  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!

  • 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

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