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.

  • "Brutal, physical match w Gael on an epic day. One of those matches you’re not sure how you won? Gael was better returner, more aggressive, I guess I was just able to win some important points.

Collapse AllHolland Park & KMP Doubles - Round 1 | Thursday 14 June 2018 to Wednesday 22 August 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 18 July 2018)

This round unfortunately didn't really get going with only two matches played and a couple of pairs not getting off the start line. We know it's harder to find a time when four players are free, so do get in touch if you need help getting a match arranged. Thanks to those of you that took part and we hope you enjoyed some competitive tennis.

Group Summary:

A shame we only saw two matches played, nevertheless we still have a group champion to crown. Andre & Theo and Kevin & Lauren both got a win on the board to put themselves in contention for the prize. Fortunately we did see a head to head between the two, and this was a tight match which Andre & Theo narrowly won 6-4 6-4 to claim first place.
