The league is:

  • For everybody!

  • 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.

"Had a fabulous time and [met] great people"

"I have so enjoyed the last two rounds and my tennis has definitely improved,"

Suzette Aagaard

"I think we've been a pretty good group and i'm looking forward to the next league. Thank you for organising."

 "It was great to meet new people and hope to organise some doubles games in the near future to continue to play more tennis. Really enjoyed having the opportunity to play both competitively and socially, particularly at Brockwell Park which has a terrific atmosphere on a Sunday morning (although kept missing brunch at the Lilo!). Looking forward to playing some further matches and meeting even more people, the league has allowed me to really enjoy tennis again following my move to London. Thanks to you both, Sally and Nigel,"

Chris Burton

"Thanks so much for organising and look forward to joining the next round!"

Gurpreet Dosanjh

"Thanks for all your work. It's such a great thing to be able to play local people,"

Player Comments:

  • "Marcos didn't seem to get going today with his usual big ground strokes not quite firing. Possibly he was saving himself for the football match he was planning on running to following our match! "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentTimothy Jones bt Dave Loweirnely (Jun 10) 7-6 (7-5), 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "This match answered the question of what happens when two counter-punchers play each other: a 2+hr marathon with individual points repeatedly lasting over 30 shots. Dave was by far the more consistent in the first set, leading 3-0 and then 5-3 before I clawed it back to a closely-fought tie-break. We both went for our shots a bit more in the second set, and I was relieved to close it out when I did as I don’t know if I had the energy reserves for much more! Great fun."  -- Timothy
Reveal CommentDavid Jovic bt Jack Mountain (Jun 9) 7-5, 1-6, 3-1 Jack Mountain Retired

Player Comments:

  • "Fun tennis as the youth movement takes over Kennington Tennis league.. Jack and I have similar games but to put it simply, he hits it harder and I did my best to hang in there in most rallies and benefited from a stroke of luck on set point in the 1st, with the ball gently hitting the net and falling over. My age and poor conditioning showed in the second set with Jack running me off the court. I was able to rebound in the third and unfortunately Jack was unable to continue after aggravating his shoulder on a serve. Look forward to our next match "  -- David
Reveal CommentDavid Jovic bt Tom Harvey (Jun 6) 4-6, 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "This was a really fun match against Tom, as is usually the case. Great workout and lots of long rallies, Tom seemed to be on most balls despite my best efforts in the first set and despite the lopsided score, the last two sets were by no means a walk in the park. Rather, most games were heavily disputed and I was not able to relax until the end, trying to stay focused depiste the flood lights going out forcing us to change courts..."  -- David
Reveal CommentTristan Michel bt Marcos Fernandez (Jun 5) 6-0, 3-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Great 3 set match against Marcos - he managed to get on top of me in both the 2nd set and the first half of the 3rd set with some great serving and big forehands, but I was able to up my game slightly to come through. Look forward to a re-match!"  -- Tristan

Reveal CommentDave Loweirnely bt Marcos Fernandez (May 28) 7-6 (7-2), 5-7, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "It's been a few years since I last played Dave and I remembered struggling back then too! You have to go and win your points against Dave as he can soak up the pressure and pin you back which largely worked against me, forcing wild errors! I managed to stay ahead in the second set and I lead 5-4 but I'm 40 love down on my service so it'll be a hard slog to get back into this game once we resume. Nice to see Dave in Group 1."  -- Marcos

Reveal CommentJack Mountain bt Marcos Fernandez (May 17) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A first match up with Jack and it was a bit of a struggle for me, could not get into the game at all and Jack had all the shots to take advantage. Jack's serve is a definite weapon and he got a good few aces on me! Hopefully i can give him a better game next time!"  -- Marcos
Reveal CommentDavid Jovic bt Marcos Fernandez (May 12) 7-6 (7-2), 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Really fun match with lots of rallies as we barely dodged the rain. Happy to have come out on top against Marcus who has beaten me several times in a row. First set was a nail-biter and went down to a tie-break but I was able to remain uncharacteristically consistant on my backhand which was the difference in the end as I pulled away late in the second (after an embarassing aborted match point due to my inability to keep score). Looking forward to our next match, always a pleasure"  -- David

Player Comments:

