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.

"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!"

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!

Chris Jeppesen

"​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!",

Player Comments:

  • "It is always fun playing Carsten and today was a real topsy turvy match. Neither of played great but was some really good rallies. 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. We decided to play the breaker rather than the 3rd set or else we could still be playing! Looking forward to our next epic contest. "  -- Michael
Reveal CommentMichael Gibson bt Kevin Erlicher (Apr 15) 6-4, 6-4

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

Player Comments:

  • "Ben has beaten me in both our previous meetings, but a combination of me having a really good day and Ben not playing as well as he can, meant I took the victory this time. Ben has a brilliant forehand so I tried to steer clear of that side of the court and used my cross court backhand as much as I possibly could. My serving was also better than in recent months, which kinda took the pressure off the rest of my game. Thanks Ben for the match!"  -- Paul

Great game and credit to Ben for the challenging match. "  -- Luca
