Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, 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!)
  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • 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 available on the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

"Great fun, looking forward to the challenge of the next level up in a few weeks!"

Richard Fowler

"​Love the Local Tennis Leagues! So pleased I entered",

Tessa Killingbeck

" I did join a local club here but it was very small and the social playing opportunities were limited.  So I was really pleased to discover the Local Tennis League.  I’ve made some really good friends who I now play with socially outside the league.  We even have ladies meals out!  I would absolutely recommend the league to everyone!  It’s a perfect way to play people of different standards in a fun but also competitive forum. I also like the incentive of the midway bonus points and free balls.  And maybe one day I’ll win my group again – it’s been far too long since I was the recipient of a winner’s certificate!"

Liz Somerville

"Really enjoyed it and very surprised to have won. I didn't know what to expect regarding the standard but most of the matches were close. Thank you for organising,"

Mark Taylor

"Loved playing again after a break of 20 odd years. This is a great idea and a I can't wait for the league to start again. Really well organised and a joy to be part of. I've been spreading the word so hopefully you'll get a few more people signed up,"

Richard Powell

"[In my last match] it was nice to see we had both improved from our first match - the benefit of having different people to play and regularly tennis. So thanks for running the league, and for everyone for playing the games,"

Stuart Laws

Collapse AllNorwich Parks Singles - Round 32 | Thursday 9 January 2020 to Wednesday 4 March 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 5 February 2020)

A winter-weather defying round with nearly 80% of matches played. That is nothing short of heroic and a real testament to your passion for tennis and your commitment to share the fun of playing tennis with like-minded people. Thank you! Here's to the next round and perhaps, some real spring weather!

Group Summary:

Jaya almost made it two group wins in a row and aided by bonus points came within one point of matching James' tally. But an unbeaten run took James to the top of the table. Daniel did his very best to catch him, commendably managing to get a match played that had been offered as a walkover, to level the points at the top. So it all came down to their head-to-head - a chilly match that went James' way. Well done to everyone for all the effort put in and for battling through storms and all that winter tennis could throw at you. Not a single match was left unscheduled!

  1. James Brabben [W6] 12 WINNER

  • "21st league/competition match, and another close tie that could've gone either way, but I just edged it to go 11-10 up! All 3 sets could've gone either way, with a lot of deuces and long rallies. The third set definitely brought out the best in us the deeper into the set it went. Even with Sam taking a 5-2 lead in the third set, it was only one break and never going to be a straight forward end, with me then serving for the set at 6-5 up. Another classic, I'm sure it won't be the last. Look forward to the next one! "  -- Kieren

Group Summary:

Matthew may have been making his league debut, but this was pretty much the Matthew Cooke show! A terrific run of five straight-sets wins earns him the group win and promotion next time. Elsewhere the matches were harder to come by and with six players on two points the runner's up spot is just a little arbitrary. For the record, the rule-book algorithm gives it to Tim, but take it from us - it was a tie.

Group Summary:

Stefan may have been unbeaten this round but he had to work hard for his group win. Runner up Jesse lead the chasing pack and thanks to a point won in his loss to Stefan was able to close the gap at the top to a single point.

Group Summary:

What a great group with some absolutely brilliant tennis played - and a group winner at his first attempt in Liam who played all and won all his matches (and grabbed bonus points). Not that there weren't challenges to overcome and the on court battles of this round will stand him in good stead as he works his way up the groups. Vikki, Martin and Calum all made sure the race for the top was a well contested won, notching up 12 wins between them. Vikki, thanks in part to bonus points, just grabs the silver. Well played all!

Group Summary:

Belynda and Stephen may not have topped the table this time but tennis is all about match ups, and their terrific "match of the group" is what friendly, competitive tennis is all about. Meanwhile, Ian made it two group wins in a row, adding bonus points to points notched up for no fewer than six great wins. That leaves Jon with the silver and perhaps the bragging rights as he matched Ian for wins, and beat the champ - but didn't add bonus points! If only that illusive seventh match had been played, the group could have been his! Well done Ian and great tennis everyone - an excellent group.

