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!

"Brilliant! Met some great people who I continue to practice with. The league is a great way of getting back into tennis (I hadn't played for about 15 years)! Especially given the membership prices of some of the clubs! Looking forward to moving up a league which I know will be harder but it can only improve my game. Many thanks!", Keith Wood

  • "Always an enjoyable match with Keith. Lots of competitive rallies and some nice winners from both of us. Shot of the day was a beautiful drop volley from Keith after I thought I'd given him the run around and done enough to win the point!"  -- Stuart

Player Comments:

  • "Another competitive game, although I don't think either of us were at our best. Really tight first set with quite a few mistakes from both players and sadly lots of double faults. Neither player really got into any rhythm throughout the match. Still it was a competitive, enjoyable match with some decent rallies in both sets. "  -- Paul
Reveal CommentPaul Kearns bt Chris Deeney (Jul 24) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Another good, really enjoyable game with some decent tennis played. I served oretty well which kept me ahead for most of the match, Chris caught me on a good day when I probably played my best tennis in the league so far. Still his first and really strong second serve caused me a good few problems and with more consistency the match would've been a lot closer. There were a few high quality rallies and some of the rallies in the match were the hardest and fastest I have faced in the league to date. I don't think the scoreline was the truest reflection of some of the points we played. Cheers for the game Chris, I'm sure the next one will be closer!"  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "Double duty for myself and David this evening (got to take advantage of the nice courts at Beverley when the opportunity presents itself). I think fatigue had set in for both of us by the time we were both in our fourth set of the evening. A little bit more consistency from me perhaps gave me the edge on the night."  -- Stuart

Player Comments:

  • "Another fun, competitive match. Paul's strong serving and decisive play was too much for me in the first set, and he looked to be cruising to victory in the second at 4-1 before I fought back to 4-4 with serve....only to get broken to love and see my chance to take the match to a decider slip away. A much deserved win for Paul, well played sir."  -- Stuart
