Revision information
Provide an explanation of the changes you are making. This will help other authors understand your motivations.

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

"It was a really competitive and enjoyable round. Played a few new faces which was good to see. All matches were played in good spirit and my tennis has improved. Really looking forward to the next round. Thanks to the organisers Nigel and Sally, doing a tremendous job,"

I would firstly like to thank you both for the wonderful organisation of this league, this was the first time I entered anything competitive and I must say the regular updates and organisation was superb. I enjoyed myself very much!

  • "Great match in not so good conditions. Stefano came out strong and lead the first set 3-1, however I managed to find my game and won 6-3. Stefano came out strong again in the second set and it was tied at 5-5 until I was able to break and win the second set. Thanks for the game!"  -- Matthew

Player Comments:

  • "One of the most unbelievable matches I have ever played; Zafar had a slow start but dominated the whole 2nd set and until 5-1 in the third one. I managed to come back by saving 3 match points and closed 7-5. What a great game....congrats to Zafar that made me work so hard! Looking forward to playing him again in the next league!"  -- Stefano
Reveal CommentZafar Iqbal bt Nikos Kouros (Feb 12) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable and competitive two sets of tennis with Nikos. Nikos had a booming first serve, very effective on this indoor court. There were some tremendous rallies in between games, with Nikos covering a few hectares. If Nikos had more consistency on his serve and groundstrokes this could easily have gone his way. And just to underline this it took me 7 match points to eventually make it over the line. Thanks Nikos. "  -- Zafar

Reveal CommentZafar Iqbal bt Matthew Ngo (Feb 5) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "First set was played under slippery conditions hence not very many long rallies. I settled in bit better then Matthew and took the first set 6-2. Second set i let a 4-1 lead slip as Matthew slowly got into the match. Matthew played some of his best tennis when the chips were down and managed to save about 4 match points. Luckily at 6-5 i closed out the game and match. If Matthew had kept his unforced errors down it could have been very different. Thanks Matthew. "  -- Zafar
