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.

"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

"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

"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

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

Nick Mayes

"Another occasion to congratulate Nigel and Sally on organizing so brilliantly this friendly tennis competition,"

Phil Zana

"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

  • "I'm afraid this was a straightforward victory for Rafael. I played very poorly but on the points when I played well he still had the better of me.. It shows real class to keep your rhythm going when your opponent is giving you very little to work with so well done Rafa! Hopefully I can give you a better game next time."  -- Allan

Player Comments:

  • "Another great match against Patrick with some long rallies and quick net play. Once again it took us two days to compete, I took the first set but Patrick came back to win a tight second set all at West Ham Park. With two hours up we stopped at 3-0 in the third and continued at Lee Valley nice and early. With the three game cushion I just managed to keep Patrick at bay despite some awesome passing shots. Thanks for another great game, until the next time."  -- Avvon
Reveal CommentAllan Kent-Lemon bt Patrick Killing (Aug 12) 7-6 (7-2), 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "What a great match! The first set was not exactly exemplary tennis from either of us, Patrick was stronger from the mid-point but had trouble closing out the set and I managed to claw it back for a tiebreak which I found some form for. The second set was another story, again Patrick was stronger to start and went up 5-3, but not content to go out without a fight I started throwing myself around the court (literally) and pulled it back to a tiebreak again. The breaker was closer this time but I went up few mini-breaks at the start, Patrick pulled it back to 1 but I managed to close it out at 7-5. Thank you mate, you're still ahead on aggregate but I'm coming back ;)"  -- Allan

Player Comments:

  • "After my first match I was determined to get off to a flying start and didn't let Zeppe get into his stride. I was relieved to win the first set but became tight at the start of the second. Zeppe broke me in the first game and held to go 2-0 up. I won the next three; the next two games went with serve. At 4-3 up and with Zeppe now serving there were several deuce/ad points and I missed several opportunities to take the game, which would have put me 5-3 up. Zeppe won that game, to level 4-4. I held serve for 5-4 and in the next game, Zeppe gave me a few looks at his second serve and I took the game set and match 6-0 6-4. Great match Zeppe."  -- Reg
Reveal CommentReg Coker bt Eric Lee (Jul 30) 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Oh my dayz! I don't quite know how I won this match. The first set was very up-and-down There were several exchanges of serves but Eric was more consistent. A good workman never blames his tools but in this case, a switch over to a slightly heavier racket strung with the Babolat RPM blast, that I hated up until that point, provided me with a little bit more consistency. After taking the lead in the second set, Eric came back to level at 6-6. Somehow I steadied my nerve and eeked out a 7-6 second set. The third set was a bit of a blur; somehow I won it 6-1. Great match Eric. It was great to play under pressure. Good luck with your remaining matches. "  -- Reg

In classic amateur fashion, there were few holds of serve and almost every game was a break of serve. Stephen's serve was a definite weapon - hitting two aces throughout the match - but despite that a number of unforced errors sent the first and last set to me after 3 match points. A long slug-out battle that involved lots of long rallies and some great points and going well over our court time!"  -- Paul
