Revision information
Provide an explanation of the changes you are making. This will help other authors understand your motivations.

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 happy with my tennis at the moment and the league has been a perfect way to steadily improve my standard. many thanks again to yourself Sally and the team :)"

Luther Wainwright

"I loved playing in the league (thanks for organising!)" 

Robin H

"Well organised, yet again!"

"I had vacillated about joining a league for quite a while and I'm glad I did. It was a friendlier experience than I'd expected - I was ready for disputed line calls and broken racquets but that never happened! The winter weather was obviously a challenge throughout and I'm looking forward to balmier games - although they'll probably be balmy defeats for me in league 1…A suggestion would be a table ranking the local courts for quality and facilities, based on players' feedback. Thanks for all your work to make this enjoyable for us,"

Jay Lalljee

"Well-done for organising such a wonderful tournament. It's been great, fun and exciting. Honestly, I am really enjoying this and don't want it to finish.I will also take this opportunity to say I am really enjoying the league and may it continue!"

"A big thank you to you and Nigel for organising and running the leagues which can be no small task,"

Zac Sargusingh

  • "Really close game in bright sunshine. Jack's first in the league and my first in a few months, so both took a little while to get into the swing. Two very close sets though, and after gradually managing to get to some of Jack's lightning serves back I just managed to just edge them. "  -- Stuart
