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.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Adrian Baker

"Loved playing in Hove league, met some really nice players of a good standard and good to see so many games being completed"

Paul Ramsden

"It was great experience to play in the league and maybe more importantly it was a new beginning for me after a long break. I had started to play tennis almost 20 years ago when I was 9, used to be good I believe, and it was a true passion. Now I have a similar excitement to be back in tennis. I had tough games in the round I think it was well balanced group. Thank you for giving me this opportunity," Erhan Seklem

So many great matches here it's hard to single out any but Gavin says his match against David in group 4 was "One of the best matches I've played. I think I got lucky with more net cords than David .Very strenuous game. Next time I'll bring more water." This was a fantastic round in Hove, with 98 matches played in a brilliant spirit! Very well played all and hope to see you again next time.

Group Summary:

"Great match on lovely courts in beautiful weather, what more could we want? :)" said Matt of his match v Bruno. What more indeed! This was a brilliantly well fought group with everyone playing at least 4 matches and many playing many more. There were great come backs, re-newed friendly rivalries, and some very tight games. When the last ball had been rolled back into the can, defending champ Dimitri was the winner once again, finishing undefeated 6 wins the good. Guy was the very well deserved runner up. Well played all!

However, I came back to take the second in a strangely quick set. We were out of time (and energy!) to carry on so we reconvened the following week to play the third - unfortunately this was on the hottest day of the year so far, so the quality of tennis was less good, but I was pleased to come away with the win!

Group Summary:

A much quieter group than group 1 so all credit to Gary for playing 5 matches and winning 4 of them! It took him to the top of the podium this round, 6 clear points ahead of runner up Toby, although Toby won their head to head. Toby tied on points with Luca, but won that match too, so Luca comes third. Will more matches next time take Toby to gold? And will we see more of Harvey next time! Do hope you can get your campaign underway next time you play.

This was a group of tight but friendly matches, with some really generous match commentaries which we very much enjoyed. Andy was on great form and takes gold with 6 wins and just one loss to runner up Dee who was just one point behind and says of their game: "We had a very competitive match played with the best sporting etiquette and friendliness. The second set was particularly nip and tuck with each game tightly contested, eventually going to a tie-break with 4 match points saved. I look forward to playing Andy again." Many congratulations to both!
