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.

"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

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

"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!"

In the first set I was 5-2 up when Claudio start to attack the net. His volleys were technically very good and he managed to come back 5 all. Luckily with some miraculous passing shots I managed to win the set. The score doesn’t reflect the second set, with lots of long rallies and duces. Thanks Oxford tennis league. Thierry"  -- Thierry

I was really struggling with my serve in the first set and Philip took full advantage, racing ahead and playing some very smart returns on the angle and using his devilish slice. I was pleased to come through this one. All the best for your remaining matches. "  -- Louise

Player Comments:

  • "A really close match which was impossible to tell how it would finish! You had me running riot around the court trying to make your shots.. we had some great rallies and long deuces. I tried my luck at the net a few times but you figured out how to catch me off guard with those lobs! Thoroughly enjoyed it and looking forward to our next one. Thanks for the sun cream I’d definitely have burnt to a crisp. Good luck with your next matches :)"  -- Harry

Reveal CommentAnna Hirsch-Holland bt Lauren Hamilton (Sep 9) 7-5, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A really fun match with Lauren this evening, where we both had to face the added challenge of a dazzling setting sun from the eastern end of the court. We gave each other a good running around and Lauren didn't allow me an easy victory, with a significant number (majority, even?) of games going to deuce in both sets, and three match points before I clinched the deal! Thanks Lauren, and looking forward to the next time."  -- Anna
Reveal CommentJoel May bt Lauren Hamilton (Sep 6) 6-3, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Although Lauren was left feeling a little downbeat about the second set scoreline, she gave me several scares throughout the first. Both of us were struggling to hold our serves and I thought it was Lauren who was the more consistent player - playing some lovely passing shots when I tried to storm the net - until I made the decisive break and served it out. The second set was a more one-sided affair, but Lauren more than played her part in some good rallies throughout. Thanks a lot for another fun match and all the best with your remaining ones."  -- Joel

We had some very close games and you really did make me run for some of those shots.. still wouldn’t have got them anyway. It was lovely meeting you and having a nice chat after, all the best with your following matches."  -- Harry

Player Comments:

  • "A very entertaining match. Once we'd both settled into the game we played some pretty good rallies.. and about six or seven lob attempts! The games were very close and definitely some good winning points. Thoroughly enjoyed our match and all the best with your others."  -- Harry
Reveal CommentJoel May bt Anna Hirsch-Holland (Sep 1) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A really fun match with Anna this evening. The first set scoreline doesn't reflect how close many of the points were, and in the second it was a case of who was going to blink first, with many breaks of serves exchanged before I finally managed to see out the match. Anna and I had loads of good rallies and she has a solid all-round game - strong on both wings, and fast! Good luck with your remaining matches and hopefully play again sometime in the future :) "  -- Joel

  • "A really great match with Joel that truly could've gone either way, he made me work for every single point with many games going to multiple deuces. We played lots of great rallies with an excellent variety of play on both sides. Joel played some excellent points and I was lucky to keep plugging away and come through - all the best for the rest of your matches. "  -- Louise

Reveal CommentJoel May bt Philip Sanders (Aug 29) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "This was a really fun match, played against a lovely opponent in Philip. The first set was a bit of a cagey contest, with both Philip and I readily exchanging breaks before I finally managed to consolidate one of my own. I was relieved to get through the set! The second wasn't as close, but Philip played some nice shots throughout - he has some great forehand topspin - and he got me worried as I struggled to serve out the match. Thanks again, Philip, and all the best with your remaining matches :)"  -- Joel
Reveal CommentJamal Ali bt Lauren Hamilton (Aug 26) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Lauren started really well, storming into a 3-0 & double break lead, but I pulled it back to 4-4, only to then drop serve but Lauren failed to serve it out & somehow I claimed the set 7-5. Breaks a-plenty in the 2nd set but a crucial break in the 8th game gave me the chance to serve it out and despite Lauren having 15-40 and double-faulting on my 1st match point, I managed to get it done but I think I was fortunate. Overall, a bit of a nervy affair (certainly from my side) but Lauren played some great tennis with some great shots & deserves credit for it. She probably should have won. Thanks for the match and lovely to see you again, Lauren. "  -- Jamal
