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  singles league just for women
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For all women!
  • 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!

"​Loving this league! Games are close and competitive even when the scoreline suggests otherwise and the opportunity to play ladies singles is a godsend to a keen player like me who has tried and failed to join any local clubs in the area due to the prevalence of doubles. The matches in this league have given me the confidence to enter tournaments for the first time ever this summer!", Victoria Chubb

"Just thought I’d say how enjoyable the first Norwich Parks ladies league has been and I’ve signed up for the next one,"

Player Comments:

  • "Some great rallies and a number of games going to deuce. Kelly came back in the second set from 3-0 to 3-3 which was unsettling as I was exhausted from my earlier game with Vikki and other exercise. Somehow I soldiered on to take the second set. I couldn't face a third. !"  -- Mary

Reveal CommentVictoria Chubb bt Kalliopi Moysiadi (Aug 12) 7-6 (7-5), 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet and play Kelly again on a beautiful summer afternoon at Thorpe rec. This was a very intense match. Nip and tuck all the way in the first set wrapped up with a close tie break with Victoria eventually prevailing. Victoria built a 4-0 in the second before Kelly clawed her way back to make it 3-4. The match finally concluded when Victoria managed to hold serve and break Kelly after several deuces. The famous coach Brad Gilbert often talked about winning ugly. With Kelly's ability to hit consistent deep and high balls to victoria's backhand and Victoria 's serve deserting her, I now know what it means to stay in the game and find a way to win when your game is off! Winning ugly! "  -- Victoria
