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.

Reveal CommentStefan Straub bt Alex Mott (Jan 21) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Nice evening match at the boat club. Alex played some good low shots and fast serves but I was playing very well and more consistent. "  -- Stefan
Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt Matthew Pickering (Jan 21) 6-1, 7-6 (7-2)

Player Comments:

  • "Another cracking match with Matt on a cold, dank night in an otherwise empty VP. The first set score looks one-sided but was anything but. I think Matt had break points in all of my service games which I somehow managed to hold on to. Matt got on a roll in the second set to lead 5-3. We both played pretty well throughout with some epic rallies and as usual Matt hit lots of winners particularly off his majestic backhand. "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentStefan Straub bt Tom Courtenay-Evans (Jan 19) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Beautiful morning at Victoria Park, but the low sun made playing at one end of the court a very different proposition to the other! Good match with Tom, it was tight at the start and then I hit some good form and found the corners pretty regularly. "  -- Stefan
Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt Martin Durrant (Jan 7) 2-6, 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Another very enjoyable, tight three setter with Martin. Gusty winds and a skiddy wet surface meant neither of us found much consistent rhythm. As usual very close and could have gone either way. Looking forward to the next one! "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentStefan Straub bt Jean-Baptiste Raymond (Jan 7) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Good match on a windy evening at Leamington. Very pleased with how I played and made the most of home advantage on the astro. JB made some good angled returns."  -- Stefan
Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt Jean-Baptiste Raymond (Jan 4) 3-6, 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Epic match with JB, nearly two and a half hours. JB dominated the first set and went 4-2 up in the second. I managed to claw it back and got on top in the third but JB wouldn't give up saving several match points and I eventually needed a lucky net cord to get over the line. Great match, looking forward to the next one!"  -- Tom
Reveal CommentStefan Straub bt Martin Durrant (Dec 22) 6-1, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Nice match on a sunny morning. I was hitting very well to take the first set and was leading in the second. Then Martin came back with 4 games in a row and made things difficult at the end. Looking forward to our next match."  -- Stefan
Reveal CommentMartin Durrant bt Jean-Baptiste Raymond (Dec 15) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Jean-Baptiste was unlucky to meet me on top of my form. He had game points which he was unable to convert whilst I made very few mistakes in the entire match. I’m sure it will be closer next time. "  -- Martin
Reveal CommentMatthew Pickering bt Alex Mott (Dec 11) 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "This was a bit of an epic match! We started on the artificial clay courts and it was really close. I hadn't played Alex before and was really impressed by how aggressively he was hitting his groundstrokes. Loads of pace and low over the net making it pretty difficult for me to play my normal game. In the next two sets we swapped to the astro as we couldn't keep the lights on the clay. I changed tactics a little and I think the court change also helped as I was able to play a bit flatter and more aggressive. Great match, really enjoyed it, cheers Alex! Well played. "  -- Matthew
Reveal CommentMartin Durrant bt Matthew Pickering (Dec 6) 6-3, 7-6 (12-10)

Player Comments:

  • "Excellent match. Extremely close. Only 2 break points in whole of first set with a single break of serve. 2nd set nip-and-tuck all the way with both of us saving numerous set-points. Thanks Matt, look forward to the decider!"  -- Martin
Reveal CommentMartin Durrant bt Alex Mott (Dec 5) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Started under very windy conditions at Boat Club on Thursday night. Match was at 6-3, 3-1, deuce to me when there was a power cut! Resumed this morning (Sunday) to finish off the match. Very sporting of Alex to agree knowing full well he would be under the weather following a heavy Saturday night. -- Martin"  -- Martin
Reveal CommentAlex Mott bt Jean-Baptiste Raymond (Dec 3) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Cracking game on a cold slippery court, that got more competitive as the match went on. I benefited from a slow start from JB, and my serves staying consistent for once. Thanks for the game JB, look forward to playing again!"  -- Alex
Reveal CommentStefan Straub bt Matthew Pickering (Nov 27) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Always good to play with Matt. We were lucky to get some dry(ish) weather and decent conditions. Like in our last match, I got off to a fast start before edging a much closer second set with a lot of deuce games. There were lots of good rallies from the back of the court and some good forehand winners."  -- Stefan

Good luck for the rest of your matches, Prabjit. "  -- Martin
