Every player who completes three matches by the midway point of any round is sent a FREE can of tennis balls! Plus there are great offers all the time in our shop.


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 AllRedbridge Singles - Round 44 | Thursday 27 August 2020 to Wednesday 21 October 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 23 September 2020)

It was good to see friendly, competitive tennis return to the courts of Redbridge and for this round to run to completion after the last one was cut short by coronavirus. Both groups were busy with just over two thirds of matches played in total... great effort, and we hope to see you back in the next round!

Group Summary:

It was close at the top of Group 1 with Sujeet's 6 wins being just enough to edge 2 points clear of Jayesh in runner up spot. Sadly their head to head was abandoned with Sujeet one set to the good but he completed straight sets wins in his other matches. A shout out to Liam who came through a tough encounter with Gagandeep losing a close second set tiebreak but coming back to win the third set.

Final Rankings:

  1. Sujeet Haldar 7.2 [W6, UF1] 15 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Jayesh Thawrani 10.1 [W5, L2, UF1] 13 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Player Comments:

  • "Things looked iffy with the weather before we even started with some light rain but we decided to play and see what would happen. Thankfully the rain stayed away, it was quite windy though which made serving and generally playing quite tricky but interesting. We traded breaks in both sets with Chloe hitting some really good passing shots. After playing the matches before, I learnt that you don't have to hit the ball with power to win, so with that and the conditions I managed to get over the finishing live for the first time since my first match! Overall, it was great playing with Chloe and it could've went the other way on a different day easily. I look forward to playing with her in the future. "  -- Tauseef
