This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, 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!)
  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • 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 available on the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

"Just wanted to say a quick thank you for making this happen! We're now entering our second round and although it can sometimes prove difficult to orchestrate 4 people (instead of just 2) the tennis has been great fun. Thanks again,"

Tom Brown

"I'm really enjoying the spirit and ethos of this League. It's not about winning and scoring brownie points but meeting new friends who share the same passion for the Sport of Champions. It's the spirit of the game that shines through. Thank you both for organising a really engaging event for anyone who wants to get fit and enjoy the benefits tennis has to offer," 

Stephen Reynolds

"​I have now completed all of my matches in the Manchester Parks local tennis league and it has been a very enjoyable undertaking. I've met many friendly faces who've all shared the same passion for the sport and it was a great opportunity to expand my tennis network of friends,"

J Cullen

Collapse AllManchester Parks Doubles - Round 5 | Thursday 22 August 2019 to Wednesday 30 October 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 25 September 2019)

To get more than three quarters of matches set up and played in doubles (with four diaries to juggle ... never easy) is quite an achievement. And these were impressive, action packed matches. Thanks so much for making it such a good round. Let's do it all again in the New Year!

Group Summary:

All but two matches played in Group One which is a brilliant achievement! Just as pleasing are the generous and supportive commentaries which really bring it all to life. The stand out team was Faiz & Callum who played and won all their matches but there were some tough encounters along the way, not least of which was the dramatic three-setter with Daniel and Tom. In the end Daniel and Tom have to settle for third place with Andrew and Martin avenging their defeat to the pair (another great match) by adding bonus points to earn the silver.

Final Rankings:

  1. Faiz Almansour & Callum Rothwell [W6] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Andrew Barnes & Martin Medina [W3, L3] 10 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

This really close group was decided by a single point, a point earned in an unfinished match between Victoria & Thomas and Francesco & Anuraag. It looked like that was shaping up to be a classic so if a single-set shoot-out has to decide the group winner this was a pretty good one! Well played to both teams on your excellent rounds.
