Revision information
Provide an explanation of the changes you are making. This will help other authors understand your motivations.

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

A much quieter round to start off 2017 in North Tyneside with a only a handful of matches played. Thanks to everyone who made it onto the court, we hope your enthusiasm is matched by more players in the next round. Please do continue to help spread the word, we'd love for the league to grow this year !

Group Summary:

A shame to see so few matches played in this round - we know the weather does not always make it easy to get matches during the winter months but please do let us know next time if there is anything we can do to help. Kudos to Bill who not only managed to get on court three times but also stormed past his opponents to collect three victories and the group prize!

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentBill Dunn bt Peter McCue (Feb 3) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Peter agreed to play at my home club giving me the advantage, he had not previously played on synthetic grass either, I'd already played in a doubles set so I was warmed up before starting hence the 6-0 1st set score. The 2nd set was much closer we had several deuces. I enjoyed the match and will meet up with Peter at his Pickleball club which sounds interesting."  -- Bill
