Vertical Tabs

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!

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

Just wanted to say thank you for the tennis balls which I received today. It is the first time I've played  in the league and I am enjoying it.  Everyone I've met with so far has been very friendly and I hope to meet up and play more with some of them. Thanks again

Triss Frangou

"I enjoyed playing competitive tennis singles matches against good people at Arnos Park, a venue where I played in excess of 100 football matches. Thanks again to everybody involved in making Local Tennis Leagues the best run sporting organisation I am involved with, or aware of,"

Bruce Stallard

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

This is my last time in the league as I am going back to my country. I enjoyed the league a lot. Thank you Sally Kinnes and Nigel Billen for doing such a great job and thank to all the guys that played with me, you are all awesome. Thanks,

Aaron Wangsa

A quick note to acknowledge that the way you run the leagues is great and at the same time affordable, for that a big thank you!

From the match comments, it is clear that lots of friendships were made in this league over some competitive tennis and some truly great sportsmanship was displayed. Lots of newcomers made a huge effort to get their matches played and we're excited to see how the group standings change as you learn more about your opponents and practice the great game of tennis; here's to the next round, Enfield!

Group Summary:

Alex was the only one to gain bonus points and ran away with the title, amassing 10 points after having had a break from the league, what a comeback! Runner up Andres (newcomer) managed to win both of his matches and it would have been interesting to see what would have happened should he have managed to play some more, it was certainly a great start to the league! Welcome back to Samuel Elliott, George and Tose too after your short break from the league. Alex and George have formed a new found bromance, we are pleased to have matched you two together, do keep us updated on how your bromance develops, it's clearly a lovely group to play in!

George played very well throughout, and today was one of these days when my tennis was also very good. The score of this 3 hours’ game could had gone either way!

Group Summary:

A close battle for the top spot in this round saw Alex just clinch the win despite just having recovered from the flu! Second and third places were earned by Tim and Brian who finished on the same amount of points but Tim managed to win their head to head which just gave him the edge in the number of sets he won. Welcome to Fernando who had a great match against our overall winner who managed to just win it in the 3rd set after a very close tiebreak. Some in the group struggled to organise matches in this group but it looks like it could have been down to the weather conditions! If there's anything we can do to help the scheduling, bar maybe controlling the weather, then please get in touch!

Player Comments:

  • "We nearly called it off before starting (21/01/18) , but as there had been such limited opportunities to get matches underway in this round, a determined effort was made to play some tennis in challenging conditions. Starting off freezing and a little wet before facing sleet that turned to snow and then back to persistant rain we then decided that was enough after one set, drenched right through both retired grateful to be out of it & heading home for warmth and a very welcome hot shower and sensibly returned to finish at a later date (04/02/18) ! Not one to forget for sure. Thanks Alex for hosting the match. "  -- Tim

Player Comments:

  • "Starting off on (14/01/2018) at Victoria Park we were lucky to get one remaining court but only got part way through the second set as allocated time ran out. Brian was putting in some useful lobs to gain a bit of ground. Took a further 3 weeks to meet up and complete at a different venue - Arnos Park where the courts right now could do with a dose of Moss Mould Lichen & Algae Remover "  -- Tim

We managed to complete the match with either of those conditions popping back up, That's a success in itself! It was an enjoyable match with some interesting rallies. Graham was particularly sharp on my second serve return. It was a pleasure playing with you, Graham, keep looking after that calf!"  -- Alex

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Christopher J who won this group, the only person to earn bonus points too! Chris J had a very close match with Maj where he lost the first set 6-1 but managed to somehow turn it around after channelling his inner Cameron Norrie to win the next two, 6-1, 6-4; Maj managed to turn it around during his match against Duc which meant that Maj came in second. Welcome to Chris M to our leagues, looks like you had a great match against the eventual winner, let's see what the next round has in store! Some in the group struggled to get matches organised, so please do let us know if there is anything we can do to help so that you can meet more of the group and get some more great tennis played!
