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 have worked in London during the week for about 3 years now, and during that period played maybe 9 or 10 rounds of the Regent Park Tennis League. I have now finished my contract so am leaving London but this is just to say thank you for your platform and organising the league. For a guy living away from home during the week, it has been a fab way to have competitive sport, exercise, make some friends, and get out in what is a gorgeous club location in the park. All upside. All the tennis has been played in the right competitive but friendly manner."

Dave Stark  

"Guess where I was yesterday? Wimbledon! I got last-mintute tickets in the last-minute ballot a few days ago - a very nice 'bonus' for joining  local tennis leagues! I had never been before, and it was great - so thanks very much!"

Collapse AllRegents Park Singles - Round 48 | Thursday 3 September 2020 to Wednesday 28 October 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 30 September 2020)

We were down to 5 groups in this round of Regents Park Tennis League and a couple of the groups were on the quiet side, however there was lots of competitive tennis in general and two of the groups were very well contested. It was great to welcome 14 new players to the league too so we hope you enjoyed getting started and look forward to seeing you back in action next round!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Mario for launching a successful defence of his Group 1 crown, winning a clean sweep of 7 matches to finish top of the table again. Three times he came from a set down to win including against fellow leftie Jose, while Jose came even closer in his match against Niccolò, just missing out on the second set tiebreak and then the deciding match tiebreak. In fact 6 matches went to match tiebreaks, none closer than Jose's [12-10] win over Evan!

Group Summary:

It was tight at the top of Group 3 as Alessio and Stefan both earned 10 points, so Alessio's win in their head to head proved the deciding factor. It could have been different if Stefan and Fred had played a match tiebreak instead of a short tiebreak in their match but as it was this counted as an unfinished match... although Stefan did go the full distance against Peter and managed to overcome his "great serves and tricky slice backhands".
