  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • 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

  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Player Comments:

  • "This was the 'shoot out' of the more 'mature gentlemen' of the group (combined age - 128yrs!). Although it was a glorious afternoon, the sun was problematic for both of us at one end of the court. Peter took the first set on a tie-break (7-4) and I managed to win the crucial points at end of the third set. It was a very enjoyable game which could have gone either way at the end. Thanks for the game Peter"  -- Mark
Reveal CommentTim Kay bt Mark Ludlam (May 22) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable match as always against Mark. Some extremely long and well fought points, plus some cracking shots that I just stood no chance of getting to. Thanks for a great game mark."  -- Tim
Reveal CommentPaul Green bt Stephen Hunt (May 21) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Steve started the better, but I won the crucial points to take the first set to two games. The second set was closer, with the scores even all the way to the end. A final winner that was very close to the line was charitably given to me, meaning I just edged the second set, but it was a very close and thoroughly entertaining affair — Paul"  -- Paul
Reveal CommentPaul Green bt Mark Ludlam (May 21) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "The sun was gruelling and affected both of our serves. Mark played consistently well and should do well in the group, but as seems to be the case in the group so far, some close games weren’t reflected in the final score and the big points went my way. Thanks Mark, I enjoyed it immensely — Paul"  -- Paul
Reveal CommentTim Kay bt Andrew Stainton (May 19) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "This was a very closely competed match and definitely the hardest one I've won - which is really strange to say considering the scoreline. Andrew played some great shots and made sure I had to be good enough. I think, again, I was making fewer mistakes whilst Andrew made more, which was the difference in the end. Many thanks, Andrew, really enjoyed it."  -- Tim

Reveal CommentTim Kay bt Stephen Hunt (May 13) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A very good match which we both expected to be closer. On the day, we agreed I was most consistant though (for a change) and this felected in the result. One particular point at the start of the second set lasted for about 30 strokes before i finally put it into the net, which just highlighted what a close match this should have been. Anyway, thanks to Stephen for a great game."  -- Tim

Reveal CommentSimon Cook bt Sean Donovan (May 13) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Good conditions for our game, breeze caused some issues with the serve of both players (well that's my excuse anyway), tentative start from both players, both of us just aiming to return the ball, game loosened up in the second set where more winners were played rather than mistakes made. Good to get back on the court, think both of us were a bit rusty, but played in good spirit and very enjoyable."  -- Simon

Reveal CommentTony Nagy-Stephenson bt Jonathan Ryan (May 20) 7-6 (7-2), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A really competitive game played in very hot weather. The first set was nip and tuck all the way - with some really good rallies. I seemed to find my timing for my serve just in time for the tiebreak which went against the flow of the first set. Luckily for me I continued to find good timing and pace in my serve going into the second set but Johny played a lot of good service returns - some of the outright winners and the end score of the second set belied the fact that it was quite a close game - albeit I think we both were suffering from the heat a little by the end - but better too warm than raining! The match was played in the spirit of the game - and I look forward to playing him again."  -- Tony
