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.

"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

Player Comments:

  • "Another good, enjoyable match on a bright and sunny Sunday morning. Once again the strong winds provided additional challenge for both players who nevertheless persisted and played some good points. Quite a few deuce games with Craig just edging the victory. Thanks for the game Nick and good luck with the move and the dog training."  -- Craig

  • "Another good game with Peter after our recent game in the Newcastle league, albeit in windier conditions this time. Plenty of good rallies throughout and I found my serve at the end to see out a tight second set."  -- Chris
Reveal CommentSimon Addis bt Chris Stanworth (Mar 10) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "On a cold, wet Sunday morning at Richardson Dees, Chris and myself enjoyed a good battle. The weather conditions were not ideal on a increasingly slippy court but both did well, finding rhythm to play out some decent rallies. A lot of close games going to duece early in the match with both of us playing some good winners. Coming from behind 3-2 in the 1st set to take 4 games on the spin to take the set 6-3. The second set finished 6-1, a score which flattered myself with alot of games very close which could have gone either way. Really enjoyed the game with Chris, the first time for myself playing on a hard court in years which i found more comfortable. Thanks for the game Chris. Hope to play see you again in the future. Cheers. Simon"  -- Simon
Reveal CommentCraig Taylor bt Peter McCue (Mar 9) 3-6, 7-6 (9-7), 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Richardson Dees Park in Wallsend proved a fine venue for a very enjoyable and evenly balanced match with lots of deuce games and both players taking turns in the lead. The windy weather conditions were undoubtedly a factor in the final result, however both players benfitted from the occasional wind assisted point and Craig had a fair bit of luck with the net cord. Peter played some excellent tennis and enjoyed the best of the rallies, but in the end Craig's dogged perseverance won out as he edged the victory. Thanks for the game Peter. I look forward to our next match."  -- Craig

Reveal CommentChris Stanworth bt Craig Taylor (Feb 24) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "After I struggled to find availability in the first few weeks of the league, this was a very enjoyable and competitive game to kick the league games off, with not much in it between Craig and I. I rallied from 4-2 down in the first set to secure the set 6-4 with a break following deuce (including a fortunate flukey shot). I led 4-1 and 5-2 in the second before Craig fought back strongly, but I was able to hang on, finishing the set with a break from 30-0 down to take it 6-4. Cheers for the game Craig."  -- Chris

Player Comments:

  • "Craig and myself enjoyed a very blustery afternoon at Beverley Park. Very difficult to get into any rhythem due to the weather conditions but both had fun and enjoyed the afternoon. A lot of deuce games in the 2nd set which could have gone either way but good practise to get some competetive tennis under my belt and a good workout for both in very challenging conditions. Thanks for the game Craig! Simon"  -- Simon

Player Comments:

  • "Played on a cold sunny day at Beverley Park. It's been a while since Nick played so took him a little bit of time to get going and I managed to take the first set quickly. Second set saw some decent backhand winners from both of us and Nick serving better than the last time I played him. I kept my nose in front all the way though and came through unscathed. Cheers Nick, best of luck for the rest of your games! "  -- Paul
Tod Yeadon bt Craig Taylor (Feb 14) 6-1, 6-2
Reveal CommentPaul Kearns bt Simon Addis (Feb 14) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Good game with Simon on a lovely day. I have to echo Warren comments about Simon, his serve and forehand are both decent and with a little more practice and consistency will be valuable weapons for him. As is often the case in the local tennis leagues, the score doesn't really tell the story of the match, there was lots of tennis played & a good few deuces. It was probably that I had a bit more of a killer instinct and hit winners when I created chances that got me over the line, coupled with the odd ace and fewer double faults . He will test a few people in this league, especially with his topspin forehands. Cheers for the game Simon.!"  -- Paul
Reveal CommentPaul Kearns bt Tod Yeadon (Feb 7) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Cold & blustery but really enjoyable game with Tod. A combination of low sun & gusts of winds made it difficult at times. Nonetheless, it was a decent standard of tennis, with both players breaking against the serve in the opponents second service game. At 2-2 in the first set it could have got very interesting but I managed to get my nose in front & stay there to close it out 6-2. Second set I played better, hitting the ball really well at times. Tod served well, hitting more aces than me & less double faults than me. Again I stayed in front & got over the line. Tod played well, covering the court, serving well & putting a few backhand winners away. He will ruffle a few feathers & do well in this league!"  -- Paul
Reveal CommentPaul Kearns bt Craig Taylor (Feb 6) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Decent game with Craig to kick off the League tennis season! It was pretty cold to begin with but we both soon warmed up and considering it was Craig's first game of the year he played some good stuff and covered the court remarkably well. Lots of games went to deuce but the fact I had been hitting more regularly than Craig meant that I able to take most of the key points. Overall it was a good game and a decent workout, Craig has held his own in this league before and will definitely give most people a game this time around!"  -- Paul
