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.

"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

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

Johan Fourie

"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.",

  • "Alexandra park is the venue for our matches, and once again we were blessed with a fine day, although a bit windy at times. I was able to find a good rythmn from the start and so took advantage of some hesitation from Steve. There were plenty of close points and a few nice winners from both, but today my net play prevailed over Steve's defense!"  -- Claudio

Reveal CommentRichard Baish bt Nick Fahy (Sep 8) 7-5, 7-6 (7-4)

Player Comments:

  • "Cool, overcast conditions at the Leys this morning made for perfect tennis conditions, and I was delighted to get my first win on the board at this level against a fantastic opponent in Nick; one of the things I love most about these leagues are the people you meet and it was a pleasure to play in such a friendly atmosphere. The first set could have gone either way, with several flashing winners from both sides of the net. I just managed to break at the end with a couple of well-timed lobs. The second set followed a very similar pattern, with the lottery of the tie-break fortunately going in my favour. Nick played a range of delicious winners and didn't really deserve to get nothing from the tie. Thanks again, Nick, and all the best!"  -- Richard

Helen & I played in some unexpected September sun, with both sets mirroring each other: the pattern being an early break for Helen.. me working my way back in to it... then failing to serve out the set (and match)... before finally breaking again for 6-4. All good fun! Thanks."  -- Oliver

Reveal CommentLuis Castello Sola bt Nick Fahy (Sep 1) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Last and only time Nick and I played, some two years ago, the match was a marathon that lasted almost 3h and was decided 7-5 in the third set to my favor but Nick had plenty of chances to clinch that 3rd set. Also expecting an eternal batle today I brought with me extra botles of water and a couple of bananas to help me through. But this time the match was much shorter to my relief. Nick felt a bit stiff after a long match played yesterday and he was not as precise in his shots as he would like it today. Regardless, the match was very entertaining and positively we both improved our game as the match progressed. It was lovely to play with Nick again after such a long time."  -- Luis
Reveal CommentRobin Barrs bt Nick Fahy (Aug 31) 6-2, 1-6, 7-6 (7-1)

  • "A closely fought and extremely enjoyable match that ebbed and flowed and was finely decided in a third set tie break."  -- Robin
Reveal CommentLuis Castello Sola bt Richard Baish (Aug 30) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Very enjoyable match played under excellent conditions at Botley Park. Richard is extremely consistent and made rallies particularly challenging and tough. He is also capable to hit incredibly precise lobs from almost any position which made my wary aproaches to the net mostly unproductive. It was quite a long match so I felt glad it finished in straight sets. Lots of fun and a big pleasure to have met Richard."  -- Luis
Reveal CommentAndrew Tacon bt Robin Barrs (Aug 29) 6-7 (6-8), 7-5, 7-6 (7-4)

Player Comments:

  • "Very enjoyable match which became a bit of a marathon with long rallies for individual games and many games running to deuce. Absolutely nothing between us and I was relieved to squeeze through the final set. "  -- Andrew
Reveal CommentLuis Castello Sola bt Andrew Tacon (Aug 23) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Second meeting with Andrew in the last two months and a pleasure to play again with him. This time we swap the hard courts at Botley Park for a much more unusual surface, at least for me, such as the artificial grass at Stonesfield. The first set was quite close with both players holding their serve and just a break at the end was enough to clinch the set. In the second I broke twice at the beginning and then managed to keep the distance until the end. Very good and fun match with great rallies from start to finish. Hopefully we can play yet another time in the near future."  -- Luis

Various amateur players came and went on the other courts, as we battled over 3 sets full of exciting rallies. The match was very close, and was only really decided with my opponent serving at 3-4 in the final set; I eventually managed to break after an epic game of many deuces. Salem is a lovely guy and a great competitor."  -- Edward

It could have definitely been a closer one if Paul’s forehand was on play today. Good to meet Paul and spent a lovely evening on court."  -- Dimitrios
Reveal CommentChristopher Heap bt Edward Payne (Sep 12) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "The autumn weather was beginning to show during this match set in a very dark Florence Park, even the street lights along the main road were out so we were surrounded by darkness. It was really nice to meet and play Edward, who had this old guy running all over the court. Some really good rallies, especially in the 2nd set with Edward showing some great determination when winning 3 games on the trot. Fun night, great setting, great competitive game. "  -- Christopher

Reveal CommentMohamed Salem Safa bt Paul Morris (Sep 8) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Paul and I are probably about a similar standard except that Paul hit it a little too high or hit below the net. When Paul returned with a high lob I normally did the same and that's when Paul returned with a volley smash and the ball goes way out of court. But most of the time I get an undeserved points by Paul hitting the net. Sometimes we had a long volley rally where Paul managed to kept me moving left and right and then smashed the ball so hard that I could not get to it but I managed to keep my error to a minimum and that's how I won. The weather was dull and cool which was good for my tennis. Thank you for the experience Paul and best of luck in your next game . "  -- Mohamed Salem

  • "Tricky to get back on court a week after the match was suspended. A pleasure to see Chris again; I guess he was a bit more tight this time. The scoreline is definitely misleading as all games where full and close." Dimitrios

  • "Despite the final score may suggest there have been several games where multiples deuces occurred. I had to play at 100% at all the time to be sure to win the match. I think if Chris were more looking for points and less for winners the score would have probably been much closer."  -- Fabrice

Definitely a closer match than the scoreline suggests, especially in the first set. The pivotal game was in the first set when I was serving at 4-2 and 15-40 down. If Diego had converted, I think the outcome could've been different as I was definitely struggling with nerves and a lack of confidence up to that stage. Thanks for the match, Diego.
