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.

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!

Chris Jeppesen

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 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

"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!"

Collapse AllLadywell Fields Singles - Round 12 | Thursday 11 October 2018 to Wednesday 5 December 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 7 November 2018)

More than 100 matches were played in another competitive round in Ladywell Fields. Thanks for braving the Autumnal conditions to get on court and well done to everyone who came away with a prize. Hope to see you again after the Christmas break!

Group Summary:

Julian "stayed on top in the decisive moments" to win five matches and with scheduling prowess part of his game too he pulls clear in top spot. George "stuck in there" in his match with the new champ and this paid off as he emerged victorious to inflict Julian's first and only defeat. Sam finished unbeaten from his four matches and scored bonus points, and this sees him narrowly move past George into second . Hats off also to Paul who impressively played all of his opponents.

Reveal CommentGeorge Harris bt Hugh Macnicol (Dec 2) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Great match albeit in blustery conditions. Hugh has definitely improved his game since we last played - getting his consistency up whilst playing aggressively in smart positions and hitting balls low over the net. I'm not really sure how I won - most of our games went to deuce - but it was probably just a matter of more power and coming to the net more... Relieved it ended when it did as my energy was flagging! Cheers man."  -- George

Player Comments:

  • "I thought this was a really strong match with both of us playing well, especially in the first set. Julian broke me mid-way through the first and was serving for the set - fortunately I stuck in there and the momentum changed after the tie break. In the second we were battling against the floodlights turning off which was a bit rushed... But overall we were both timing the ball nicely and it felt like a great battle. Thanks man."  -- George

Player Comments:

  • "This was a very close and cagey match. Paul's massively improved his backhand, and was playing consistently throughout the game. My serve and my forehand were both a bit weak today- Paul went up 3-0 in the second and could've easily won the set. In the end I managed to loosen up a bit and went for my shots more, which seemed to work. Thanks mate!"  -- George

Group Summary:

Lots of memorable matches, bonus points aplenty and an exciting race for the prize in a terrific group two. Joseph played every match and fought hard to win six of these, including a marathon with Sandev, to move to the front of the pack. David was pipped to the post by Michael in another epic encounter but impressively defeated Joseph and picked up wins in his four other matches too, to finish only one point behind in second place. Well played everyone.

Reveal CommentMichael Gibson bt David Chart (Nov 14) 6-4, 4-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "First time David and I had played and as the score suggests we were evenly matched. I started better but was helped by David hitting some double faults and not landing his 1st serve. That changed at 1-4 and coupled with some good returning he broke back and before long it was 4-4. Some good serving got me back on track and managed to break for the set. 2nd set was a role reversal with David getting the early break and me chasing the set. Having got back on level terms he broke me for the set. My serve helped me get to an early lead in the 3rd and although David fought back from 5-2 I managed to hold my nerve for the win. Was a good quality match which was decided by a few key points. Look forward to playing again. Thanks for the match mate."  -- Michael

Player Comments:

  • "I believe every match Carsten and I have played has gone to 3 sets and lasted about 3 hours so this was a relatively short one for us. I got of to the better start but was helped that Carsten wasn't making his big first serves. I knew it was a matter of time before he did and they started coming when I was 5-1 up. With his serve firing Carsten stormed back but I managed to break at 5-5 and hold a tight service game for the set. The 2nd set I returned and served well which I think was the difference. Was a good match with some really good rallies. Look forward to playing again soon. Cheers for the match. "  -- Michael

Player Comments:

  • "It's been a while since I last played Rob and having lost last time round I knew it would be a tough match. It was tit for tat at the beginning and end of the 1st set. Rob edged the set with some really good angled shots which left me scratching my head. The 2nd set I tried to be more aggressive and it helped I was picking my spots better. I had to because when I forced Rob into a passing shot the ball tended to go flying by me. The 3rd set was scrappy and annoyingly we had to shift courts (Rob had cleared all the leaves on ours before I arrived) which made the final few games tricky with the ball hitting leaves. I managed to stumble over the line. Thanks for the match and look forward to playing again. "  -- Michael

Group Summary:

Raf defeated Rob in a war of attrition where "incredible forehand winners, overhead smashes and backhands " were all on show. Rob bounced back from this defeat in the best way possible, winning his next four and bagging bonus points to climb into the lead. It was a tight tussle for the runner up spot with Raf, Joe and Jon all securing three wins apiece to put themselves in the mix. Crucially Raf also picked up bonus points and a set against Jon to leapfrog his fellow challengers into second.

Now Roger was involved in lengthy contests with both Michael and Jeremie, and although his efforts didn't see him emerge the victorious, the two sets he won in these matches gave him the extra points he needed to clinch the prize.
