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.

Reveal CommentMichael Grieve bt Adam Berk (Nov 3) 6-4, 3-6, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Inverleith Park was waterlogged so we played at Victoria Park where the surface was still damp and slippery but playable. The first set could have gone either way. Adam's serve became more accurate and difficult to return as the match went on and he deservedly drew level in the second set. After a short rain delay, we played a final set and I found a bit more consistency to win it. "  -- Michael

The first set could have been anyone’s but luckily I managed to take it to the tie break. The second set again started with breaks if serve with us both knowing the key was to break and then hold- easier said than done!

The low sun, barely rising above the Sciennes rooftops, shone straight into the eyes of whichever of us was on that side, making for an entertaining guessing game trying to anticipate where the ball would land, but it was great to be out playing on a day like this. Thanks for the match, Sarah; you'll learn quickly, I'm sure, and the score will be very different next time we meet. "  -- Eve

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable match with Lutz. We had not played each other before in the leagues. Both sets were very close with lots of tight matches going to long deuces. The game swung easily each set. We decided on the tie break as a third set due to the light and length of the first two sets. The tie was as tight as the first two set. I was very lucky to squeeze out a win in the tie break. Great match again Lutz and many thanks."  -- David

Reveal CommentEve Boyle bt Graeme White (Nov 3) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A drizzly evening in Edinburgh, though the weather was less of a distraction than the great tennis being played out in the final of a U-18 tournament on the next court. These impressive youngsters had their families and coaches filling the park benches usually occupied by the local topers, one or two of whom slummed it by standing to watch us instead. These guys probably watch more tennis than anyone else round here - I bet they'd make great Wimbledon pundits! Back on court, we had an enjoyable match. In this league I don't think I have met anyone as quick as Graeme in stepping up to the net to bury a volley way beyond my reach; it was never easy to find a way past or over him. Thanks, Graeme, and good luck with the rest of your games!"  -- Eve

Player Comments:

  • "Despite the weather and the court surface being just on the edge, we decide to give it a go and have been rewarded.

Player Comments:

  • "A lovely autumn afternoon on the Meadows, even though the usual fresh breeze swirled around the courts. This was a match played in a good spirit, and at times felt much closer than the score suggests. Good luck with the rest of your matches Liam - and use that backhand slice more often, it'll win you plenty of points! "  -- Eve
  • "Lovely fresh day, though typically blustery and so was quite unpredictable at times. Eve rarely hits wide or long and so was very difficult to take points from, though nevertheless it was a joy to play. All the best with your future games, Eve, and hope to play you in a future league...." -- Liam

Collapse AllMeadows, Edinburgh Doubles - Round 7 | Thursday 18 July 2019 to Wednesday 25 September 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 21 August 2019)

We hope others can follow your example and join our next doubles round - a few more teams would really add to the excitement. Well done for playing the vast majority of the available matches and here is to getting back on court soon.

Group Summary:

A little too straightforward for Liam & Jamie who make it back to back group wins thanks to four pretty straight forward wins. Congratulations to them not only for the strong tennis, but for getting all their matches played. David & Philipp were the strongest of the chasing pack and earn the silver. No commentaries to add more colour to the proceedings but we hope the matches were fun!
