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.

Collapse AllGreenhead Park, Huddersfield Singles - Round 11 | Thursday 4 October 2018 to Wednesday 28 November 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 31 October 2018)

A competitive Autumn round in Greenhead Park, where despite some "challenging conditions" there were still many matches played throughout the three groups. Thanks to everyone who took part for your efforts and we hope to see you again in the new year.

Group Summary:

A round of applause to Bernie who showed fine form to notch up four wins out of five to take the group one title at the first time of asking. Now Robert was too strong for the new champ in their head to head so what might have happened had he played a few more? Andrew defeated James in the three set thriller of the round and added two further wins to his tally to climb into second.

Group Summary:

Peter and Gary matched each other stride for stride on court to make it a two horse race for the title. The match between the two was a memorable top of the table clash, where Peter fought back from a set down to clinch a 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 victory. Crucially Peter also perfected his scheduling skills and these bonus points see him move clear into the number one spot. Well done to Younes too who beat the new champ in an incredibly close three set contest.
