This is how it works:

  • 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.

Player Comments:

Player Comments:

  • "My respect and gratitude to Jeremy who played really well and the match was much much closer than one could guess from the score, sorry if I was a bit too defensive. The best thing of the league is to meet new partners with whom we can then later play friendly outside of league"  -- Peter

Player Comments:

  • "Great to see Jezza again in division 1 where he can certainly hold his own. Both of us were hitting well at times and going for our shots, with a fair few of the games going to deuce, but I managed to be a little more consistent with the final shot to take the win.

Player Comments:

  • "The longest match of my life. From set 2 James changed his game and became so strong that thought wouldn't make it, especially with cramps creeping up in 3rd set. Thank you James again, I know it is very hard after a long fight and long night which could finish either way. We say A blind chicken (old chicken in my case) also finds a grain"  -- Peter
Reveal CommentRichard Cole bt Dimitrios Lantzos (Jun 22) 7-5, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Having thought that my tennis round was finished with injury after retiring in the match against Peter at the weekend, I was delighted that I'd recovered quickly enough to play again against Dimitrios. Having said that, this match was very close throughout with only a few points separating us. Dimitrios is a fine player who has an excellent court game and is very tricky to read, so I am happy to have got through this one."  -- Richard
Reveal CommentBernardo Guerreiro bt Jeremy Hewlett (Jun 21) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Very pleasant match, played in good spirits and fair line calls. If I remember correctly all except 2 games went to deuce, which shows how close the match was. Main difference was the number of double faults. This was our 3rd encounter and my first win against Jeremy. Looking forward for our next battle."  -- Bernardo

Player Comments:

  • "Francisco is such a good, fair and elegant player, I was very grateful for this event and just tried to enjoy (even if was a bit afraid of losing 6:0 after 3:0 down).
