Vertical Tabs

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!

"I really enjoyed this round of tennis, all though we didn't have the best weather. Looking forward to the next round. Keeps me motivated to stay fit and improve my tennis against all different types of players. Thanks for your dedication towards setting up and maintaining these leagues, keep it up!"

"Thanks to your vision and great organisational skills I am now able to enjoy myself more in a sport. I am a league champion 22 months after first holding a tennis racket, wow!"

Seth Sarfo

"The league is a nice concept and I can see that you must put a lot of work into all of the leagues that you organise.  All the people I met were really friendly and fair in their play. I will definitely enter again later in the year," 

Lindsay Kass

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!

"Thanks once again to all the team behind the scenes doing a wonderful job organising this league."

Zafar Iqbal

"I wouldn’t be able to join any more league as I am moving abroad. I truly appreciate the effort you guys have put in this and would like to thank Nigel and you on your efforts on keeping people fit. I would miss you all and the exciting league,"

Mahesh remained undefeated in this league and was the only one to achieve his bonus points so well done for some great scheduling and tennis! Well done also to Cliff, our runner up, who was also undefeated in his matches. It would have been great to see Mahesh battle against Cliff, maybe next time! They both are returning after a break from the leagues so welcome back.
