  • 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.
  • Players are grouped by 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 tie break 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 grouped according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Everyone in the group plays each other once during the round
  • You get one point for each set you win
  • 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 each group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winners get a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of the groups (and sometimes the top two) are promoted for the next round; those who come bottom (and sometimes the bottom two) are demoted

"​​I have thoroughly enjoyed myself and will definitely do it again and encourage all my friends to take part​,"​

Guy Szablewski

 "Thanks a lot for organising the round. I met some very nice people. Hope to be back after the summer!"

 

"Thanks for the league was great had some amazing matches finished off with a 2hr 30min cracker!"

 

"Thanks for the league - it was really great."

 

 "! have enjoyed the matches I have played and think this league is a great initiative, set up and run very professionally and effectively, and will surely continue to grow."

"Can I say what a great idea this league is. Speaking to the others in the league I know how much we have all enjoyed it. Joining a club does not work for me at the moment, so this has been fantastic for me...and to be able to get on the court and play some singles matches after almost 10 years of no tennis has been great. So thank you to you both. Looking forward to the next!"
