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.

"The round for me was very enjoyable I enjoyed playing and meeting new people and making new friends to play tennis with, I can't wait to get started again on January 14th in the next round,"
Cameron Sim

"First time playing in an organised league since school days.  Enjoyed all my matches, looking forward to the next round.", 

Gerard Boyle

"Absolutely loved it. Great idea, and fantastic to meet new players from the area. Looking forward to the next round!  Thanks!", 

Ross Burnside

Just read your email Sally. Genuinely emotional to hear you're leaving us (and that's coming from someone who's wife calls him "Spock"). The league(and therefore you) have made the last 8 years so much more fun, and helped when I had a wee wobbly patch a year ago. I hope you're going on to even greater things and hopefully you get the recognition you deserve. I tell everyone in my club about the league as I believe it's a fantastic way for players like me to get competitive without getting humiliated! All the best for the future. Blair

"I really enjoyed the experience of playing in the league. It was exactly what I was looking for, regular games, a good workout and that bit of competition to spur you on. I will definitely continue to play in the league and have encouraged a couple of friends to throw their hats in the ring (or racquets on court). I feel that my game has improved because of playing in the league and hope this continues also,"

Robert Graha

"Really glad I joined. Great way to meet new players,"

Brian Rainey

Player Comments:

  • "Solid match but I faded away somewhat in the second set perhaps as a result of struggling to get a read on Kevin's very good sliced serve so I wasn't as competitive as I would have hoped to have been but a deserved win for Kevin"  -- Barnaby
Reveal CommentShaun WEBB bt Wendy Rankin (Dec 21) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Fun match with a lot of close games going to deuce. Wendy has a devastating slice and a skilful lob that had me chasing the ball all around the court. Several games decided by balls catching the edge of a line or the net tape so could have been a very different score. Look forward to a rematch some time. "  -- Shaun
Reveal CommentCraig Moyes bt Wendy Rankin (Dec 20) 5-7, 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Great match which was close from the outset. Weather conditions were slightly challenging at times with rain, sun, and hail! 1st set was very evenly matched with Wendy edging it before Craig took 5-0 lead in 2nd set with Wendy finding her for again and pulling back to 4-5. Third set went mostly with serve before a very long last game which went to deuce at least 10 times. Evenly matched and could have gone to either player. "  -- Craig

Reveal CommentCraig Moyes bt Shaun WEBB (Dec 17) 6-4, 6-7 (3-7), 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "An epic match with both players evenly matched throughout. 1st set went with serve apart from early break against Shaun. Shaun raced to a 3-0 lead in the 2nd set with the majority of the rest going with serve, before Shaun dominated tie-break to take the set. 3rd set was tit-for-tat, with a break in serve to close out match 6-4. The match could have went either way all the way through and was a most enjoyable battle."  -- Craig

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable game played on a lovely sunny morning. Colin was unfortunate to take a heavy fall early on in the match which I think threw his game off a bit. If it weren't for the slip then I think the match would have been a lot closer. He certainly rattled a lot of winners past me as we rallied afterwards. "  -- Daniel

Player Comments:

  • "An epic 3 Hr match. After overnight snow match looked in doubt but Courts were swept and surprisingly playable with the thin layer of snow helping close lines calls .. First set was very tight and I managed to edge it before Brian murdered me 6-0 in the 2nd. It wasn’t even close. Brian was up 4-1 in 3rd set before his game dropped and I managed to get it back to 4-4. At 6-5 floodlights timed out (had also happened earlier and took 10 mins to switch back on) and we agreed to play on with light from surrounding courts. Match went to a tie break which I managed to scrape through. Great to get a match during the holidays. Good luck Brian in rest of your matches. "  -- Charlie
