Friendly, competitive tennis using the NTC courts!

Adult players of all standards are warmly invited to join this friendly league. Everyone is welcome.

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 who works at the NTC
  • 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 (only qualifying matches will be reported for ratings)

Key points

  • We recommend matches are played to short-set format; using the Fast 4 Tennis model. If a set reaches 3 games all, play a mini tiebreak (to 5) but please note our short format form currently doesn't allow you to record the tiebreak so simply chalk up the extra game, eg  3-4. If the match reaches a set all, a matchtiebreak is played (see link on right)
  • However: In this league only, we will accept any best of three set format agreed by the players. But please note, one set matches - including match tiebreaks - will be marked as "to be completed" and only generate the the set played.
  • 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, collected from Tina).
  • 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.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.
