of us became so focussed on our shots and point play in the penultimate game, which went back and forth and lasted just long enough for us both to lose track of the game score - at least I think it was the penultimate game.

Player Comments:

  • "A close and enjoyable match with some good rallies and plenty of deuce games. Hugo started the second set strongly but John just edged it with a bit more consistency towards the end. Played on a lovely spring morning at Arnos Park - fingers crossed for more of the same in the coming weeks! "  -- John
Reveal CommentPrakash Patel bt Hugo Joyce (Apr 6) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Able to set up an evening match with some decent weather. The first set went against service strangely and the person who could hold their serve ended up winning the set. The second set rallies seemed longer but the balance of play began to edge my way as the evening light began to fade. With a bit more regular play I can see Hugo's game improving lots. The final set score line does not do justice to his potential. Looking forward to playing you again."  -- Prakash

Player Comments:

  • "What a match!! Graham came back from 4 - 1 behind to level it at 4 - 4 and go on to take the set 7-5. In the second set I found myself trailing 4 - 1 behind. I had to do 'a Graham' if I was to get back into the set. Lo and behold the scores were then leveled at 4- 4. I went on to mirror Grahams achievements in the first set by taking the second 7 -5. The last set could have gone either way and both of us had got our serves in full swing. Our ground strokes were sending the ball closer and closer within the base line too but the balance was shifting in my favour as I took a 4 - 1 lead. Could it be deja vous for a 3rd time? I had to continue to put more pressure on the stalwart resistance from Graham which faded to a 6-2 final set. Thx mate."  -- Prakash
Reveal CommentJohn Williams bt Graham Baker (Mar 18) 4-6, 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks to Graham for playing despite unpromising conditions. Having swept the snow off the court at Arnos Park we only had the cold and gusty wind to worry about and enjoyed a close match that could have gone either way. John took the first 3 games but Graham stormed back strongly to take the first set. The second included many deuces with John winning a couple of key games to level the match and then taking the decider after a tight start. A good match and great to get it played in the circumstances. "  -- John
