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.

We were likely keeping service games each other but after 3-3 at 2nd set, strangely we start to break each other's service games. It was enjoyable match and I'm hoping to play with Anees soon again."  -- Atsushi

Player Comments:

  • "Another great battle of the balds with Tony. Tony came flying out the blocks for our early start and went 3-0 up. But with the matches we’ve had to date we both knew the match had twists along the way as was the case. I then managed to somehow win the next 6 games to take the set. I then found myself 3-0 up in the second set. Tony then took 2 games to take us to the key game in the set. Tony had several game points to make it 3-3 but I somehow stayed in the game before eventually getting a break point and taking it with my first attempt. This was the key game and I then took the set. These are incredible matches with Tony and I look forward to our next battle. Cheers Tony"  -- Steven
Reveal CommentMatthew Burns bt Javier Porras (Aug 10) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "It was great to meet Javier-Unfortunately (or fortunately in my case) because of inclement weather we opted for an indoor match. Luckily (as i'm used to playing indoors more) it allowed me to get off to a quicker start than my previous matches. Javier can attack well at the net and that can be dangerous-just today my service game was more consistent. I hope we get chance to play again."  -- Matthew

Player Comments:

  • "Very enjoyable game in warm, sunny conditions, and we had lots of good, competitive points and games. Ive had a lot of matches lately, and that was a big help as the key today was consistency, and I won basically because I kept my mistakes to a minimum. Raul played some great points, hes lightning fast around the court, but his lack of matches showed as he simply made more mistakes than I did. I think when Raul gets more matches under his belt the result will be a lot tighter. Thanks a lot for the game, really enjoyed it."  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet Steven for the first time, and we had a very friendly and competitive match played in a great spirit. The first set was obviously tight and could of gone either way, i saved some break points at 1-3 which gave me some momentum that i managed to carry through. i really got my legs going in the second set and defended well, which i had to as Steven has a nice hooked forehand that had me running into the corners on a lot of points. Thanks a lot for the game Steven, look forward to playing again."  -- Paul

  • "This was a mammoth (3 hours plus) match with Tony that could have gone either way. Tony was very consistent with deep top spin balls that kept me back. After being 1-4 down in the third, I was happy to maintain both mental and physical endurance to come back and take the match by a fine margin. It would be great to play Tony again!! "  -- Matthew
Reveal CommentPaul Scallion bt Javier Porras (Jul 12) 7-5, 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "This was a really fun match as Javier has a very aggressive, attacking style that Ive barely played against before. I can normally rely on my defence but not much chance of that today, the majority of points were won due to Javiers good play or his mistakes, his net approaches in particular were probably the best ive faced. I tried to get to the net a lot more than I usually would, simply to keep Javier away from there, and that did work to some extent. Both sets were obviously extremely tight and could of went either way, I think because I'd had a couple of games in the week I had the advantage of match sharpness that helped see me through. Thanks for the game Javier, very enjoyable."  -- Paul
Reveal CommentPaul Scallion bt Brendan McCrudden (Jul 10) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Another very sporting match played in a great spirit. The difference in this match was consistency, Brendans good shots were at least as good as mine, but he couldnt produce them enough to really get into the match. He mentioned that he was starting up again after a long break, I'd say once he gets some matches under his belt he'll be a dangerous opponent. Thanks for the game."  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "Played in damp conditions at Birkenhead Park this, as the scoreline suggests, was a great match that could of gone either way. The match was also a very sporting game played in an excellent spirit. I had a decent lead in the second set but Tony was getting better and better as the match went on and battled back really well to take it. I didnt fancy my chances in the the third and to me it felt like Tony was playing the better, but I managed to sneak through at the end. The best match Ive had in the leagues so far, hugely enjoyable, thanks a lot Tony. Look forward to playing again, but not not too soon like!"  -- Paul

First set was very tight and i was happy to get over the line - but Dikshant came storming back in set two and forced the decider. In the third set it was with serve for 5 games and felt like it was heading for another tie break - luckily i managed to get the break and see it through but another day it could easily have been Dikshants match.
