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 17 | Thursday 20 February 2020 to Wednesday 15 April 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 18 March 2020)

Group Summary:

Certainly not the whole story, but plenty of tennis drama to ensure we have an interesting tale to tell. As the hammer fell, Tanmay had made the most progress to the group title, winning two matches, taking a point of Kaladerhan and picking up his scheduling bonus points. Tough on Martin and Kaladerhan who would definitely be hoping to chase the leader down, but Tanmay is rewarded for his proactive tennis! Here's to resuming battle in a new round soon!

Final Rankings:

  1. Tanmay Chetan 8.2 [W2, L1] 7 includes 2 bonus points
  2. Martin Halliday 8.1 [W2] 4
  3. Kaladerhan Agbontaen [W2] 4
  4. Stephen Leeke 8.1 [W1, L2] 4 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Thibault Racovski 10.1 [L4] 4 includes 2 bonus points
  6. Ignatios Charalampidis 10.1 [W1, L1] 2

Player Comments:

  • "This was a very tight match in what proved to be very challenging weather conditions at times with downpours of rain and strong gusts of wind. Nevertheless, the weather didn't stop this being a really enjoyable match with long rallies and a great topsin forehand from Thibault to compete with. I look forward to playing again soon."  -- Kaladerhan

Group Summary:

An excellent return to the league for Mark who got on with his matches, won them all and earned bonus points. Even without the lockdown, the group win would have been his. Very well done. Disappointing walkovers eased Andrew in to second place but if the round had gone on longer, the silver could have been anyone's.

Player Comments:

  • "Another slightly blustery day and it took a while to settle into the game. Many games were much closer than the score suggests and there were several rallies of 10+ shots. In the end, unforced errors and service was the difference."  -- Mark
Reveal CommentMark Frankel bt Claudia Cattell (Feb 22) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "The score was a little deceptive as a strong, gusty wind was the real winner in this match. There were a number of good rallies and tight games. In the end, however, serve, unforced errors combined with the tricky weather made the difference."  -- Mark

Group Summary:

Alex was well established as the front-runner when the curtain prematurely fell, winning three matches and picking up bonus points and the effort earns him the gold. Now, could Sarah have chased down the points to make it even closer at the top if she had been given the time? Very possibly, but that, like so much else, will have to wait for the return of tennis, for brand new rounds, and lives that return to normal. It won't be too long we are sure!

  1. Alex Routledge [W3] 8 includes 2 bonus points
  2. Sarah Taylor [W2, L1] 6 includes 2 bonus points

Player Comments:

  • "A closely contested tussle for supremacy on the windswept tarmac of Queens Park adjourned with me having sneaked the first set . A see-sawing battle saw Adriene dig in for an early lead but unfortunately for him his serve deserted him allowing me to claw my way back in. To be fought to the finish!"  -- Biswadip

Player Comments:

  • "A very enjoyable game on a nice afternoon for tennis. We both started with good holds but then struggled with double faults for much of the first set, which went down to the wire as a result.
