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.

  • "Great match against a real gentleman on court. James was unlucky to start slow with a few more unforced errors making the difference. As the match went on the game became very close with many deuces and a few epic rallies - I was able to make more winners which ultimately was the difference in the second set. Great game and looking forward to our next encounter James!"  -- Gerben

  • "Epic 3-hour match against James, including 2 tie-breaks... i've managed to secure the 1st set by winning the tie-break, however James came back stronger in the 2nd set, making very few mistakes and playing aggressive at the net... going to the 3rd set, i was down for most of the set, however I've managed to secure 2 games at the end and reached 5x4. James used all his fine shots to turn it 6x5, and i was lucky to save the last game to reach 6x6. At the final tie-break, it could have gone either way.
