This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, 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!)
  • 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 posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Collapse AllKilburn Grange Park Singles - Round 14 | Thursday 18 July 2019 to Wednesday 11 September 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 14 August 2019)

Nearly 80% of matches were completed in the round and that is even better than last time. Thank you for taking the tennis so seriously and injecting so much fun into the proceedings too. Here's to the next round!

Group Summary:

Match ups are a curious thing. Kaladerhan and James had very similar rounds. Both picked up bonus points, both won five matches and lost one, and both ended up with fourteen points. But while Kaladerhan's nemesis this round was Krzysiek (who couldn't repeat the success consistently enough to challenge the leaders), James was beaten by Kaladerhan, and that proved crucial! The head-to-head victory is all that separated the top two and wins him the title this time!

Final Rankings:

  1. Kaladerhan Agbontaen [W6, L1] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. James Paton [W6, L1] 14 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Thomas Coleman [W4, L3] 10 includes 2 bonus points
  4. Mark Webber [W2, L5] 8 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Andy Craig [W3, L2, UF1] 7
  6. Alejandro Gil [W1, L4, UF1] 7 includes 2 bonus points
  7. Krzysiek Filipiak 9.2 [W2, L5] 6 includes 2 bonus points
  8. John Kelly 8.2 [W1, L4] 4 includes 2 bonus points

Reveal CommentAndy Craig bt Thomas Coleman (Aug 27) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable game with Thomas on an unfathomably humid evening. Thomas is strong off both sides and created some brilliant angles, as well as a number of winning overheads. Scoreline doesn't quite reflect the closeness of the match, with a number of games going to deuce. Look forward to playing again soon (my turn to book the court!)," -- Thomas
Reveal CommentKaladerhan Agbontaen bt Thomas Coleman (Aug 24) 7-6 (7-5), 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "As always it was a real pleasure playing Thomas and as always not a straightforward match by any means. Both of us were clearly very tight, especially during the first set, and whilst we were unable to produce our best tennis we were still able to enjoy an intense and competitive match. This time I got the rub of the green and with that the victory. I very much look forward to our future encounters!"  -- Kaladerhan

  • "Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun - this old saying definitely proved to be true as Mark and I slogged away in the 39 degrees heat. Nevertheless, we managed to survive another enjoyable match with good rallies and exciting points; thankfully I was able to stave off Mark taking the match to a third set after some spirited play in the second."  -- Kaladerhan

Group Summary:

Lovely to have Jack's commentary on his match with Oliver as it gives a real hint of how Oliver goes about his tennis. And whatever the tactics it certainly seemed to be working this round as Oliver sailed to the top of the group. Jose was not far behind and picks up a well-deserved runner up position.

Reveal CommentOliver Mystkowski bt Finlay Davies (Jul 21) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Good match, Fin commited some double fouls which allowed me to win in the end. He is very tall so his serves can bounce quite high which makes them hard to return"  -- Oliver

Group Summary:

A couple of injury withdrawals made getting matches set up and played trickier than usual, but front-runner Osarobo negotiated his path brilliantly and while he conceded a match to Alexander, he ended the round with enough wins under his belt for a comfortable group victory. Well done too to second placed Dmitry.

Group Summary:

Antonio was not to be denied on his return to the league, though he did have to pull out some of his best tennis for some of the matches! Well done on the unbeaten five match winning streak - can he keep that going next round? Theodoros (who like Antonio has "hot weather DNA") also thrived in the summer sunshine and earns a commendable silver.
