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!

Will had me battling to hold my serve from the first game but luckily my serve showed uncharacteristic reliablility allowing me to get on the scoreboard early. By holding serve throughout and being able to take a couple of break points in either set I was able to clinch the match with what was a rather flattering score line. Really enjoyable match, thanks Will"  -- Christopher

Player Comments:

  • "Kennington Park has seen many a tussle over the years, and today's match will go down in the history books as another of those tough battles. Chris has a background in squash, as evidenced by his rubber like wrists that exact insane amounts of spin and angles on the ball that I though only existed in trigonometry lessons at school. Marry this with his cobra like enthusiasm to get to the net, seriously, he's quicker out of the blocks than Usain Bolt, and we are left with a formidable opponent. The fans flocked to Kennington Park and enjoyed themselves on a balmy South London night. They left enthused and marvelling at the spectacle of tennis they had witnessed with winners, aces and lobs a plenty. Great game, well played."  -- Edward
