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 played to short-set format; if a set reaches 4 games all, the next game decides the set. If the match reaches a set all, a match tiebreak is played. (Long format matches may be played if both players agree.)
  • 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 and an extra a point is awarded for completing a match
  • 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.

"I just wanted to say that I very much enjoyed the league and that I shall certainly recommend it when asked about tennis in London" 

Britta Becker

Lovely people, good fun and good tennis again- thankyou for facilitating

Dave Stark

"It was a great round with a lot of nice matches, especially the one against Sebastian was very close! I had lot of fun, which, I think it is more important than winning at all costs in this context of friendly matches; although I am very happy I won. Last, I would like to dedicate this victory to Rob, Max and Mark, who supported and encouraged me all the way through this round,"

Collapse AllRegents Park Singles - Round 43 | Thursday 23 May 2019 to Wednesday 17 July 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 19 June 2019)

61 matches were played, or just over half in this round, which is not at all bad, especially as three players didn't get underway! Most of the rest of you more than made up for it, however, notching up five or 6 matches each! Many thanks for all your efforts and do get in touch another time if you are struggling, or struggling to hear back from anyone!

Group Summary:

Another great round for Ryan who repeated his performance from round 40, and tops the group without losing a match! A great round for him in a very competitive group where a high percentage of matches were played. A shame Charlie didn't get underway this time (hope you are ok), and hope to find some tougher matches for Ryan! Who can step up!

Group Summary:

After the match between Advait and Joachim, "Advait said he had two holes in his shoes because 'I made him run so much' :)" says Joachim (who later found he had a blister on his foot himself). What's more, Advait had to play most of the match with his back up racket because his strings broke in the first set. Clearly it was two hours of thumping great tennis and very well played. It all helped take Joachim to the top of this group, but Advait finished just one point behind and third place James was one point behind him. Very well played all in what was a good and competitive group.

Adi played the majority of the match with his back-up racket after his strings broke during the first set. After the match, he had two holes in his shoes because “I made him run so much”. :-) At home I realized that I had a blister on my right foot. The match also included a bit of drama from my side as I had a 6:5, 40-0 lead on my serve in the second set and Adi broke me to 6:6. Luckily, I could win the tie-break.
