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.

Collapse AllPortsmouth Doubles - Round 2 | Thursday 27 September 2018 to Wednesday 5 December 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 31 October 2018)

This was just the second round for the Portsmouth doubles league, and it was great to see a terrific turnout on court and a "very friendly atmosphere" on show too. Thanks to you all for getting involved and we hope you enjoyed it. Please continue to spread the word if you can, it would be great to see this young league grow in 2019!

Group Summary:

It was close run thing for the gold, with only one point separating the top three. Chris & Matthew notched up wins in all four of their matches to retain their group crown, though it was far from an easy ride. Fellow title challengers Martin & Tim pushed the new champs all the way in a "thoroughly enjoyable" three setter encounter that "could have gone either way". Alice & Henrietta joined Martin & Tim on seven points, thanks in part to their excellent scheduling skills, so it all comes down their head to head to determine who takes the silver. Martin & Tim stepped it up a gear in this match to take a convincing victory and become the runner ups.

You earn one point for every set you win. Players who complete three or more matches by the mid-point of the round receive 2 bonus points, and a bonus prize (typically a free can of HEAD tennis balls). In doubles, matches tied at one set all may be completed with a matchtiebreak and still count toward bonus points. Bonus prizes must be claimed within 28 days using the link posted to the player's Account page. The link is also emailed to players.

Understanding the current rankings display:
