Vertical Tabs

This is how it works

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • 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.
  • Players are grouped by 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 played to short-set format; if a set reaches 4 games all, the next game decides the set. If the match reaches a set all, a matchtiebreak is played (see linl on right)
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • Players are grouped according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Everyone in the group plays each other once during the round
  • You get one point for each set you win
  • 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 each group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winners get a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of the groups (and sometimes the top two) are promoted for the next round; those who come bottom (and sometimes the bottom two) are demoted

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!

"I enjoyed it enormously, thank you," 

Tom Emerson

"It's hugely beneficial to my game to play people who are really a class better than me. There was only one whitewash so I wasn't totally out of my depth, just outgunned!"

"I am loving being part of the tennis league – it really makes a difference to my working week. Coming up trumps in the Wimbledon ballot is the icing on the cake,"

Kitty Stewart

"Thanks again for organising the league, this was the first time I had played tennis or a match and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next round!" 

Tom Hilson

"Thanks for organising.  I have enjoyed the matches that I have played,"

"Thanks for the league - it's been thoroughly enjoyable . . I will be sure to join again for February..."
