This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, 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!)
  • 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 posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.

  • "It was drizzling throughout the match, but luckily it never rained heavily, so we were fine to play. In the first set I was making some unforced errors & trailed 1-3, but once I cut these out, I won the next 11 games in a row to win 6-3, 6-0. We had a friendly match & we even played 2 more sets after, which I won 6-1, 6-1. "  -- Rory

Player Comments:

  • "Roberto has improved massively since the first round when I trounced him 6-1, 6-1. He is a real fighter and chases every ball down and shows real passion. We initially started the match on Sunday 23rd August but we were rained off after I had won the first set 6-2 and led 1-0 in the 2nd set. We reconvened on 31st August and I went 2-0 up only for Roberto take the lead, going 4-2 up & then 5-3 up and even had a set point at 5-3. However, I battled on and was determined not to let him snatch a set and I managed to win 7-5 in the end. Good match Roberto you are getting harder & harder to beat!"  -- Rory

Reveal CommentRory Scott bt Liviu-Dan Madalina (Aug 30) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Liviu-Dan has a very powerful 1st serve but barely ever gets it in. His second serve puts him at a disadvantage and I was able to capitalise on that. I was serving well and my ground strokes were going well. The first set was competitive and I won 6-3, but Liviu-Dan made more errors than me in the second set and I got a good lead & won 6-1. "  -- Rory
Reveal CommentRory Scott bt James McLaren (Aug 27) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Rain was threatened but we decided to chance it. It was spitting sporadically throughout the 1st set but was ok. I went 4-0 up in the 1st set, but James pegged me back to 4-2 and I won 6-2. In the 2nd set, the rain 🌧 was constant but light & playable. I won the first 3 games of the 2nd set, but then James went on the rampage and won 4 games in a row to lead 4-3. He did struggle a bit in the rain as a glasses wearer. I then went 5-4 up, but at 30 all there was a downpour. We decided to play on as we were potentially very close to finishing. After a no. of deuces I eventually closed out the match 6-4, but James had done way better than his previous score against me (6-0, 6-1), despite me having played almost every day for the last 3 months.
