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

Player Comments:

  • "A beauftiful summer morning in Souter Park. Both players, returning to the game after a considerable absence, struggled to find form. Inevitably, the match was decided more by mistakes rather than winners, but both players enjoyed the game and felt they were improving gradually throughout."  -- Craig
Reveal CommentPaul Kearns bt Nicholas Rowe (Jun 21) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A combination of Nick struggling with his serve and struggling with my serve a bit meant that this never really got started as a contest. Good luck for the rest of your games mate"  -- Paul
Reveal CommentPaul Kearns bt Michael Tate (Jun 19) 6-0, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A decent game with Michael. A few double faults from him in the first set and it taking him a little while to get to grips with my serve meant that the first set wasn't as close as the second. In the second set he served much better and there was a lot more tennis, lots of decent rallies and deuce games. He was unlucky at 3-4, missing a decent chance at 30 all, and then I managed to close the set out. It was an enjoyable game and I'm sure Michael will pick up a few points and give everyone in this league a good game!"  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "A match that was much closer than the score suggests. Banin was returning to tennis after a long break but she quickly found her touch in 3 very tight initial games. Peter just managed to win many of the critical points but it was a very enjoyable game played in both good spirit and lovely weather "  -- Peter
