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.

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

"Thanks again for putting this league together we have had a ball!"

Jamie Fowler
"Thanks for the email and for organising the Mixed Doubles competition - it was really good fun and I'm looking forward to the next one"
 

"Just to say that I've joined the forthcoming Clapham round after having such a great time in the Kennington & Brockwell league - thank you so much for organising all of this, really great to be involved," 

James Malcolm

"As always, lots of fun. I really enjoy the league - I simply wouldn't be able to play nearly as much tennis without it. Your efforts in making it a reality are hugely appreciated. Here's to more group wins and a summer of tennis!", Jack Bayley

Jack Bayley

"It was such fun, I was pleased to be losing less with each match played and even more pleased at just how many games went stuck at deuce/adv for ages. Hey, I now need to fine tune my competitive spirit and not give up at the last point or feel sorry for my opponent when I get to 40-0! So close, yet so far!! Count me in for next time."

Player Comments:

  • "Pleasant evening at Kennington and a streaky match with both of us winning games in bunches. I consciously tried to stay away from Marcus’ killer forehand as much as I could and this worked for me for most of the match. Had a scare in the second when Marcus came back to nearly go up 5-4 after having been down 2-4 but I was able to pull it off in the end."  -- David
Reveal CommentTimothy Jones bt Edward Hamill (Feb 13) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Playing on the recently-dedicated Simon Wood Court, Ed and I had a great match that was much closer than the score line suggests. I had some outrageous pieces of luck in the first set, with miss-hit winners and net cords aplenty - including one on set point. The second set felt even closer, with Ed hitting a couple of fab backhand winners - so I was thankful to pull away in the latter stages. Very much look forward to playing together again soon. "  -- Timothy
Reveal CommentDavid Jovic bt Daniel Bourne (Feb 11) 7-6 (8-6), 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Fun match with Daniel. I generally fare quite poorly against this type of tennis style and was never comfortable throughout the first set as he was able to maintain the pressure, even saving several set points in the tie break. Pulled away in the 2nd set though and was happy to score the points. "  -- David
Reveal CommentThomas Phillips bt Marcos Fernandez (Feb 10) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A closer game than the score suggests, Marcos went a break up at the start of both sets - I was forced to keep my focus and up my game in order to come back. Well played."  -- Thomas
Reveal CommentTimothy Jones bt Tom Harvey (Feb 9) 6-4, 1-6, [10-4]

Player Comments:

  • "Always a tight contest against Tom, and this was no different on a blustery, cold morning. Tom started strongly before I managed to find some rhythm to edge the first set. Tom then went up a gear, and dominated the second set as a result. With little time left for a full final set we went for a match tie-break, which either of us really could have won. Looking forward to playing again soon!"  -- Timothy
Reveal CommentMarcos Fernandez bt Edward Hamill (Feb 8) 4-6, 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A fun game with Ed last night in Burgess. Ed's consistency in the first set was too much for my unforced errors. Second set I was more aggressive and attacked whenever possible as my forehand started to click, I managed to keep this higher intensity through most of the final set. There was lots of good rallie, Ed has good hands/touch and won lots of the longer rallies with lobs & smashes. Not until I was 40-15 and serving for the match did I think I would actually win this game. Until next time Ed!"  -- Marcos
Reveal CommentDaniel Bourne v Tom Harvey (Feb 6) 6-3, 1-2 TBC

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyed a good hard hitting battle until the rain forced play to be suspend. To be continued."  -- Daniel
Reveal CommentDaniel Bourne bt Edward Hamill (Feb 5) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Feels great to get my first win under my belt with what was a hard fought win against a very genuine opponent. Ed's tricky and quirky shotmaking certainly made it very difficult for me but some attacking play and winners at crucial moments proved decisive. Thank you very much Ed for the match and I certainly hope this won't be the last time we face each other! All the best to ya!!"  -- Daniel
Reveal CommentMarcos Fernandez bt Daniel Bourne (Jan 25) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Nice to meet and play Daniel for the first time on a chilly night in Kennington. We had a fun game with lots of good rallies and winners. Daniel fought back really well in the second set and dug in to make it difficult for me to see out the game. Serving for the match at 5-4 I thought I could see it through but Daniel fought off a couple of match points to level things at 5-5. A poor service game then from Daniel allowed me to break again and eventually serve it out to take the set 7-5. Look forward to our next game."  -- Marcos
Reveal CommentSimon Wood bt Daniel Bourne (Jan 21) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A very warm welcome to Daniel in the Kennington League! Played on a cold, crisp January evening on the newly refurbished Kennington Courts, this was a great game. Overall I played the bigger points better but Daniel's never say die attitude made it very hard for me to get over the finish line. A great new addition to the division to hopefully cause some damage amongst us old timers!"  -- Simon
Reveal CommentTom Harvey bt Edward Hamill (Jan 19) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Great fun as always with some really entertaining points. A very tight first set went down to a single break. Ed’s volleying was particularly impressive through out. One half volley stood out as Ed nonchalantly played an unreachable drop shot from what I though was a clean winner. I was relieved to get my nose ahead in the second set and just about cross the line. A friendly third set was equally as close. "  -- Tom

  • "What a cracking start to kick off the campaign for me and Tancred!! In the first set, I was 4-1 down due to inconsistency and then battled back to make it a tiebreak only to come up short in that. Then, in the second,, I was able to move him off court much more and capitalized on the big points to take the 2he set. And due to time for courts, we played a match tiebreak and in the end in spite being 8-7 down, I somehow took the win!! Cheers for match Tancred and looking forward to play you again!!"  -- Seb

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.
