Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a singles league just for women
  • Groups are put together by standard
  • 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 all women 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.

Player Comments:

  • "The sun hasn't even risen when we started our match! Michelle has a great cross court forehand which she put to good use and her movement was very good. With a few more matches under her belt, she should be top drawer. It was a fun match where I tried to make her run as much as possible, which unbeknownst to me, she actually enjoyed! Thanks for getting up early, and hope to play again. "  -- Jacqueline

Player Comments:

  • "Despite the scoreline, I felt we played a high quality match. Lyndsey is a good player with great technique, and her forehand is a big weapon - she hit a few great returns which completely caught me off guard. She also has a positive attacking style which I like. Thanks for the game! "  -- Jacqueline
Reveal CommentJacqueline Li bt Katie Hawkins (Oct 27) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "First time I played Katie in the league, and the games were closer than the scoreline suggests. I thought Katie was very consistent in her ground strokes and I had to play very good shots to get her out of position. We also had a lot of leaves on the court so we were taking care not to slip either! Thanks for the match! "  -- Jacqueline
Reveal CommentJacqueline Li bt Amy Parker (Oct 27) 7-5, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "This was an absolute cracker played in very windy conditions. Every game bar two or three went to deuce, and Amy completely dominated me with her cross court forehand. Her movement was top notch too, covering all areas of the court. Very tight match, and in my mind it is a draw because all the games were so close. Thanks for a gem! "  -- Jacqueline
Reveal CommentJacqueline Li bt Sarah Milligan (Oct 26) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It is always enjoyable to play Sarah, and this time its no different. Conditions were tricky as it was windy on the courts, and I think the wind changed direction a few times. One stand-out shot I remember is a backhand drop shot off what I thought was a good serve! Thanks for the game!"  -- Jacqueline
Amy Parker bt Sarah Milligan (Oct 19) 6-2, 6-4
