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.

Mike Carrington

"I was not expecting to win the group. I am really happy about it,"

Robbie Raio

Jeffrey Smith

"Thank you for running the leagues and hope you keep increasing with participation as I'm sure you will. It's good to see everyone involved was enjoying every match and it gives everyone the chance to meet new people to play against,"

"A valuable first competitive experience. It has taught me that I can compete at a higher level and also encouraged me to work harder to be a better player,"

James Missen

"Great fun, it does pay to get your matches in early to get the 2 bonus points. I thought the standard of the group this round was stronger than last so good to see some new entries to the league.",

Jay Smith

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet Neil and it was a hard fought match played in a friendly manner in difficult windy conditions. Having trailed 5-1 in the opening set I had to fight very hard indeed to get back into it and win it. The second set wasn't as close (more so because Neil made a few mistakes), but it was an enjoyable match all the same. "  -- Terry

Player Comments:

  • "Good to play Paul today on the clay courts. Played in very good spirit and very enjoyable, the first set was over relatively quickly, but the second set was well contested and he can consider himself a little unlucky not to have gone on to claim it really having lead it with a break on three occasions. Best of luck in your remaining matches Paul! "  -- Terry

Reveal CommentPaul Whittenham bt Kieran May (Sep 7) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Absolute pleasure to meet Kieran for the first time and play our match. The score line does not tell the story of a well contested game in which we both did a lot of running in hot conditions. I was perhaps just a little too consistent today and have no doubt that the score in our next encounter will be a lot closer. Thank you Kieran and good luck with your remaining matches. "  -- Paul
Reveal CommentPaul Whittenham bt Pavel Petkov (Aug 31) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Lovely to meet Pavel and play our first ever match. Pavel started strongly a got an early break of serve which I managed to retrieve in a very tight first set. I managed to raise my level in the second set and took the match. The match was much closer than the score might suggest and it was played in great spirit. Thank you Pavel you are a very nice guy and look forward to our next meeting."  -- Paul
Reveal CommentTerry Lawrence bt Pavel Petkov (Aug 31) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Good to meet Pavel and he hit a very nice clean ball. Made a very good fightback in the first set having trailed it 5-2. The second set was over quite quickly, but more I think due to Pavel's lack of matchplay having only recently returned to competitive tennis. Keep going Pavel - it was a pleasure to play you this evening, and best of luck in your remaining match! "  -- Terry
Reveal CommentPaul Whittenham bt Dorin Vrasmas (Aug 29) 4-6, 7-5, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "My third match with Dorin with the score standing at one apiece and the anticipation of another tight contest. This looked unlikely with Dorin playing very well to lead by a set and 5-2 but then the match turned on it’s head. I tightened up my game and Dorin started to struggle, so much so that I managed to take the next 11 games to close out the match. Conditions on grass were difficult today and I feel fortunate to have won. Always good to see you Dorin and already looking forward to our next match. Good luck with the rest of your matches."  -- Paul

In the deciding set I broke in the second game, but Terry broke straight back after a mammoth game of around 10 deuces, then went with serve till the last game, with lots of really long rallies, 2.5 hours match!

Player Comments:

  • "I knew this would be tough as Dick is good team mate and we usually play a lot of doubles together. It's no surprise the first set went to a tie break as we both stubbornly held onto our service games. I managed to get off to a good start in the tie break and close it out. In damp conditions with heavy balls neither of us wanted it to go to a third so I was relieved to take the second set. Some tough points and good rallies. "  -- Jay
