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

"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!"

Ben Heath

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

"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",

Player Comments:

  • "This was a really good match and just goes to show why tennis is such a great sport. In the first set I was getting in my first serves and then putting away volleys which meant I was able to take the set 6-2. In the second set it was a complete reverse, with Sergio getting his first serves in and then causing me a lot of problems with his dropshot and passing shot combinations so that he took the set 6-2. The final set was neck and neck all the way with me managing to just scrape through at 6-4 at the end after being 3-4 down. An excellent match and I look forward to a rematch sometimes (but not looking forward to having to sprint to the net repeatedly to try and retrieve yet another heart breaking drop shot)!"  -- Joshua
Reveal CommentNick Fahy bt Simon Stanford (Jun 21) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Though the courts started off damp, they dried rapidly and it turned into a lovely morning for tennis. The scoreline does not some very nice rallies - we're all a bit erratic after lockdown! Best of luck to Simon for his future matches. "  -- Nick
Reveal CommentAnnabel Lloyd bt Sergio Segovia Rodriguez (Jun 21) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was a pleasure to meet and play against Sergio, heroic key worker that he is. It was only his second time ever on grass - the bounce takes getting used to - and I had the benefit of playing Alejandro on the same surface the previous Sunday. Enjoy the rest of your matches."  -- Annabel

Reveal CommentCrescenzo Ianniello bt Harry James (Jun 17) 7-6 (10-8), 6-3

Player Comments:

  • ''Great match with long rallies and great shots from both sides. It was a great pleasure to play Harry, that is why we decided to suspend the match on the 17th of June when Harry got injured (after the first set) and play again once he was fully recovered. The first set was one of the best set I ever played and I really hope to play Harry again in the future. I wish him good luck for the nest matches!'' - Crescenzo
Reveal CommentJoshua Brewer bt Crescenzo Ianniello (Jun 15) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "This was a really good match with some excellent baseline rallies. Enzo has really strong groundstrokes and I had to hang in there with the rallying because every time I tried to go to the net the ball sailed over my head for a soul-crushing lob."  -- Joshua
Reveal CommentAlejandro Rubio Diaz bt Annabel Lloyd (Jun 14) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "It was the 3rd match Annabel and I have played. We played at the bumpy grass courts in Alexandra Park. Annabel has improved her game very much, and put up a good fight in most of the games (final score doesnt reflect it, as we had lost of deuces). Hope we can play again soon!"  -- Alejandro

Reveal CommentDiego Vargas bt Jamal Ali (Jul 8) 6-1, 5-7, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable and challenging match with Jamal (despite what the score shows for the 1st and 3rd sets). Jamal played incredibly well specially on the second set with his killer slice shot working for him almost every single time he attempted it. On top of that, his flat and fast serve was really getting on my nerves during that set. We had persistent rain throughout the match, which made it even more difficult for me to get any of his 'tricky' shots back on his side! The third set could have gone either way but I suppose I had a bit more luck on my side. Many thanks."  -- Diego
Reveal CommentJamal Ali bt Lauren Hamilton (Jun 22) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Fun-in-the-sun match with Lauren this afternoon! We both served quite a few aces due to the dead grass bounces!! Some great rallies and Lauren will possibly rue not having converted many of the several break point opportunities she had. I do have to say that the grass courts at Alexandra Park are really not up to standard. Badly faded line markings and poor court maintenance made play farcical at times!! We've agreed to play again for fun on hard courts next time. Pleasure to meet and play you, Lauren. All the best with your remaining matches. "  -- Jamal
Reveal CommentJamal Ali bt Mohamed Salem Safa (Jun 22) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Totally false result. Salem hasn't played for a year & contributed too many double faults today whilst shaking off the considerable rust. My backhand worked very well today (just as well as my forehand didn't!) & I persisted with playing offensively and coming to net as much as possible as Salem likes long, protracted rallies. Thanks for the match, Salem, and great to see you again. "  -- Jamal
Reveal CommentDiego Vargas bt Joel May (Jun 19) 6-1, 7-6 (7-2)

Player Comments:

  • "Great match with Joel. Early on in the match we had challenging windy conditions with rather overcast and cloudy skies, however it turned into a lovely sunny Friday evening during the later stages of the second set. Looking back I think Joel was just warming up during the first set since the second became a much more even challenge. We fought long and heavily contested rallies. I was very lucky to have won the tiebreak to avoid the third set since it was very little between us a that point. Very enjoyable, thank you."  -- Diego
Reveal CommentNil Angli bt Lauren Hamilton (Jun 17) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Amazed at how Florence Park courts drained the downpour from an hour earlier, Lauren and I met for a fun tennis sesh. As usual, there’s much more to the story than the score, including deuces, fine rallies, and good chat. Looking forward to hitting balls again, Lauren. Good luck!"  -- Nil
Reveal CommentNil Angli bt Jamal Ali (Jun 16) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Lovely tennis this afternoon with Jamal at Bury Knowles. Returning his fast, flat serves was no easy feat, but fortunately for me the net shielded a fair few. Today the percentage of my first serves going in helped to tilt the balance in my favour, but our rallies were testing and well fought. Best of luck in your next matches, Jamal! "  -- Nil
Reveal CommentNil Angli bt Joel May (Jun 13) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Eager to start the first covid-era league, Joel and I met during a sunny Saturday in Florence park, perhaps too sunny (if serving from west end). We both had a slightly rusty start, but got into the game progressively. Joel displayed brilliant net game, and fast flat serves coming from “the other hand”. To my frustration (and satisfaction) Joel was reluctant to give up and fought the last game till to the 9th deuce. Looking forwards to playing again. Good luck!"  -- Nil
