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.

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

Phil Zana

"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

"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

"I really enjoyed this round and being able to play several games with other people. Also for the first time, I managed to win a few games. We shared lots of laughs and experiences together. I will def play more :) It just motivates me improve,"

Yading Song

"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 thoroughly enjoyed your  organization, the venues, my opponents and the matches. I will definitely  play in the future. For now the seniors tour starts and it would be too  difficult to combine both. However, I will be back later this year. Thanks  for your work providing a great tournament,"

Bruce Stallard

Player Comments:

  • "Despite the thumping music from the inappropriately placed fun-fare (no, you can't make this up) behind courts 1-3, Zafar and I enjoyed this match. I went up 5-1 in the 1st set but Zafar managed to reel one game back to 5-2. He went on to serve but I broke his serve to take the set 6-2. Zafar took the 2nd set 6-4, using a combination of slices and acute angled backhands. I should've stayed in the moment but my previous defeat to Zafar flashed before my eyes and I tried too hard causing errors. In the 3rd set, we exchanged breaks and there were some lung-busting rallies. Crucially, I held the 9th game to go 5-4 up and won the final game on Zafar's serve to win 6-4. Great match Zafar. Good luck with the remaining matches."  -- Reg

Player Comments:

  • "It is very hard to play David, considering he has very strong forehand and backhand so there was not weak place to explore, on top of that he was directly finishing every short ball I was pushing in his court. I just had to hang in with my defensive style and wait for errors. In the first set I led 4:2 and lost it, while in the 3rd he had 5:3 lead, but then I managed to come back."  -- Ivan

Player Comments:

  • "Tough match, David has an excellent all round game, being able to hit flat or heavy top spin, First set had some tight rallies and score didn’t really reflect the intensity of the games in the set, David hit some great backhanded winners of my serve it was actually a pleasure to watch even though I was trying to win, somehow I pulled through in the first set. Second set was just as difficult with David right pulling ahead 3-1 , I somehow managed to bring it back to 4-4 with some long rallies , then taking the set , Well played David , you have an excellent game , hope to play you soon!"  -- Omer

The second set was more competitive, but I managed to break for 5:4 after my return hit the net and dropped in. That just showed I need a lot of luck to win against him."  -- Ivan

Andrew put down a few aces and lots of un-returnable serves and was attacking the net with success. It was exciting tennis. I snuck through in the end but it was closer than the score suggests.

Player Comments:

  • "Really good game. The first two sets not revealing what a titanic final set there would be. Sam played with a lot of slice which mixed the game up a lot and brought plenty of rewards in the second set. Sam went 2 up in the final set before it went back to serve with a break back and finally at 5-4 on the second match point I prevailed. Great fluctuating spirited match"  -- Winston

Reveal CommentNik Wottge bt David Arnaud (May 18) 6-7, 6-2 David Arnaud Retired

Player Comments:

  • "This match was a bloodbath. David has the ability to mix-up shots beautifully. From tricky drop shots, to dipping down the line forehands, to a perfectly timed slice that lands just inside the base line and skids through the court - it is really difficult to develop any kind of rhythm in your own game whilst facing such a barrage of variation. The points were long and, on a hard court surface, physically gruelling. The first set went to a tie-break with David clinching victory after two slice backhands from Nik went just wide. The brutality of the match took its toll - David’s old knee injury flared up in the second set allowing more winners from Nik to get past. In the end, the injury forced his retirement. I couldn’t walk for a week.."  -- Nik
Reveal CommentNik Wottge bt Winston Balfourth (May 12) 6-3, 4-6, 7-6

Player Comments:

  • "What a great game and in challenging/windy conditions. Winston started slow in the first set but was really seeing the ball in the second. Starting from a 1-4 disadvantage he won the next 6 games consecutively and cruised to a 6-4 victory. He hit several powerful top-spin winners into the open court. The third set started similarly, (down 1-4) but then coming back to a dramatic tie-break finish. A could of strong serves from Nik tilted the balance in the tie-break. What a great game which could have gone either way. Super enjoyable even if a bit stressful! "  -- Nik
  • "Really good match between Nik and myself. The wind did make conditions difficult at times for both of us but a titanic battle ensued. Great spirit and a result that could have gone either way. Both of us had match point at 4-5 and 6-5 in the final set before Nik got the upper hand in the tie break 7-3." Winston

Player Comments:

  • "A very competitive match, played with great intensity and spirit. The first set lasted for around an hour and a half. There were many changes in momentum, with some very long rallies indeed. I made a few adjustments to counter John’s game towards the end of the second set, which I managed to carry through into the second. John responded equally though and continued to fight towards the end which was great. John provided a great challenge as an opponent today, which I enjoyed. "  -- Tamzin

Reveal CommentNazim Haque bt Felipe Kwast Martins (May 4) 6-3, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "The wind really affected both of us today. Being honest Felipe was by far the better player. First set was close. But second set Felipe was far more aggressive, hit more winners and was the better player. The wind just didn't help his attacking game. In the last game, he was serving at 30 all and gifted me an error to make it 30-40 and then served a double fault. If the match had gone to a tie break he was more likely winner and if it had gone to third set I think he would have won comfortably. So bit of a robbery today on my part. But Felipe was the better player and in calmer conditions he will win a lot of matches with his attacking style. Best of luck Felipe."  -- Nazim
