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.

"I would just like to thank-you and your colleagues for the great work you have been doing with the local tennis leagues. I find it a fantastic way to get involved with local tennis and meet new rivals. I have only been playing for 1 year and I know that my progress would have been much slower if it had not been for the Pavilion league. So many thanks and I look forward to the new mens doubles league as well,"

Dan Bridge

"Found it to be thoroughly enjoyable and had a lot of fun"

Benyamen Shaukat

 "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

"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

"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

Player Comments:

  • "It's always a close encounter with Thomas with the first 5 games going to deuce. At 5-5, I went on a run of games that gave me the set and a 3-0 lead. There were opportunities in every game with great winners, drop shots and smashes. Equally the swirling wind made sure we were both red faced with double faults, shots floating out or being pushed back in. Despite my opponent getting one break back, the rest of the games went with serve and I edged another narrow set. Great competitiveness in good spirits."  -- Devrim

Collapse AllPavilion Doubles - Round 27 | Thursday 5 December 2019 to Wednesday 26 February 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 15 January 2020)

Just a small, winter-warmer of a round this time. But spring is just around the corner so do hope you can join us for more doubles action as the weather hots up!

Group Summary:

A real case of who dares wins! Jim and Maria braved the cold of a north London winter on three occasions. Now that didn't necessarily give them the best winning record (three teams all notched up a win) but by earning a point for a set won in their loss to Louise and Annabel, Jim and Maria won the points chase! Of course more matches played could well have changed things, but well done to our champs who played all their matches and topped the group!

Final Rankings:

  1. Maria Harrison & Jim Harrison [W1, L2] 3 WINNER
  2. Esther Gillham & Ewan Flynn [W1] 2 RUNNER UP
