This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

"Fantastic, a lot of fun. At the beginning I was a bit worried about maybe being in the wrong group, but the matches got much harder by the end and I earned a lot of match experience. Thought the communication between you guys and the players was top notch as well. Definitely signing up to the next round and looking really forward to the new challenges of a tougher group!"

Stephen Jones

"I have played a wide variety of sporting events and Local Tennis Leagues continues to be one of the best run competitions I have played in. Enjoyed the company of everyone I played and the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre is more than worth the journey to get there,"

Bruce Stallard

Great fun, thoroughly enjoyed each match. You did a good job in placing us with competitors of similar ability,"

Nick Mayes

"Thanks for organising this new league - it was a good way to keep playing through the winter and I also met 2 players I could play with regularly," 

Benjamin C

"This was my first competitive tennis competition (I normally only play on holiday in a social spirit) and thoroughly enjoyed playing and meeting different players at different venues. I really liked playing at the Lee Valley Courts (we had to play indoors during one match because of heavy wind/rain showers). It would be really good to get a discount on the court hire when we are playing the Lee Valley league matches...  All in all though, a great experience and hopefully if I'm fit next February I plan to play in the next round. Many thanks for the admin and arrangements for these leagues... it is appreciated," 

Cliff Warren

"I'm about to finish my second round and would like to say thank you to the organisers. I think they do a terrific job, everything goes so smoothly like arranging games, submitting scores etc. Participating in the league gave me a taste of competitive tennis and I think I learned a lot of tennis etiquette and thanks to some great opponents learned to enjoy the game even if you are winning or losing!"

Reveal CommentNick Mayes bt Cameron Brooks (Jun 19) 7-6 (7-3), 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A tale of two sets on a muggy evening at Stratford Park. Both players started tentatively but Brooks was soon troubling Mayes with some gorgeous, Federer-esque topspin backhands down the line. Mayes faced two set points on his serve but found his form and clawed it back with a couple of cross-court winners to get the better of the tiebreak. As for the second set... well, we've all been there. Nick left feeling he'd had a lucky escape – with just a bit more aggression and risk-taking Cameron would've had the first, then the second would've looked very different. A young contender to keep an eye on."  -- Nick
Reveal CommentOmer Malik bt Tim Grant (Jun 14) 6-3, 7-5

Reveal CommentNick Mayes bt Tim Grant (Jun 12) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A very entertaining match in, for once, perfect conditions at Lee Valley. Mindful of their gruelling three-set thriller last time, both players started cagily but found some form towards the business end of the first set. Tim's bodyline serving had Nick playing rope-a-dope for much of the second, but the Glaswegian just edged it for consistency in the end. An intriguing rivalry continues..."  -- Nick
