Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

"Just wanted to write and say a big thank you for all your work in organising and administering the Northampton Parks Tennis League.  I have thoroughly enjoyed playing in this round, meeting some lovely opponents and developing my game too I hope.  Thank you very much, I look forward to the next round," 

Simon Matthews

"I have enjoyed both rounds that I've played in. Easy to arrange matches, competitive yet friendly.", 

Neil Fox

"I got my free tennis balls this morning  - thanks very much, a very impressive fast and efficient  'service' (unlike mine)!"

Karen Slater

"It was my first time entering a local tennis league and it was brilliant! I had some tough matches which were thoroughly enjoyable and met a few people who I'll hopefully play again many more times. I look forward to playing another set of people in group 1 next time.",

The score does not reflect the effort and skills of Graeme who is new to the Local Tennis League and will be a force to be reckoned with in the future!