  • "Dolphin Square has been described as Britain's most notorious address. Known for being a hotbed of scandals and intrigue. One of its former residents - Ian Fleming - won't have had to have gone looking down too many corridors for inspiration for his characters, both heroes and villains! A perfect setting then for a local leagues tennis match. In fact James Bond himself would have been delighted with the amount of deception taking place on the tennis court as the two players played some delightful slices and drop shots that kept their opponent spinning around the court quicker than Oddjob's bowler hat. Indeed it was commented that Dejan's serve was so silky that it even made Roger Moore look like a clumsy fool. Well played all. "  -- Edward

Player Comments:

  • "Kennington Park. Court 1. 8-10pm. Small details such as this simply don't tell the rich and engrossing match that drew a record crowd to catch a glimpse of these two warriors. There was enough drama in this instalment to make a series of 'Game of Thrones' look like a Sunday afternoon snoozefest. The crowd were treated to some shots that appeared other-worldly and there were rumours going round the ground by the end of the contest that these 2 players were in fact sorcerers in disguise. Matt's returns make even the most aggressive alpine ibex look like a soft teddy bear, in slippers, with a glass of milk and a cookie. You get the message - he smashes it back at your feet before you've had time process the fireball coming at you. Well played."  -- Edward

Two very different sets but with plenty of drama... volley exchanges, drop shots, 20 stroke end to end rallies and soul-sapping net chords. Late in the 2nd, and against the flow of play, Kuros managed to dig deep and come back from the cliff edge of 5-2 down in the 2nd to secure the set and match.

But it couldn’t last, and he roared back to 4-3 using his aggressive kick serve and displaying his all-court athleticism. It set-up a tense end of the set: I blew a set point on my serve at 5-4. Yet with James’ serve faltering too, I was able to see out the first 7-5. We traded breaks at the start of the second set, but thereafter James’ frustration with his faltering first serve gave me opportunity to capitalise and really aim for the corners. I came away from the match feeling like I was lucky I caught him on a off-day!"  -- Adam

Some quite fast games to love and some strong serving saw Alexander take the second but some great points were had along the way! At 5-2 up and serving for the set Alexander was facing the worst of the sun, but I wasn't going to let him walk away with it, a marathon service game ensued with both players missing opportunities to close it out, I won the game but was immediately broken to conceed the set.

  • "This match was a bit of a workout! Lots of fairly long points, with not too much to separate us, with a fair bit of frustration on show from both players from missed opportunities. I was glad to somehow come out ahead, on this fun, competitive match! "  -- Mike

Player Comments:

  • "The first set was very competitive, with Dee breaking serve early on, leaving me to re-group and play catch up. Plenty of long rallies in the first set (as always with Dee). Great sunny summer day for tennis."  -- Benedict
Reveal CommentJohn Macdonald bt Dee Dinneen (Jun 22) 7-6 (7-3), 1-6, [10-6]

Player Comments:

  • "Good fun playing against Dee as always. She's very competitive without taking it too seriously. Nervy match split over 2 days where we had to suspend play partway through the 1st set tie-break. It would have been great to play a 3rd set but schedules and timeframe just didn't allow. "  -- John

  • "A nice sunny morning. Maybe even too much sun! After a friendly chat and some time to warm up and hit a few balls we got straight into it. Francesco beat me well and quite easily in all honesty. He is a good player and should definitely be in a few group above!. Well done to Francesco and thanks for the advice and tips. James "  -- JAMES

Reveal CommentBenedict Lam bt Joel Richardson (Jun 9) 6-0, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Another beautiful hot sunny day for tennis. In the second set Joel fought back to win 3 games in a row when I was leading 3-0. And at 3-3 my service game was crucial to how the rest of the match played out. It was back on deuce around 4 times before I managed to hold serve. Things might have been very different had Joel broke my service game on that one. Thanks for the match."  -- Benedict

Player Comments:

  • "9am the sun is out the skies are blue, what a morning for tennis. After a brief chat about our tennis past, jobs and general life we get started on court 2 at Kennington Park. We have a 2 hour booking so a good practise hit for half an hour or so before we start the match was a nice way to get warmed up and remember some techniques. Over all the games were very even and Greta played very well. Her deceptive serve is tricky to return and proved extremely accurate 80% of the time. After the 1st set we had to have a water break as by this point it was really hot and one side of the court was more difficult to be on due to the sun in your eyes. Overall a really good competitive match and nice to meet Greta who is lovely. Well done "  -- JAMES
