This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, 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!)
  • 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 posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Collapse AllParliament Hill Singles - Round 8 | Thursday 18 July 2019 to Wednesday 11 September 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 14 August 2019)

Another good round in Parliament Hill with 63% of all possible matches played. A few players didn't get going at all which always skews the stats, so do please let us know if you are struggling another time and we will help if we can!

Group Summary:

David R moves from 3rd place last time to 1st place this time with runner up Nico making it hard for him ('an epic'). A shame Ireo had to leave two matches unfinished - we know how frustrating that can be - and sorry to see Ben didn't get underway this time. Hope you are ok and do let us know if we can help in the future.

Group Summary:

It's back to group 1 for Christopher after a very convincing group win here. He played more matches than anyone else (6) and was the only player to get his bonus points. That's definitely the way to do it! Francisco moves from 3rd place last time to 2nd this time, in part no doubt due to his devastating drop shot, "the best I've seen in these leagues" says George. Well played!

Group Summary:

Funny how sometimes you don't know how you get the win. Julian played David and couldn't get the hang of his forehands 'but managed to claw my way back into it somehow'! Then it was the other way round when he played Robert who had to make the comeback. That was very much the pattern of this extremely close and tightly fought group where everyone played almost eery match possible, except Ana who didn't get started! Hope you are ok. Cecile is the group champ having tied on points with Julian but won the head to head. Congratulations!

Group Summary:

Group champ Nigel almost won the group without dropping a set but Oly had other plans and pushed him to a great three setter. Oly also had a great match with runner up Stephen (which he won) so who knows what might have happened had he played more. But this was a busy group and you have to be in it to win it as they say. So well done Nigel and Stephen and here's to the next one!

Group Summary:

No upsets for Sebastien who eased through 4 matches without dropping a set and got his bonus points to boot. Promotion definitely beckons for him. Well done too to Elena who was runner up.
