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.

Player Comments:

  • "The sun played a part in this match, sitting directly in the eyeline on one end of the court. I had flashbacks to playing Quincy in the first game, where I made a good deal of first serves and watched as Josh smashed them past me for clean winners. He continued to pressure me on serve and I was fortunate to save all the break points he earned against me to take the set 6-1. In the second set we stayed toe to toe, Josh even broke me for a 3-2 lead but could never find his rhythm and I continued to take the big points for another score that doesn't reflect the caliber of the opposition, 6-3. Thanks for a great match Josh (and the lift!)"  -- Jamie
Reveal CommentJamie Cowie bt Ireo Ostacchini (Jun 11) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Off to a bad start... I went to Highbury instead of Finsbury! Ireo was very understanding as I showed up a couple of minutes after 7. With no floodlights, the ever present threat of rain and darkening sky it felt like the match was unlikely to be completed, especially as neither of us managed to hold serve until we reached 4 games all (we blame the wind). I managed to hold and break again for a 6-4 win. The second set continued as we struggled to hold serve (and tackle the ever-so-slight slope) - Ireo covers the court will and I rarely found empty space. Ireo was the first to get ahead, breaking me at 4-all to take a 5-4 lead. I got through that game and clung onto my serve to take the set and the match 7-5. Thanks for a great match!"  -- Jamie
Reveal CommentJamie Cowie bt Alex Hicks (Jun 10) 6-1, 6-2

  • "On a day of downpours it was touch and go whether we even played - with 15 minutes to go before we started we just decided to go for it! The rain held off and the courts weren't too slippy and it made for some good tennis. Alex pulled off some good passing shots and I was lucky to get some errors which I don't are typical of his game."  -- Jamie

Player Comments:

  • "An epic battle, 2 1/2 hours on a soggy court. Matt didn't stop running about and retrieving the ball, which I think is cheating really - where I thought I'd made a few winners, back the ball would come! The conditions were far from ideal being rather slippery (note to self don't wear expensive new trainers in slippery conditions, wear cheap old indoor trainers instead) & rainy, but Matt certainly coped better than I did in the first set. A change of footwear led to a better grip in the 2nd set and all round happiness, but Matt gave nothing away. I took the first 4 games comfortably but then Matt up'd his game and I could feel that set slipping away. Literally. Thanks for a great game Matt!"  -- Sarah

Player Comments:

  • "Wow! That was a tussle. Some rain interruption in the first hour meant we were neck and neck at 1 set each when our 2 hours were over.Luckily we were able to nab an empty court and continue. The third set was incredibly close with most of the games going to multiple multiple deuces. Vicky and I were lucky to nab the crucial points. The boys had us scrambling with their lobs and slices and consistent wily play - but Vicky was a gazelle around the back and a tiger at the net. Many thanks for a great game, guys. As with the last time, very good fun and very close. xx"  -- Poonam
