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.

"Your leagues are a God-send in terms of finding people to play against"

"Thank you so much for this league it has been brilliant... it is the enjoyment of playing a wonderful game with like minded people!"

 "It has been a pleasure to play in your leagues over the years and I would like to thank you for organising and looking after us so well,"

Thomas Rupp

"Just wanted to say that, although it wasn't my most successful, this last league was, I think, the most enjoyable I've played in.. Every game was pretty evenly matched, everyone was capable of beating each other and everyone played fairly and in a great spirit (I've already played a couple of the blokes again just for fun...and of course, outside of league competition, won both!). As long as the games are close & fair you can't ask for more," 

Brian Downey

" Many thanks to both of you for organising this great event. Great fun! "

Luis

"Looking forward to the next round already. Cheers, and keep up the good work. Much appreciated"
