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.

It's quite something to see him blast a winner from a deep baseline ball! My serve were on point today and a little more match fitness kept me ahead here. Once he's back to full strength I'll expect a much tougher game from him next time."  -- James

  • "Great match in very cold but still conditions. I started off serving well and keeping balls deep with plenty of topspin and dictating rallies. Ricardo hits the ball very well and absolutely blasted a few baseline winners off the forehand. When he got stuck into a point I found myself unusually camped way behind the baseline playing defensively and being moved from side to side well. I managed to keep my foot on the gas in the second set and step in a bit more. Unfortunately by the time Ricardo acclimatised to the cold, the match was stolen. Great match overall, looking forward to the next time!"  -- Rehaan

  • "A great match; was it on or off given the weather but decided to give it a shot. Match started in the rain, but the tennis gods smiled and after the fest few games the rain stopped. Really slippery courts had both of us sliding like Nadal on the clay. My serve deserted me in the first set, whilst Anthony smashed down great first and second serves, throughout the match. Moved me around the court with great drop shots and lobs. I pulled groin sliding for a drop shot in the third game, whereas Anthony took a tumble a few games later grazing elbow, and still won the point! Many games went to deuce and deuce points many times over! A really great match, in tough conditions, really evenly matched and lucky to get the win. "  -- Tony

Player Comments:

  • "Great match in tricky conditions. The court was slippery and, with the low sun, by the end of the match it was only really possible to guess at the position of the ball while playing on the north side of the court. I think there were maybe only two games in the second set that didn't go to deuce and we had some excellent rallies in there. "  -- Doug
