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!

"Just wanted to say a big thank you for organising the league and encouraging folk to play. I've thoroughly enjoyed the experience and met some new people to play social tennis with,"
Jane Peacock

"I've absolutely enjoyed every minute of my tennis. ...it's been great fun. I've learnt so much from each player and has taken away some of my fears of playing singles. Although I didn't win any of my games I had a lot of matches to deuce which shows me how much I've improved. Thank you very much for all your hard work and look forward to next round. ..", Maureen Hutchby

Maureen Hutchby
"Absolutely loved my last round, fantastic format and met some really marvellous people. All matches had positive comments from our group and we played on some terrific courts here in Nottingham. Only problem for me, is that I feel I'm more suited to playing doubles. Full credit to your time and effort in making this work and I'm absolutely sure it will get stronger and bigger. I wish you every success for the future."

"​V. Good feedback. Much appreciated. I will be registering in the next league,"

Player Comments:

  • "Difficult game in very windy conditions. Think I might have benefited from this being Maciej's first game in Div 1 after being promoted from Div 3, as he gradually got better as the match went on and I feel he will improve further in future matches. He definitely hit the shot of the match - a blistering forehand passing shot on the run when I thought my volley had won the point!!!"  -- David

One game I particularl on his serve at 5-3 went to endless deuces until finally I broke only to loose the set later. The third set was played with some very tired limbs - more instinct than skill. Great match and well played!!"  -- Mark
