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.

Player Comments:

  • "You could have quite simply flipped a coin to decide the outcome of this match is was that closely contested. This was one of the best matches I've been involved in and it was played with great spirit. First time I've played Tony but from the first serve the rallies we had were outstanding. Me and Tony were very similar with Tony having the stronger serve. There were no losers in this 3 hour epic. Look forward to playing part 2 Tony. Cheers"  -- Steven
Reveal CommentDamon Daniels bt Benjamin Wong (Apr 19) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play against Ben again in this new league, having played against him last time out as well. It was a very enjoyable sunny match at Princes Park - let’s hope this nice weather sticks around for all the matches! The match itself looks quite straightforward, but Ben was completely new to the sport in the last league, and whilst the score line hasn’t changed, this match was much closer than it looks. Bens serve is consistently in more often, and the backhand & lobs have improved massively. I look forward to playing again in future leagues, and best of luck with the remaining matches Ben"  -- Damon
