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.

"Has been 15 years and a total hip replacement since I have taken to the tennis courts so really enjoyed it! Surprised, but happy to come out on top!"

"​This league is a fantastic initiative and I'm delighted I've found it and can continue to be part of it. Having lived in other parts of the UK, getting access to tennis like this is not something I've experienced anywhere else across the country, given typically you need to join a club, play doubles and it's all very regimented - and often too it can be expensive which inhibits access for many. I'll continue to play for hopefully many years to come!",

Jordan Cordner

First competitive tennis I'd ever played, really enjoyed it. Had to dig deep in some games and was surprised to come out on top. All the other players were super friendly and I'll probably be meeting some of them for an informal game in the near future. Thanks.

Jamie Barrs

This was a really competitive round with a high standard of tennis being played. It was a good turnout considering it was the inaugural round, I'm looking forward to getting the next round underway!

Collapse AllLadywell Fields Singles - Round 14 | Thursday 4 April 2019 to Wednesday 29 May 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 1 May 2019)

More than 160 matches were played in another fantastic round in Ladywell Fields. It's great to see this league go from strength to strength with lots of close competition on court and exciting battles for positions. Thanks for getting involved and lets keep this momentum going in the next round!

Group Summary:

Robert was determined to go one better than his silver in the last round, playing every match and scoring bonus points to leave nothing to chance in his quest for the prize. This positive attitude paid off as he secured six superb wins to pull well clear in first place. Defending champ Julian defeated Robert in an extremely close match and finished unbeaten from his five matches but this was only enough to become the runner up this time.

Player Comments:

  • "Cannot say this was the finest performance from either of us, at times it felt like the contest of who hits the least number of double faults. The first three games were all tight with Christian taking them all. I managed to get on the board thanks to some double faults from Christian then managed to hold. At 3-3 and 4-3 I got lucky with net cords but Christian got is own back with one at set point. I was struggling with energy in the 2nd set so played slightly more passive. Christian at times was moving me around the court but double faults and unforced errors allowed me to finish off the match. The score line definitely flatters me. Look forward to playing again, hopefully with a better serve % by both of us. Thanks"  -- Michael

Player Comments:

  • "Always enjoyable playing Joe and today was no exception. I was returning aggressively in the first set and allowed me to get a couple of breaks. I got an early break in the 2nd set but it didn't last long. Joe was being more aggressive on his return of serve and it meant I had a few tight holds. On the other hand Joe was serving well and generally holding comfortably so him breaking serve at 4-5 did not come as a surprise. The 3rd set was a battle of serves with each of us holding until 5-5. Joe threw in a couple of double faults at this point which allowed me to break. Somehow I held my nerve to win. Was a great game and look forward to playing again. "  -- Michael

As per usual when we play I got into an early lead before Carsten reeled me back in. The 2nd set was pretty much the same as the first with both of us having spells of serving ok then terribly.

Player Comments:

  • "Kevin got off to the better start and was easily holding serve as well as breaking twice. The next game must have lasted 15 mins but felt like longer. I somehow managed to hold serve then started returning and serving better. Kevin missed a couple of easy shots at 4-3 which gifted me the game and this seemed to be the turning point. I managed to see out 1st set and got into a lead in the 2nd. Kevin fought back from 5-2 down but his 1st serve % had dropped and a few double faults crept in. Unfortunately it was 2 double faults that handed me the match which is never a good way to win. It was a good match with a lot of running from both of us. I think it will be even closer next time. Thanks for the game."  -- Michael

Group Summary:

Luca held his nerve to win numerous tight tussles and he ultimately finishes with a stunning seven wins under his belt to post an unbeatable score at the top. Paul was a "very challenging opponent" for the new champ and although he lost out in their head to head, he recorded hard fought wins in his other five matches, including one against runner up rival Stefano, to claim second place by a whisker.

Stefano took the next 6 games, playing really good tennis. I took a little break before the second set trying to re-focus and things improved for me from there on. The match itself was a curious one... As me and Stefano have similar strengths - we both move well around the court and have good defense - the match ended up being one of slow tennis and very long rallies. Often it was a mistake, lob or drop shot that finished the rally - aggressive winners were thin on the ground. Still, totally enjoyable and great match! Thanks Stefano"  -- Paul

He served and volleyed excellently in the second set, and generally played some excellent tennis. The third set was really tight and cagey. Roger sped off to a 3-1 lead, and I had to fight hard to claw myself back to 3-3, and then 4-4. From there, things really could have gone either way, and with few unforced errors on both sides, there were some long rallies and lots of chess-like points.

Sunkeon Lee bt Fivos Avgerinos (Apr 6) 6-2, 6-4

Group Summary:

There were lots of "enjoyable" games described in group five with Colin v Kevin, James v Kazimieras and Richard v Kevin just a few of the highlights. The congratulations go to Tom who tore through the field to finish unbeaten from his seven matches and deservedly claim the prize. Jeremie and Colin were involved in a close battle for second and in the end their head to head proves decisive. This was a tight game where Jeremie just proved too strong for Colin to take the victory and with it the silver.

Group Summary:

Neal and Joe matched each other stride for stride to finish level on points at the top of the table. There was little to choose between the two on court either with their match ending unfinished as a draw. We therefore need to do some maths to determine the new champ and thanks to fewer sets conceded on average, it is Neal who takes the congratulations this time. A shout out to Raymond who also got four wins on the board and comes home narrowly behind the top two in third.

His come back in the second set from 3-1 down was convincing. We enjoyed some great rallies with many balls on the lines and we were both happy to count those as in per the rules. I would estimate that about half of all games went to deuce and often several deuces. George is a very agreeable opponent and a true sportsman."  -- David
