Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • 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 

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
  • 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.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

Reveal CommentBiswadip Dasgupta bt Sonja Cirrotti (Oct 14) 4-2, 4-0

Player Comments:

  • "Sonja is a fine athlete and in great shape. She needs to find a way to express those natural attributes on the tennis court. She has an unusual two-handed style which could prove awkward for opponents if developed. She would benefit greatly from some coaching or some play with an empathetic partner who can encourage her to assert herself on the tennis court more. In particular, she should learn to move more in order to make herself comfortable rather than the stand and deliver style she seems to have adopted. As with everyone, her service could be improved tremendously with some coaching. Well played Sonja and better luck next time!"  -- Biswadip
Reveal CommentShaz Muradova bt Biswadip Dasgupta (Oct 14) 4-1, 4-0

Player Comments:

  • "Shaz Muradova was a woman in a hurry. She ran to the venue of this match, completed a straight sets demolition of her opponent and followed that up by running to the venue of her next match In the Regents Park league. Shaz put on a clinical demonstration of speed and power to overwhelm her game opponent. There were some good rallies as both players strived for advantage but the result was never in doubt. Well played Shaz!"  -- Biswadip
Reveal CommentNik Rudge bt Matthew Lechtzier (Oct 12) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "The score is no reflection of the nature of a match that was closer than it may seem. Matthew is a strong player with an outstanding serve and a very consistent forehand. "  -- Nik
Nik Rudge bt Arindam Sharma (Oct 11) 6-0, 6-0
Reveal CommentNik Rudge bt Biswadip Dasgupta (Oct 8) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Nik is a powerful player and it is hard to believe he is ranked a lowly 8+ in Holland where he is domiciled! He has excellent fitness, hits deep topspin off both wings and can serve fast and flat or loopy high-kickers. It remains to be seen if anyone is good enough to challenge him in this group. He is also a really nice guy so it is an enjoyable experience to play him."  -- Biswadip
