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!

"Great way to improve your singles game on a friendly but competitive level. I enjoyed all the games and it was nice to meet new local players. I am a big fan of Local Tennis Leagues. Great concept!" 

Alzbeta Kucerova

"Just wanted let you know, I think you guys do a great job with the leagues and I’ll be ready and raring to go for the next one," 

John Scott

"Thanks for having me in the league - I'm annoyed I haven't got time to enter the next one! Thanks so much for organising it," 

Maggie Inchley

 "Well, that's my last game done ... phew! First competition I've entered and think I have learned a lot. (apart from how to play on a pesky outdoor 'bouncy' court hehe!) Maybe next time someone will agree to play me on my home turf. It's been a really helpful experience and most enjoyable too, thanks for intoducing me to it," 

Ria Kearney

Pavilion - Avery Jackson

Player Comments:

  • "Great way to start a Sunday morning. As much as I like a leisurely coffee in bed reading the papers you just can't beat a game of tennis on a rare sunny February morning against two lovely opponents - Maria and Jim. After a first game that seemed to take an eternity with more deuces than I have fingers to count, David and I eventually won the game and took the first set. Maria and Jim started the second set strongly winning the first 3 games but David and I dug deep to eventually come out grateful winners."  -- Tony
Reveal CommentDavid Lindsey & Tony Pelaou bt Louise Sharpe & Samantha Kracmar (Feb 10) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "This was a tough match. The first set was tit for tat but David and I managed two get our noses into the lead and held on for the first set. The second set was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests both Samantha and Louise played really well, some of the returns were low and powerful and very difficult to play. We also had some good net rally's really enjoyable game that warmed up us nicely on a cold February morning."  -- Tony
