This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, 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!)
  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • 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 available on 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:

  • "A fab match to add a touch of fire to a cold night in London! It cannot be overstated how evenly matched the two of us were throughout the entire contest; there was often no more than one game in it (certainly no more than one break), and it really did come down to the odd point here or there... making me feel extremely guilty that I got more than my fair share of net cords going my way. Luke played with great variety all evening, with some big groundstrokes, deft drop shots and fierce second serves. I felt fortunate to edge a long first set, which was promptly outdone by an even longer second set, where there were some of the longest individual games I have ever played - with dozens of deuces. Look forward to another tight battle soon!"  -- Timothy

Some nervous moments when in the second it seemed like I was cruising to victory and Tom did well to fight back and stay in it, but good fun as always. Perhaps more worth of note, was an epic half hour game of tug o' war played afterwards which was only interrupted by the flood lights going off!"  -- David

Player Comments:

  • "Wins against Tim are like rare gems, in short supply and very hard to come by! This was a great game on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Having won the toss and electing to first serve allowed me to be ahead throughout the game, only a couple of breaks decided this match and by God I had to work hard to get those. There was countless breathless rallies and scrambled winners from us both. I definitely had all the luck though, i think I must of got a game full of winners thanks to the let cord...sorry Tim. As always I look forward to our next battle!!"  -- Marcos

Reveal CommentTom Harvey bt Timothy Jones (Oct 17) 3-6, 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Despite my cynical use of the drop shot throughout, we still managed to have a great match. It was a topsy-turvy opening series of games with Tim strolling to the first set, winning 5 games in a row after I took an initial lead. The second and third sets were a lot closer. A number of games went to multiple deuces but I somehow managed to sneak the win. "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentMarcos Fernandez bt Simon Wood (Oct 15) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A proper Autumnal affair in Burgess Park, on a blustry & leafy night with our main floodlight out of action over the net casting shadows on what could what been a much better game! Neither of us found much rhythm and relied on our power shots to gain control, rallying wasn't much fun with the high winds. I was just happy to win having lost all my previous Group 1 games. Simon was 5-2 up in the second set but hit a bad patch which allowed me to rattle off the remaining 5 games. Hoping for better conditions next time we meet!! "  -- Marcos

  • "Take me out to the ballgame, take me down to the park! came the cry as the crowds turned up in their droves for this Thursday night encounter. Another tennis match was happening in London this evening, but that was all the way over in Greenwich and you'd have to pay an arm and a leg just to get a glimpse. No, the thinking tennis fan could be found at Burgess Park, court 4. And by the look of things South London is full of great thinkers as loads turned up to cheer on their new found heroes. Aristotle and Plato would have been mighty proud! The players put on a show with some artsy ground strokes that led to swanlike movement on the court. Honestly, it was as if Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire had picked up a racket each. Very well played all."  -- Edward

Player Comments:

  • "Remember remember the 5th of November and what a firecracker this bout turned out to be! Yes there were fireworks off the court but nothing compared to those on it. Tom’s serve went like a rocket, his forehand like a banger and his lob had me spinning like a Catherine Wheel. As if this wasn’t enough drama all the mist created by this bombastic display settled on the court like dry ice being fanned across the stage at a rock concert. The fans who attended in their droves left happy if a little more deaf than when they turned up. Who knew ear defenders had become an essential at a tennis match these days? Well played to all concerned, especially my racket stringer who sorted me out before the game quicker than a hungry hyena. "  -- Edward

  • "What a great match! This was very close, two evenly matched players both hitting the lines, coming into the net, making passing shots, great rallies and some decent serving amongst the unforced errors. After a tense end to the first set my first service game must have taken over 10 minutes with so many deuces, although I took the game, Hugo bounced back to take a lead in the set. It looked like an epic 3 seter, until the psychology started to play a factor. Again we found ourselves in a tie break, and with Hugo having a set point, he played a lovey drop shot which I somehow got to with the tip of my racket, and after a heavy tap of the net cord it trickled over, pretty lucky! Thanks for the match Hugo, I'm looking forward to a rematch!"  -- Mike

  • "Thanks to George managing to book a court, which seems impossible with all the closures at the moment, we had a fun match at Battersea. George loosened up in the second set, and the scoreline could have been closer."  -- Mike

Collapse AllKennington & Brockwell Parks Doubles - Round 23 | Thursday 6 September 2018 to Wednesday 28 November 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 17 October 2018)

Thanks to everyone who got involved in this Autumn round. It would have been great to see more action on court, so do remember to let us know if you need help getting matches arranged, as we know scheduling doubles can be difficult. Hope to see you when the league returns in the spring!

Group Summary:

This group was unfortunately hit by several no shows and a withdrawal which resulted in fewer matches played than we would have liked. Matt & Georgina made the most of their time on court, beating all three of the pairs they played in straight sets to deservedly become the new champs. Craig & Alexander, played more matches than anyone else and joined Matt & Georgina on six points at the front, but with Matt & Georgina coming out on top in their head to head they have to settle for silver this time.

Final Rankings:

  1. Matt Goodwin & Georgina Rush [W3] 6 WINNER
  2. Craig Cunningham & Alexander McBeath [W1, L3] 6 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Sophie Armour & Matt Hawkins [W2, L1] 4
