Vertical Tabs

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!"

Group Summary:

Could anyone stop Pancha winning another Group One title we asked last time. And the answer it seems is, no!

Well done to Richard for taking a set off Pancha and to Claudio for coming closest in the points chase and earning the silver. Here's to the next one!

Group Summary:

Tim triumphed in Group Three last time and came very close to achieving the double this time. But in the end Oliver D was just too strong and is a deserved winner of the group, winning all his matches in straight sets! In the absence of Oliver W, every single match was played, and every one had a commentary. Well done all!

Player Comments:

  • "Epic battle, thanks so much Ben for a fantastic match. The conditions were challenging with a strong, fluky wind blowing across the court. The first set was the match in microcosm, a roller coaster which went to a tie break which I edged 7-4. After getting my hopes up by dropping his opening service game, Ben ran away with the second set, playing some delicate drop shots and a few effective lobs as he dealt with the conditions better. The third set went the other way though, Ben saving a handful of match points at 2-5 before coming back to level at 5-5, at which point we were both running on fumes- and I think then I just got lucky!"  -- Tim

Group Summary:

There was one really strong candidate for the "Match of the Group", the excellent showdown between Graham and Sreejesh. It was a great match and quite a moment for Graham, "as Sree was the first person I played in the league (and I lost 6-0, 6-0 that time)". Long may this great rivalry continue. The match settle the rankings with Graham taking gold this time and Sreejesh the silver. Tom was close behind with three nice wins to earn the bronze. All but one match was played in the group and thank you all for that.

Final Rankings:

  1. Graham Davies [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Sreejesh Radhakrishnan [W4, L1] 11 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Tom Fane [W3, L2] 6
