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:

  • "It was great to meet Carl at Sefton Park. The match originally started on the last Sat. (24th Nov.). But after we got 1 set each, it was 4pm and getting dark. So we had to postpone the final set until today. I think the one week break before the final set worked well for me today. I cannot imagine how I could play the final set, if we could continue to play on the last Sat. after the 25 games. Thanks for the match, Carl. I look forward to playing with you again."  -- Atsushi

Reveal CommentSteven Segerberg bt Danny Woodworth (Oct 27) 6-2, 7-6 (9-7)

Player Comments:

  • "Another tight match with Danny at Mossley Hill in glorious autumn sunshine. I always feel with these league matches the first set is always a crucial one and I was lucky to enough to get off to a good start. The second set was a fantastic battle that could have gone either way. 2-1 up and 40-0 up I let it slip and Danny broke me to go back level. I then found myself 5-3 up but Danny then fought back again to go 6-5 up. I couldn’t face a third set. I managed to take it to a tiebreak. 4-0 up I then let it slip again as Danny got level again. I eventually crawled over the line 9-7 with an awful lot of relief. Cheers for the match Danny. Great courts in Mossley Hill."  -- Steven
Reveal CommentSteven Segerberg bt James Campbell (Oct 20) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Don’t be fooled by the score. James is a great addition to the league who will no doubt shock a lot of players with his strengths which will only improve with time and matches. His cross court shot is a serious weapon. Every game of the second set was a deuce game which just shows how close it really was. Good luck James in the rest of your matches and I look forward to playing again soon. "  -- Steven
