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 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. 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
  • 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.

Player Comments:

  • "Max the gladiator!! What a match!!! Max started very strong, consistent and aggressive winning the first set en fanfare. The next 2 sets were more equal battles for each game with many many deuces and very long rallies. Cutting on the unforced errors and increasing the winners managed to win 9 games in a row despite my opponent determination. Unfortunately in the 4th game of 3rd set Max had to retire due to a toe injury which was quite scary and bloody. He is a proper fighter, very brave, diving several times on a hard court like I've never seen anyone! Aye Maximilian the gladiator, Richmond salutes you!! Mihai"  -- Mihai

Reveal CommentMaximilian Rudolf bt Hammad Siddiqui (Nov 16) 6-0, 7-6

Player Comments:

  • "Slippery match that turned into a tie-break thriller. We had to change the court after the first set due to the slippery surface which reactivated Hammad and brought him up 2:5 in the second set. Somehow I managed to get back and we reached tie-break. This was dominated by very defensive tennis as non of us felt confident to go for the winner but turned out to be a 7:5 thriller. Great second set. Good luck with the next games."  -- Maximilian

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play Dave again, even if the windy and slippery conditions made things tricky for us both.
