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.

"A brief note to say a huge thank you to you both for all your fantastic work in organising the local tennis leagues. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all my matches, come win or lose. Each one has been played in the spirit of the game and against interesting and friendly opposition,"

Piers Loxton Edwards

"I am quite chuffed to have won my group as I have not played competitive singles for such a long time.  Thanks once again for your work in organising this tournament. It is a testament to your work that it is so popular and provides a good level of competition in a friendly environment,"

Alex Smith

"It’s been really good to find players in my area and get some much needed match practice"

Vlad Seitan

"Tony played very well and hit some really amazing winners. It was a close match, especially in the second set, and I really enjoyed it!"

"Also I just wanted to say what a great round (my 7th!) this has been! Great spirit and effort from all players. I usually sit out the winter round but am really fired up and can't wait to play again! Kind regards and thank you! Keep up all your hard work"

Don McGill

"A very enjoyable round, which wasn't decided until the final set of the final match"

James Mower

Player Comments:

  • "Due to the rain before, the tiger turf of Hurlingham Park was like playing on a wet carpet. The water spraying off the ball was clear to see. And the gusts of winds tended to take the ball where you didn't want it to go. So conditions were a challenge but a highly entertaining and enjoyable match. Some games were fairly epic and the scoreline certainly doesn't indicate the battle. Hope to play again."  -- Angus
