Vertical Tabs

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.

 "As always it was excellent fun with some really great people.  I always recommend the league to my friends, it's such a great find," 

Katy Wealthall

"I am so happy to have the experience of playing with all of these people. Thank you for setting this up!" 

Jean Smith

"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  

"I enjoyed the league,"

Maxim Naviede

Collapse AllRegents Park Singles - Round 46 | Thursday 16 January 2020 to Wednesday 11 March 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 12 February 2020)

A curate's egg of a round as we could definitely have done with some more matches and one group didn't really get going at all. But there was also some excellent tennis played to keep the spirit of friendly, competitve tennis burning through the winter months. Hope to see you all on court again before too long.

Group Summary:

Well done to Romain for improving on his group two win of the last round to win our top group! Playing one more match than anyone else certainly helped, but crucial was his positive three/one win/loss ratio - just enough to keep him ahead of Stephen who had beaten him and earned bonus points. More matches played could have changed all this of course so really a case of who dares to play, wins!

Final Rankings:

  1. Romain Cerovic 8.1 [W3, L1] 10 WINNER
  2. Stephen Jones 6.2 [W2, L1] 9 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Alexandra Reyes bt Antoine DROUIN (Jan 19) 5-4, 5-4

Group Summary:

A much busier group than Group One as witnessed by the mighty points tallies earned by our top two - Niccolò and Markus. Both players earned their bonus points and both had to fight for their wins; keeping a clean slate proved impossible. Ultimately, it was their head-to-head that mattered most. The match didn't disappoint and over three sets, just went Niccolò. Brilliant tennis from both and all who got on court!

Group Summary:

Very well done to Marios who makes it two group wins in a row and massively upped the number of matches he played. The wins were up too, four to his couple of losses. All that made for an exciting finish and had Mark got even one more match played and won he would have caught Marios. Excellent scheduling throughout the group... all but one player got their bonus points!
