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.

Collapse AllFrome Singles - Round 15 | Thursday 18 June 2020 to Wednesday 22 July 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 8 July 2020)

It was great to see friendly, competitive tennis return to the courts of Frome Tennis League after lockdown and congratulations to most of you for getting 4 matches played and hitting the ground running! Also, as we launched with just 6 players and the round ran for 5 weeks you'll each receive 50% off the next round (just login to the site and visit your Coupons tab to see your coupon code)... which we hope is the perfect incentive for you to continue your post-lockdown tennis!

Group Summary:

It was a winning debut in the Leagues for Jed who finished top of the group without dropping a set... what a performance! Hot on his heels was James making a debut in Frome Tennis League and winning 3 competitive matches, his only defeat coming against Jed. Joel earned the group's only bonus points by being quick off the mark with his match scheduling, clearly keen to hit the courts again after lockdown!

Thinking I was on my to victory, I faced some aggressive play by Paul which turned the match on it's head and he won 6 games in a row to come back and take the 2nd set 6-3!
