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.

Player Comments:

  • "A nice match with Darin's drop shots being very effective!"  -- Luca
Reveal CommentMatthew Pickering bt Jean-Baptiste Raymond (Feb 13) 4-6, 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "JB played a great first set where he really moved me around with consistent ground strokes and played some great volley winners too. We traded breaks of serve several times before JB eventually took the set. In the next couple of sets he continued to play great and I began to play better too. We had some awesome rallies in the last two sets and it was still very competitive. It was a great match and great fun throughout! Cheers JB "  -- Matthew
Reveal CommentSunny Rai bt Jean-Baptiste Raymond (Feb 11) 7-5, 6-2

Match Results:

Reveal CommentRod Bond bt Sally Thurston (Feb 12) 7-5, 4-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A slight odd start to the match where it took 7 games for one of us to hold our serve. The game then settled down and became a great contest. A close 1st set followed by a good come back set for Sally, which she continued into the third. At 1-3 down in the 3rd I found my rhythm again (but not my serve) and won 5 of the next 6 games to win. Sally played well, particularly in the 2nd set and we both could have done without the food we ate before the match... thanks for an entertaining match"  -- Rod
Reveal CommentMartin Gray bt Andy Silver (Feb 10) 5-7, 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "As ever with Andy, a lot of deuce games - although I think it’s fair to say neither of us were delivering top quality tennis..... We were pretty lucky with the weather - relatively calm, no rain and not too chilly so long as we kept moving. Thanks Andy - see you in the next round!"  -- Martin
Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt Rod Bond (Feb 7) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A very enjoyable match with Rod under floodlights at VP. Rod found his form at 3-0 down in the second set and the rest of the match was very hard fought."  -- Tom
Reveal CommentSally Thurston bt Neil Russell (Feb 5) 6-2, 4-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "What a hideous evening for a match! We battled it out in the rain and had a cracking match ... I really enjoyed the tennis, but not the conditions. Well played Neil! "  -- Sally
Reveal CommentMichael Wonnacott bt Sally Thurston (Feb 4) 7-5, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A great game with sal as always and a very close first set! I've never played a game with so many interruptions, alarms, balls, jewellery, lights, more jewellery! But we got through it :)"  -- Michael
Reveal CommentRod Bond bt Lisa Cooper (Feb 2) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Good game Lisa, took a while to warm up and the games, especially in the 2nd set, were a lot closer than the score suggests. Thankfully the court wasn’t frozen!"  -- Rod
Reveal CommentMichael Wonnacott bt Martin Gray (Feb 2) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Such a close match! Martin was playing well with a lot of excellent down the line shots off some of my best serves. I always look forward to matches with Martin as they're always close with only a few points here or there deciding the match. "  -- Michael
Reveal CommentSally Thurston bt Andy Silver (Feb 2) 2-6, 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Possibly a bit too early, a bit too cold and a bit too icy. But we battled it out. Thought it would never end at one point ..... looking forwards to a summer match with you Andy! Well played."  -- Sally
Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt Neil Russell (Jan 31) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "An enjoyable match with Neil, several games going to deuce and lots of good rallies in a chilly VP. "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentAndy Silver bt Rod Bond (Jan 27) 6-4, 4-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A game that could have gone either way due to the conditions (the wind was certainly winning most of the match with gusts over 40mph). Andy eventually over game the conditions better and came back from 4-2 down in the final set to win the last 4 games. Well played Andy"  -- Rod
Reveal CommentMichael Wonnacott bt Rod Bond (Jan 21) 3-6, 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A great 3 setter with Rod to get the league started. If it could get a bit warmer though, that would be great! "  -- Michael
Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt Martin Gray (Jan 20) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable game with Martin which was far closer than the score line suggests with many games going to deuce. One end of the court was rather slippery which was a challenge but nonetheless there were a lot of good rallies. "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentMartin Gray bt Neil Russell (Jan 18) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "As ever, a really enjoyable match with Neil - with many games going to deuce. I suspect I had a bit of an advantage as Neil was coming off a run of night shifts - hardly ideal preparation for tennis, I suspect...... Thanks for the game, Neil - see you in the next round!"  -- Martin