  • "Close and to some extent funny match on a sunny but very very windy day. Opee played very well, much better than when I first played with him. Combination of luck and wind helped me to win, not so much my skill. I am sure next time match will be even closer. "  -- Inga

Reveal CommentIan Brown bt Stephen Howard (Feb 22) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A gusting wind made it difficult to read the flight of the ball at times and the sun added further difficulties towards the conclusion of the match. I had the better game in the first set, but Stephen was unfortunate to lose the second set with nearly all the games going to deuce. Had I not recovered from 0 - 40 in two of the games it certainly would have been Stephen' s set. Thanks for the game and good luck with your remaining matches."  -- Ian

Reveal CommentJon Olpin bt Opee Magnus (Feb 17) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Opee is a very difficult opponent. At times he returned my best shots with interest, but then at others he made unforced errors. The score in the first set did not reflect how close it was, but in the second set Opee lost his confidence, particularly with his serving. I'm sure we'll meet again. Goo luck until then."  -- Jon

Reveal CommentInga Misane bt Julie Cooper (Feb 6) 6-0, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Perfect day for tennis - sunny and calm. Already on warmup I could see that game will be difficult for me as Julie has very unusual spinning low shots. Suprisingly, the first set went smoothly in my favour, Though on the second set Julie managed to take the full advantage of her style and every game was a hard fight for me. I was left with the feeling that would there be a next 3rd set I would not win it."  -- Inga
Reveal CommentJon Olpin bt Julie Cooper (Feb 5) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "I played most of this game in shirtsleeves which was in testimony partly to the lovely Spring weather but mainly to how hard Julie made me work on each point. I managed to sneak a lead in the first set, but had to become from behind in the second. Thanks Julie for a lovely game and stretching me all the way."  -- Jon

Reveal CommentJon Olpin bt Ian Brown (Feb 1) 7-6 (8-6), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "The 40mph winds and low sun at one end made this a bit of a lottery, but despite this it was another terrific game with Ian. Neither of us could work out how I won the first set. The conditions made it so much easier to play at one end than the other, and only 2 games out of 12 in the first set were won at one end. Given this, it looked a certainty that Ian would win the set when he was leading 5-2, and he even had two set points, one of which was lost on a double fault. He was also leading the tie break 5-3 at the good end, but I was lucky enough to have the favourable end from 6-6. This rather knocked the stuffing out of Ian, and combined with the difficult conditions meant Ian wasn't at his best in the second set. Today I was lucky,"  -- Jon
Reveal CommentIan Brown bt Belynda Sharples (Jan 31) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "An ideal morning for tennis. Belynda struggled with my style of play during the match, but in a knock-about after the match she was able to show what a good player she can be, by placing a lot of shots past me. Thanks for an enjoyable match and good luck with your remaining matches."  -- Ian

  • "Very close and very interesting and enjoyable game - one of the most interesting games I ever had. Score does not reflect the real competition we had. I managed to win the second set more quickly onle because Belynda was not very well and got tired sooner. Thank you Belynda for this great macth and good luck with other matches!"  -- Inga

Group Summary:

Another super group - all but three matches played! And again, bonus points played a crucial role, allowing Liz to maximise the value of getting all her matches played, winning five of them and edging points for sets won in her two defeats. Tough on Mike, but his narrow loss to Victoria just prevented him earning the group win. Well done all, and thanks for the nice commentaries!

However we finally managed to get under way on the only court that wasn't soaking wet and what a very enoyable time we had. Both sets were tight, the first was very tight with lots of games going to duece. We had some great rallies using allangles the court allows. The score in the second set didn't reflect how close that was as well. The match could have gone either way. Thank you Liliya for finding a court at the 11th hour and thank you Julie and Peter for agreeing to split the costs of the court."  -- Linda
