Vertical Tabs

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.

"Massive thanks once again for organising! What great fun!" 

Alex Pope
"Great to receive a prize as a winner! and thanks for getting in touch. It  was my first doubles round and I really enjoyed it. We made a great team with Dominic and managed to win the group without losing a set :) All the players were nice and friendly and it was fairly easy to arrange all matches. I will definitely play again and can only recommend. Also the response by email from the organisers is amazingly quick and they really care about all players and a smooth running of this league. Great job. Thank you" Alzabeta Kucerova

  • "Cracking first set, game for game to 4-all, with the last two hinging on a couple of points. Very tightly fought and some good tennis. Different story for the second set, the combination of Dev and Marco's speed and fitness, plus the atrocious windy conditions, made it difficult for us to make inroads.
