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.

During this time I managed to play consistently in every session and enjoyed every moment of it meeting many great players and learning from their experience.

Dan got off to quite an aggressive start going up 2-0, but I managed to level it 2-2 and then got used to the ball staying quite low on the testing wet surface. Managed to close out the 1st set 6-2. And the 2nd set went a similar way 6-2. Thanks again to Dan for coming over to Ashby on a pretty ordinary evening. There was no-one else out at ACLTC.....which tells you all you need to know."  -- Stephen

But from 3-1 to 3-2 I felt more than a glimmer....and I was able to then convert at 6-4. One set all...game on. However tiredness became a factor - the 3rd set was a well fought affair, but somehow I closed it out 6-0. Although the scoreline does not reflect how hard fought this set was. Darryl is one tough player, and I enjoyed our game very much. Hope Leicester beat Newcastle in a bit mate. Steve."  -- Stephen

Player Comments:

  • "Another superb game against Aaron, as usual it was tough but fun. A nervy start in the 1st set saw 3 breaks of serve in the first 3 games! :) I then managed to hold and break to lead at 3-1, then Aaron started his fight back including winning a service game when he was 0-40 down, at 5-5 I managed to break once again and then took the set on my 3rd set point after choking like Konta on the first two. Second set was pretty much the same pattern, I took the early lead, the mid game was all about Aaron and his flat forehand shots that racked up winner after winner, I then got another late break and served out the match. What a game! There were so many fantastic winners, crazy volleys and long rallies. Thanks mate for another top game👍"  -- Lin

Player Comments:

  • "It was my third game against Tom in the leagues and to start with I thought Tom was going to win this one and break my 100% record. The last time we played it was probably about 2 years ago and Tom has really improved his game since then. Tom started off really well firing some great first serve winners in his first two service games. Then midway through the first set I broke serve which seemed to have thrown him off his faultless play and result in him making errors and a few double faults. The second was a similar story and I'm just glad to have kept my play consistent and get the win unlike in the last couple of matches I have lost. Well played Tom and thanks for an enjoyable match at your club (Carisbrooke) on the lovely savannah court

  • "An epic 3 setter again!! It was so tight throughout Shuaib served 5 double faults at the end of the first set which handed me the set I had a poor game in the second set which ultimately cost me the second set. Third could have gone either way we were both playing well but I broke early to take a 3-0 lead only for it to go to 5-4 Shuaib serving so I thought a tie break was inevitable. But I long game which I broke and won the match. I think that’s now 2-2 in our meetings can’t wait for the next epic. Well played"  -- Aaron

Player Comments:

  • "A marathon 2.30 hours match! I took the first set and was up 3-0 in the second when Shuaib found his form to take 5 games in a row, I broke his serve only then to lose the set on my own serve. With a change in tactics in the third I quickly took the first 4 games, then Shuaib once again upped his game when under pressure to take the next 3 games. The eighth game was pivotal, feeling rattled that I lost the early lead yet again I struggled to serve and faced two break points at 40 – 15, I then wrote this game off, this somehow relaxed me and I found my serve again to save both break points and eventually won the game after many deuces, spurred on by this unexpected win I broke Shuaib’s serve to take the match.

I dug deep though and with my back screaming at me to stop I managed to open up a big lead by edging the many deuce games we had. It was the same story in the 3rd, lots of gut busting rallies and great shots, but I kept the score board ticking over in my favour only for Aaron to pull it back from 5-1, to 5-4.

In the second set Chris upped the aggression level, he went for more winners especially from his forehand side and approached the net more, there were times I was really on my back foot, sprinting around the court just to scoop the ball back and hoping it would produce an unforced error lol.

Player Comments:

  • "What a match..... the scoreline definately doesn’t give it justice but when the first 4 games went to deuce we knew we were in for a long match. Some great play throughout the match also some lapses of concentration. This match definately ebbed and flowed and I was nervous after the first set as Tom was playing really well. Good luck in your remaining matches mate and I’m sure we’ll meet again"  -- Aaron

Player Comments:

  • "Brilliant match played on the quiet and pristine public courts in Loughborough. Second set was very competitive as Phil moved up a gear and his consistency improved noticeably, we had plenty of long rallies and I had to dig deep in the end as Phil threatened a late come back. Good luck in the rest of your games. "  -- Lin

Reveal CommentOwain Ford bt Shuaib Variava (Sep 12) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "It was great to be back, having missed the last round through injury. I was very pleased in the first set, racing to a 4-0 lead only for Shuaib to work out my serve and claw a couple of games back. The second set was a completely different story. Both of us winning and dropping serve and most games going to deuce! Lots of tactical play from us both. It was a hell of a set and I’m glad to come out the other side with the points. I don’t think I could have managed a third set!!!! Shuaib is a gentleman and I wish him all the best for his future matches. I think this group will be very competitive indeed. "  -- Owain
