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

  • 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.

Collapse AllPortsmouth Singles - Round 40 | Thursday 9 January 2020 to Wednesday 4 March 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 5 February 2020)

An absolutely terrific winter round with an elements defying nearly 80 per cent of matches played. Hats off to you all, and thanks for all the great commentaries that are a fantastic testament to the action. Looking forward to the spring weather and to see who the next set of champs will be!

Group Summary:

This was a great group - and so close! So many matches played and almost everyone got their bonus points. Lots of friendly rivalries were renewed and there was 'a slightly tense title decider' between Tomasz and Joe (who tied on points) as we can imagine! Tomasz won so gets gold this time but great play all round. Well done all.

Final Rankings:

  1. Tomasz Wojtak [W6] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Joe Dobney [W6, L1] 14 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Player Comments:

  • "It has been well over 2 years since I played Jay last so it was good to have the opportunity to play each other again. Jay played an excellent first set and fully deserved to take it, playing several winners particularly off the forehand wing. I settled more into my game in the 2nd set and managed to secure an early break of serve which helped build my confidence as I went on to win the set. I think it’s fair to say the Jay’s level dropped in the final set and I managed to close out the win. Thank you Jay for the game and enjoyed our chat both before the game and after. Good luck with the rest of your matches."  -- Paul

Group Summary:

All but one possible match played here which is fantastic! Well done all and given how much tennis was played, it is not surprising that the result was so close - just one point between the winner (Dorin) and runner up (David). Some excellent matches along the way with a brilliant turnaround from David playing Maksims (5 match points saved!) and a "Very very hard game,' between the top two with champ Dorin giving all credit to David - 'Amazing player'. Congrats to both.

Group Summary:

In a nail-bitingly close group, bonus points, scheduling skill and some mighty-fine tennis made the difference! No one could keep and entirely clean sheet and that meant three if not four players were in the running for top spot. One more set won and it could have been Damian as our champ; if only Dennis had earned bonus points his head-to-head win against Matt would have seen him the champ; but Matt, with more wins than anyone else, grabs the prize. Fantastic tennis everyone!

Group Summary:

David celebrates a return to the league with an emphatic claim for promotion and a very well-deserved group win! It was a much closer affair elsewhere and, with a few matches left unplayed, it could have been closer still. Andy and Lyuba battled it out for second place, the positions in part decided by their excellent head to head. Special nod to Sarah on a very commendable debut performance. Here's to the next round!

  • "Great fun match, that was played in a very friendly atmosphere, with lots of virtual high fives and a friendly mixed doubles set afterwards. All the best to Lynne and Caron for the rest of their matches, and look forward to playing them again. Only hope it is a little warmer wind wise next time."  -- Chris

Player Comments:

  • "Another very entertaining match with Caron and Lynne featuring many competitive rallies. Glorious day for tennis too and we took the opportunity to play a couple of mixed team sets afterwards which were both very close. Thank you ladies for the game and your company and look forward to a re-match in the next round."  -- Paul
