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.

I'm new to the League and played my first (ever) singles match last night. Was a bit nervous that I'd meet an opponent of a way better standard, but it is testament to your player questionnaire that we were very well matched. Really enjoyed myself and can't wait for the next one! Thank you. And if you are a player who is umm-ing and aah-ing about taking part - just go for it!

Ali Hudson

"The last round was the best I've played in - lovely opponents and we completed all our matches! Roll on the next round," Ali Hudson

Ali Hudson

"I just wanted to write and thank you again for all the work that you do in organising this league.  My opponent and I were just discussing last night how much fun it is; we’re both in a university club, and I even run one of the college tennis clubs, and yet this is the best way of actually setting up and playing matches for us.  Very much appreciated.", 

Nick Fahy

"Blessed with great weather, and terrifically nice, fair opponents",

Johan Fourie

"This is my second round in this league and I have thoroughly enjoyed every match I've played, I've met some great people and have loads of contacts now for casual games which is fantastic, if anyone is considering joining this league I would highly recommend it, everybody is really nice and is definitely the best way to improve your tennis!"

Noah allowed me to exercise my lob and at the same time concentration, consistency, durability. It was really interesting to measure myself with him. Many points played with deuce. Many other points played with really nice and important shots. It was a pleasure."  -- Federico Antonio
Reveal CommentFederico Antonio Melillo bt Sergio Segovia Rodriguez (Apr 18) 6-3, 7-6 (7-2)

Player Comments:

  • "A really nice match. Sergio is a player with good technique and my race was often not enough to avoid the many deuce who have been there. The game was balanced, I won with a marginal gap and it took place in a friendly but at the same time challenging climate. We definitely had a great time."  -- Federico Antonio
