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 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 Sunny Rai (Apr 12) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great first match of the new league, lots of good shots and rallies. Both sets were probably decided by a couple of games in the middle of the set which went my way. "  -- Stefan
Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt Matthew Pickering (Apr 10) 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7-4)

Player Comments:

  • "The first game set the tone for the match, going to several deuces. I managed to edge into an early lead 3-1 but this only seemed to fire Matt up and I think he won the next 8 games in a row, killing me with his great drop shots and stunning passes. At this point I was just hoping to win a couple of games to make the score respectable. I managed to claw myself back into the match and took the second set 7-5. I took the momentum into the final set and at 5-3 up and Matt 0-30 down on his serve, I sensed victory. Then the lights went off! After a short delay to top up the meter, Matt won the next 3 games to lead 6-5. We both had our chances to win after that but I just scraped through. Thanks for a great game Matt and good luck for the rest!"  -- Tom
Reveal CommentRay Edmonds bt Neil Cockrell (Apr 6) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "An enjoyable match with Jonathan, although to be honest, probably not the finest quality tennis to have graced Victoria Park! To my surprise, my serve was actually quite good in the first set, and definitely gave me the edge...but back to normal in the second set, making it much closer with a few long deuce games and some good rallies along the way. All the best for the rest of your games Jonathan. "  -- Andy
Reveal CommentRod Bond bt Andy Silver (Apr 7) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "The usual winning games against the serve start for both of us. I settled down quicker to win the first set. The 2nd set was harder fought and most games went to deuce. Well played Andy and good luck in the rest of the league matches."  -- Rod
