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.

Reveal CommentRob Slade bt Jonathan Scally (Oct 19) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • ". Lot of hard fought close points games and some long rallies. 90 minutes of play, 3.5 miles run, 75 mins of cardio for me (hpm > 110), and, rare for me, 5 mins of peak heart rate. Good workout. Jon had the best shots (his inside out forehand is excellent), & won two games mainly with his big serve. The LTA recently realised that people like a hot shower after a game and coffee lounge with coffee and comfy seats to relax and talk after the match, so they give grants for this. Councils haven’t worked this out. Today at Liverpool there wasn’t even cold water in the showers & the hot drinks machine has been broken for two years. You can shower at the Aquatic Centre but they have the same broken Kenko hot drinks machine. "  -- Rob

Player Comments:

  • "This was a really enjoyable match, very physical, James is a strong runner and I found myself bent over double after points quite a few times which is unusual for me.

Player Comments:

  • "The first set was just one of those where everything I hit went in, and the opposite for Carl. The second set I cooled off and Carl improved, so was obviously a lot closer. There was a couple of tight games in the middle of the set that could of changed the momentum but I managed to get them and that carried me through to the win. Competitive match with a good friendly chat afterwards, thanks a lot Carl."  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyable game played with Raul. The court was still a little wet from rain and the sun was going going, which was a challenge for both of us. Raul is a great player and played some great shots. I thought I was making a come back in the second set when I was 1-4 up, but then Raul upped his game and won 6-4. Hope we play again," -- Ian

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet Ben. We were both a bit rusty after a few weeks without a game. Ben won many points against me and it felt like he won every long rally. He just needs to get more of his serves in. Hopefully play Ben again as he is a nice guy."  -- Jonathan

  • "Great to meet and play Jon who was making his debut in the local tennis leagues. Jon grew into the match and we played some excellent rallies. The second set was evenly matched and at 4-3 up I managed to win the key game in the set which Jon was close to making it 4-4. Look forward to playing Jon again.. cheers Steven "  -- Steven
Reveal CommentSteven Segerberg bt Damon Daniels (Sep 22) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play Damon again at a top indoor court. The first set was 2-2 and finely balanced but I took a lot of the key points. Most games in this match went to deuce so the overall score does not truly reflect the closeness of the match. Damon’s serve is of very high quality and you have to be on guard. Cheers for the match Damon.."  -- Steven
Reveal CommentDamon Daniels bt Raivis Turkupols (Sep 21) 7-5, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play against Raivis again today, really enjoyable match. His serve is one of the best when he gets it in, a bit more consistency on the first serve and he's going to cause a lot of players a lot of trouble! Thanks again for the match, hopefully play again in future too"  -- Damon
