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.

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for travelling over an hour to play at mine I think home advantage counts for at least a few games , Patrick struggled with low bounce on the 3G surface He double faulted a lot in the first set I found the baseline a lot with my forearm as I’m used to playing here I felt my forearm and serve were more reliable than at other venues - in my comfort zone This was one of the most satisfying matches to win as Patrick has a great topspin low looping forearm with which he hit a brace of clean winners in the second set . My defence was good today and I was able to scramble back shots using high lobs to rescue me and I tried to make the older man run a bit ! We did play a 3rd set going for our shots and it was much closer at 6-4 "  -- Chi

  • "A very chilled out opponent A lot of deuce games in first two sets with James levelling sets with good consistency Shot of the match to James with a fantastic passing shot down the line The sun and pesky kids broke the flow of the match later on My serve improved as match progressed and to close out i needed more than a few longing lobs to keep James at bay I felt my forearm was average and James impressive gets meant it was even for long periods , I did move him around a bit but never quite managed to hit the lines or do any passing shots and my volleys went directly to the opponent An Enjoyable match played in the right spirit in gorgeous weather "  -- Chi
