This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet you George and thanks for the game. After winning the opening service game, it was all one way. George has got some good shots but needs to put them all together. It would be helpful for him to play in a lower league to develop his confidence and have more competitive matches. Stick with it as you will only improve by playing in the leagues :) "  -- Steve

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the match, Rimantas. Excellent match on a glorious afternoon. Rimantas is an very good player, clearly super fit and gets everything back and more and is the hardest person ever to lob, as he is such a giant! The score doesn't truly reflect the match as I was 3-1 up in the first set then lost the next 9 games with many being very long games with multiple deuces but Rimantas won through them all! I was pleased to have made him play well as he will win the league easily. "  -- Steve

Player Comments:

  • "Excellent match with many long rallies. Ross made a great first set comeback from 3-1 down to win. Then got my eye in, after a couple of months out with tennis elbow. Even then the score flattered, as Ross battled really well. Great to finally play each other and good luck with the rest of your matches. "  -- Steve
