This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, 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!)
  • 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 posted to 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 AllQueen's Park Singles - Round 13 | Thursday 4 April 2019 to Wednesday 29 May 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 1 May 2019)

Great to have 5 groups of the Queen's Park Tennis League this time, even though a few of the groups were a bit light on matches. Despite that, plenty of high quality tennis was enjoyed by everyone, and we welcomed a number of new players to the league. We hope you've all enjoyed your tennis and will join us again as summer* gets into full swing for some sunny and warm matches in the next few months! *No sunshine guaranteed, just fun, friendly tennis!

Group Summary:

Well done Group 1 for lots of great matches, many of them played in unseasonably horrible weather - sleet, drizzle, hail, wind and rain. We hope you all managed at least one match in the Spring sunshine as well! Luca and Tanmay both moved up one place from their finishing spots in the last round, to end this one as Winner and Runner-up respectively - congratulations, and good to see them keeping their healthy rivalry going! Lots of high quality tennis from this group, with plenty of three setters, tie-breaks and tight sets recorded; we hope to see you all again in the next round for more of the same!

Group Summary:

Lots of great tennis from Group 2 in this round, and much of it played in lovely spring weather, and dare we say even too hot on occasion! Congratulations to Thibault for topping the group with 5 wins, and Alex a close second with 3, well played everyone. There was plenty of epic tennis played over 2 sessions for some players too - Thibault in particular seems to specialise in this! Also great to get an update about the Queen's Park cat... still up to its tricks and messing with tennis players! Purrfect.

Match of the Group:

Player Comments:

  • "A great and very competitive match on a sunny day in Queen’s Park. A very tight match, first set Alex came from 3-0 behind to end a very tight set 6-4. By the 2nd set it became obvious that this would be the battle of the serve with both players struggling to win their service game. Alex led for the majority of the second set, but just missed out on taking the set after a very tight tie break where some of the best tennis was played. Great game! "  -- Jack

Group Summary:

Sadly only 4 matches were played during this round, so things were a little bit quiet all round, but Congratulations go to Victoria for winning 2 matches to take victory. It's a shame her match with Alessio was unfinished, as they stopped at one set each - who know what might have happened? Alessio finishes as runner-up this time.
