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 voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. 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:

  • "A rollercoaster first set which could have gone either way went mine in the tiebreak. Michelle hit some blistering forehand and blasted a few aces in what was generally a creditable performance for someone playing their first singles match and which augurs well for the future. To be played to a finish next Sunday - my serve 0-0 second set."  -- Biswadip
  • "Michelle brought her A-game today and bullied me off court in little over half an hour with a stream of powerful forehand winners and aces down the middle to which I had no answer. There were some good rallies but Michelle's harder hitting and faster running ensured that she was able to end most of them with a killer forehand or smashing overhead. A dream debut for the hungry young tyro and wishing her the best of luck in her remaining matches." Biswadip

Reveal CommentBiswadip Dasgupta bt Elena Letyagina (May 12) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Fun match with Elena on a beautiful sunny afternoon in Holland Park. Elena is coming back from a recent wrist injury so her service action is still restricted - moreover this was her first competitive league match. But she provided enough glimpses of fast-paced scampering and a solid double-hander backhand to give notice that she will be a force to contend with as she continues to improve. Thanks Elena and best of luck in your remaining games!"  -- Biswadip
