Revision information
Provide an explanation of the changes you are making. This will help other authors understand your motivations.

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!

Player Comments:

  • "I was probably lucky to catch Alexey as the first match in the round after a year out of not playing. A killer serve and forehand combo had me on the ropes for much of the first set. I was lucky to pull out in front in the second thanks to one or two net cords. A great game."  -- Jamie

Player Comments:

  • "After having lost all 3 previous games again Marcos, including the last one in which I had 3 match points, I was determined to give everything to this match. The first set consisted of 8 breaks of serve out of 9 games, and my single hold was enough to take it 6-3. The second set was extremely tight with better serving from both and we ended up in a tiebreak. I held my nerve to get over the line. Overall a very fun match as always with Marcos"  -- Brendan

Player Comments:

  • "Beautiful morning for some tennis in Brockwell Park! A really enjoyable first set saw James pip it in the tie-break. James dropped his energy levels in the next 2 sets allowing me to get back into the match and see out the final set going well over 2 hours! Attacking tennis and good rallies all game long!"  -- Marcos

Player Comments:

Player Comments:

  • "The class and quality of this game couldn't fit into 1 night so it was played across 2 nights in total. This allowed even more fans than usual to drink in the spectacle on offer. And what a spectacle it was! The tedium of everyday life was left at the door in this match as the players delved deep into their arsenals to salvage some moments of pure magic and tenacity that only doubles seems to create. These moments were watched by a capacity crowd that ooohd and aaaahd at the quality of serving, slicing and volleying that was on show. The rain threatened on the second night but even Zeus (amongst other things the Greek God of rain) didn't dare interfere too much and allowed the earthly players to lap up the applause of an adoring crowd!"  -- Edward
