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.

"So glad I joined the league. Although disappointing not to have played well enough to have won a set or match I'm undeterred. Played with some very encouraging and kind players had a great workout and enjoyed playing in the great outdoors. Calthorpe Park is a great venue. Thank you so much for all the organisation - I really appreciate it. I look forward to improving my game and tasting success hopefully soon!"

Collapse AllFleet Singles - Round 10 | Thursday 13 September 2018 to Wednesday 7 November 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 10 October 2018)

It was great to receive more entries and be able to run an extra group this round and hence to see more tennis played in Fleet! We welcomed 3 new players to the league as well as several returning league players so it was a nice mix of new and old! Thanks to all of you for your efforts in scheduling matches and leaving match commentaries, we always enjoy reading them as they reveal so much more than the scorelines alone. Here's to the next round!

Group Summary:

This was an exciting group with most players completing at least 4 matches and the winner Pancha recording 5 wins. Pancha had to work hard for his win over runner up Claudio, just holding on to win the second set tiebreak 8-6 and prevent it going to a third. Pancha's defeat came at the hands of Jonathan who himself showed great tenacity to win in two tiebreak sets. It was a strong round for Richard in third place too, amassing 3 wins including a 3-setter against Claudio which "couldn't have been closer." Great tennis!

Final Rankings:

  1. Pancha Pun [W5, L1] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Claudio Nold 9.2 [W2, L2] 7 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Richard Honeysett [W3, L1] 6

Despite a bit controversial match,I really enjoyed it.I do respect Jonathan n his tennis skill n would like to congratulate n hope to see him on next round."  -- Pancha

Group Summary:

Congratulations to league debutant Dambar in topping the group in fine style, winning 5 matches and finishing 2 points clear of runner up Stephen. Dambar didn't drop a set en route to the group win, and in fact the group's only 3 set match was Stephen's win from behind against Chris. Everyone except Andy completed 5 matches and many of you earned the midway bonus points for early match scheduling, so it was a great effort all round!

  1. Dambar Bahadur Pun [W5] 10 WINNER
  2. Stephen Jackson 9.2 [W4, L1] 8 RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

It was very close at the top of Group 3 with bonus points proving crucial in edging Ben clear of runner up James by 2 points, although it was James who won their head to head. Ben completed one extra match and his early scheduling skills helped him past the winning post, and he recorded a win against Dorota on his birthday too! Dorota's "mean passing shots and lobs" were noted by James while Ben had to take on Julie's "demon serve"... so well played ladies too!

Group Summary:

There was close competition between Sajid and Sreejesh for the top spot in this group but Sajid prevailed with 5 wins including crucially their head to head - though he will be disappointed that two of them were walkovers. Third placed Tom played well to force his match against Sreejesh to a deciding set with the second set tiebreak lasting 15 minutes! Sreejesh's spin proved tricky for Sajid and Angela's cross court forehand was admired by Sreejesh... so there was good quality tennis across the group!
