Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, 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!)
  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • 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 bottle of Champagne which has to be collected from us. A winner's certificate is also available on the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

  • "Good fightback by George in the first set after established a decent lead. Having gone 2-4 down in the tie break I seemed to be in danger of throwing the set away but managed my own fightback and took the tie break. Some really long points and games (and a late start which was my fault) meant we only got a little way into the 3rd set before time ran out. Looking forward to completing the match.

Reveal CommentJamie Cowie bt Pietro Smacchia (Apr 7) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Avoiding the worst of the rain, we were still forced to step gingerly around a very slippery court surface to get the match played. Pietro hit some great serves and returns in the beginning of the match and quickly went a double break up, showing little weakness and a good all-round game. He lost some rhythm on his serve and from then on the match was extremely close. My serve worked well and I got a lot of luck with net chords to edge the first set. This pattern carried deep into the second until Pietro dug in, found some steely consistency in his ground game and forced me to serve for it. He saved 3 match points and watched two break points pass by before I finally got the volley I was looking for to seal it."  -- Jamie

Player Comments:

He had 2 serves for the set at 6-3 up but I saved both points, winning 5 in a row to take the tiebreak 8-6. The second set appeared more 1-sided, I served for it and held 3 match points at 40-0, 5-2 up. To his credit with 2 returns hitting the line Arnold saved them all and brought himself back into contention, winning 4 games in a row, and gave himself a chance to serve for the set. However he didn't hold serve and we had another tiebreak under the lights. I earned another four match points and converted the second, taking the breaker and the match 7-3."  -- Jamie

Player Comments:

  • "It's taken us two rounds but it was worth it! Great game. First set was very close with both players holding serve until 4-4. I managed to capitalise on a few errors by Eddie, gaining the crucial break and then holding serve to win the set. After a hard fought first set, my serving came into it's own in the second. Eddie was feeling the pressure, was unable to hold on, breaking early. He fought back valiantly, breaking me back, but was then unable to hold on under increasing pressure from some aggressive returns. Some great games and rallies, thanks for playing! "  -- Mark
Reveal CommentMark Davison bt Cath Le Couteur (Apr 7) 6-3, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A tale of two racquets, after Cath snapped her string at the end of the first set. The first set was tight, but edged it out on top with two breaks of serve and a strong hold to win the set from 3 games all. Then suddenly the ping, it was a different game. With my spare racquet Cath's serve became a whole new beast. The slice was incredible, pushing me miles off the court to hold her serve well and tie the set at 5 games all. Then the break through. I held to make it 6-5 and after a great game was able to win with lighting fast volley off a strong cross court return. Great game all round an thank you for playing. "  -- Mark
