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!

Annabel Iglehart

Pablo Esteve

"I am delighted to have a prize [a free can of balls] given I've lost every match so far! - and I am having a great time too. So if this is losing, it's definitely the way to do it!"

Matt and Joel stepped it up in the second set and stuck to their strategy. Abi served at 5-2 and I at 5-4 for the match, but Matt and Joel did very well to save two match points from 40-15. We got to a tiebreak and some great, tense, long points ended when Matt was serving at 5-6 to give us the win. Really good fun and could easily have got away from us in the second set. Well play guys. "  -- Patrick

Also aided by the fact we couldn't put a first serve in and quite often neither a second serve as well. Down 5-3 in the second and facing a couple of match points, we hustled our way back in and level it up. Riding on the momentum, we took an early couple of breaks and managed to ride it out when things tightened up again for the decider. Good match, thanks very much guys."  -- Jeffrey

A very tight first set saw the deciding moments after 4-4, with the momentum switching repeatedly: 4-4 0-40, Philip and Julian managed to come back to deny us the break; when it looked like Mouche and I couldn't overcome our disappointment for the missed opportunities, finding ourselves in a hole facing 3 consecutive set points down, Mouche stood up playing unbelievably solid tennis, returning everything that was thrown at her and eventually allowing me to close the point at the net. After denying 7 break points opportunities, we broke in the next game and held to seal the first set. Interesting second set too, but I ran out of characters.Thanks"  -- Salvatore

Player Comments:

  • "First match since the clocks changed so we played in the evening sunlight surrounded by beautiful blossom and the distant roar from the Arsenal stadium. We enjoyed some lovely rallies in a good-natured match, the only disruption being when the park-keeper’s dog, Bella, levered up the court netting with her snout to steal TWO of our balls... We managed to retrieve only one! "  -- Caroline
