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:

  • "A good match with a somewhat flattering scoreline for me. About 15 minutes of play was taken up by a single game where I had to fight tooth and nail to hold my serve for 1-1 in the second set, if James had broke me there I'm sure the match would have had a very different feel. Some good shots played by both, some excellent chase downs by James in particular. In the end I think my more consistent serving probably won me the day."  -- Stuart
Reveal CommentPaul Kearns bt Stuart Mcgowan (Jul 8) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "I haven't been in great form recently and Stu admitted that it had been a while since he had played, so this was never gonna be a classic! Although not at the levels of the games we have played in the past, it was still a decent match considering. It was pretty even early on with both players holding serve for the 1st few games. I managed to nick a break and keep my serve to stay in front. Stuart's natural angle from the left hander puts a lot of pressure on your backhand and after a ropey start I managed to start hitting reasonably well on that side, even managing a couple of winners. 2nd set followed a similar pattern and I held on for the win. Cheers for the game as always Stu!"  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "A close, lengthy match played in the early evening . I have played Chris several times before and our matches are always close but- prior to this one- with him coming out on top - on this occasion I made fewer errors than previously and managed to close out the first set 6-3. The second set was nip and tuck and could have gone either way largely going with serve - at 6-5 with Chris serving looked like we were headed for a tie break and also when I lost two match points but luckily just managed to squeeze out the third one . As always with Chris an enjoyable game played in good spirit over nearly 2 hours "  -- Peter

Player Comments:

  • "A very good game played on a pleasant evening. Peter played some wonderful tennis throughout and had me covering for a lot of the court. A mid-match blip had me down 4-1 in the second set but managed to put a run together to see the game out. Good luck for the rest of the competition Peter. "  -- Sam
