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!

"Really enjoyed playing in Group 3. I feel I've improved my game since I first joined the league a few years ago, still got a lot to learn though. Playing in Group 2 will certainly be a tough test, though I'm looking forward to it," 

Stewart Campbell

"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

"A great event - its definitely not about winning but meeting new people who share the same passion for the sport and above all who love having fun on the tennis court. Thank you Sally and Nigel.", Stephen Reynolds

Stephen Reynolds

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

Ross Burnside
 
"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.",

Calum led by 5-2 in the 2nd and served for the match. That's when the fight back started. I won 5 games on the trot to win the set. We had amazing rallies and exchanges. In the 3rd also he led 5-3 but again I had to dig deep to repeat scoreline of 2nd set. It was a long tiring match but really enjoyed it.

Player Comments:

  • "Great match in sun, shade and the usual blustery wind at Kelvingrove. Miranda dominated the first set with some excellent running topspins that caused me all sorts of bother. Got off to a better start second set, it was neck and neck, some great shots and rallies, and I just managed to level the score and avoid the tie-break. Final set very even, served better but was also helped at crucial points by wind assists and at least three mishits that just dropped over the net. Thanks again, Miranda, good luck with the rest of your matches."  -- Sam

Player Comments:

  • "An epic and unfinished encounter at Knightswood saw a lot of deuce points and a lot of games that unfortunately went against serve. I came back from 3-1 down in the first set to get a game ahead but Jim kept equalling the score. Even the tie-break went back and forth. Second set Jim got in front and stayed there. The rain came on at the start of the 3rd set and it got a bit slippy. Weather permitting the match will be concluded on Saturday."  -- Sam
  • "Started at Knightswood on Monday, finished at Queen's Park on Saturday. I went from 3-1 down in the 1st to 4-3 up but Jim kept equalling the score. Even the tie-break went back and forth. 2nd set Jim got in front and stayed there. The rain came on at 1-1 in the 3rd and made the surface too slippy. In light rain at QP the balls still bounced well and I got 4-1 up before Jim got into his stride and began a comeback, including two games in a row without him conceding a point. At 4-5 the rain returned, Jim's serves sat up and allowed me to eke out a victory that also meant we just missed the rain get torrential. Good luck with the rest of your matches, Jim". -- Sam
Reveal CommentGordon Craig bt Jim Howie (Jun 12) 6-3, 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "A perfect evening for tennis at Queen's Park and another great match with Jim. The first set was tight with plenty of deuce games and swapped breaks of serve before I finally managed to get and consolidate a break. I slumped a bit at the start of the second set and went 3-0 down, but just managed to get back on serve. From there it was neck and neck until the tie break which could have gone either way. Thanks for the match Jim and good luck in your other games. "  -- Gordon
