Vertical Tabs

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.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

"Very enjoyable - took me a few matches to start playing at a decent consistent standard though! Thanks",

Pip Symington

"Thank you both for a superb league! Your professional organisation makes it all so easy for us players,"

Sang Fung

"I would like to thank you and everyone at Local Tennis Leagues for a great job in organising the local leagues. In the couple of years I’ve been here I been able to meet other players and join some teams thanks to your league. Thanks," 

Mark Young

"That’s my last match. Thank you very much for organising the league, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed playing and the way it’s set up makes it very easy to get matches played. I’ll definitely be registering for the spring league to burn off some naughty Christmas calories."

"Have enjoyed all the matches a lot and the scores don't always reflect the points..."

"Thank you for the lovely local tennis league dampeners - I used one in a game today and won - so they're awesome!"

Aldo Zammit Borda
